Blending Tumblers

The patented Blentech ‘wave-vane’ system are blending tumblers that overcomes the disadvantages of other designs by delivering strength in effective end-to-end mixing, tumbling and rapid discharge. The ‘wave-vane’ system is excellent for a wide variety of products. The smooth curvature of the helical vanes is gentle on products such as skinless bone-in chicken, beef rounds with minimal degradation when tumbling bone-in hams.

The gentle end-to-end mixing assures even distribution of curing liquids and marinades throughout sectioned and formed products while maximising protein extraction for better binding of whole-muscle products.  Yields of cooked and smoked products are improved because the brine solution is stabilized evenly throughout the cell structure of the meat during the vacuum marinating process, resulting in improved liquid retention in comparison to other vane designs.

Range of Products & Application

The chilling/marinating blending tumblers are ideally suited for brining, marinating and chilling bone-in, whole muscle or sectioned meat products including, but not limited to poultry, pork and beef.
