Meat & Poultry
Meat and poultry processing operations frequently produce a range of different by-products and leftover materials. Many of these are turned into meat, blood and bone meals used as commodity products or as components in animal feed.
However, there is a growing worldwide awareness that such leftovers and other materials previously considered waste or as of low value can instead be a rich source of high-value edible proteins with a wide range of attractive uses and considerable commercial potential. HRS is a pioneer in this high-growth field.
HRS can help you process virtually all kinds of meat and poultry into products with better quality, at lower cost and with less waste, lower energy consumption and more effective recovery of valuable by-products.
HRS Heat Exchangers can provide the full spectrum of capabilities, ranging from complete processing installations to pre-engineered modules and individual items of specialist equipment. These can help improve key operating parameters for processing bone, skimmings’ blood and blood plasma, fats and oils, gelatine, MDM and edible protein components.
Customers can also make use of HRS’ practical know-how and experience to help extend, improve and fine-tune their entire meat or poultry processing lines.
In chicken processing plants HRS Heat Exchangers has successfully used its Unicus Series of scraped surface heat exchangers in several difficult applications, including:
- Cooling chicken viscera
- Cooling a pet food mixture of heads and feet
- Cooling chicken carcases
Within the meat producing sector in there are a number of applications where either the HRS Unicus Series or one of our range of corrugated tube heat exchangers can be used:
- Cooling Mechanically Deboned Meat (MDM)
- Heating and cooling blood
