Drag Scalding for Pigs

Functionality of the Drag Scalding for Pigs

Mecanova’s MECPULL drag scalding allows it to be placed in any production line. It is recommended for production of between 120 and 300 pigs per hour, although it can be designed for higher production. The MECPULL requires a conveyor or wheel, which drags the pigs through the scalding, overcoming the strong difference in level between bleeding and scalding.

Heating is by steam throughout the entire machine. Temperature control is achieved by a pneumatic proportional steam modulation valve.

This scalding, since the pig is completely submerged, achieves the highest scalding quality. It is especially indicated for very demanding slaughterhouses.

This type of scalding is the one that requires the most space on the work line and the one that consumes the most water and energy.
