Hydraulic patty former reduces maintenance, downtime

The NuTEC 760 was designed to eliminate mechanical parts, thereby reducing downtime, minimizing maintenance and lowering repair costs. The 760 provides accurate weights, minimum leakage and rapid changeover while processing the toughest hard-to-form products.

The NuTEC 760 Rotary Vane Pump feed system gently portions up to 6000 pounds of product per hour with minimal product working. A rotating spiral carefully moves product toward the rotor. The Vane Pump feeds directly to the mold plate cavity without product backflow or bridging.

The 760 uses a variety of mold plate materials to run beef, pork, poultry, fish, veal, lamb or vegetables. Custom mold plates can be designed to your specifications. Drive speed is adjustable from 15 to 80 strokes/minute. The mold plates can be changed quickly and easily – in less than 5 minutes, according to the company.

USDA-, Agriculture Canada- and CE-approved, the NuTEC 760 can be sanitized in minutes. The 760 patty former is completely hose proof and constructed of rust-proof material. An intelligent design enables heavy parts on the machine to simply swing out of the way for speedy clean-up.
