Case study: sheep offal

Towards optimisation of maintenance and production processes

A sheep slaughterhouse has commissioned a set of conveyors designed with two positively driven conveyor belts that transfer sheep offal. The conveyor belts comprise synchronised compartments created by cleats to keep each set of organs separate. The operators can then keep weigh them individually and get a quality endorsement that the offal is fit for consumption.


The conveyors are equipped with the new S/Drive positive-drive monolithic conveyor belts, some with cleats, others smooth.


The factory has fitted all its conveyors with Mafdel belts, and this has reduced water and chemical consumption as well as labour and cleaning time. The time saving results in increased output.




The proposed solution enabled the client to achieve its objectives:

  1. -Save production time vs. maintenance time
  2.  To equip with hygienic belts
  3.  Savings in operating costs


Similar options are available for other types of meat processor where compartments can be created on the basic belt. This type of belt can be produced in any length or width required for full adaptation to the different products carried.
