Deformation characteristic research of albumen belkozin membrane
Plastification technology of protein belkozin film casing, before filling it with the sausage-meat, is presented. It was determined that after keeping a protein casing sam-ple in the saturated NaCl solution of 291-295 K tempera-ture for 60-120 s, the sample rupture load increased up to 2 times if compared to the samples kept for the same period in water. Samples resiliency in longitudinal and transversal membrane directions in the presence of cyclic loading have been established. Regularities of component deformation change the amount and the number of loading cycles as well as other characteristics necessary to develop tech-nologies, to automate the manufacturing and to choose the equipment optimum work parameters before filling the covering with sausage-meat are investigated.
