Global food processing technology solutions provider, JBT will be showcasing the Schröder IMAX 400 SMARTline Injector at this year’s Gulfood Manufacturing. JBT acquired the German-based manufacturer in February this year to extend its inline portfolio of portioning, coating, cooking, searing, chilling and freezing technology.

A pioneer in curing technology for over 50 years, the Schröder injector is designed to deal with a wide variety of products, including red meat, poultry products and fish, and can be modified to inject special brine recipes or challenging ingredients.

“The Schröder SMARTline range of injectors can deal with even unconventional demands,” commented Michael Nöhring, JBT’s sales manager for the Schröder line.


“The injector accuracy and high yield is based on 50 years of experience in the curing industry, along with research we conducted with the University of Applied Sciences in Lemgo in Germany. It’s available with two manifold variants, a retraction block for bone-in products and an optional tenderising block. The injection rate can vary between 10% and 100%.”

All Schröder injectors have a standard deviation of up to 0.5 – 1.5 depending on the product. The touchscreen controller, which will be operational on the stand, can set pump performance, speed and type of injection (one or two-way injection) with the ability to store up to 25 recipes.


“The injector has been designed for flexible configuration to suit the process and production conditions,” says Michael.  “Many customers come to test their own recipes at our test facility in Werther in Germany, where they can trial the injector on various raw materials.”

The Schröder IMAX injectors can be integrated with JBT’s range of Frigoscandia GYRoCOMPACT® Spiral Chilling and Freezing Systems. JBT’s other brands include DSI® portioning systems, Stein® coating systems, Double D® cookers and searer/grill markers and Formcook® contact and convection ovens.

JBT will be exhibiting in Hall 4, Stand D4-44 at Gulfood Manufacturing 2018 at the Dubai World Trade Centre from November 6-8.
