1. Stunning Equipment
- Electrical Water Bath Stunning: The poultry is immersed in a water bath through which an electric current passes, inducing instantaneous unconsciousness.
- Controlled Atmosphere Stunning (CAS): Birds are exposed to carefully controlled gas mixtures, causing unconsciousness without the need for physical restraint.
2. Killing Equipment
The killing process is essential to ensure humane slaughter. Common methods include:
- Mechanical Neck Cutting Machine: This machine quickly and accurately severs the carotid arteries and jugular veins to induce a rapid loss of blood, leading to unconsciousness and death.
- CO2 Stunning/Killing: Birds are exposed to a high concentration of carbon dioxide, inducing unconsciousness and ultimately leading to death
3. Scalding Equipment
Plucking machines help remove feathers efficiently, ensuring cleanliness and minimizing damage to the bird’s skin. Types of plucking equipment include:
- Rotary Drum Plucker: Birds are passed through a rotating drum with rubber fingers that remove feathers gently.
- Wet Plucking Machine: This equipment uses high-pressure water jets to strip off feathers.
5. Evisceration Equipment
Evisceration involves the removal of internal organs. Equipment used in this process includes:
- Evisceration Line: A series of machines such as vent cutters, neck cutters, and gutters automate the removal of organs.
- Automatic Gut Separation Systems: These machines separate the edible intestines from the inedible parts.
6. Chilling Equipment
Chilling equipment is crucial for maintaining the meat’s quality and safety by reducing bacterial growth. Types of chilling equipment include:
- Water Chillers: Carcasses are immersed in cold water to lower their temperature rapidly.
- Air Chillers: Cold air is circulated around the carcasses to chill them.
7. Cut-up and Deboning Equipment
This equipment is responsible for dividing the carcasses into various cuts and deboning the meat. Examples include:
- Cut-up Lines: Automated systems cut the carcasses into desired parts like breasts, wings, thighs, and drumsticks.
- Deboning Machines: These machines separate meat from bones with precision.
8. Inspection and Quality Control Equipment
Quality control is crucial to ensure safe and wholesome products. Equipment includes:
- X-ray Machines: These detect foreign objects like bone fragments in the meat.
- Metal Detectors: Used to identify metal contaminants in the final product.
