KPS Keel-Cleaning System


Prime Equipment Group’s Chicken Keel Cleaning System efficiently separates meat from cut chicken keels, producing a clean keel product that is ready for shipment or processing. Keels are pumped to a specially designed picker-scalder, where heated water and fingers separate the meat. Keels flow to processing, while the process water is screened to remove solids and re-circulated back to the picker-scalder for water and BTU savings.
