High water velocity around the product maximizes heat transfer to the follicles and loosens the feathers.The Turbo Scalder 1070 opens the entire feather pack and avoids dry feathers in well-feathered regions, e.g. the back and sides. Uniform and effective scalding is a prerequisite for obtaining a high picking performance without whitening the breast meat.
Water level and temperature are easily controlled on a touch panel or even remotely to stay in control at all times. From the touchscreen, the operator can comfortably choose between multiple preset recipes to best fit the programmed production.
Large manholes are placed on each side of the scalder to allow for easy access during cleaning and maintenance. Automatic pre-production pasteurization effectively reduces the bacterial load in the water before the next processing batch. When filling the tub with water before daily production start, the water is heated to 65ºC/149ºF to eliminate bacteria whereafter cold water is added to reach the required scalding temperature.
