Adept are the leaders in ingesta and faecal contamination control systems. Ingesta and faecal contamination during protein processing is a common cause of wasted product and can be a food safety risk. Adept has developed a range of weasand clips and anus plugs for both Sheep and Lamb to help prevent both forms of contamination. 

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.

The Adept clip is applied to the weasand (oesophagus) and pushed up to the base of the paunch using the Rodder tool. This process empties the weasand of any ingesta material and securely seals it in the paunch preventing any ingesta contamination occurring during processing.
