Pig scalding by pushing, discover how it helps your facility

Pig scalding is an essential step in the pork production process in a slaughterhouse.

It is a method of preparing pig skin for further processing, such as hair removal and depilation. Pig scalding is done after the pig has been slaughtered, and is an important part of the process of converting pork into meat products.

There are several methods of scalding pigs, but the most common method involves immersing the pig’s carcass in a tank of hot water. The temperature and duration of the blanching process will depend on a variety of factors, including the size, age, and skin type of the pig.

What is the purpose of the Pig Scalding by Pushing?

The purpose of pig scalding by pushing is to soften the pig’s skin and make hair removal easier. When pigskin is immersed in hot water, the heat causes the keratin in the hair and skin to denature or break down. This facilitates hair removal using the dehairing and later by dry whipping machine and cleansing whipping machine.

Blanching is normally carried out by trained workers using our specialized equipment in the most efficient way. The pig carcass is dumped into the tank via a platform and moves through the scalding tank, where it is immersed in hot water for a specified period of time pushed by the combs of the machine. Once the pig scalding process is complete, the pig is transferred to the deharing machine to remove the remains of hair to later move on to the cleaning and sanitizing areas (whipping machine).

Pig scalding by pushing is an important step in the meat production process, as it helps to prepare the pig’s skin for further processing in a more efficient and faster way. By scalding the skin of the pig, slaughterhouses can profitably produce high-quality meat products.
