Marel Platino Flattener for poultry and meat

Monday, 04 November, 2013 | Supplied by: Marel



As part of its Meat and Poultry Processing range, Marel has available the Platino Flattener. The flattener improves water-holding capacity and is claimed to give meat products with quality bite, texture and taste.

To be flattened, meat products pass through the top and bottom belt of the flattener, putting less pressure on the meat by massaging it over a shorter period of time than other flattening equipment.

The flattener’s massaging technology slightly breaks down collagen, changes the fibre and opens up the membrane of the meat, allowing extended access to functional myosin proteins. This makes the product more pliable, which results in increased and faster brine or marinade absorption during tumbling, the company says.

There is no ripping of the meat fibres during the process and less product bounce-back after flattening. According to Marel, the product will form and hold together better after protein coagulation during cooking.

Using the flattener leads to reduced fines, fewer transfer point losses and more pieces within specifications, the company claims.

The Platino can be integrated with other Marel equipment, such as the OptiCut, the StripCutter, the SmartSplitter and the PortionCutter I-Cut 22 and 55.
