CAS-3b - backpack model for large volume Uses

The CAS-3b comes belt and pouch, pressure regulator, coil hose with an attached hood and seal used for the controlled stunning and euthanasia process. A 5 pound aluminum CO² bottle sold separately.

CAS-3 - Transport Case

The CAS-3 transport case will further secure your CAS-3 hood, regulator, and smaller bottle* in an organized fashion while adding a layer of biosecurity.

*The 5 pound bottle does not fit in the CAS-3 Transport Case


Yes. Poultry can be euthanized calmly and without disturbance to other poultry inside of the house.

That depends on the person administering the CO² gas and the health condition of the bird at the time? Typically, it takes 1-2 minutes.

Yes. All components can be tightly secured for carry, allowing farm managers to perform their normal daily tasks.
This can vary and on average, about .08 per bird
For small operators, the 20 oz. cylinders can be refilled at local sporting goods stores that carry paintball supplies and equipment. For larger volume farms, most are in areas that have gas suppliers that are close by and they can deliver and make tank exchanges as needed.

On average, about 200. This will depend mainly on the skill level of the operator using the device and making sure all fittings are tight before starting out and learning not to use excessive CO².

One skilled operator, especially in smaller birds. Larger tom turkeys will require 2 operators.
18 lbs. when the 5 lb. cylinder is full.

Yes. For this to happen, farms must have a large supply of co2 on hand, for example, larger 50 lb.

Caution should be used not to overfill small tanks. If using a 20 oz. CO² cylinder, the total weight should be measured. (Example) An empty 20 oz. cylinder weighs 18.24 oz. When refilling, tanks should be placed on scales. Fill to add 20oz. of co2 for a total weight of 2.39 lbs. or 38.24 oz. total weight.

Yes. However, do not spray wash or dip pressure regulators and gauges. These must be wiped down with a sanitizing cloth. Products such as poultry house detergents, quaternary ammonia should be considered over the more corrosive products. Always follow appropriate safety guidelines and equipment when using these products.

No. Seal opening sizes will vary depending on the species and also the head and neck size. For example, with studies to determine the correct size, a 1 ¾” seal hole size worked best for a 10- 14 lb. hen turkey. Larger size holes will work, but will allow for excessive CO² loss and require more time to euthanize.

No. With the application of CO², oxygen should be removed from the hood to obtain maximum 75% CO² level in the hood chamber. This will require a slight gap between the seal opening and the neck of the bird to remove oxygen and keep CO² loss to a minimum.

Yes, but mainly when CO² is used in “Confined Spaces” such as vessels, storage bins, silos, pits, vaults

Certification is not necessary, however all operators should be trained on how to safely operate the CAS- 3 device.

No. Only in restricted areas as mentioned in OSHA 1910 146 (b) guidelines.

Devices may be placed inside vehicle cabs. CO² tanks cannot and must be placed securely in truck bed storage boxes only.
