Scalder

  • Heated water in the Scalder will loosen the feathers from the skin, ensuring a good plucking result
  • Air blowers agitate the water, meaning the birds are fully immersed in hot water
  • Stainless steel radiators provide indirect heating
  • Supplied with steam canopy and side panels

Our Pictured scalder is a revolutionary new development. For the first time in years, this machine has been completely re-designed.

With result: soo many changes and improvements……

  • The scalder has 50% volume (so less water to fill and heat)
  • has no moving parts inside the tank
  • is extremely easy and quick to clean with a high pressure washer at the end of slaughter process
  • we redesigned the shackle, into a much short shackles, resulting: no need for a steam canapes
  • a closing lid, so extreme reduced energy waste

General:

Before plucking and after the birds have bled out, the birds are conveyed through a water tank filled with hot, scalding water. Hence the name of the machine: scalder or scalding tank. The water is be heated by heating elements and functions to open the pores, help loosen the feathers from the skin. Blowers inside the tank will create turbulence in the water, meaning the birds are completely immersed and scalded.

Three general scalding settings are:

  • soft/semi-scalding at 50-54ºC for 3 minutes
  • medium scalding at 54-56ºC for 2,5 minutes
  • hard scalding at 58-60ºC for 2 minutes

The higher the scalding temperature, the better feathers are loosened from the follicles. However, it also has the most effect on the skin: the outer skin layer, also called epidermis, will also loosen and will be removed by the plucker. This leads to a lighter skin, which is a product preference in some countries. It is generally not recommended to combine hard scalding with air chilling, because the skin will discolor unfavorably due to dehydration in the air chilling room/.l
