Lübeck, Germany-based processing equipment firm BAADER has introduced a new machine capable of separating soft and solid protein components for providers looking to glean more from their raw materials: the BAADER 608.
Available for sale since 22 April, the BAADER 608 is the latest innovation from the developer that supports the “baadering” process, a method that has existed for over 50 years and involves “gentle product refinement with maximum resource appreciation and value-creation,” the company said.
The BAADER 608 takes the “baadering technology machine family” to the next level, BAADER said, with its improved design setting “new standards for food quality, value-creation, and process safety, as well as for user-friendliness.”
“This technology helps produce the highest-quality ground meat – free of bone, cartilage, and sinews, ensuring the highest possible yield. Not only is the complex process of BAADERING a significant time-saver, it also provides decisive advantages to the quality of the processed goods,” the company said.
For seafood processors, equipment like the BAADER 608 can “add value to otherwise unused raw materials like salmon skin,” BAADER said. They can also use “baadering” technology to apply seafood to “medical products, for pet food, or as a dried snack for human consumption,” according to the company.
Designed to raise “the benchmark for hygiene and food safety,” the BAADER 608 possesses drainage slants on and in its housing to help ensure that water drains away from anywhere, the firm said.
“The interior of the machine and the control cabinet are easy to access. The front panel is quickly opened and requires no tools so production can be resumed without unnecessary delays,” BAADER said. “A discharge belt for byproducts maintains process reliability. The BAADER 608 has a new kind of product scraper that conveys the product from the machine with maximum care. This significantly reduces contact between the product and the machine, ensuring it retains its structure.”
The new layout of the BAADER 608 also makes it possible to dispense with support rollers, BAADER said, and the machine’s pressure roller “can be lowered even further for better handling, cleaning and adjustment options.”
“Process safety is further increased by automatic adjustment of the squeezing belt and the support chain tension,” BAADER added. “Another aspect on the topic of user-friendliness and process safety is the new hydraulic perforated drum tension. The touch display makes operating the BAADER 608 very simple. Various parameters can be set for different products and retrieved at any time, ensuring consistent quality and yield. Changing these settings is also very easy. The machine is ready for the future and comes with an interface for further data processing.”
