Meyn introduces new vent cutter
The new Vent cutter 240 has been designed to operate at high speeds, up to 13,500 bph without sacrificing accuracy or adding yield loss.
Optimal positioning of the bird relative to the vent knife before and during drilling ensures the most optimal cut independent of the weight ranges that are processed.
The machine ensures consistently low contamination, using a patented, non-rotating bushing technique that protects the knife from cutting into the intestines during vent extraction. Precise and reliable cutting capacity is 8,000 to 13,500 bph on a 6" pitch. Poultry processors benefit from minimum yield loss or damage, with an exact drilling position and simple adjustment for varying bird weights and sizes. After each cycle, the drill unit is cleaned from the inside of the unit, ensuring a clean centring cone before each processing unit starts.
Maintenance has been made easier for customers due to the usage of quick release principles and interchangeable parts. Meyn offers an optimal vent knife programme for using different sizes of vent knifes depending on the weight range and bird type to be processed. A wide range weight can be processed within one machine setting.
