Homogeneous brines and marinades are a critical factor in the marination process. The application-based venturi/ pump combinations of the GEA ScanBrine delivers perfect mixing from light brines up to heavy marinades. The machine features modular mixing and storage tanks from 500 to 3000 liters, making it possible to expand the system and increase capacity. It is equipped with a single-speed stirring device and easy to operate control panel.
The mixing tank is first filled with fresh water and the dry ingredients are loaded into the hopper. Then the water starts to circulate and the automatic hopper valve is opened. An advanced venturi pump circuit ensures the ingredients are dissolved and premixed into a
liquid, before entering the mixing tank. The stirring device has two three-wing propellers. After mixing, the brine is pumped into the storage tank, and injector brine tank or another site.
• Fill with fresh water and load dry ingredients

• Two three-wing propellers
• After mixing, brine is pumped into the storage tank
An advanced venturi pump circuit, with easy-to-change application-dependent nozzles, ensures the ingredients are dissolved and premixed into the liquid, before entering the mixing tank. Even working with materials which are difficult to mix, complete homogeneity can be obtained. Features like a pressure transducer for automatic water dosing, level control and pump protection in combination with the ingredient hopper that is placed at an ergonomically height, ensure this machine is easy to use.
• Modular and flexible design
• An advanced venturi pump circuit
• Complete homogeneity can be obtained
Thermal insulation and a cooling jacket with temperature control to maximize yield can also be specified. Other options include a 2-speed stirring device to prevent heavy marinades from separation of ingredients, a vacuum lid on ingredient hopper to prevent foaming, platforms, transport pump and an extra venturi adjustment set.
The GEA ScanBrine is developed to the latest hygiene standards for efficient cleaning and improved food safety. All motors and gears are placed underneath the tank, away from the food zone to eliminate the risk of brine contamination. The highly accessible, self-draining design of tanks, pipes and pump make it fast and easy to inspect and clean the machine. The hopper is electro polished, while the transparent acrylic lids (FDA approved) prevent sediment and liquid falling into the tank and provide visual status of the brine volume.

The GEA AccuJector is designed for small meat parts such as boneless and bone-in poultry, beef steaks and pork filets and low-profile fish. It has the closest needle pattern available today for accurate brine distribution and leaves minimal needle marks on skin-on products. Because of the close needle pattern, for some applications tumbling is not required, so the machine can run in-line and products can be packed immediately after injection or transported directly onto a further processing line.
Injected and marinated fresh poultry products are gaining market share quickly. It is providing a “win-win-win” situation for producers, resellers and end consumers alike. If you do it right. GEA's solutions for fresh injecting in combination with marinating as an optional second step enables impressive long term brine retention, guarantees the smallest possible variances and reduces brine and marinade losses. All while improving product appearance and juiciness.
Benefit from GEA’s cutting edge brine injection system for the industrial marination of cooked ham products.
The GEA ValueJector is a robust, symmetric brine injector with constant product movement and even brine distribution from top to bottom. Equipped with product height sensing, excess brine is limited. Injection during down- and upstroke ensures high injection levels. There are two variations, one for bone-in products like whole chicken and one for boneless products like pork pieces.
The GEA YieldJector is a heavy-duty application based injector with a fine injection pattern for high accuracy injection of low profile and sensitive products. It can inject boneless and bone-in pork, beef, poultry and fish products. Based on a belt principle, the GEA YieldJector has manual operation. The GEA YieldJector has a conveyor belt and is controlled via an operator friendly PLC with touch panel.
