Synthetic multilayer heat-shrinking sausage casing Biolon Shape (SP) is produced from a composite of polyamides and high pressure polyethylene by means of co-extrusion with biaxial orientation .
Highly elastic Biolon Shape casing is designed for 10-30% overfilling and allows to manufacture products in metal moulds of different configuration , in the form of a globe, nut, as well as in forms in the combination with net or string tying.
Application: Cooked sausage, pork steak, liver sausage, paste and mock brawn, melted cheese and cultured milk products, frozen food, etc. which do not require smoking.
The possibility to manufacture products in metal moulds of different configuration, in the form of a globe, nut, bung, as well As in forms in the combination with net or string tying.
High mechanical strength;
Stable casing quality;
High heat-shrinking properties;
Ability for clipping by all types of equipment;
Prevention of products against oxidation,
Since the causing is a barrier for water vapor, carbonic acid, air and ultraviolet rays;
Increase of the shelf life up to 60 days for cocked sausage;
Lack of losses during thermal treatment and storage;
Good external appearance of the products during the entire shelf life (even and smooth linked sausage);
Preservation of sausage flavor and their protection against off-odors;
Good ability of the casing to come off the finished product;
The possibility to freeze the products
While preparing the casing (reel unwinding , cutting to sections) it is necessary to exclude friction of reel bottom on any surface.
Unwinding of the reel is to be made only in a vertical position when supported by a cardboard frame.
Casing in reels before stuffing should be cut on pieces and to be soaked in water with temperature 18-25°C for 30 minutes.
Internal layer of casing should be moistened by water.
To prevent causing shrinkage it is prohibited to soak casing in water with the temperature in excess of 25°С! Shirring casing is to be soaked in water at the temperature 18-25°С without net removal during 40-60 minutes, completely dipping it into water.
Unused soaked casing is to be drawn from water and left in a cool space away from heat and draught, for repeated use the casing is to be re-soaked.
Casing allows to perform overfilling equal to 10-30% of a nominal size.
During molding it is necessary to select the casing size and the quantity of feed sausage meat subject to sizes and configuration of mould to form a solid structure and to avoid hollows.
When using mould, the filling percentage and sausage meat dosage are to be selected in such a way that the length of linked sausage is to be sufficient for complete filling the die lengthwise and at the same time the linked sausage volume is to be equal to the mould volume or to be reduced by 5%.
Initial (forming of linked sausage prior to press molding ) overfilling is 5-7%, maximum end (during the press molding) expansion in places of the maximum die perimeter is up to 30-40% of the nominal diameter;
It is strictly forbidden to puncture casing. Thermal treatment may be conducted in all types of thermal chambers. Sausage cooking is to be performed stepwise:
1 Stage – at the temperature of 50-55°С up to the temperature of 30-35°С in the center of linked sausage;
2 Stage - at the temperature of 65-70°С up to the temperature of 55°С in the center of linked sausage;
3 Stage - at the temperature of 78-85°С up to the temperature of 72°С in the center of linked sausage; On thermal treatment completing it is necessary to perform cooling (atomizer water spraying) of products up to 20-25°С in the center of linked sausage! to +6°С.
Casing is to be stored indoor in the Manufacturer's packing in the closed clean dry storage rooms free of foreign odors, protected against daylight, at the distance of at least 1 meter of heating elements at the temperature not exceeding 25С and relative humidity not exceeding 75 %;
It is strictly forbidden to throw boxes with casing or subject them to shock;
Casing stored at the temperature below 0°С, prior to use is to be kept in the ambient temperature for at least 24 hours prior to opening the packing.
Guaranteed storage life of the casing is 1 year from the date of manufacturing, provided the original packing integrity.
