The different fibre structures within a muscle absorb the injected brine in different ways. Brine pockets and inhomogeneous brine distribution must be prevented for high quality requirements.The Schröder TMAX needle tenderizer penetrates the entire muscle. Its blade-like sharpened tips cut through the fibers of the muscle and shorten them in the process. Replacing the injected brine during the fiber process is then possible, the distribution is optimized and the muscle is also perfectly prepared for absorbing the protein during massaging. Depending on the product, the tenderizer can be equipped with single- or double-head and single- or double-blades.
