Making sure poultry is correctly portioned and complies with weights and measures regulations is essential to ensure product integrity and to optimise profitability. The C35 dual-lane checkweigher, from Mettler-Toledo has been launched to support poultry producers.
The system can check two lines at once in real-time and it has a throughput of up to 600 packs per minute and a weighing range of between 3g and 10kg. This checkweigher also offers flexibility, said Mettler-Toledo, with around 250 options for performance optimisation and smooth product transport.
When used in conjunction with Mettler-Toledo’s ProdX data management software tool, the checkweighing data collected by the C35 can be used to accurately maintain production record keeping. This is crucial not only for quality control, but also for reducing audit burden.
The system is available as a standalone checkweigher or as a combination with a choice of x-ray, vision or metal detection technologies in compact, space-saving designs.
