CONVERSING SKIN

SLAUGHTER HOUSES

 

 

 

 

Skin hoist

Used to lilt up the hooks and skin from the floor.

  • Closed 1 ¼" chain circuit.
  • UPN-60 profile guides.
  • Double rail.
  • Pushers for the double rail, with 4 nylon wheels.
  • Powered by a 1.1 KW gear motor.
  • Electrical control panel.
  • Buttons to control the different mechanisms, with stop and start switches. Made of galvanised steel.

Weighing chain and skin classification

System to weigh skins, classify them according to their weight and. depending on the weight, place them on the corresponding rail (the number of rails will vary according to the facility),

  • Closed 200 mm hinge chain circuit.
  • Square tube open rails 65x65x4 mm.
  • Double rail.
  • 1 sprocket motor powered by a 1.5 KW gear motor.
  • Electrical control panel.
  • Buttons to control the different mechanisms, with stop and start switches and an emergency stop button.

- Pneumatic inserter at the beginning to automatically enter the hooks one by one onto the lowering machine.

  • 150 kilo weighing area to weigh the skins.
  • It has a number of different exit points which vary depending on the facility, in order to classify the skins by weight.
  • With stopper pins at the exit routes, powered by pneumatic pistons.
  • At the end of each exit route there are limit switches to detect when the skm has joined the corresponding path.
  • Touch screen on the control panel.
  • It is possible to vary the range of classification weights for the different skins.

Made of galvanised steel.

Production: 450 skins/hour.

The process is completely automatic.

The hooks go in the chain one by one via the pneumatic inserter.
When the skins go on the scale, the chain stops to measure the weight.
Depending on the weight of each skin, the different exit routes will open to allow the hook to go down the route that matches the skin's classification. The details of the classification route/weight should be entered previously in the machine:

  • Total number of skins in each category.
  • Total weight of skins in each category.
  • Average weight of skins in each category.
  • Weight of each skin.
  • Total weight for all the categories.
  • It is possible to manually enter the supplier before weighing the skins, to obtain all the details for that supplier.

The machine can connect to a computer in your office to list all the information at the end of the day, or it can be connected to a printer in the weighing area to print out the data in situ.

 

 

 

 

Aerial rail for skin

In order to store the skins in the skin room, an aerial rail with hanging hooks is used.

Made up ot:

  • Columns to support the structure, made of galvanised steel tubes, with plates that can be bolted to the floor.
  • Rail supporting structure, built with IPN rails, finger clamps, attachment plates and screws to attach all the elements together, avoiding the need for welding, which can ultimately cause problems with rust. Made of galvanised steel.
  • Running rail consisting of two U-shaped 50x29 mm rails, which are made of AGST5 aluminum alloy, with a rolling side, a guiding surface for the carts and T-slot to allow the support brackets to be attached with bolts without welding or drilling.
  • Rail support brackets made of L-2640 aluminum to keep the rails parallel. The rails are spaced 18 mm apart to suspend the rail from the secondary structure using flanges and screws.
  • 90° curves and angles with the same characteristics as the running rail,
  • Finger clamps.
  • Stainless steel screws between the rail and the support brackets, and also between the support brackets and the secondary structure.

 

 

 

 

 Skin unhooking device

This machine automatically unhooks skin from the aerial hooks, allowing the hook to continue along the rail and the skin to be collected in a container or pallet on the floor.

CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Closed 1 ¼" chain circuit.
  • UPN-60 profile guides.
  • Double rail.
  • Pushers for the double rail, with 4 nylon wheels.
  • Powered by a 1.1 KW gear motor.
  • Electrical control panel.
  • Buttons to control the different mechanisms, with stop and start switches.
  • Pneumatic inserter at the beginning to automatically enter the hooks one by one onto the lowering machine.

Made of galvanised steel.

Production: 700 skins/hour.

 

 

 

 

This machine is used to lower empty hooks that come from the automatic unhooking machine, as they pass along the aerial rail towards the hook container. 

CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Closed chain circuit Ø 10 mm.
  • Polyethylene rails.
  • Double rail.
  • Reinforced rubber pushers.
  • Powered by a 0.37 KW gear motor.
  • Electrical control panel, with stop and start buttons.

Made of stainless steel.

 

 

 

  

Skin hooks collecting

Used to store empty hooks from the automatic unhooking machine. These rails are tilted slightly towards the hoist, where the skins are loaded.
With this option the rail circuit is closed, which means the hooks never leave the circuit and they are not lost or damaged. 

Made up of:

  • Columns to support the structure, made of galvanised steel tubes, with plates that can be bolted to the floor.
  • Rail supporting structure, built with IPN rails, finger clamps, attachment plates and screws to attach all the elements together, avoiding the need for welding, which can ultimately cause problems with rust. Made of back steel with a hot-dip galvanised finish.
  • Running rail consisting of two U-shaped 50x29 mm rails, which are made of AGST5 aluminium alloy, with a rolling side, a guiding surface for the carts and T-slot to allow the support brackets to be attached with bolts without welding or drilling,
  • Rail support brackets made of L-2640 aluminium to keep the rails parallel. The rails are spaced 18 mm apart to suspend the rail from the secondary structure using flanges and screws.
  • 90° curves and angles with the same characteristics as the running rail,
  • Finger clamps.
  • Stainless steel screws between the rail and the support brackets, and also between the support brackets and the secondary structure.

 

  

 

 

Skin hooks

Used to hang skins and move them along the aerial rail.

CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Aluminum body.
  • 2 plastic wheels (POM), with ball bearings inside, joined together by a shaft, so that it can slide along the double rail.
  • Two side rollers made of plastic (POM), to allow the hooks to slide along the rail.
  • Lower fork made of stainless steel to hold the hook in place.
  • Special hook to hang the skin from, made of stainless steel.

This machine can be used to automatically salt skin.

Made up of:

  • Support structure.
  • Chassis with 4 wheels to move the structure.
  • A hopper fixed to the chassis, supported with buffers.
  • Ejector placed underneath the conical part of the hopper, with an adjustable lid for the sail to come out of.
  • Two vibrators to shake the salt, each one powered by 0.24 KW.
  • The hopper is moved using a 1.1 KW gear motor.
  • The salt is released using a 0.37 KW gear motor.
  • Control panel with stop and start switches.

Options:

  • Switch to control one or two of the vibrators depending on whether the salt is stuck together in the hopper.
  • Program to add up the skins that are being salted, with a digital screen to see the numbers.
  • Limit switches to detect whether or not the hopper has finished, to make it stop.

Structure made of hot-dip galvanised steel. The rest is made of AISI-304 stainless steel, while the hopper is made of AISI- 316 stainless steel. 
The hopper is controlled manually, using a button. Once it is activated, it moves to the edge. At the same time the ejector also starts, allowing a stream of salt to fall onto the skin placed underneath.
