Wrapper Handles Ovenable Film for ‘Roast-in-the-B


PFM’s Mistral flow-wrapper is now available in a new version to pack whole fresh chickens in ovenable film for improved hygiene.

Italian manufacturer PFM has announced a new version of its Mistral flow-wrapper, specially tailored to handle whole fresh chickens in ovenable film for “roast-in-the-bag” presentation, now beingadopted by major retailers.
Equipped with a special long-dwell D-cam sealing system, and capable of modified atmosphere packaging, the machine provides an hermetically sealed pack that eliminates any need for consumers to handle raw chicken.

This limits any potential spread of bacteria and provides additional ease and convenience while sealing in chicken juices and flavour.
The Mistral flow-wrapper is built in stainless steel to food industry standards and is designed on a balcony basis for ease of washdown. Feed belts, including the powered infeed to the sealing section, are removable for deep cleansing, off-machine.
In addition to standard flow-wrapping, the Mistral can be equipped to create gussets in the film for a neater appearance while the PFM Steelo four-side seal system can also be employed, giving lengthways ribbing for more distinctive branding.
