Volkan 1600

The Volkan 1600 is a DEFRA ‘Type Approved’ top loading extra large capacity incinerator ideal for managing the disposal of large animal carcasses and abattoir waste. All models in the Volkan Range are supplied with integral secondary chambers and fully conform to EU By-Products Regulation (ABPR) (EC) No 142/2011.

Designed, engineered and manufactured at our Worcester production facility in the UK the Volkan 1600 is practical to manage, the low loading large bed along with the arched lid of the main chamber making it ideal for the disposal of the remains of whole large cow carcasses. Because of its larger than average size the Volkan 1600 also handles abattoir waste well and with biosecurity an ever important issue for farming enterprises it provides the ultimate containment solution. The Volkan 1600 has also become popular with Equine Cremation businesses and our understanding of how APHA and Planning Departments work have helped many customers to overcome stressful form-filling.

Ideally suited for:

  • Equine cremation
  • Beef herds
  • Dairy units
  • Abattoirs
  • Pig operations
