Quality, appearance and marketablility of the end product are affected at every stage of the poultry processing line and this critically starts at the slaughtering department. The slaughtering department has to deliver a clean product ready for evisceration and further processing. The Meyn slaughtering equipment not only realises this clean, high quality product, but does so with an absolute minimum of energy and labour requirements.
The Meyn slaughtering equipment has been developed from intensive research and practical experience to provide optimum efficiency, durability, safety and economy. This means high quality construction from high quality materials and designs perfected and proven in real processing situations. Meyn's slaughtering equipment is easy to use and can be easily be adjusted during processing. The modular design of the equipment enables processing of a range of capacities from 500 up to 12,000 birds per hour.
