High performance Separators, Deboners & Grinders-Desinewers for the pork industry

Since the time of its incorporation in 1981, LIMA is a company which has specialized itself in the design, manufacturing and sales of meat-bone separators, deboners and grinders-desinewers for the poultry, pork, lamb, beef and fish industries. The company has a world presence with a network of more than 70 distributors on all continents.

Specifically, LIMA has made a name for itself in the poultry industry since its very beginning. Poultry processors from small to big-scaled deboning cut-up rooms are equipped with LIMA's separators, deboners or grinders-desinewers.

But do you Know what Lima has to Offer to Pork Processors ?

LIMA's range of LIMA DSP Deboners has been specifically developed for harder bones such as pork & lamb bones.

Many LIMA's customers in the Pork industry around the world are already taking advantage of the great benefits offered by the DSP technology, by separating meat from typical pork bones such as backbones, neckbones and ribs at LOW pressure.

The objective is clearly to recover the highest quality of meat in texture, as close as possible to ground / minced meat while still ensuring optimal yields and the lowest calcium content in the recovered meat as possible. Such high quality mechanically deboned meat is usually referred to on the market as 'structure' of '3 mm mechanically separated meat'.

LIMA offers a full range of LIMA DSP deboners from 300 to 5 000 kg/hr of input capacity.

The company has also made a strong reputation in the red meat industry (pork and beef) when it comes to maximizing profits out of boneless raw materials with its ranges of Grinders-Desinewers DD/DDS.

The purpose is to valorise good meat such as trimmings, deboned shank meat and aponeurosis into a high-quality coarse ground meat. This is achieved by separating remaining hard tissues such as sinews, tendons, gristles, cartilage, bone chips as well as foreigh plastic bodies at very high yield, from 80 % to 95 % while Collagen/Protein ratios remain under controlled values and the temperature hardly increases during the process. The recovered meat is NOT MSM (Mechanically Separated Meat) but actual ground and desinewed meat processed from bone-out meat.

Some Pork Grinding-Desinewing Applications:

Meat processors in the Beef industry will also benefit greatly from this range of LIMA Grinders-Desinewers DD/SS.

The company offers a full range Of LIMA Grinders-Desinewers DD/DDS for red meat from 100 to 12 000 kg/hr input capacity.

LIMA has also developed a specific range of pork skin-fat separators C.

The purpose is to mechanically separate the fat from the skin out of pork rinds. Such pork rinds may come as whole pieces without any pre-grinding or smaller cuts from ham, shoulder, belly and back, whether directly from the deboning room or from derinding machines.

A very nice ground fat at optimal yield is obtained as well as defatted skin with preserved integrity, with high technological characteristics through a very hygienic process.

LIMA offers a full range of LIMA Pork fat-skin separators from 750 to 12 000 kg/hr input capacity.

Today more than 95 % of LIMA machines are exported worldwide making LIMA technology a world leader in this field and illustrating the relevance of company's concept of quality in separation.
