Abstract

461,572. Plucking poultry. MELMORE, W. M., and MELMORE, A. L. Sept. 13, 1935, No. 25452. [Class 28 (ii)] A poultry-plucking machine comprises rotary discs 2, 2a, the discs 2 being fixed on the rotary shaft 3, during the plucking, whilst the inter. posed discs 2a rotate with the shaft and are, at the same time, rocked from side to side so that the peripheries of the fixed and rocking discs come together to grip feathers protruding through the plucking aperture of the casing 1. The discs 2 are spaced by and held between members 12 on which the discs 2<a> are loosely mounted, each disc 2<a> being acted upon by a push-rod 9, slidable in a member 15 rotating with the shaft 3, and having a head which contacts with a stationary cam surface 10 whereby the rods 9 are moved against the action of returning-springs 14. The discs 2a are provided with fulcrums in the form of protuberances 11, or balls set in the discs, which bear against the fixed discs 2 in such manner that the actions of the rods 9 bring the peripheries of the discs 2<a> against the discs 2 at the plucking opening. Springs 13 positioned between the discs, effect the return of the discs 2<a>. To facilitate cleaning of the discs 2, 2a, a threaded block 25 is unscrewed by a handle 26 until the pieces 12 are released from the clamping pressure, the rocking of the discs 2<a> then ceasing. Inward screwing of the block 25 compensates for wear on the push-rods. The upper edge of the plucking opening is provided with a blunt chisel-shaped member which causes the stub feathers to stick outwards when the bird is drawn across the opening. Several such plucking-heads may be arranged in one machine, the outlets of the casings 1 being connected to a suction fan which delivers the feathers to a T-piece, a featherreceiving bag being arranged to hang from one limb of the T-piece whilst an air-exhausting bag is suspended with its mouth downwards and secured to the aligned limb of the T-piece. The bags are held on the T-piece by coiled springs, and the suction pipe of the fan is fitted with an inwardly-opening spring-loaded safety valve.
