Industrial Defeathering Machine
This industrial defeathering machine is indicated for the removal of feathers from poultry birds (broilers, old layers, cockerels, turkeys, etc.)
- It ensures a high possibility of efficiency and time-saving options, eventually bringing about quick processing of poultry birds for the farmer or processor.
- The mini-imported machine is of 3 to 5 birds capacity while the medium size typically takes more birds at go.
Industrial Defeathering Machine: Features
- This feather plucking machine is capable of plucking different number of birds depending on the model you are purchasing.
- The entire process of plucking takes about 5 minutes.
How a defeathering machine works
- A defeathering machine is designed as a cylindrical stainless steel jar mounted on a rectangular metal stand. The machine also has an electric motor. The inner surface of the machine has bullet-shaped rubber fittings which are sometimes called plucker fingers.
- When a slaughtered and scalded bird is dropped inside the de-feathering machine, the plucker fingers will get rid of the feathers as the electric motor rotates and the body of the bird rubs against the fingers.
- The removed feathers come out at an opening below the machine.
- Within 5 minutes max, the feather removal process should have been completed.
Directions for use
- Slaughter the bird and allow blood to drain properly.
- Dip the chicken in hot water to scald at 65 to 80 degrees. The temperature of the water is dependent on the toughness of the skin of the bird.
- Turn on the machine and drop the scalded birds in it.
- The best time to turn off the machine is between 10 to 20 seconds, although this depends on the type of poultry and its skin toughness.
- Always turn off the machine before attempting to grab the de-feathered chickens.
- Always clean and sanitize the machine upon every use, so as to prolong the life of the machine.
- The main power supply voltage should always be higher than the machine supply.
- For best results, the poultry birds should be completely dead, bled out, and scalded before putting them into the defeathering machine.
- If not properly bled, the poultry bird may bruise, damaging the skin.
- Don’t ever touch or operate the defeathering machine with wet hands.
- Make sure the equipment is kept far away from children.
