The size of the scalder corresponds to the size of the scald water container. For example, a 30 inch scalder will have a scald area of 30″ x 29″. The overall area of the scalder would be approximately 41″ x 29″.
The additional length includes the space required for the drain and the controls. When you site the scalder in your facility, you should allow enough space to access the lift-off panel of the back of the scalder, which allows you access to the burner.
The number of chickens or turkeys that will fit into the scalder depends on the size of the birds. For example, a 30 inch scalder holds approximately 40 pounds of poultry, approximately 6 chickens or 2 turkeys.
If you can only afford to buy one piece of processing equipment, a scalder should be your first buy. Without a proper scald, plucking is a chore. A properly scalded chicken or turkey can easily be plucked by hand.
