Cantrell, a poultry and food processing equipment, parts sales and service company, has developed the CBS-100 Whole Bird Splitter to reduce mis-splits and downgrade cuts. The Cantrell CBS-100 Whole Bird Splitter enables plants to split entire birds as they are introduced into the machine from the shackle, improving efficiency during processing.

The new splitter incorporates a strengthened tumbler and horn to reduce errors in the process. The rail mount design accommodates any positioning required by individual processors.

“Reducing mis-splits increases yield for the processor,” said Dane Woods, Cantrell’s General Manager Sales/Service/Engineering. “The design of the Whole Bird Splitter also makes it more durable, and there is less wear on the parts. The improved horn means less damage from the shackle and a longer life.”

Cantrell’s Whole Bird Splitter requires very little space for set-up and has minimal water and electrical requirements.

Cantrell leads the way in creating and supplying innovative solutions in the poultry industry to customers worldwide. With experienced and dedicated staff, the ultimate goal of Cantrell is to provide the best products, parts, and service available to poultry processors around the globe.
