To reliably preserve the genetic potential of day old chicks all the way to the farm
Proven under extreme climate and road conditions, a specially designed airflow system distributes air evenly over the rows of chick boxes inside the unit. For day old chicks not yet fully able to control their own body temperature, the finite control of air speed, air temperature and heat production recreates a hatchery environment on the move, for healthy chicks on delivery.
Heat, water vapour and CO2 are removed through air outlets and a recirculation duct, effectively maintaining the chicks’ body temperatures at between 39.5 - 40.5 °C. Easy to operate and maintain, the chick transportation unit provides continuous in-cabin monitoring of the chicks’ climate inside the truck. The climate control unit is easy to reach, for checking and to change and clean filters - and on despatch from the hatchery or arrival at the farm, there is no need for level positioning, which saves time in loading and unloading the chicks.
All surfaces, fixings and finishes are designed to resist the ingress of moisture and bacteria, to prevent the formation of dirt traps. Designed for low maintenance costs and minimum downtime, the chick transportation unit operates independently from the truck engine.
