The next step in RevoPortioner technology

RevoPortioner Helix drum technology

At Anuga FoodTec 2018 Marel proudly presents the Helix Drum Technology. This patented forming technology for the highly regarded RevoPortioner offers profitable advantages. The pressure of the meat pump is more consistent with smaller peaks. This leads to less wear and tear of the whole system, a more reliable, robust process. Most important: it enables a much higher production volume.
 

Helix Drum Technology changes rotational intermitting low pressure forming into continuous filling.
 

Key element of the Helix Drum Technology is the layout of the RevoPortioner forming drum. A classic RevoPortioner drum consists of a number of straight rows of products. In the patented Helix Drum products are positioned along a helix shaped line, leading to continuous filling. The pump has virtually no start-stop moments; the pressure peaks of the pump are much smaller. 

This has various profitable advantages: most important is the increase in production volume. Furthermore the RevoPortioner system experiences less wear and tear and the production is - although already very smooth- even more reliable and robust. The meat flow is constant, supporting an optimum and more consistent end product.
 

Helix Drum Technology is the next step in RevoPortioner technology

20 years ago the Marel RevoPortioner development was a revolutionary step. High pressure forming with plates became low pressure rotational forming. It reduced the loss of raw material to almost 0%. It also enabled the production of emulsion free whole muscle poultry products and soon became the global benchmark in optimum product consistency, combining high product quality with high production volumes. During the following years several developments were launched and fully embraced by the food industry.

Now the Helix Drum Technology transforms rotational forming into continuous filling. The advantages reconfirm and strengthen the top position RevoPortioner has globally. With 500 units sold, a proven track record in all proteins and the acknowledgements of al globally leading QSR certified companies, the Marel RevoPortioner community is proud of this new next step.
