      How does a dehairing machine work?

      MCM’s dehairing equipment works with a combination of mechanical and water-based methods to efficiently remove hair. The process involves rotating the products while subjecting them to a stream of warm water. The mechanical action creates friction, which along with the water’s force, helps to remove the unwanted hair. 

      What chemicals are used in dehairing?

      These machines are designed to be used chemical free, however to facilitate the dehairing process, different chemicals such as lime, sodium sulphide, and enzymes can be used to help remove animal hair. These chemicals can reduce processing time and optimise the efficient removal of hair during the processing stages.

      Which animals are a dehairing machine suitable for?

      MCM’s general dehairing systems can be used for beef feet, beef heads, calf feet, calf heads, sheep feet, sheep heads, and piglets.
