Fomaco FGM48F DC M3 Injector

Man.year: 2008

Condition: Good, working

Machine can be used for injecting fish and chicken fillets.

Needles: 2 mm needles, 384 needles

Two needle bridges

Belt width: 420 mm

Filter PFS7/340R   

M3 needle bridge valves are activated individually, injecting only when the needles are in the product, reducing the quantity of return brine or marinade considerably. The high performance centrifugal pump gives a constant brine pressure, regardless of the number of needles in the product, ensuring uniform distribution of brine, regardless of product size. 

Spindle motors enable the M3 machines to adapt to all product heights (within reason) making the machines even more flexible to fit your current production needs. With this latest development it is even possible to define the movement range of the needle head from top to bottom, which means that the machine only injects between two predefined points. 

The rotary filter drum and 4 vertical filter screens remove larger particles from the return brine. The filter tank is designed with a sloping bottom to minimize the quantity of brine waste after production or when changing brine/marinade. Alternatively the rotary filter can be prepared for connection to glycol cooling - this ensures total control of the temperature during production. The filter can also be supplied with an agitator to maximize the effect of the cooling and/or to keep the brine in suspension. 

The self-cleaning protein filter FM 80 has a unique ability to remove all impurities contained in the brine. This will prevent the fine holes in the needles from being blocked - even after many hours of continuous production - which in turn ensures an even distribution of the brine and improved product quality. 

The sectionally-divided, pneumatic stripper feet following the contours of the product will also contribute to accurate injection as these will prevent the product from moving when the needles are retracted. This provides a uniform needle pattern, and prevents the product from being injected twice - or from not being injected at all. 

On M3 brine flow system needle heads and valves are designed to accurately match the liquid flow rate throughout the system, preventing brine residue from settling at the valve entrances etc. 

The machines are equipped with an automatic wash programme and items such as conveyor belt frame and needles can be removed without the use of tools. Further, all pipes are mounted with dairy fittings which can easily be dismantled for inspection purposes. 

M3 machines consist of thoroughly tested quality components designed to work in a highly demanding and aggressive production environment. Using a M3 injector will give you a sturdy, durable, high performance production machine which may be trusted, and will require a minimum amount of maintenance. 

If a change of needle pattern is required, this may be done quickly and easily without using any tools. M3 injector colour touch screen is mounted on a swing arm for easy operation from all angles. Training of operators is quick - typically completed within two or three hours - as the user interface may be set to several languages and has been logically and intuitively developed. Many routines are fully automatic, such as: • Automatic machine setting through up to 20 pre-programmed production profiles • Automatic lubrication (optional) • Automatic monitoring of brine temperature • Automatic control of minimum pump pressure • Automatic troubleshooting • Automatic cleaning program • Self-Cleaning FM 80 protein filter Further, our M3 injectors do not require much floor space, as they have a compact and robust design, with horizontal window closure and removable cabinet doors.
