Título Electrical stimulation of carcasses
Título original Stimulation électrique des carcasses [en francés]

Resumen In electrical carcas stimulation, an electrical current is used to produce muscular contractions and accelerate the biochemical conversion of muscle to meat ("tenderising") so that boning and refrigeration can be carried out more rapidly, whilst at the same time improving meat quality. The various electrical stimulation techniques are presented: the "high-voltage" technique in a booth or tunnel, and the "low-voltage" technique; and safety measures are given to deal with electrical hazards or with the violent movements of the carcass: installation of sensor mats, doors or electronic guards on "high-voltage" electrical stimulation booths; locating control panels at a distance from "low-voltage" electrical stimulation units. Appendices give diagrams showing the principle of electrical circuits for booths protected by sensor mats and doors or electronic guards. English translation may be obtained from the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety, 250 Main Street East, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, L8N 1H6.
