|Reception of Raw Hides
Being the most important factor in the process, the hides coming from slaughter houses, go through quality control, cutting and classification.
This chemical/mechaninc process takes place in drums or pools. It takes the hair off, and opens the fibers to let it absorb the products to be used later on.
After coming out from the drums, the fleshing machine take away any flesh or fat that could still remain on the flesh side of the hides.
Is the main process, as it turns a perishable hide into a non-perishable and stable in time leather. The chrome absorbed by the fibers, makes it possible. The total time for this process is 24 Hs. divided in three stages **Liming, purga and pickling**
