NEEDLE HEADS
OVERVIEW

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

Needle heads POULTRY

The excellence of the Fomaco 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 allowing for an optimized production of salmon curing, for instance. 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. 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 Needle head

The BLP needle head developed for boneless meat products is the perfect choice for high volume production, as it enables you to achieve impressive output rates ranging from 1-15 ton/hr depending on product and injection level. Due to the large amount of needles and the extremely close needle pattern the BLP needle head is especially suited for delicate products.

 

The BLP needle head is constructed as a pump-to-product system ensuring an optimized brine flow as well as
eliminating sediment build-up. The high performance centrifugal pump provides a constant brine pressure irrespective of the number of needles in the product, giving a uniform brine distribution regardless of product size.

DESIGNED FOR
QUICK AND EASY CLEANING

With the BLP 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:

  • Designed as a pump-to-product system for improved hygiene
  • A wash table for all loose parts during cleaning
  • Improved cleaning functionality for needles and lower needle head section
