For the safe, stable destacking of hatcher baskets, the destacker automatically breaks down a stack to supply empty hatcher baskets ready for re-use, for example via an automatic transfer system. The destacker accomodates baskets stacked lengthways or crosswise, so it is suitable for use in every hatchery situation. Easy-to-run and operator friendly with very low noise/vibration emissions. Requires zero-to-minimal maintenance for a long life.

How it works

  • A stack of empty hatcher baskets is transported to the destacker
  • The stack is automatically loaded into the destacking unit
  • The destacker raises the entire stack upwards, leaving the bottom basket on the conveyor, which is transported to the transport conveyor system
  • The remaining stack is lowered onto the conveyor and the entire stack, without the bottom basket, is then raised again
  • This sequence is repeated until the entire pile of baskets has been destacked and a new stack is loaded into the system
