Machine Construction

Integral to each model in the Volkan Range is the unique Waste Spectrum monolithic casting system:

  • Ensures maximum strength and reliability in comparison to bricked linings
  • Materials expand and contract at the same rate as opposed to bricks and mortar
  • Prevents animal fats penetrating the lining which prolongs the life of the incinerator
  • Insulating board is used to reduce heat loss
  • Maintains an even working temperature for the refractory
  • Our Stainless Anchor System maintains the integrity of the lining


  • Easy to operate – Full training provided
  • Front loading design provides easy access and is ideally suited for individual carcasses
  • Temperature controlled pulse fired burners for optimal efficiency
  • Low thermal mass linings for minimal heat loss
  • PLC timer controls with automatic burner shut off function and rapid ignition pulse fired burners for low running costs
  • Burns up to 50kgs an hour
  • Static or mobile options available – subject to local load value regulations
  • Can be loaded whilst in operation, maximising the inherent thermal efficiency of our monolithic lining
  • Electrical Supply – works on a single phase 16 Amp 230-volt supply, fitted with a 3 pin round Euro plug
  • A stainless steel, single skin exhaust stack is supplied as standard
