Poultry Processing

Evisceration is the removal of intestines. A vacuum pump creates a more sanitary and efficient way to do this on the production line. This is a wet application and the use of a Liquid Ring Vacuum pump allows liquids and semi solids to pass through the pump should there be a system upset in the collection equipment without interrupting production.
