With PLUS innovations for hung sausages in natural, collagen and peel-off casing

Handtmann PVLH 228 plus AHE 228-17

“plus” features for even more performance and quality
Natural casing pusher, minimum setup times, easy operation, state-of-the-art EtherCAT technology and many more “plus” innovations stand synonymous for even better performance and quality in sausage production.

High production output thanks to casing change times of under 2 seconds and simultaneous setup of linking line and hanging unit
The PVLH 228 plus linking and hanging line stands for high production output and reduced non-production times, especially with natural casings, as a casing pusher ensures reliable processing of artificial and collagen casing as well as natural casing. The linking unit with 2 linking nozzles reduces casing change times to less than 2 seconds and the simultaneous setup of linking line and hanging unit minimises setup times.

Gentle and fast linking thanks to parallel voider
Portioning and linking by means of voiding in a continuous filling process and in conjunction with highly-dynamic linking ensures portions accurate to the gram with precisely equal lengths. Handtmann parallel voiders ensure even more gentle and faster linking, especially of sensitive natural casing products.

Economical, ergonomic and reliable hanging
Simplified hook placement also cuts setup times. Excellent ergonomic working conditions thanks to the hanging unit’s individually adjustable height. Increased output thanks to more efficient smoke stick utilisation and reduction of give-away thanks to the integrated Handtmann smoke stick scales on the hanging unit.
