Tubular Track System

Functionality of the Tubular Track

The movement of carcasses in slaughterhouses can be done with tubular type tracks. This track is common in Central European countries, and is generally designed for the movement of pig carcasses.  At Mecanova we manufacture tubular track adapting to the needs of our clients. Apart from the conventional design, we go a step further and also manufacture the tubular track with Teflon.

Tubular Track with Teflon

It is a system with a polyethylene 1000 guide placed on the tube that facilitates the sliding of trolleys.  This type of tubular track with teflon is wider and does not require lubrication.

Manual 2D Switch

Pneumatic 2D Switch

Gravity OutPut Switch

Pneumatic retractable door passages

For this type of track, both for conventional and Teflon designs, Mecanova offers trolleys adapted to each type:

Tubular Trolley with Diabolo

This trolley circulates through a Ø50mm or Ø60mm tube with ease, since the diabolo is equipped with two bearings. The trolley is usually lubricated with food grease, since the friction of the steel can cause metal chips to fall onto the carcass. Thanks to this lubrication, this type of unforeseen event is avoided.

Meat Euro-Hook

To use the Euro-hook, a special tubular track with Teflon is required: with the polyethylene guide, the cart slides better. In addition, this type of guide equips cheaper trolleys or hooks.

This type of hook is indicated in large installations that require thousands of units, where the movements are all automated. In these cases the eurohook is the best option due to its low cost and minimal maintenance.
