FEM has introduced a new option for Sirman Galileo meat slicers to the UK market.
The extra-heavy-duty, gravity-feed slicers are now available with a new Stonehenge Plus ceramic-teflon coating, which is said to makes the units more durable and easy to clean.
The aluminium-grey Stonehenge coating covers the cast aluminium alloy of the base, table, knifeguard rim, blade cover, carriage, end weight and sharpening house, allowing the slicer to glide through sticky products.
Designed to be resistant to acids and sanitising chemicals, the coating is claimed to be easy to keep clean, preventing flavour transfer.
The Galileo slicer features a rounded design with no sharp corners or visible screws.
The permanently-mounted blade guard is designed to increase safety, while the large distance between the blade and the machine body is said to aid cleaning.
A built-in sharpening tool, which is protected at the bottom, should ensure the 350mm blade cuts all slices crisply, cleanly and precisely. The thickness of the slices can be adjusted between 0 and 25mm.
The 380W, 0.52Hp motor is fan cooled and should not overheat.
The Galileo 350 with Stonehenge Plus coating measures 800mm (w) x 680mm (d) x 700mm (h) and is available through FEM distributors with a 1 year parts and labour warranty for £2,960 + VAT.
