Bovine Ingesta Contamination

Leaders in Ingesta Contamination Control Systems. Ingesta Contamination during protein processing is a common cause of wasted product. Adept have developed a range of Weasand Clips and Plugs for Cattle to help contain this. While there are other methods available the Adept Clip is proven to be the most reliable.

Oesaphagus Clipping



Early control of ingesta is critical and Adept’s weasand clips provide secure and reliable weasand sealing. Locating the weasand, separating it from the trachea with Adept’s purpose designed rodder (2), then applying the clip (1), hygienically stored and retrieved from the Adept clip dispenser (3), is recognised as best practice in modern animal processing.
