Animal Gut Cleaning

The SSD range of high quality gut cleaning systems has been developed for the purpose of evacuating the manure and mucus content from the gut of the hog, sheep, or cattle.

The systems have no other purpose and no attempt should be made to process other products or materials. References to gut mean the small intestine of the animal, gut is also referred to as the casing and runner.

Rubber covered rollers of different hardness diameters and surface design are employed to extrude the manure and mucus content from the gut, the end product being an acceptably clean sausage casing.

Rollers sizes dictate the capacity of the machine and these are supplied in sizes of 400, 600, 800, 1000, 1200, &1500mm Rollers are shrouded with stainless steel guards which afford protection to the operator from accidental contact.

Each machine in a line formation progressively removes the unwanted gut content, each machine a little at a time. During operation the equipment requires a constant Hot Water supply for the stripper crusher machines; the finishing machine requires both hot and cold water.

Water is sprayed onto the rollers during the process to prevent the gut sticking to them. Recycling units (HWR) & (CWR) may be included to recover, recycle and return water to the cleaning machines. A secondary function of the water is that it is caught in the stainless steel holding tanks beneath the machines and is used to soak the casing between stages. The ‘soak’ assists putrefaction and thus the cleaning process.

The unwanted content of the gut, initially manure and later mucosa will discharge onto the intake tray at the front of each machine. Extruded manure falls to the receiving tray and should be piped to the drainage system. Mucosa, the lining of the gut will also be extruded in the same manner.

The sheep season in Norway is reasonably concentrated, where mostly everything comes to slaughter within 10 weeks, which has meant that the machine has previously been out of use approx. 40 weeks a year. The SSD machines, however, have proved to fit well also to the cleaning of hog casings, by only changing the settings, we can now use ...
