Marlen International, Inc. [“Marlen”], a global manufacturer of highly engineered food processing equipment and systems, and a member of the Duravant family of operating companies, will be exhibiting its newest Marlen, Afoheat, Carruthers and Unitherm food processing equipment innovations at this year’s International Production & Processing Expo at Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.
Marlen will be showcasing its latest Afoheat model – the Afosearer™ – which features innovative construction and sanitary elements. Food processors who are looking to add value through grilling, roasting, searing or bar marking meat and poultry can utilize Afoheat’s continuous thermal technologies to enhance the appearance, aroma or taste of their products.
Marlen is also excited to unveil their newest Carruthers dicer – a VFD version of the new DuraKut™ 6000 Series. With sanitation and ease-of-use in mind, the 12″ machine is equipped with VFD motors for two-dimensional cubing and strip cutting of fresh or cooked food products and features a novel approach to a parts and sanitation cart for easy assembly and disassembly. With continuous flow processing and high throughputs, this next generation dicer platform is controlled via Allen-Bradley’s newest MobileView™ HMI for the most user-friendly and intuitive interface.
Marlen’s newly acquired product family, Unitherm, will also be on display at IPPE and will feature live demonstrations on a spiral oven. Alongside the spiral oven will be a micro line for cooking and chilling, new modular mini spiral ovens, a patented vertical cruster, a continuous sous vide cooker and more.
Jan Erik Kuhlmann, senior vice president of global sales, stated, “From our virtual reality tour of a Marlen smokehouse to the latest in size reduction and grilling, cooking and chilling, Marlen looks forward to sharing our latest innovative food processing equipment with meat and poultry industry attendees at IPPE. We invite everyone to join us in booths B-4717 and B-6445 for a chance to get caught up on what’s new at Marlen.”
