Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR PROCESSING ARTICLES
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCEDE POUR LE TRAITEMENT D'ARTICLES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Apparatus is provided for processing articles (25) moving in succession along a path, the apparatus comprising conveyor means (23) arranged to convey the succession of articles along the path, means (27) to split the succession of articles into at least two streams and means (28) to weigh each article while the articles are split into the two streams. The invention includes a corresponding method. Splitting the articles into two or more streams not only allows more time for weighing each article, even when the articles are moving at relatively high speed, but it also minimises the risk that one poultry carcass will interfere with an adjacent one.
(FR)Un appareil est prévu pour traiter des articles (25) se déplaçant de manière successive le long d'un circuit. L'appareil comprend un dispositif d'acheminement (23) configuré pour transporter la succession d'articles le long du circuit, un dispositif (27) qui sépare la succession d'articles en au moins deux chemins et un dispositif (28) qui permet de peser chaque article lorsque les articles sont répartis en deux chemins. Cette invention concerne également un procédé associé. La répartition des articles en au moins deux chemins permet non seulement de disposer de plus de temps pour peser chaque article, même lorsque ces derniers se déplacent à une vitesse relativement élevée, mais également de réduire au maximum le risque qu'une carcasse de volaille ne vienne gêner une carcasse adjacente.
