The Gizzard Harvester incorporates four different processes. It separates the gizzard from the intestines, separates the pre-stomach from the intestines, separates the pre-stomach from the gizzard, opens and cleans the gizzard and removes the yellow inside lining of the gizzard. Once the per-stomach is removed a circular knife cuts open the gizzard and subsequently the gizzard is cleaned by water sprayers. A gizzard spreading device prepares the gizzards for the final step. The last step is to remove the inedible inner skin, which is removed by peeler shafts which peel of the yellow skin of the gizzard. The clean, peeled gizzards are discharged from the gizzard harvester onto a gizzard inspection table, which will allow a single operator to check and – if needed – peel any gizzards which have not been processed correctly.
Main characteristics of the gizzard harvester
- revolutionary design: we removed all the fancy amateur chain-and-sprockets drive systems. It is a giblet harvester, not a bike!!!
- transport/pinch-off rolls to separate the gizzards from the intestines
- circular ‘DIAMOND’ gizzard opening blade, with extra long life
- each ‘line’ driven by an electric motor
- 1 ABI stainless steel motor, driving combined in-feed roller – pinch-off rolls, peeler-rolls
- 1 ABI stainless steel motor for the ‘Diamond’ gizzard opening Blade
- 1 ABI stainless steel motor to drive the gizzard tamper set-up for increased peeling result
- 1 ABI stainless steel motor to drive the gizzard transport chain.
- water spray pipe to clean the transport rolls and flush out the content of the gizzard
- offal discharge trough
- peelers to remove the yellow gizzard lining
- automatic auto-reverse mechanism which is activated when the machine is submitted to heavy resistance to motion; so jamming will be avoided and working with the machine is more safe
- safety switch for operators
