The Stork AeroScalder won the AGRAme award for the Best New Poultry Product for Gulf Market at the AGRAme trade show in Dubai. This award is another boost for the successful new Stork AeroScalder, and a confirmation of Marel Stork Poultry Processing's position as global technology leader for poultry processing solutions.

The AeroScalder introduces a new scalding concept that uses humidified hot air for scalding broilers. The scalding system has several advantages: It saves up to 75 percent of water, up to 50 percent of energy, and broilers are no longer immersed into scalding water. Furthermore, there is virtually no cross-contamination during scalding.

The AGRAme award is the second award for the AeroScalder. Last year at EuroTier, it received the EuroTier Golden Innovation award. The AeroScalder is the result of years of research into a completely new scalding concept. Since its introduction in 2012 several poultry processors decided to install the AeroScalder in their plant. Adam Hazeldene, Technical Services Manager from Hazeldene´s says:"The AeroScalder is an integrated system that is good for everyone, the environment and the productivity. It has improved efficiencies and streamlined our operation."
