Meyn is to launch the new Maestro Plus for fully automated in-line organ harvesting at high speeds at IPPE 2020.
Meyn said the new Maestro Plus eviscerator first transfers the viscera pack to an organ shackle, positioning it for veterinary inspection. The viscera pack then goes through the intestine and gall remover (IGR). Next, the liver harvester (LH) scrapes the liver from the gizzard to be cleaned in a drum washer and presented on a liver inspection belt. The remaining heart with lungs and gizzard is separated into two streams by the heart and gizzard separator (HGS); the first stream goes to the heart and lung separator and the second stream presents the gizzards for further processing, either manually or automatically.
The launch of Maestro Plus follows over two years of testing in Europe, China and the US.
The IPPE 2020 Show will be held on 28 to 30 January at the Georgia World Congress Center, in Atlanta, USA
