FOR MEAT PROCESSING
In addition to fresh meat, there is the processed meat, where the conservation is possible through thermal treatments as cooking, smoking etc.
Tinned meats and cured meats are really appreciated on the Italian market and for them are used different systems for meat conservation.
Canning is a process which permits meat conservation thanks to procedures in autoclaves which sterilize the product in hygienic conditions and appropriate temperature and pressure. On the contrary, meat products are prepared as whole pieces or as fresh meat mixture and inserted in natural or synthetic casings to which are added ingredients as salt, pepper and other spices to permit the conservation over the years. The products stored inside a casing are called “insaccati” (cured meats).
The greatest part of the meat processing takes place through heat and that’s why ELMITI heaters are used in this sector.
Electric heaters for meat processing are the following:
- Immersion heaters
- Bended heaters
- Heaters for air
- Infrared ceramic heaters
- Cartridge heaters
- Band heaters
- Thermocouples and themistorsa
- Cables and sheaths
