Abstract

Within meat processing technology the tenderization operation is important in the rapid maturation technique. Among tenderization methods, the least studied, yet with full ecological, biological and economical advantages is the mechanical tenderization. In this paper is presented an experimental model of machine of our own conception for the optimization of the tenderization process of the meat used for preparing traditionally products. Beside this the present paper presents the adequate system of pneumatic action and the automation elements of the working parameters which were made as our own conception for construction a machine for meat tenderization. Within the elaborated pneumatic scheme of driving there are identified the elements that can be electrically driven and the basis established scheme includes the programmable controller of the process. This allows the presenting of the organization schemes for every phase within the working process of machine and, finally, the cyclic scheme of function in order to establish the specific solutions for different meat types.
