The Tempered Block Breaker is the perfect equipment solution to:
Break Semi-Frozen Product Into Natural State
The USDA requires any product broken down into 1″ or smaller pieces to be labeled as processed. The Tempered Block Breaker breaks up semi-frozen block back into the natural pieces — meaning you don’t have to label your product as processed.
Easily Treat Product to Eliminate Bacteria
Bacteria tends to grow on the outside of a muscle. Once the product is ground, the bacteria is spread throughout the entire product batch, causing significant contaminated and wasted product. The Tempered Block Breaker allows you to spray all sides of the product muscle with citric acid (or other agents) to reduce or eliminate bacteria.
Reduce Your Workforce
The Tempered Block Breaker system only requires 4 employees to operate from the time product leaves your microwave to the time it exits the block breaker. Some customers have reported a reduction in work force from 32 employees down to 4. It also allows your plant to prep products days in advance, instead of processing the same day.
Using the Tempered Block Breaker system captures 99% of product purge (blood, water, etc), saving you product weight which saves you money.
