Brine preparation


The BRINMIX brine preparation systems provide for fast, controlled and efficient preparation of any type of brine or marinade. Available in four models (BRINMIX 500, 1000, 1500 and 2000), they allow for brine preparation in batches of up to 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 l. respectively. Upon request, models for larger-sized batches can be constructed. The ergonomic system of addition of ingredients through the hopper with venturi suction and recirculation pump with a high flow rate ensures the creation of strong turbulence in the center of the liquid, resulting in fast dissolution of the brine. Optionally, the unit can be equipped with a MOLISTICK crushing mill, an indispensable element for obtaining maximum performance of dispersed ingredients such as carrageenans. Combined with insulated and/or refrigerated accumulation tanks, allows for adapting complete brine preparation and accumulation plants, with optional touch screen that provides graphic control of brine flow between the tanks and from the tanks to the injector.

Conical loading hopper with safety grate to keep foreign bodies out that can be equipped with an optional innovative automatic locking system in the ingredient inlet valve that actuates when the hopper is empty, thereby minimizing formation of foam. Cylindrical preparation tank with cover and support for optional MOLISTICK and semi-spherical bottom. Optional insulated cooling jacket with automatic temperature control connectable to the plant’s cooling circuit or to an optional cooling unit. Optional system of automatic valves for brine distribution to the injector, additional accumulation tanks or any other point necessary in the production line. Optional touch screen with control of temperature, mixing times and liquid measure counter for the preparation water, with graphic control of brine flow between tanks and to the injector, and integrated maintenance assistant. Maximum easiness of cleaning and sanitation, with hygienic connections in all elements and optional CIP nozzles for cleaning the tanks.

The system can be provided with a cooling uint model BRINTHERM, when necessary, to cool the water fed into the Brinmix unit and thereby prevent ice from entering the tank for cooling/maintaining the desired brine temperature. The BRINTHERM unit can also be provided to lower and maintain brine temperature in the Brinmix unit, or in the accumulation tanks, depending on the configuration of the installation, in order to supply brine at the desired temperature, either to the injector’s filter or to any other point necessary in the production line.

Production capacity depends on the characteristics of the product and the production line. Please, consult with Metalquimia.
