Filogrind Mod. 5500

Meat tenderizing machines


The FILOGRIND Mod. 5500 Meat Tenderizers produce a multitude of cuts in the meat muscle, increasing the surface for extraction of myofibrillar proteins, reducing cooking loss, improving yield, minimizing defects in intermuscular binding and preventing the appearance of holes in the product's slice, being specially adapted to the manufacture of sliced products, as well as to high-yield, in products with a high connective tissue content and cook-in products. Provides for a better distribution of the brine ingredients, improving standard deviations in the analytical results of the finished product.

  • Two roller-knives (or roller-prongs) through which the meat passes by free-fall system.
  • Adjustable distance between roller-knives.
  • Compensatory shock absorber for tough meats.
  • Possibility of blocking the movable roller to obtain a higher tenderization.
  • Possibility of fixed roller speed variation to obtain a higher tenderization.
  • Possibility of combining all the above options to obtain a much higher tenderization.
  • Interchangeable blank roller for working with skin-on products.
  • Easy access for maintenance, cleaning and sanitation.
  • Upon request, an infeed conveyor belt can be provided.
