CMP manufactures a Body Chopper to facilitate the separation of meat in shellfish bodies such as lobster and crab. The unit features twelve stepped blades on a single shaft to gradually chop the product and expose the meat for separation. A water spray is employed to keep the blades clean. This unit can process approximately 1,000 pounds per hour of cooked crab bodies. The Body Chopper is typically part of our turn-key Salad Meat Line but can be used in any meat separation process to reduce the volume of waste.
