  • The excessive water flow results in a thoroughly scalded bird. Additionally, the fast water flow spreads the wings, which further enhances the scald result.

  • A very low energy consumption resulting from an optimal heat exchange and a minimal energy loss.

  • As the water is continuously mixed, a very accurate temperature level can be obtained.

  • Maintenance costs are low; fewer pumps are used (only one pump per three sections) and the motor is placed outside of the scalding section in order to avoid any contact with aggressive vapour.

  • Easy to clean without any dirt traps.



Processing times are especially critical in the slaughtering department. For optimum feather removal, the right balance between temperature and scalding time should be applied. The longer it takes to loosen the feathers in the scalder, the further rigor mortis will set in, making it harder to remove the feathers. By means of effective scalding, the processing time can be reduced and the plucking result will be optimised.


The Meyn jet stream scalder has a unique water flow system that pulls the carcasses down in a stream that moves with the line direction.

As the water floats with high velocity along the entire skin, the heat exchange is optimised resulting in a shorter processing time. The water not only pulls the bird down, but also makes it move along with the line direction. This way, scalding at high line speeds is no longer an issue as products are not dragged to the surface and scalded on only e.g. one side. The Meyn jet stream scalder delivers an extreme uniform scalding result, independent of weight range or line speed.
