Filling & Portioning Depositors

February 27, 2014

NuTec C-Frame DepositorsNuTEC’s C-Frame Depositors have improved the way many processors deposit fillings for stuffed sandwiches, multiple layered products, stuffed seafood, appetizers and rolled or wrapped product. These Portioning Depositors provide excellent portion weight control and clean, accurate filling placement down the line. Approximately 45,000 deposits per hour are attainable on certain models.

The C-Frame design of NuTEC’s Portioning Depositors enables the equipment to fit right into existing production lines to deposit fillings for stuffed sandwiches, quesadillas, calzones, sandwich wraps, cordon bleu, burritos, egg rolls, hamburgers, meat pies, chicken kiev, and stuffed seafood shells.  NuTEC’s unique feed system uses a rotating spiral that gently moves the product to the rotary vane pump.  Bridging and overworking are eliminated because the product is neither rolled nor tumbled. This provides excellent particle definition and piece identity in finished products. Deposit sizes of up to 1.5-inches thick can be achieved. The 100% hydraulic system on these Depositors also minimizes maintenance, reduces downtime and lowers repair costs.
