Volkan 400 IV

The Volkan 400 IV mobile system is a medium capacity incinerator offering the complete solution for the disposal of invasive vegetation. All models in the Volkan Range are supplied with integral secondary chambers and fully conform to EU Regulations and in accordance to the Environment Agency’s requirement guidelines for the safe disposal of non-native plants.

Designed, engineered and manufactured at our Worcester production facility in the UK the Volkan 400 IV mobile system is used nationwide by professionals providing customers with an effective and proven management solution of non-native plants such as Japanese Knotweed. Classed as ‘controlled waste’ under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 many non-native plants cannot be disposed of by composting or burial. Practical to manage, the Volkan 400 IV mobile system is both biosecure and environmentally friendly. The Volkan 400 IV can also be supplied as a static model.

  • PLC timer controls with automatic burner shut off function and rapid ignition pulse fired burners for low running costs
  • Burns up to 50kgs an hour
  • Can be supplied as a complete mobile system or incinerator only
  • Electrical Supply – works on a single phase 16 Amp 230-volt supply, fitted with a 3 pin round Euro plug
