Meat Block Divider

Danfotech Defrosting System Type MBD

Danfotech Meat Block Divider (MBD) for separating frozen meat blocks helps to shorten process time and increase batch size by up to 50%. The main purpose of the meat block divider is to separate frozen products naturally, thereby creating as much meat surface as possible for optimum heat treatment in the tumbler. 

The frozen blocks are separated into individual muscles without damage to fibers and/or membranes. Separation is important both to total processing time (defrosting period) and to defrosting results. Separation before defrosting means more homogenous batches in terms of temperature and visual appearance.

Specifications of Frozen meat Blocks arriving at the MBD separator are mentioned below:
