GEA EcoCut 225

Overview

The GEA EcoCut 225 continuously produces sausage emulsions ranging from extremely fine to coarse emulsions. It features automated knife adjustment (AKA), allowing product structure, emulsion stability and temperature to be carefully controlled. This ensures constant end product quality and stability, regardless of variations in raw material or surrounding conditions. The automated knife adjustment system further reduces running costs to a minimum. In addition to production of bulk emulsion in line applications, the GEA EcoCut 225 also has the flexibility to produce small batches. Particles of bone, gristle and other impurities can potentially block the product flow through a hole-plate. Such particles are removed from the product by the GEA EcoBes sorting device - at the same time improving the end product quality as a result of the bone and gristle removal.

Working principle

The GEA EcoCut 225 is a heavy-duty industrial emulsifier for the broadest possible product range. Double or triple knife set configuration for extremely fine or coarsely ground emulsions. A double knife set is recommended for coarser emulsions and the triple knife set for fine emulsions. A cassette is assembled and adjusted prior to fitting to the machine, so cutting sets can be rapidly changed.

  • Double or triple knife set
  • Cassette mounted double- and triple-knife sets for fast changeover 

Performance

The cutting set of the GEA EcoCut 225 finely comminutes and emulsifies sausage pre-blends. The product is fed to the emulsifier by a separate feeding pump - very often a GEA VanePump SF or DF. Forced and controlled feeding by a pump provides an emulsifying system capable of handling virtually every type of product on the market, irrespective of product viscosity. Furthermore, it is very little sensitive to any temperature or viscosity variation in the raw materials. Adjustment of the pump speed, and thereby the throughput speed, is a very simple and effective way to achieve finer or coarser product structure and to control the temperature increase.

  • Constant product structure and temperature increase
  • Accurate control over emulsion quality, fineness and temperature
  • Extremely versatile 

Output quality

The automated knife adjustment ensures a clean cut from start to finish. Furthermore, it prevents metal contamination of the product.The integrated hard particle removal system (EcoBes) leads to improved end-product quality. A knife on the outlet side of the last hole-plate ensures that no larger particles can escape the cutting set.

  • Clean cut
  • Minimized metal contamination
  • EcoBes
  • Outlet knife

Flexibility

The optional variable knife speed offers great flexibility in combination with the TemBiVac unit. A high degree of emulsification is achieved even on a coarse structured product.
