The patented Cozzini AR722 Emulsion/ Reduction System incorporates a controlled, variable speed pump to feed the reduction chamber. Product is force-fed into the AR722 cutting chamber from another machine, such as a horizontal screw loader.
The MultiCut cutting chamber reduces the product to the desired particle size and temperature. The versatile MultiCut cutting chamber can be used with a single plate and knife or two plates and knives.
As meat passes through the primary knife holder and emulsion/reduction plate, the knife holder cuts the particles against the surface of the plate. The cut particles then pass through the holes on the primary plate toward the secondary knife holder.
The particles are reduced once again and forced through the smaller holes of the secondary emulsion/ reduction plate. After the secondary cut, the product is discharged through the cutting head outlet pipe.
The process delivers superb repeatability of product temperature, stability and texture. A selection of knife holders, from 3 to 6 arms, and a selection of plate hole sizes, from 1.0 mm to 9.9 mm, allow infinite combinations to assure the desired texture of product. A specially designed pumping impeller allows direct discharge to hoppers, thereby eliminating kitchen carts. Start/stop automation is also available with optional hopper product sensors.
The AR722 replaces conventional bowl choppers and other types of emulsifiers as well as product handling equipment. As a result, it conserves space, eliminates direct production labor and requires much less energy to operate while increasing production.
