Meyn presents 15,000bph poultry processing solution at VIV China
At VIV China, Meyn presented 15,000 bph poultry processing with seamlessly integrated cut up and deboning solutions, which lead to lower cost per bird and therefore increases profitability.
For Chinese poultry processors, the future looks bright because of consumption per capita of poultry meat have increased and secondly, it is likely that the import of poultry meat will decrease.
Another area of opportunity is the trend to replace the wet market of yellow birds and layers by modern processing plants. For these birds, where uniformity is usually less consistent, Meyn offers solutions that can handle the widest weight range in the industry and still meet the quality and yield requirements.
Although wages are consistently increasing, it is the availability of labour which is the biggest challenge for Chinese poultry processors.
In the last decade, Meyn has started to transform huge cut-up and deboning areas, where hundreds of people used to work, into fully automated departments.
Innovative solutions for live bird handling to chill at 15,000 bph
Meyn is very proud that this year alone, three new factories will be commissioned at 15,000 bph. To be able to run at 15,000 bph and still meet the optimal performance figures, it is necessary to several innovative processing steps. The new 240o evisceration solutions guarantee superior product and food safety.
Other Meyn product highlights in China are the new Meyn Grande drawer system, the Meyn Carousel rehanger M2.0 and the Meyn Line weigher M2.0.
Upgraded cut-up and deboning solutions with the highest yield
The Meyn Physic and Flex M3.0 cut-up lines are updated to seamlessly integrate with high-speed lines. The Physic line M3.0 offers maximum flexibility and can be configured to situation-specific requirements in terms of product type, quantity, quality and flexibility.
The new Meyn Rapid Plus breast deboner M4.1 has an upgraded capacity of 7,000 breasts caps / front halves per hour. At the same time, the footprint is significantly reduced by almost a fifth.
