Bacon Presses

Optimize slicing yields by maintaining uniformity of bacon bellies.

  • Capable of pressing from 8 to 18 bellies per minute
  • Ideal compacting temperatures of 16°-19° F (-7° to -9° C)
  • Die set sizes and shapes based on customer requirements
  • Fully automated loading and unloading option for all presses

Defrost Systems

The automated thawing system involves dividing frozen meat blocks and transporting them to a temperature controlled tumbler unit.  Frozen blocks can be separated into single whole muscles without damaging the fibers or membranes.

  • Preserve the quality of the meat
  • No dripping or protein loss during thawing
  • Shorter processing times mean lower risk of introducing bacterial contamination
  • Transport systems can load a row of tumbler units with product to be thawed
  • Transfer thawed product directly to injection and tenderizing, tumbling or stuffing operations

Ham Production Lines

The fully automated HPT ham production system ensures efficiency and savings in manpower.

  • The only manual operation is placing ham into the molds
  • Gain a 40% capacity increase from your existing cooking/cooling equipment
  • Produce up to 300,000 lbs. of ham per day
