Tail feather plucker is designed for removing feathers from the coupr of goose carcasses.
The basic element of the picker is the frame, to which two rollers are mounted for plucking the feathers. Height adjustment is performed by means of a screw elevator mounted in the lower part of the picker. The picking process – removal of tail feathers – should take place after carcasses have been scalded. Additionally, the picker is equipped with the following:
– a separate transport mechanism (driven by the overhead slaughtering conveyor), designed for positioning the shackles with carcasses during tail feather removal,
-a compressed air supply system from a side-channel blower, with a blade nozzle, designed for supporting, with the force of air-stream, the introduction of tail feathers between the plucking rollers.
– High accuracy and efficiency in plucking thanks to the positioning system
– The height of the device is adjustable
