The Meyn crusher is developed to break large blocks into small pieces that will fit a vacuum or blow transport system. It will handle pieces up to five kg. Typical input products are whole chickens, such as DOA birds at point of hanging, factory rejects at post mortem inspection, chicken breast frames after the cone line or filleting machine, hocks and various chicken and turkey parts.
Objects are fed to the crusher in the in feed funnel. When the door closes, the drive of the crusher is activated. The object is caught by the rotating knives and broken into smaller pieces. The pieces drop down into the discharge funnel.
