When it comes to the subject of turkey processing equipment, modules are a key component central to any poultry processing chain.
Turkey processing equipment refers to the machinery and tools used in the production of turkey products, such as turkey breast, ground turkey, and turkey bacon. The equipment used in turkey processing includes evisceration machines, deboning machines, brine injectors, and slicers, among others.
These machines are designed to efficiently and effectively process turkey meat, ensuring that it is safe for consumption and meets industry standards. In this article, we will discuss the different types of turkey processing equipment and their functions, as well as the importance of maintaining and cleaning these machines to ensure food safety.
At Wrightfield, we manufacture innovative modules the design of which facilitates easy cleaning and increases hygiene, while at the same time ensuring the safety of livestock. In this post, we take a closer look at this particular product.
Turkey Processing Equipment – Better By Design
At Wrightfield, we strongly believe that everything is better by design, this is particularly true with regards to our products. For this reason, we always welcome and encourage feedback from customers. It gives us a wealth of first-hand information and allows us to continually innovate, develop and ultimately enhance our products.
A great example of this process of continual development is our modules. As part of the inventive design of this particular piece of turkey processing equipment, we have eliminated all riveted joints.
Although widely used in the industry, riveted joints can create dirt traps, making modules difficult to clean, a factor that can potentially compromising hygiene. As such, our rivet-free modules are easy to clean and hygienic, offering benefits to both users and livestock. Furthermore, the simple but effective design can help to reduce repair costs by more than 50%.
Despite their innovative design, Wrightfield modules are dimensionally compatible with existing module systems. This is a very important factor that ensures there is no need for expensive equipment changeovers. The modules are available in galvanised steel as well as in stainless steel.
Equipment for live handling and processing of turkeys
Includes a range of machinery and tools used in the production of turkey products, beginning with the handling and care of live turkeys before processing.
- Live bird handling equipment: This includes equipment such as catching crates, transport crates and live bird carriers, used to move live birds from the farm to the processing plant.
- Stunning equipment: This equipment is used to stun the birds before processing, making them unconscious and unable to feel pain. Stunning equipment can include mechanical or electrical systems.
- Killing equipment: After stunning, birds are killed in a humane way, the equipment used for this process is called killing cones or knives.
- Evisceration equipment: This equipment is used to remove the internal organs of the bird, including the heart, lungs, and liver.
- Chilling equipment: After processing, the turkey is chilled to reduce its temperature and ensure food safety. This equipment includes refrigeration units and chill tanks.
- Poultry Pluckers: Poultry pluckers are used to remove the feathers from the turkey after it has been killed.
- Poultry Cut-up machines: These machines are used to cut the turkey into different parts such as breast, legs, thighs, and wings.
- Poultry Deboning machines: These machines are used to remove the bones from the turkey meat.
- Poultry Grinding machines: These machines are used to grind the turkey meat into ground turkey.
Further to modules, Wrightfield caters for all others areas of poultry processing, such as live handling and stunning. Additionally, we manufacture equipment for the seafood, ready meals, bakery and fruit & veg sectors.
Production of Turkey products
Turkey processing equipment plays a vital role in the production of turkey products, from handling and caring for live birds to processing and packaging the final product. The equipment used in turkey processing includes evisceration machines, deboning machines, brine injectors, and slicers, among others.
These machines are designed to efficiently and effectively process turkey meat, ensuring that it is safe for consumption and meets industry standards. The maintenance and cleaning of these machines is crucial to maintaining food safety and ensuring that the final product is of high quality.
The proper use and maintenance of turkey processing equipment is essential for the successful operation of any turkey processing facility. It is important for facility managers to stay informed about new developments and advancements in turkey processing equipment to ensure that their facility is operating at the highest level of efficiency and food safety.
