The water spray ring gives the birds an even spray of cold, for quick feather release and the waterproof switch ensures operation safety.

This Featherman Stainless Scalder with Manual Dunker is a great setup for a team that doesn’t want to monitor water temperature but has the ability to do a bit of manual labor (putting birds on the shackles and dunking them). The manual dunker mounts on the Featherman scalder in about 5 seconds, locking into place. No tools are required. The dunking arm also pivots from left to right making loading and unloading birds easy. Heavy, adjustable springs allow any load of poultry to be neutrally balanced for effortless dunking.

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).
