No-Water Conversion KitThe No-Water Conversion Kit for all Prime skinner models converts a traditional or low-water skinner to a No-Water model. The conversion uses an air knife instead of water for paddlewheel clearing, eliminating water use in the skinner entirely. This allows the machine to be used in countries that do not allow water in processing, typically Europe.

  • Air knife and compressor replace water spray
  • Filters ensure sanitary air supply conversion changes are in head unit and air plumbing
  • Conversion takes approximately 6-8 hours
Ease-of-Maintenance ConversionsSeveral conversion kits for CSK and TSK skinners are available. A conversion for the chain-drive door allows for easier access to internals. A new positive-stop kit prevents pinchblock overtightening. A new pinchblock rail catch prevents mishandling during maintenance.
  • Conversions require less than one hour each
  • Changes allow for easier, more efficient maintenance
  • Modifications combine to allow easier access, easier cleanup and easier sanitation
