These machines are intended to clear our faecal matter from beef, pig, sheep etc. intestines, and then to clean them.
This is done using lukewarm or cold water.
They also clear and clean pig bladders, gall bladders, caul and lungs. The weight loss varies between 30% (beef) to 75% depending on the product being processed.
A determined quantity of intestines is introduced into the machine, Various loading solutions can be proposed (manually, via stainless steel manifold, pneumatic gun, column elevator, conveyor, suction, etc.).
The entrails are driven by a rotating wheel then cut by a lateral blade fitted inside the bowl. Waste material is evacuated via a 114 mm dia. drain tube beneath the bowl.
For the cleaning of category 1 intestines (beef, veal, lambs with ileums), the machine must be fitted with a smooth blade and an automation cabinet with a program especially for category 1.
For emptying category 2 or 3 intestines (pigs, lambs without ileums, etc.), the machine is equipped with a serrated blade.
