Equipment : SK-5 Killer

The SIMMONS SK-5 is the most efficient automatic killer available. The SK-5 has a unique combination of rapidly revolving restraining rollers to convey to the birds' heads to the killer blade and the bicycle wheel. This helps prevent wings from being cut and to place the head in a correct position to cut the vessels on both sides of the neck (a full-ventral or "kosher" cut), resulting in a very rapid blood loss, usually in a range of 85 to 90 seconds.

The SIMMONS SK-5 is the most widely used killer for meeting HALAL slaughter requirements.

Hydraulic motors prevent electric motor use in wet and dusty environments of stun/kill rooms - less down time.

Operates consistently at all line speeds.

Large and small birds in the same flock accommodated.
