It sucks away viscera remnants and trims neck skin at the same time.
The FTIM RotoVac combines the functions of a Final Inspection Machine and a Neck Skin Trimmer. The integrated system has a smaller footprint and costs less than two separate machines. This 20-unit carousel sucks away any debris such as hearts, lungs or other viscera remnants remaining in the product after evisceration, without damaging the rib cage or the carcass itself. At the same time, it cuts neck skins (flaps) straight to a uniform length for optimum presentation.
How it works
Products enter the machine, which has 20 units. To avoid rib damage, product should be positioned precisely for entry of the machine’s units. A leg loop and shoulder lifter take care of this. Now the units can enter the carcass cavity correctly. Each unit has an infeed bracket and twin rotating, specially shaped suction nozzles. Once the unit is stationary at the bottom of the cavity, vacuum is applied. The twin nozzles rotate outwards from the breastbone towards the ribs on either side of the product to remove lungs and any loose debris.
