We have three incinerators that are ideal for use on sheep farms:
Volkan 150 Incinerator - suitable capacity for sheep breeds of a medium size - capacity for one sheep. (<150kg)
Volkan 200 Sheep Incinerator - suitable for all sheep breeds - capacity for one large sheep or two medium sized sheep (<250kg)
Volkan 400 Sheep Incinerator - suitable for all sheep breeds - capacity for two to four sheep depending on size. (<400kg)
All of our models are DEFRA-type approved, high efficiency and low capacity animal incinerators. This means that you are legally allowed to use them on your own farm for carcass disposal, and that no planning permission is typically required.

Why should I choose an incinerator, rather than having my sheep collected?
The average cost of incinerating a sheep with a Waste Spectrum Incinerator is only £3-4 (based on current diesel and gas prices). The average cost of having that same sheep collected is estimated to be around £15.
If this is the case for you, you could be saving up to £12 a sheep! Purchasing an incinerator can save you a sizeable amount of money. Tell us your requirements and we'll estimate what you can save.
Beyond the financial benefits incineration also offers:
1. Bio-security - no carcasses are brought onto your farm, no carcasses leave your farm. Incineration is a pure and simple way to protect yourself against contamination from another farm.
2. Reliability - our incinerators typically last 12-15 years, and we have a dedicated service team on call should you experience any problems. No more waiting for collection.
3. Protect against future costs - when carcasses are collected, you pay for them to be transported and incinerated, so when fuel costs rise, you pay twice for the increase. Incinerators cut out this unnecessary cost, which helps to protect the environment, and your coffers.
