Case-ready technology for Mueller Fleisch

CFS Australia
Friday, 17 February, 2006



Due to a dramatic increase in the case-ready segment, Mueller Fleisch recently decided to invest in latest technology equipment for the further preparation of meat into minced portions.

For its application, Mueller Fleisch selected a line consisting of a CFS AutoGrind equipped with CFS MasterTrack and a CFS CombiGrind, due to its combination of performance and quality. The CFS CombiGrind combines a paddle mixer with a high-performance grinder to achieve consistent quality throughout an entire batch.

In addition, the MasterTrack fat analyser, which is fully integrated into the AutoGrind, allows inline measurement of the fat and lean content of the meat. For Mueller Fleisch, this feature was the decisive factor in its selection process.

In the MasterTrack, electromagnetic radiation is emitted as the meat passes through the AutoGrind pre-cutter. The radiation attenuates due to different absorption depending on the fat content of the meat. The transmitted radiation is measured by a detector, converting the signal into fat content. A PLC with a graphical touch screen is provided for easy control of the entire batch.

With the plant delivered and installed on time, Mueller Fleisch is now ready to enter production.
