Used to close the animal pens in the slaughterhouse.
Structural columns that are bolted to the floor, spaced 2000 mm apart from each other.
Space between the fences to screw or bolt between the columns. Can be made of either metal sheets or bars. Made up of different units, allowing a unit to be easily replaced if necessary. The pens are very versatile, as spaces can be made larger or smaller by adding or removing different units.
The exact measurements and shape of the pen will depend on the type of animal being held.
For pigs, fences are made of metal sheets.
For sheep, metal sheets are used for smaller animals, while vertical bars are used for larger animals.
For calves, horizontal bars are used.
For fences used to create pens for several different animals (pigs, sheep and cows), vertical bars or metal sheets are used up to a certain height, then horizontal bars are used up to 1500 mm high.
The bars are made of galvanised steel or AISI-304 stainless steel.
Entry passage leading to the stunning area. Made of two 1000 mm high fences, which are parallel to each other, leaving space for the animals to pass through. Each fence has columns with plaques that can be screwed into the floor, with a sheet metal platform.
Located at the end of the restraining and stunning system (whether a restrainer or a restraining box is used).
This consists of a table with rollers and wings at the sides for the sheep carcass to fall on while it waits to be hung on the bleeding rail.
Made of stainless steel.
Machine designed to skin sheep easily, made up of:
A vertical rail with a cart that is powered by a hydraulic piston, 1350 mm long.
A fixed clip attached to the cart, which opens and closes automatically to grab and roll the animal skin.
Rotating hydraulic motor to turn the clip.
Powered by a hydraulic unit with a supporting frame, solenoid valves and connecting hoses between the hydraulic unit and the hydraulic pistons.
Electrical control panel.
Made of AISI-304 stainless steel.
The arm movements are adjustable, and the following can be modified:
To start with, the arm is on the upper part of the machine. The animal arrives with the skin slightly removed. The operator places the skin in the open clip. When the start button is pressed the clip closes, turns and moves down, rolling up the skin around the arm. When the arm reaches the bottom, the skin is completely removed and rolled around the arm. Next, the arm raises up and unrolls the skin until it reaches the upper position.
