ROSS TC820 & TC820-I TENDERIZER

Since 1968, Ross Tenderizers have enabled processors to produce and upgrade meat cuts with guaranteed tenderization. Stainless steel blades produce incisions in boneless meat products to sever sinew, connective tissue, and muscle fiber enabling rapid marinade absorption and reduced tumble times.

PROCESSOR BENEFITS

TC820/820I:

  • Aging time is reduced, decreasing purge.
  • Cooking time is reduced and moisture is retained to enhance flavor.
  • Consumer blind testing shows that blade tenderized meats are greatly preferred over a similar intact equivalent product.

TC820I:

  • Saves space in production floor as intervention application is done with the tenderizing guarding package

MODELS

  • TC820
  • TC820-I (Intervention)

KEY FEATURES

  • Boneless only tenderizing head: Using stainless steel blades, Ross’ unique “T” shape tenderizing pattern is imparted to the primal, guaranteeing your tenderness specification.
  • Bone-In Head: Force limiting head for bone in product and smaller primals.
  • Sanitary Liquid Recovery: Tenderizer conveyor bed is an integral tub, without seams or welds. Any liquid that drips through the conveyor is easily recovered through a common drain.
  • High Production Volume: At a conveyor belt width of 28″ (711 mm), large primals such as top butts, inside/bottom rounds, and chuck rolls can be placed three across averaging 10,000 lbs/hr (4,500 kg/hr) capacity.
  • Open Construction: Improves sanitation increasing food safety.
  • Adjustable Conveyor Advance: Conveyor advance can be manually adjusted varying number of blade incisions per square inch, enabling degree of tenderization to be “dialed-in”.
  • Variable Stroke Rate: Three position selector switch enables tenderizer output to pace cutting line.
  • Pass-Through Mode: Independent head and belt drives allow tenderizer to be used in “pass-through” mode.

PRODUCT APPLICATIONS

  • Beef
  • Poultry
  • Pork
  • Lamb
  • Seafood
