Scalding with Powerful Water Agitation

AirJet Scalder 1050

Fast Immersion into Hot Water

In the AirJet 1050, birds are immersed into hot water to loosen the feathers before picking. Air is used to agitate the water, which effectively reduces the water density and causes the product to immerse. Heating panels connected to hot water or steam heat the water inside the scalding tank.

Powerful Water Agitation

Air blowers connected to nozzles installed lengthwise at the bottom of the tank powerfully agitate the water to promote effective ruffling of the feathers and enhance a good heat transfer rate to the follicles. Deep water penetration improves the scalding efficiency and the subsequent picking process.

Monitor the Scalding Process Status

The AirJet 1050 is delivered with an operator touch panel that gives easy access to temperature settings, and the start and stop functions. A timer function allows for the daily production start-up to be programmed. The water temperature is easily controlled on the touchpanel, and sensors indicate through alarms if the temperature deviates from set points.

Ensure a Hygienic Scalding Process

Large doors are placed on each side of the scalder to allow for easy access during cleaning and maintenance. Automatic pasteurization reduces the bacterial load in the water before production starts by heating the water to 65ºC/149ºF when filling the tub.
