Sheep & Lamb Incinerators

With landfill and rendering costs growing at an alarming rate the idea of self-owning a small capacity lamb incinerator for your own use is becoming more and more viable – especially now with our competitive range of incinerator solutions and finance options available.

Sheep farmers are acutely aware of the rising costs associated with the disposal of fallen livestock and animal by-products. Incineration not only reduces these costs, but allows you to take full control of how you manage waste and bio-security on-site.

Most of our models are DEFRA type approved with a burn rate of less than 50kg per hour. This means that no planning permission is required. You can use them on your own farm for carcass disposal, and the destruction of other waste material allowed within the WID (Waste Incineration Directive).

All our range have a number of options and custom features available such as auto de-ashing, auto-loading and heat exchangers (that provide the ability to generate heat or hot water from your waste). All models below also feature a 2 second retention time in the secondary chamber and comply with EU animal by products regulations.
