Why choose sausage processing machines?
Sausage also named ham is a kind of delicious food which is very popular among many countries, and nearly all the people of all ages like to eat sausages. So that the sausage-making market is very promising for a lot of enterprises. Though we can make the sausage by hand in the small workshop, the sausage yield is quite limited and it is not easy to ensure the sausage quality. The sausage production line can make high-quality sausage on a large scale with a whole set of sausage makers. From the first stage of meat cutting to the final stage of sausages packing, there will be no pollutants occurred and the sausage tastes as good as the hand-made sausages.
The working process of the sausage production line
1. Meat cutting and meat grinding
Usually, we use pork meat as the main raw material for making sausages. We should cut the meat into small blocks and then grind the meat into small pieces. This meat grinder machine is very useful for grinding both fresh and frozen meat. Before grinding the fresh and boneless meat, we may need a meat cutter for cutting the big meat blocks into small blocks so that it will be convenient for further grinding.
2. Meat chopping and mixing
This kind of meat processing machine mainly can further cut and mix the ground meat for making sausages. Its special cutter plate can imitate the labor chopping of the meat. With the assistance of this meat chopping machine, the pork meat can be cut into fine meat mash. And according to different customer’s requirements for making special sausage with a certain taste, the crushing degree of the meat can be adjusted. Besides, due to its inner mixing shaft, this machine also has the function of stirring the meat mashes, therefore, customers can use this machine as a stuffing mixer by adding the seasonings for well stirring.
3. Stuffing mixing
The next step for processing sausages during this sausage production line is the stuffing mixture. This stuffing machine has a U type mixing barrel for stirring and mixing the meat mashes and the seasonings. Put a certain amount of meat mashes and seasonings in a certain proportion into the mixer, then start this machine for stirring. After 1-3 minutes, the sausage stuffing will be mixed evenly. The parts of the machine that come into contact with the meat are made of stainless steel. Customers can also choose the vacuum type of stuffing machine for ensuring better tastes of the sausages.
4. Sausage filling
After stuffing mixing, we need the sausage filling machine (also named sausage stuffer machine) for filling the sausage stuffing into the animal casings. We can math with a sausage casing machine for sausage filling. The common animal casings are mainly the pork casing and sheep casing. The diameter of the final sausage can be 16mm, 19mm, 25mm, and so on, and the maximum diameter is 52mm. The sausage filling machine is an important equipment for processing sausage products. The machine is easy to operate, safe, and reliable to use, and can fill large, medium, and small sausage products of various specifications.
5. Sausage knotting
The purpose of knotting the sausages is to separate the long sausage strips into small sausage sections which are convenient for further processing and packing. The sausage knotting machine can be different kinds with different yields. The two common-used types of sausage knotting machines are the manual type and the electric type. The knotting length of the sausages is adjustable, which can be decided based on customer needs. For this link, we can also match with a quick freezer machine for well keeping the sausages.
6. Sausage smoking
According to the special flavor of the sausages processing, we can provide the smoking oven for making smoked sausages. This sausage smoking oven can be steam heating or electric heating when working. This machine is equipped with a special smoke generator for processing the smoked sausages. When smoking the sausages, its inner temperature is about 40℃. Except for smoking, this smoking oven is multi-functional for cooking, drying, baking, and cleaning of the sausage and other meat products.
7. Sausage packing
The automatic packing machine can pack the final sausages into independent bags for easy transporting and good selling. This vacuum packing machine is suitable for good packing of the sausages and prolongs the sausages keeping time. Besides, the vacuum packing method can also preserve the original tastes of the sausages.
