STUDIES AND RESEARCH ON THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF A MACHINE FOR TENDERIZE MEAT WITH THE PNEUMATIC ACTION AND AUTOMATION MODULES
The mechanical tenderization , during meat processing, can be the advantageous solution for rapid maturation of the product. This method represents the possibility to modulate the working process on optimal variants of applying the impact force, the pressing time and the relaxation time of the product.
In this paper there is presented an experimental model of machine of our own conception for the optimization of the tenderization process of the meat.
The paper, presents the adequate system of pneumatic action and the automation elements of the working parameters which were made as our own conception for construction of a machine for meat tenderization. Within the elaborated pneumatic scheme of driving there are identified the elements that can be electrically driven and the basis established scheme includes the programmable controller of the process.
