Featherman Stainless Scalder with Roto-Dunker:
The goal: No pin feathers. Period. This only happens with a perfect scald. The Featherman Scalder holds a constant water temperature to help you achieve that perfect scald. Made of 16 gauge stainless steel with a 100,000 BTU propane burner, temperature control within a five degree range, and sized for four birds at a time (40 gallon).
- 16 Gauge Stainless Steel
- 100,000 BTU Propane Burner
- Temperature control within a five degree range
- 40 Gallon water capacity
- Sized to scald four birds at a time
The Roto-Dunker fits on top of the Featherman scalder for hands-and-back-free scalding. The Roto-Dunker will handle up to 2 – 5 lbs (dressed weight) birds per basket (20 lbs. total). Each basket is turned by a light duty, geared down motor. The consistency of the scald is unparalleled because only half the birds are in the scalder at any time and there is less yo-yoing of water temperature. There are no pinch points as the rotation easily stops in the event of an obstruction, making the Roto-Dunker absolutely safe.
Kill Cone Stand w/Broiler Cones:
Efficient, humane, and easy-cleaning, the all-stainless steel kill cone stand speeds up the processing and eases the handling of birds at the front end of your processing line. “It was the only thing keeping us from 200 birds per hour,” says Joel Salatin.
Includes (8) S/S Broiler Cones. Especially designed no back-out cones fit compactly around a swiveling stand of stainless steel and are easy to clean. Blood caught in the PVC trough below is easily removed and the trough easily cleaned.
