The CO2 Butina Backloader system is ideal for slaughterhouses who, irrespective of production capacity, want to implement the latest CO2-stunning technology for pigs whilst focusing on animal welfare and meat quality.

The standard design is stainless and galvanized. It is supplemented with solid and thoroughly tested standard components and technologies, which prevent pigs from becoming stressed.

The concept for this product is based on groups of pigs being driven forward to the stunning system in a mechanical driveway through one or several Push Hoist Gates (PHG). The pigs are divided into smaller groups and driven into the stunning boxes, which are lowered into a CO2 atmosphere by a paternoster or lift system. After stunning, the pigs are tipped out of the stunning boxes for shackling and sticking.


4-8 pigs per stunning box

125-900 pigs per hour
