For efficiently separating day old chicks and egg shells
Day old chicks are cleanly and efficiently separated from shell, with waste product collected into a hopper to be removed from the building by a waste removal system. By tipping the baskets over the full width onto the conveyor belt, the density of chicks, shells and dead in shell is relatively low. This together with a minimal drop height ensures that the chicks are exposed to the absolute minimum of stress.
A manually adjustable variator enables the speed of the separator to be adjusted for optimised operation in todays modern, highly automated hatchery. In combination with the cyclone vacuum system, maximum separation yield can be achieved, which makes chick quality control on the selection belt much easier and more accurate. Various configurations make the separator suitable for almost every chick handling area.
