Scalding Tank

In the Frontmatec scalding tank, the carcasses are fully submerged and pulled through hot water kept at a constant scalding temperature, providing an excellent result. The advantages of the scalding tank are: 

  • Constant scalding temperature
  • Decreased energy consumption
  • Low maintenance costs
  • User friendly operating panel
  • Proven scalding quality

A constant scalding temperature

The scalding tank is a modular solution based on 90° curved sections and straight vat sections of two meters each, including an inlet section with a pump and an outlet section with an overflow pipe and valve for drainage. Total length and design depends on capacity and available space at the plant.

As the carcasses are fully submerged in the hot water, the scalding results are excellent. Heating of the water is normally done by injecting steam at a pressure of 8 bar, but can also be through a heat exchanger.

The water temperature is thermostatically controlled and varies less than 0.5°C.
