Greater Yield and Higher Price Point

Reduced Direct Labor Costs
Semi-automated process reduces handling and processing time with as little as 10 minutes needed for marination of some products.
Improved Product Quality and Consistency

Reduced Supply Cost
Vacuum tumbling eliminates the need for more marinade with a precise ratio of marinade to water. The marinade is fully absorbed by the product with no excess leftover.
Vacuum Tumblers are equipped with timers, and settings to control the speed and number of rotations.
