The water spray ring gives the birds an even spray of cold, for quick feather release and the waterproof switch ensures operation safety. We offer a foot operated pedal switch, too, for an additional cost.
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.
At six rotations per minute there is no need for a timer, no need to worry about a start/stop switch. It scalds birds up to about five pounds dressed weight, the operation is silent, and produces a consistent scald every time. The Roto-Dunker is like having an extra man in the processing crew!
