The AIRMASTER® KKRI-DK ClimaStar climatic pre-maturing, drying and cold-smoking systems are designed for drying, cold smoking and ripening processes for raw sausages, especially for thin-caliber products. Other applications are air-drying and cold-smoking of special meat goods such as beef jerky, fish and vegetarian products. They are available for any desired number of chamber trolleys.
The control ranges for temperature and moisture are at +16°C and +28°C and 65% to 95% relative humidity. For product groups such as summer sausage and thin raw sausages, higher temperature ranges up to 45 °C can also be achieved.
The centralised air treatment device is at the heart of the AIRMASTER® maturing unit. The air returned from the processing room is conditioned, i.e. cooled, dehumidified, humidified of heated, depending on the requirement. Fresh air is fed from the outside, depending on the treatment process. Units from the REICH company are equipped with large-size air coolers for quick and efficient dehumidifying. Humidifying is only activated in extreme conditions. The treated air is fed into the processing room, i.e. to the products, through a central ventilator via the inlet channels. A changing flap system ensures that the airflow changes regularly from side to side in order to guarantee consistent conditions in the processing room.
AIRMASTER® maturing systems in double-channel design work with a combined vertical and horizontal air injection in one system and guarantee uniform ripening and drying even for thin-caliber products in a short time. Above all, the reversal of the drying direction in combination with high circulating and fresh air output lead to the precise manufacture of products with minimal standard deviations and a maximum yield in the entire treatment room. This eliminates the need to relocate and move the products.
The precision climate control allows extremely energy-saving operation. In contrast to most conventional air-conditioning systems which were characterized by ongoing counteractions of heating and cooling and humidifying and dehumidifying, the AIRMASTER® maturing units work with an MC climate control only when circulation of air is really required to transport heat, cold or moisture. This guarantees that the products are matured gently and with the maximum possible standstill and equalisation times. The circulation air speed, and with this the amount of circulated air, is determined by the water that is released from the goods. A frequency converter guarantees precise product-controlled removal of moisture; this prevents the formation of a dry edge on your valuable product.Climatic cold-smoking maturing units of the AIRMASTER® KKRI ClimaStar series are fitted with CIP cleaning, which works fully automatically if required.
All climatic maturing units are designed individually for your requirements and products. For this, the performance data and the unit geometry are calculated precisely.
