|How long does it take to produce mucus?||In the Mucus pro apparatus, mucus secretion is carried out mechanically: Ozone and microvibrations act on mollusks.
In “Cruelty free” secretion modes, the secretion time is 1.5 hours.
In the “Industrial” secretion modes, the secretion time is 4 – 6 hours
|How many snails can the device hold?||The Mucus pro 2.40 can simultaneously load 40-50 kg of Helix aspersa Maxima or 60-70 kg of Helix aspersa Muller.
Other types of snail: smaller or larger depending on the size of the molluscs.
|Does the snail survive after the secretion process?||In the “Cruelty free” secretion mode, 99% of the molluscs remain alive and after 4-5 months, if they are grazed on the pasture, they can again produce mucus.
This mode of secretion is less cost-effective: a smaller amount of mucus is secreted – 4-5% of the weight of the mollusks and additional costs appear for washing, rehabilitation of the snail and placement in the pasture.
Secretion mode “Cruelty-free” is used at the request of the customer, when the customer of the finished product must indicate on the packaging of the product, which uses snail mucus, so that the animals do not suffer.
In the “Industrial” secretion mode – 95% of mollusks die, they are usually used in further processing for meat and shells.
In the “industrial” mode, the maximum amount of mucus is released: 15-22%.
This is the most cost effective production mode.
|Do I need to buy Ozone and other reagents?||No. Mucus pro devices are equipped with an Ozone generator – the device itself produces Ozone from the air.
Mucus pro devices do not use water, acids or other reagents for mucus secretion.
Of the operating costs – only electricity (up to 0.8 kW / 1 h).
|Why is snail mucus filtration and lyophilization necessary?||The device Mucus pro produces ready-made, clean, raw snail mucus, without additives.
Microfiltration (0.2 µm) is usually required at the request of the purchaser to reduce bacterial load. Microfiltered mucus is considered “conditionally sterile”.
But you should know that any filtration also reduces the amount of nutrients in the product.
Lyophilization (freeze drying) of snail mucus is necessary to obtain a dry powder.
Moreover, for the freeze drying of snail mucus, preliminary filtration is not required.
|Are there any special requirements for where the equipment should be placed?||Yes, there are several of them: the room must have ventilation, since Ozone is used, water is used to flush equipment after the technological process, preferably with a drain of water in the floor, the power supply to the equipment must be grounded.
The storage of the equipment must be carried out in a dry room.
In general, you should be comfortable so that there are walkways and it is convenient to work with the equipment.
|Hardware warranty.||Mucus pro equipment has a 2-year warranty.
There is post-warranty service, the manufacturer will replace any unit and mechanism if necessary.
|Comparison of equipment with competitors in the market – what are the advantages?||Equipment for the secretion of snail mucus Mucus pro – produces pure shellfish mucus, without the use of water, acids and reagents.
Operating costs are electricity only.
Thanks to the “MUCUS PROfessional” secretion technology, “Mucus pro” snail mucus has an increased content of mucopolysaccharides and, as a result, the highest number of Allantoin and Glycolic acid, as well as the highest PH level.
Mucus pro is committed to reducing the cost of producing snail mucus in the world. Equipment for the secretion of snail mucus Mucus pro is the cheapest in the world, and the production cost is the lowest!
In addition, there is equipment leasing and snail mucus outsourcing.
|Where can you get snail mucus analysis done?||The most important indicators in snail mucus: Allantoin and Glycolic acid, these tests can be done in any laboratory where there is Research Method: HPLC (High Performance Liquid Chromatography).
The indicators are also important: Protein and acidity (Ph), snail mucus should not be acidic.
Bacteriological indicators: snail mucus of the Mucus pro class is subject to low-temperature sterilization, therefore bacteriology is absent or does not exceed the norm.
If you are our client, please contact us and we will help you to make an analysis of snail mucus.
|Personnel – how many people are required to operate the equipment?||One worker is enough to operate one or two Mucus pro devices.|
|What is the selling price of the finished product?||Cost in the company Mucus pro, liquid filtered snail mucus Helix aspersa – 45€-58€ /per 1 liter;
dry lyophilized snail mucus Helix aspersa – 5€ – 15€ / per 1 gram.
See the price list of the company:https://mucus.pro/pdf/
Do not confuse pure lyophilized snail mucus powder with cheap “snail mucus” powder diluted with maltodextrin, it is usually white and of poor quality.
|What is the shelf life of the finished product?||Shelf life of liquid snail mucus at a temperature:
+ 2C– + 6C: 3 months
-20C – -30C: 24 months.
Dry lyophilized snail mucus powder is stored at temperature: + 2C – + 20C: 120 months.

|Where is snail mucus used?
Does Mucus pro buy snail mucus?
|Snail mucus is used in cosmetology, medicine and food industry (as biologically active additives).
The global market for snail mucus and peptide cosmetic products alone was US $ 3.7 billion in 2019 and is valued at US $ 12.0 billion by 2029 with an expected CAGR of 12.7%.
Mucus pro does not buy snail slime and other finished products, because it produces it itself.
However, sometimes our company places orders for the production of snail slime for a specific country with its franchisees.
|What is “Snail slime outsourcing”?||Outsourcing is when you outsource a part of a workflow to another contractor.
If you are a small farmer and you do not yet have equipment for secreting snail mucus, but you want to get a finished product – liquid or dry snail mucus, contact Mucus pro.
Mucus pro equipment operates in 40 countries of the world and is constantly developing an outsourcing network.
Our franchisees will make snail slime for you using Mucus pro equipment from your snail.
You only need to deliver your snail and after a while pick up the finished product – snail mucus.
|What is “Mucus pro Franchise”?||The Mucus pro franchise was created for the owners of a set of equipment for the secretion and processing of snail mucus.
With Mucus pro advertising and technical support, you will be able to provide snail slime production service to other customers in your country from customer’s snail (snail slime outsourcing).
With the Mucus pro Franchise, you will recoup your equipment even faster and get additional profit.
|What is “Mucus pro leasing”?||Leasing of equipment from Mucus pro, Mucus Filter, Bulova is available when purchasing equipment on lease for more than €10,000.
The equipment immediately becomes the property of the buyer (leasing recipient).
50% of the cost of the equipment can be paid in installments up to 24 months.
The cost of equipment will increase by 20%, it will include: insurance, rental costs and delivery at your discretion.
Leasing payments will be made not to the seller, but to the leasing company “Mucus pro finance”.
To make a decision on the transfer of equipment to lease, you must provide several documents on the financial and credit status of your company (the recipient leasing).
|Can I visit your factory?||
For buyers of complete sets of equipment, we conduct excursions to the workshop for the production and processing of snail mucus.
It is very interesting and informative. We have a full cycle of growing snails, processing snails and obtaining snail mucus: in liquid form and in dry powders.
Here you will see all types of equipment (Mucus pro, Mucus filter, Bulova) in operation.
We are open to communication! Once a year, we hold an open house at the snail slime factory.
At the plant for the production of equipment, you can see the stages of production of all equipment except for Mucus pro (this part of the production is classified).
We will also be happy to welcome you at the head office of the company or in the export office.
|Snail slime production cost and profitability.||Mucus pro declares the lowest production cost of snail mucus production.
For example: to get 1 liter of snail mucus, you need only =5 kg of snail (Helix aspersa),
for 1 gram of dry mucus powder = 0.5 kg of a live snail.
We have not included your capital and operating expenses here.
