  • Uniformity and great scalding quality
  • Settable temperature and scalding time
  • Protected mobile parts ensure greater safety for operators

Swine Scalding Tanks perform this process in a safe and hygienic way, thanks to the protections attached on its moving parts and its hygienic design, which facilitates the cleaning of the equipment. Its excellent scalding quality is due to the process being performed by immersing the swine in hot water while it is being moved by the Air Conveyor. 

The equipment is specially designed to avoid the fall of swine in the tank, and to obtain maximum uniformity in the swine temperature. To achieve these goals, the tank has a time and temperature control system, making the process adjustable according to the customer's needs. At the end of the process, the scalded pig is automatically transported to the hair removal.
