Figure: A shackle unloader.
The unloader is a mechanical, operatorless device, designed for unloading processed poultry carcasses or feet.
Design and operation:
The unloader is made of stainless, acid-resistant materials and food approved plastic. The unloader is mounted to a straight section of the overhead conveyor, where the processing cycle has finished and shackles must be emptied. Unloading can be performed at any section of the slaughtering process. The unloader is designed to work with rack shackles.
Unloading effectiveness: carcasses – 100% , feet – 95%.
Advantages of this solution include:
– operatorless work,
– very high durability and effectiveness,
– easy cleaning.
