Our innovative and unique Tempered Block Breaker is designed to take tempered and semi-frozen beef trim blocks and separate them back into their natural pieces to avoid USDA relabeling regulations. This allows for spraying of citric acid (or other agents) onto each side of product muscle to reduce or eliminate bacteria growth.
Many processors are utilizing the Tempered Block Breaker to help prevent e. coli contamination and subsequent costly recall and lawsuits.
Solid 4” solid shafts with 7” blades are strong enough to handle meat trim blocks semi-frozen at 19°, but operates ideally when blocks are tempered to 26°. Gentle processing captures 99% of product purge, retaining product weight and saving you money.
Safety is key in the meat processing industry. The Tempered Block Breaker boasts a safety switch and actuator on the auger discharge trough that prevents the machine from running if guarding is not in place. Safety guarding runs the length of the top of the machine, preventing operators from falling into the breaker.
Separate tempered trim blocks, save purge, reduce expenses, and treat product to eliminate bacteria with the Tempered Block Breaker!
