Dehairing Machine, Hercules

Minimizes contamination and bacterial growth

  • Capacities of up to 240 pigs per hour
  • Discontinuous system, using a compartment concept
  • Hair and nails are automatically removed


With the Hercules dehairing machine, the dehairing process takes place in two compartments. Four pigs are dehaired simultaneously during the dehairing cycle. The double direction of rotation guarantees a perfect dehairing result.

A continuous flow of water and a spiral conveyor ensure that hair and nails are automatically removed via a perforated collection channel, at the bottom of the machine.

The smooth stainless steel inside the machine and a continuous flow of water along the ceiling and sidewalls ensure minimal contamination, whilst at the same time also reduce bacterial growth to a minimum.
