Cantrells Modular Picker Improves
Picking Performance
All poultry processors know that certain areas of the bird are difficult
to remove feathers from during the picking process.
Cantrell has come up with the answer to this problem Cantrells
CMP-36 Modular Picker.

The CMP-36 Modular

Picker was designed
to enable the
removal of even the
most hard-to-get
feathers with ease.

Cantrells new Modular Picker was developed to access problem

picking areas. The CMP-36 Modular Picker was designed to enable
the removal of even the most hard-to-get feathers with ease. The
modular concept enables the user to focus on problem areas and
utilize each picker more efficiently.
The Cantrell Modular Picker cabinets are designed for easy
maintenance. Each can turn 180 degrees to a locked position for
finger replacement, and the overall design keeps temperatures low
inside the cabinet.
Another new feature that greatly enhances hygiene is that the picker
banks roll out for cleaning and roll back exactly to the previous
position. In addition, the encapsulated motors are mounted outside
the cabinet for easy access.

Switch Your Cone Lines Stainless Steel Chain to Intralox Mesh

Reduce maintenance costs and increase the life of your Cone Line by converting your stainless steel chain to Intralox
mesh 3000 MT with Cantrell mandrel blocks.
Cantrell manufactures its mandrel blocks from a high-density nylon for a long life. Blocks are available in multiple colors
for improved accountability on the line. The conversion reduces maintenance costs by increasing the life of your chain
and wear strip. Switching over will also reduce the amount of time required for sanitation.
In addition, you can replace your existing 4-inch cones with 4-inch cones with a 1.5-inch extension and dome bottom.
This provides 1.5 inches additional support along with a dome bottom for follow-through in the cut, which has shown
to improve yield by minimizing broken frames.
