Spinal Cord Systems
Spinal cord removal systems are extremely important and under European law all Spinal Cord is classified as a Specified Risk Material (SRM), so is not allowed to enter the food chain. It must therefore be removed from the spinal cavity at the earliest opportunity.
Cutting Edge offer a variety of spinal cord removal systems;
- Bettcher 18AMX Trimvac – a pneumatic trimmer with special blade in combination with a vacuum removal unit
- CES versoVAC – an application specific vacuum system with specially designed nozzle assembly
The modular compatible component design means you only have to buy the elements you need. So we can supply a full system, a handpiece & control valve, a replacement vacuum pump or just a trimmer with vacuum nozzle to replace any part of your existing system
The nozzle and control valve design of both automated systems allows the removed spinal cord to suck directly into an enclosed collection vessel, ensuring no SRM falls on to the slaughterline floor.
