Addfield introduces poultry incineration solution

Staffordshire agricultural incinerator manufacturer Addfield Environmental Systems has introduced a highly flexible solution for large broiler houses and poultry farms with the release and installation of the first A50L in the UK

The manufacturer said that the A50L had taken agricultural incineration to new levels by being able to achieve almost continuous loading and operation. It is capable of managing more than one tonne a day or less than 100 kg. This gives farmers far more control over their falling stock than traditional solutions and increases their operational savings.

Addfield has now officially released the A50L Agricultural Incinerator in the UK, which Leedsway Farms was the first to receive in the UK. By enabling the waste to be loaded almost continuously via an automated hopper and bin tipper system, one of the many options available for this machine allows multiple throughputs during day operation compared to alternative similar size options.

James Grant, business development director at Addfield, said, “It has been a very pleasant result taking off as it has in the UK. We work with farms of all sizes from micro small holdings through to some of the largest pig and poultry producers in the world. For which the A50L was initially developed for customers in the Middle East.

“It happened to be a genuine coincidence that we had this machine in development at a time when we started seeing inquiries from larger poultry farms based in the UK looking for a bigger machine with a greater capability, which this machine was perfect for. We are over the moon that it has been received so well closer to our home in the UK.”

The A50L is primarily designed for poultry markets and is not exclusive to birds, as it is also perfectly suited for pig and sheep farmers, due to its large loading chamber and increased capacity.
