Poultry processing is an application where vacuum is applied in the conversion of live poultry into raw poultry fit for human consumption. This vacuum application continues to grow in the food industry. The reason being is poultry maintains a good reputation as there are no religious restrictions, it is low in fat and lightweight, which makes it easy for good meat to be extracted.
Suction Capacity: 115 to 5,200 ACFM (195 to 8,900 m3/h)
Vacuum Range: 1 inHgA (33 mbar abs.)
Suction Capacity: 115 to 830 ACFM (195 to 1,400 m3/h)
Vacuum Range: 2 inHgA (67 mbar abs.)
NASH liquid ring vacuum pumps administer vacuum to remove unwanted portions of poultry. Vacuum is applied to processes such as evisceration, vacuum conveying, marinated vacuum pan as well as cookers and fryers to prepare the poultry for packaging and human consumption.
NASH vacuum systems are applied in poultry processing to save energy and provide reliable solutions. Production is optimized in poultry processing with NASH vacuum pumps.
In poultry processing, the product is first eviscerated under vacuum up to 29 in. based on process conditions. Evisceration uses vacuum to remove feathers and internal organs effectively and hygienically without risk of contamination.
Vacuum conveying is a dirty application in poultry processing. Waste products are transferred from one pipeline to another during vacuum conveying. This is a challenging application because high velocity and limited pipe lengths are required. Therefore, NASH creates vacuum to move material safely and efficiently.
Before the poultry is cooked or shipped to the end-user, it is marinated in vacuum pans. During this process, the poultry is marinated under vacuum to open the cellular structure allowing for quicker marination.
The final stage for vacuum during poultry processing is the fryers and cookers. Vacuum is pulled on the fryers or cookers to lower the boiling point of oil or water. This saves energy for cooking the final product.
These systems are held to the highest standard of reliability and manufactured to achieve optimum performance and unprecedented production efficiencies. Vectra XL liquid ring vacuum pumps are a revolutionary line of economical pumps that are of great value to customers.
NASH Vectra XL liquid ring vacuum pumps excel in applications, such as poultry processing, that require discharging against positive backpressure.
