• Improved meat quality
  • Animal friendly


As the only global supplier, Marel offers a complete range of electrical and CO2 stunning equipment for the animal-friendly stunning of pigs and sows for capacities from 40 to 1,400 pigs per hour.

The stunning system to be used depends on the capacity and the type of animal:

  • manual stunning system with a stun rod
  • a stunning cage equipped with a semi-automatic three-point stunning system
  • Midas electric stunning system with three electrodes and a supporting restrainer belt

Bleeding and blood collection

Bleeding of the pigs must be performed as quickly as possible after stunning.

  • Horizontal bleeding: The pig is transported along the pig-sticker in a lying position on a slatted table, which enables efficient sticking. This prevents damage to the hams and reduces bleedings.
  • Hanging bleeding whereby the animal can bleed freely.
  • In addition, Marel Red Meat Slaughtering can supply Anitec blood separation and processing systems for the further processing. This includes hollow knife blood collection systems and the corresponding identification and processing systems.
