For a beef slaughtering operation to remain compliant with EU1099/2009 the processor should ensure that the stunning work station is optimised for the equipment in use and must have an alternative stunning device immediately available in case the first one fails. The Matabox from Termet meets these requirements and also provides a simple, safe way of transporting pistols to and from the stunning area. Designed to hold two Matador pistols, the Matabox ensures that they are stored and moved “broken” which completely eliminates the possibility of a misfire. It can be supplied with electronic counters for each station – this assists the slaughterman in rotating the pistols, which in turn provides a more consistent stun and reduces maintenance costs. The Matabox design also incorporates space to store two boxes of Matador cartridges. As well as helping to keep the workstation tidy by eliminating loose cartridges, having different grades of shot in front of the operator promotes selection of the correct cartridge for each animal. This will reduce maintenance costs compared with simply using the heaviest grain available for every shot. Cutting Edge can supply the Matabox as a standalone accessory for existing Matador users or as part a managed stunning program to meet your site specific requirements after consultation with one of our highly trained product specialists.
