Advanced Meat Recovery Systems "The Bone Cannon"

BFD's line of Hydrauhopp Advanced Meat Recovery Systems provides our partners with the most efficient, highest yielding systems available.

The system recovers residual meat from bones in a manner that the highest possible quality product is obtained. The product has a good and appetizing look because the original structure of the meat is still intact, and is equal to raw minced meat.

 

The meat that is recovered from the bones by using this system permit further food processing and forming that is unlimited. The product, be it pork, beef, mutton or poultry, is now classified as: 'Meat consistent with that produced by hand deboning, including that which is obtained by using mechanical knives'.

 

  • Simple to Operate
  • Minimal Maintenance
  • Ease of Sanitation

Technology

The Operation

The Hydrau System is controlled by a Programmable Logic Control (PLC). The pressure as well as the pressing time can be easily adjusted as required. The pressure is controlled by a special electronic proportionally controlled hydraulic pump.

 

Installation and Maintenance

As the machines are all free standing, installation is simple. The system has been designed for minimum maintenance. Complies with all normal safety and electric standards.

Presizer

The Presizer

To ensure a consistent input and product flow to the Hydrau Separator, the Presizer reduces any type of bones to a length of 15 cm (6") at a rate of 3,600 kg (8.000 pounds) per hour.

 

The Presizer has been designed with a minimum of moving parts to reduce maintenance and to optimize cleaning and hygiene. The principle of the Presizer is the utilization of hydraulic pressure against a moving wall, which in turn pushes the bones through a stainless steel grid. The presized bones are now in a format which is readily acceptable to the Hydrau Separator.

Hydrau Separator

The Hydrau Separator

The principle of the Hydrau Separator system works on the basis of two different grades of solids in which bones are the harder grade, and meat is the softer grade.

 

The bones from the Presizer are introduced to the Hydrau Separator via its automatic feeding system. The system automatically loads batches of 20 kg (45 pounds) of bones into the pressing tube, at the end of which is the separation filter. This is sealed off by a counteram head, the counteram head contains a further conical filter to ensure separation of product at the center of the bone pad. The bones are pushed down the pressing tube by the pressing piston and into the separation chamber. When they reach the counteram head and filter, the bones are pressed at high pressure between the two opposed hydraulic cylinders. As the bones compress, the meat is pushed through the filters and away from the machine via the product outlet. The counteram then retracts and the pressing piston advances through the separation chamber to eject the bonepad. Our fastest machine's hourly throughput is 8000 lbs.

 

By virtue of this process, the bones are not crushed or severely broken, but in the majority remain intact, which avoids high calcium and iron contents in the final product. The few bone fragments and sinew that are in the meat product are removed by a second stage belt separator. Yield returns will of course vary boning standards, but the bones ejected from the system are reasonably clean from residual meat.

Belt Separator

The Belt Separator

The product outlet from the Hydrau Separator is connected directly to the third and final part of the system, the Belt Separator.

The new Hydrau Separator operates with new filters at lower pressures. The filters are designed to minimize temperature rise.

The Belt Separator removes bone particles from the meat using the following principle:

  1. The meat and bone particles are fed between a bilt and drum.
  2. This drum has filter holes through which the meat is forced by the belt, leaving the bone particles on the surface.
  3. The bone particles are then removed by a knife.
  4. Because there are only a few bone particles to be removed, the belt tension and subsequent pressure on the meat is minimal. This results in minimal temperature rise and avoids structural damage to the meat.

Raw Material

Raw Material

The Hydrau System has been developed especially for red meat. The quality of the meat after processing is equal to the quality of the raw material. The Hydrau System offers high yields and excellent meat structure with minimal temperature rise.
