The Meyn Maestro eviscerator is, by far, the best sold and most applied eviscerator in the world. The Meyn Maestro eviscerator can handle the widest weight ranges within one flock and setting as well as over different flocks. With the Maestro, unrivalled evisceration performances can be obtained at the lowest possible downtime and running costs available.
The spring-loaded spoon mechanism assures a constant superior evisceration result without any damage to the liver. The back plate adjustment and long stroke result in an optimal performance and the ability to process a very wide weight range. At the outlet of the machine, the birds pass through a compact yet effective washing station in order to reduce the risk of faecal contamination. Furthermore, the Meyn Maestro can handle virtually all types of evisceration lines and shackles and can also successfully be incorporated into competitor lines.
Birds are led into the machine with their backs towards the centre of the machine and positioned in the lower part of the processing unit. The evisceration bracket is lowered into the bird to a point in the neck of the bird on breast side. The evisceration bracket is closed around the gullet, just above the crop. The evisceration bracket is lifted out of the bird, the gullet is pulled out of the neck and the whole viscera package is removed from the carcass. The carcass is released from the positioning unit and rinsed. The transfer unit takes over the viscera pack from the evisceration bracket and drops it in a pan of the pan conveyor. Carcass and viscera pack are presented to the veterinary inspector. The processing unit is cleaned using high pressure water jets.
The Meyn Maestro eviscerator was first introduced in 1992 and over the years it was improved on many details. The Maestro as it is today is widely accepted as the most successful evisceration system in the market. This strong market position is the result of a number of benefits.
