  • Patent number: 4731908
    Abstract: An apparatus for the scalding of carcasses comprises a heat insulated cabin (1) for the carcasses (3) and fans (4) with appertaining air ducts (5) for the circulation of hot, humid air past the carcasses being conveyed through the cabin. Fan supported burners (6) and water atomizers (9) opening directly into the air ducts are provided for maintaining the temperature and humidity of the circulating air. The output of the burners (6) is adjusted directly by temperature sensors placed in the circulating air, while the water atomizers (9) are set for a constant output. The adjustment can adapt itself quickly to changing load conditions so that a constant condition is maintained in the cabin. The apparatus has also one or more air discharge ducts (10) for the air supplied to the cabin by the burners (6).
