NEEDLE HEADS
OVERVIEW

One of the most important components of an injector-tenderizer machine is of course the needle head. Here quality is of the essence as hygiene and durability are inextricably linked to how well the needle performs day after day.

Needle heads MEAT

The excellence of Fomaco's innovative designs is especially found in the design of our various needle heads. We have developed needle heads to cover every product from fragile tissue injection to injection of bone-in meat products and for injection of both brine and marinade. There is a needle head for every need.

MP14 Needle head

With a stroke height of 0-240 mm, a max product clearance of 200 mm and a design for both bone-in and boneless meat products the MP14 is the most flexible needle head in the M3 range.

Due to the dual pressure air cylinders the stripper feet can apply low pressure to the product on the downstroke and an increased pressure on the upstroke. Because the stripper feet have an exceptional hold on the product the injection is controlled on both the down- and upstroke, making the MP14 extremely precise.

Moreover, the needle head can be setup with differential injection allowing for an optimized production of full middles or back bacon curing. This combined with the numerous needle options and the ability to quickly change the full needle cassette makes the MP14 adaptable to all production requirements.

DESIGNED FOR
QUICK AND EASY CLEANING

With the MP14 quick release system you can dismantle the full needle cassette in a matter of seconds. Inspection, cleaning and disinfection has never been easier!

This also allows for an instant exchange with a clean needle cassette.

In addition, the needle head features:

  • A self-cleaning seat valve design
  • Designed as a pump-to-product system for improved hygiene
  • A wash table for all loose parts during cleaning
  • Designed with a self-cleaning brine distribution channel for improved hygiene

BLP DS & BLP 120 Needle heads

Designed for boneless products the BLP DS needle head series is especially suitable for high volume processing of products such as back-bacon, full middles and pork loins. The sectional stripping system fully controls the products during injection while the brine valves activates only when in the product, giving a supreme flow control.


Moreover, differential pressure can be applied across the belt, allowing the desired injection percentage to be distributed evenly and with the highest degree of accuracy. This has proven to be especially useful when processing products such as high quality back bacon and full middles.
