One of the meat mincing problems is the rise of meat temperature during mincing process (energy conversion), for that meat should be cooled before mincing as to stay cold after mincing. In some international regulations, time between taking meat from refrigerator (for mincing) and returning the meat to refrigerator (or freezer) should not exceed one hour with 7 ˚C maximum meat temperature during this period. Sometimes it is difficult to control this process in addition to another problem which is residual meat inside the mincer, where its temperature is increased because of mincing process in addition of keeping it without cooling until the next mincing process, this will increase the rate bacterial growth. If residual meat is mixed with new meat which the product will not be safe to eat and would consequently cause food poisoning. Accordingly meat mincer should be properly cleaned after each mincing process. These problems can be solved by using a refrigerated meat mincer Fig.18.104.22.168, which includes a refrigeration cycle to cool the meat during mincing process.
