Unlocking the Power of Immersion Chilling Systems in Poultry Processing

June 26, 2024

When it comes to ensuring the highest quality and flavor in poultry products, the chilling process plays a crucial role. Among the various methods available, immersion chilling remains one of the oldest yet most effective techniques. This blog delves into the immersion chilling system, particularly focusing on the advantages of using screw chillers and spin chillers, with a spotlight on the Eruis Screw Pre-chilling Machine.

The Significance of Immersion Chilling

A Tried and True Method

Immersion chilling, an age-old method, involves submerging poultry in cold water to rapidly reduce its temperature. Despite its long history, it continues to be widely used due to its effectiveness and efficiency. This method ensures that the poultry remains tender, juicy, and safe for consumption.

Fast and Compact

One of the key benefits of immersion chilling is its speed. Unlike air chilling, which can take longer and requires more space, immersion chilling rapidly cools the poultry in a compact area. This method is particularly beneficial for processing plants with limited floor space.

Energy Efficiency and Durability

Immersion chillers are known for their energy efficiency. They use less power compared to other chilling methods, making them cost-effective. Additionally, these chillers are built to last, adhering to strict standards of quality, reliability, and durability. Meyn, a leader in poultry processing equipment, exemplifies these qualities, and Eruis's screw chillers are no exception.

The Eruis Screw Pre-chilling Machine: A Game Changer

Transforming Poultry Quality

The Eruis Screw Pre-chilling Machine is a marvel in poultry processing technology. This machine is designed to transform poultry, making it exceptionally tender and delicious. By using advanced pre-chilling technology, Eruis ensures that no compromise is made on taste or quality.

Speed and Efficiency

Speed is a critical factor in poultry processing. With the Eruis Screw Pre-chilling Machine, you can achieve unprecedented efficiency. It can cool chickens from 100°C to room temperature in just 10-15 minutes and further reduce the temperature below 10°C in a mere 25 minutes. This rapid cooling process is a quantum leap in production efficiency, enabling processing plants to meet high demand without compromising on quality.

Controlled Water Pick-up

Another notable feature of the Eruis Screw Pre-chilling Machine is its ability to increase product weight through controlled water pick-up. This feature not only enhances the quality of the poultry but also offers economic benefits. The process can result in a product weight increase of up to 12%, providing significant value to processing plants.

How Immersion Chilling Works

Soft and Hard Scalded Products

Immersion chilling is versatile and can be applied to both soft and hard scalded products. Soft scalding leaves the epidermis intact, while hard scalding removes it. Regardless of the scalding method used, immersion chilling effectively cools the poultry, ensuring it is safe for consumption and retains its quality.

The Role of Screws and Paddles

In an immersion chiller, screws or paddles are used to transport the birds through cold water. The screw chiller, in particular, moves the poultry in a counter flow, maximizing the temperature difference between the product and the chilling medium. This process ensures that the poultry is evenly and efficiently chilled.

Automatic Agitation Systems

To increase contact between the poultry and the cold water, Eruis screw chillers are equipped with automatic agitation systems. These systems ensure that the birds are constantly moving, allowing for uniform chilling and preventing any cold spots.

Family-Owned Poultry Farms

Family-owned poultry farms across the country have adopted the Eruis Screw Pre-chilling Machine with remarkable success. One such farm in the Midwest reported a significant improvement in the quality and taste of their poultry products. The machine's ability to quickly and efficiently chill the birds ensured that the farm could meet increasing customer demand without sacrificing quality.

Large-Scale Processing Plants

Large-scale processing plants have also benefited from the advanced features of the Eruis Screw Pre-chilling Machine. A plant in California integrated this machine into their processing line and saw a notable increase in productivity. The rapid cooling process allowed the plant to process more birds in less time, ultimately boosting their overall output.
