The Wienie-Pak casing has the tendency to shrink and tightly wrap the sausage after stuffing, creating a nicely shaped product with excellent shoulder formation and a well-defined shape. It is recommended for processing smaller-diameter skinless sausages including frankfurters, hot-dog sausages, beer sausages, mini salamis and other similar products. With Wienie-Pak, we seek to provide the most efficient cellulose casing on the market.
High Yields and a Good Appearance
The Wienie-Pak casing is supplied to meet various stuffing requirements. For the purposes of product identification and food safety, stripes can be applied to the casing. They're available for all current sizes, in a range of colors and numbers (between 1 and 6).
When properly selected for specific product, the casing will increase the stuffing efficiency and throughput. A well-designed thermal process will contribute to a best possible overall productivity. The cellulose casing is usually peeled off after smoking and cooking. However, for products sold with the casing on, Wienie-Pak can be one- or multicolor printed on one or both sides with customer's logos or as required to ensure a more appealing, attractive final product.
Our team works to ensure Wienie-Pak is tailored to optimize customer performance. Depending on peeling objectives, it can be supplied with two types of internal coatings: Smash and Rapid Peel. Smash is primarily used for applications with less strict peeling requirements or when the casing is not removed during production. Rapid Peel is available in a range of formulations and designed for high-speed, efficient in-house peeling applications.
Wienie-Pak can also be tailored to meet the demands of both large and small sausage manufacturers as well as for high-precision and high-speed production processes. It can be shirred with a maximum inner bore size to be used with larger-diameter stuffing tubes for increased stuffing efficiency. For high-speed and fully automatic stuffing, we offer closed-end casings with different types of end closures. For manual stuffing, open-end shirred casings are supplied. We have multiple Wienie-Pak structures to achieve a wide variety of customer application performance goals.
