In the evolving science and regulation surrounding the removal of the beef spinal cord, Bettcher Industries brings an innovative solution to this challenging and labor-intensive job.
The Whizard® TrimVac provides the quickest and cleanest method for removing beef spinal canal tissue. TrimVac marries patented Whizard® Trimmer technology with a powerful vacuum system to provide efficient removal of the spinal cord and sheath. Operators now have a fast and effective method to trim and vacuum away spinal canal tissue that reduces worker exposure and the potential for cross-contamination.
The TrimVac has quickly become the preferred method of spinal cord removal in European beef processing plants. In addition to its effective performance, TrimVac helps control labor costs associated with spinal canal cleaning, while making it easier for plants to meet customer and regulatory requirements.
The TrimVac is used to dislodge, cut and vacuum away the spinal cord and sheath. Pneumatically powered, the TrimVac uses a rotating blade to provide the cutting action, while a highly effective vacuum system removes the tissue. Material is conveyed so spinal cords do not come into contact with the carcass, workers or floor, so the work area has less opportunity for contamination and the process is simplified.
The innovative TrimVac has a number of blades designed to trim SRM (specified risk material) all the way down to the spinal ganglia. Show below are some of the blades that have been developed working with customers to solve real like meat processing problem.
