Trim Management System
- X-ray technology for accurate chemical lean measurements
- Batching into desired chemical lean ratio
- Available as stand-alone unit or integrated with a Marel StreamLine
- Superior bone and other contaminant detection
Precise chemical lean ratio
Using Marel’s superior grading and batching technology, the system creates different batches of a precise chemical lean ratio, based on the processor’s requirements (e.g. 50/50, 75/25 and 80/20).
The core of the Marel trim management system is the SensorX, which uses x-ray technology to scan for density variations in the product. These variations enable the SensorX to detect the presence of hazardous contaminants and decide the precise chemical lean (CL) ratio of the meat.
Fat analysis accuracy
– 25 kg crate:
For a 25 Kg/55 lbs to 100 Kg/220 lbs batch the accuracy will be
+/- 2% from the target CL, in 95% of the cases.
In other words: if CL target is 85% - then 95% of the batches are between CL83 and CL87.
– batching into large Dolavs / combos:
For a 100 Kg/220 lbs to 1000 Kg/2200 lbs batch the accuracy will be
+/- 1% from the target CL level, in 95% of the cases.
In other words: if the CL target is 85%,- 95% of the batches are between CL84 and CL86.
Innova Food Processing Software
Innova, Marel’s food processing software, gives meat processors the most effective control of their Trim Management System. The software provides historical and real-time performance data and detailed production reporting.
Control: Innova keeps track of each batch of meat and generates customized reports. This provides processors with valuable information about the raw products.
Monitor: Innova is a management tool to monitor system operations in real-time as well as collect historical data on CL ratio (fat/lean ratio), bone-rate and rate of other contaminants (glass, metal and stone). Innova provides the production manager with live views for monitoring actual performance on the x-ray machine.
Improve: By monitoring performance of key performance indicators such as CL ratio, throughput and bone detection. Innova makes it possible for production managers to analyze the resulting data in order to optimize their process and achieve the best value possible.
- Trim is transferred from the deboning line to the infeed unit. 2-4 sorting operators visually grade the trim by placing the trim pieces into one of the available buffer bins (e.g. fat, medium, lean). The bins then collect a batch of up to 5.5 kg before dropping the product onto the SensorX infeed conveyor.
- Batches enter the SensorX one by one. By scanning the meat for density variations, the SensorX is able to find the accurate CL, batch weight and detect any hazardous contaminants embedded in the meat.
- The results of each SensorX CL measurement are sent to the grading unit and the meat is sent to the allocated gate to form a large batch of the correct fat/lean ratio, specified by the processor.
- Product with hazardous contaminant such as bone, metal or glass is removed from the process, through specified reject gates.
