Hydrolisation and Fluidisation vessels are provided for Feather processing. Pre-heaters and auxiliary equipment such as separation vessels for service under pressure can also be provided.

Batch Cookers

Batch Cookers can be Designed and Manufactured to suit your particular requirements. Typically the design will included a steam heated jacket and rotor. The shell may be designed with allowance for in service wear and tear or may be lined in corrosion resistant stainless steel.

Continuous Sterilisers

A standardised design of Continuous Steriliser can be tailored to meet particular applications with throughputs up to 20 cu m/hour. The standardised design features a flighted shaft and steam heated jacket. Arrangements are provided for steam injection into the main vessel.

Hydrolisers and Fluidisers

Units with a throughput from 1 to 10 Tonnes/hour can be supplied for processing either Turkey or Chicken Feather. The design utilises vessels having steam heated jackets in a two-stage process. The shell can be designed to operate up to 10 barg and as with other applications a comprehensive system including the feed and intermediate pumps can be supplied.
