OVERHEAD CHAIN CONVEYOR components

Thanks to the use of 1” carrying chain in the conveyor, trolleys and shackles can be hung at different spacing (most frequently used spacing: 6” – 152 mm for chickens, 8” – 203 mm for turkeys). Depending on customer’s requirements and needs, we can produce shackles with different parameters, both from stainless, acid-resistant materials and food approved plastic.

Below – standard shackles, recommended by P.P.H.U. “Szlachet – Stal”

1) slaughtering shackle for chickens, made of stainless materials; for connecting shackles with trolleys use the slaughtering joint shown below.

2) rigid slaughtering shackle, with a flat bar; mounted directly to the trolley, without an additional joint; made of stainless, acid-resistant materials.

3) evisceration shackle, used in manual chicken evisceration lines, made of stainless, acid-resistant materials.

4)  evisceration shackle used in automatic chicken evisceration lines, made of stainless, acid-resistant materials.

5) evisceration joint, for connecting shackles with trolleys, made of stainless materials.

6) slaughtering joint, for connecting shackles with trolleys, made of stainless materials.

NOTICE! For turkey slaughtering plants, larger shackles must be used. Shackles are made to match the weight and size of processed birds, upon consultation with the customer.
