  • Technical Specifications

    Injection Head

    This includes the injection chamber, the stripping plate and the needles. The needle characteristics vary depending on the product to be processed.

    • 2mm diameter hypodermic needles for delicate products (fish fillets, certain poultry pieces)
      3-4 mm needles with a lateral perforation for boned meat and loins of large fish (ham, bellies, pork or tuna loins)
      3-4.5mm diameter retractable needles for products with bones (hocks, ham on the bone)

    The head movement is assured by a fixed speed crank shaft.

    Blade Head

    The blade head supports large number of knives from 3-8 mm wide which are guided by a 30mm thick polyethylene plate. LUTETIA has developed mixed heads for injection and tenderizing in which needles and knives are alternated. Tenderizing heads adapted for meat destined for transformation (e.g. marinated meat) have also been developed.
