Volkan 450

The Volkan 450 is a DEFRA ‘Type Approved’ medium capacity incinerator designed as a purpose built model for free range and intensive broiler operations in the poultry sector. 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 450 incinerator is built using our market leading unique hearth bar technology. Manufactured as standard with seven or nine, our unique configurable hearth bar system will allow you to fully configure the number of hearth bars you use in your machine based on the waste type. Delivered with a total of 14 hearth bars, you will have between five and seven spares as standard. With above and below hearth burners this model is capable of managing low and *high capacity throughput’s. The Volkan 450 is perfect for adapting to the variable throughput of a broiler operation either for managing day to day mortality or whole building clean down after emptying.

Ideally suited for:

  • Broiler growing operations
  • Free range chicken units
  • Commercial layer producers
