Unclean Line - Pork

The unclean line covers solutions and equipment from arrival of animals and humane stunning to shackling and conveying through the scalding and dehairing processes. It ends with gambrelling, grading and final finishing before entering the clean area of the meat plant. Building on a century of experience in the design and manufacturing of both unclean and clean lines, it comes as little surprise that the fastest lines in the world today come from Frontmatec.
