Napier, MSCNewsWire, 13 April 2016 - Napier Engineering and Contracting has designed and fabricated what is believed to be the most comprehensive rendering process slicer around its standard Niven series meat processing range. The 1200 Niven series processor (pictured) is to be installed at a North Island freezing works.
Central to the system is the battery of Niven pull-and-slice rotary cutters. These can be seen in foreground in the smaller Niven range series processor which the new and larger system replaces. It features a foreign-body detection sub routine which eliminates any unwanted matter.
The central Niven series slicer product is the core of the system train which includes wash-screening and conveying.
The large scale Niven bulk processing system is custom-designed to process particles in order to preserve freshness and quality.
Napier Engineering and Contracting’s Ken Evans noted that the new processing train centred on his company’s Niven 1200 Series model underlined the continuing investment in New Zealand meat by-products processing.
“This investment demonstrates the continuing priority among meat processors to extract the maximum value from the nation’s on-farm investment.”
