Weighing and Grading Equipment

Once chilled, chicken are generally transferred on to a weighing, grading and distribution system. Birds can be hung manually on exit from a spin chiller or can be automatically transferred from an air chill conveyor. Birds are suspended by one leg from a plastic weighing shackle and are weighed on a special corner-wheel style weighstation. Depending upon the program entered into the control unit, birds are automatically unloaded by the selected release station. These systems are used to select birds for specific requirements depending upon required parameters. These computerised systems were originally developed in the early 80's by the company Chickway Systems Ltd. who no longer exist. PoultryProcessingEquipment.com's solutions are ideal for replacing the out-dated Chickway systems. Indeed, one of our directors was actually Sales and Marketing director for many years at Chickway Systems.
