North Star Solutions for the Meat and Poultry Industry
North Star ice equipment has been installed in meat and poultry plants, large and small, throughout the United States and in many other parts of the world.
In poultry processing plants, North Star flake ice is used to remove heat from poultry after slaughter and dressing, to maintain cool temperatures of cut parts through all stages of processing, for case icing of fresh product prior to shipping, and for top icing shipping containers in trucks and rail cars.
In meat processing, ice is used primarily during the production of various types of sausage, hot dogs and other processed meats. Ice is added during the mixing process to absorb the heat generated during blending, as well as to provide moisture, which adds to the quality of the product.
CONSIDERATIONS FOR MEAT & POULTRY PROCESSORS
In all meat and poultry applications, flake ice pprovides a significant advantage over other types of ice. The faster ice melts, the more quickly it transfers heat out of a perishable product. Thin, flat flake ice provides maximum cooling surface area and melts more quickly than other types of ice, so provides the fastest cooking. Flake ice is also the best choice as an ingredient in processed meats. It melts quickly and it does not clump like other types of ice, so it blends easily into mixtures and will not damage mixing equipment.
