Here are some basic engineering specifics of a professional exotic leather tannery:

1) Receiving Area – This are is where salt-cured skins are placed and stored. Ideally indoors, this area should have plenty of room and good organization is needed to count, inspect, measuring, and recording tag numbers for the skins. This area should have good ventilation and access for large equipment like forklifts for mass production of hides.

2) Inspecting Area – This area is dedicated to the inspection of salt-cured skins. Often salt-cured skins will produce a lot of salt that can contaminate a surface, you will want to keep this area separate from where skins are tanned and finished.
3) Hot Water Production – A hot water heating system with well engineering piping should be in place.
4) Beamhouse – This is the area where the fat is removed from the skins so they can be preserved. Solids may be produced and a filtration system will separate these solids from the rest before the water enters a Waste Treatment plant. This is critical for the tannery to work efficiently and clean.
5) Floor Drainage – There should be drains throughout the facility so that any liquids and spillage will flow directly into the filtration system. Floors should also be acid and alkali resistant
