The Top Equipment H2H Euthanizer is a mobile device that kills individual poultry using an electric current. The animal is supported head down in a flexible cone. The head is held in place by two electrode plates positioned by a lever. An electrode is simultaneously placed on the cloaca. This is a manual action that can be performed quickly and without stress for the animal.

When the start button is pressed, a 220V/50Hz electric current passes through the body. With this effective‘head to heart’ method, the animal is rendered immediately unconscious by the administered electric current. This method leads irreversibly to death.

Conditions for euthanasia by electrical current are that the current administered must flow through both the brain and the heart. The current intensity must also be sufficient to make the method irreversible. The H2H Euthanizer meets all of these conditions. This allows poultry to be killed immediately in a controlled manner.
