Transcript of Townsend Skinning Principle - Marel · PDF fileTownsend Skinning Principle Ray Townsend...

  • Townsend Skinning PrincipleRay Townsend invented the first pork skinner and his Townsend Skinning Principles in 1946. Ever since, Townsend Skinners have led the industry. All Marel skinning products are still based on the Townsend Skinning Principles which consist of three components: Pressure applied by the shoe and blade clamp; Pulling Power provided by the tooth roll; a Sharp Blade. The three principles work in unison to assure maximum machine performance and yield earning potential.

    Sharp Blade Townsend No-Load Blades are manufactured to resist nicks and cuts and minimize wear. The reduced wear decreases drag and energy demands from both machine and operator.

    Pulling Power Forward motion produced by the tooth roll grabs and pulls product toward and across the blade. The tooth roll and blade must maintain factory set tolerance and work in conjunction with one another.

    Pressure Precise top pressure on the product will allow the shoe to float during skinning and visibly move away from the tooth roll as product advances across the skinning surface.

    Open Top SkinnersOur open-top line of skinners offer a variety of machines designed to remove skin and membrane from a wide variety of meat products without the loss of valuable meat.

    Each of our Townsend skinning machines have been designed to perform at optimal levels to give you the highest yields on the market. Although each skinner is specialized, they all work under the same basic principle invented by Ray Townsend in 1946.

    Conveyorized SkinnersOur Townsend conveyorized skinners are designed to remove skin or membrane from products and provide you the best yields on the market.

    Each machine includes an infeed conveyor that carries product to the skinning mechanism. The infeed conveyor also prevents direct contact by the operator with the skinning mechanism for an extra level of safety. An exit conveyor transfers the skinned product onto receiving conveyors or tables for further processing.

    TrimmersOur Townsend trimmers are designed to remove plates of fat and skin from various cuts of meat, individually matching the thickness of the cut to the thickness of the fat cover on the individual piece of meat product.

    These machines have infeed and exit conveyors to automatically transport the meat product to and from the defatting mechanism, allowing the operator to stay free of any parts that could cause personal injury.

    InjectorsTownsend injectors are designed with a variety of features and benefits that continue the Marel reputation of innovation and reliability for food processing solutions. Whether you are injecting bacon or chicken breasts, our line of injectors will optimize the amount of brine injected and increase the brine retention in your products. This is done with our proven pumping system, needle configuration and needle design.
