CO2 Stunning System for pigs

The Frontmatec CO2 stunning system ensures safe stunning of groups of pigs with high animal welfare, high hygiene levels and safety for stunning operators.

Why the Frontmatec CO2 stunning system: 

  • Improved meat quality ensured by quick transfer of the animals into a controlled CO2 concentration
  • Reduction of stunning operators by use of group-wise stunning 
  • Wash-down cleaning system
  • Optimal machine durability and operation time through the latest technology, as it is equipped with a central lubricating system and gondolas moving in an optimum combination of accelerations, speeds and decelerations
  • Minimized maintenance and service through easy access to electrical and other vital parts

High animal welfare with CO2 stunning

The Frontmatec CO2 stunning system is equipped with a wash-down cleaning system. After work has been finished, the cleaning system automatically cleans the outside and partly the inside of the gondolas, considerably reducing the total time for cleaning. And as all internal machine surfaces are smooth, this also contributes to minimal cleaning time. Driving mechanisms and sensors are positioned outside the machine to minimize wear and tear and to keep service during breakdown at a minimum.

In comparison to a conventional manual runway operation, combining the Frontmatec CO2 stunning system with the automated runway system results in the following advantages:

  • Higher productivity and yield optimization

  • Improved meat quality due to improved animal welfare

  • Improved work environment with reduction of noise level in the runway area 

  • Reduction in operators driving pigs to the CO2 stunner 

  • Smooth handling and flow of pigs to the CO2 stunner
