Automatic Casing Line
Suitable for cleaning beef rounds (small intestines).
This machine is composed of tanks and various machines for separating and collecting rounds for each different phase of processing. The rounds move through the lines automatically. They pass through the first machine, which strips the manure and de-fats the rounds and then fall onto the next moving conveyor.
Here, the rounds are dragged through hot water and are conveyed into the second and/or third stripping and de-fatting machines. The mucosa is collected in troughs and directed to the side of the machine for easy disposal. After this process, the rounds are collected in a turning tank where the worker will manually invert the rounds inside out.
The operator then feeds the rounds into the last machine for the internal de-sliming phase.
