The GEA EcoCut 175 continuously produces sausage emulsions ranging from fine to coarse emulsions. The GEA EcoCut 175 is with wheels and takes up very little floor space, and fits perfectly into most production lines as an in-line machine or separately under the discharge of another machine, typically a mixer. The machine is available with a manual knife tensioning system. The optional PLC-controlled Dynamic Automatic Knife tension System (DAKS) will ensure even more perfect cutting and prolonged cutting set lifetime. Correct knife pressure during operation is important with respect to cost of ownership and it is also the most vital factor in securing good and stable emulsion quality. The typical capacity range is 4 to 6 tons per hour. 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 end-product quality as a result of bone and gristle removal.
