The Necessity System for Layer Farming Equipment
The egg collection system plays an important role in the collection of eggs on poultry farms for breeding laying hens. In short, I will explain to you, the reduction of labor intensity in the collection and sorting of eggs, compliance with biological safety requirements, reduction of bird stress is the justification of their economic efficiency and the advantages of egg processing systems from our company.
The egg Collection System includes:
1. machine-egg collection (one for each battery equipment);
2. Longitudinal belt conveyors, providing the withdrawal of eggs to the ends of batteries;
3. Transverse and inclined conveyor with lifting mechanism and egg processing table.
Belt conveyors are made of polypropylene, have good resistance against corrosion. Their width is from 50 mm to 70 mm. In the process of transporting eggs, they move at a speed of one to three meters per minute. So slowly and calmly that they are good at ensuring the integrity of the eggs in the process of transprotection.
On the machine-egg collection there are many parallel-platy claws, they are equipped on the lifting chain. These platike claws can grasp the eggs, and smoothly lead them to the ends of the batteries through the machine-egg collection. Longitudinal conveyor belts have a smooth speed regulation, during transport is silent, and so almost does not interfere with chicken.
How the Egg Collection Functions?
Conveyor belts lie on the eaves trays of each floor. Each machine-egg collector has a drive station. When the drive station starts to work, it drives the conveyor belts, and eggs carried by the hen lying on the belts gradually and accurately arrive at the plastic claws of the collector. Longitudinal belt conveyors consist of uncountable plastic claws, and have a smooth speed adjustment, which can be done by turning the control knob on the remote control. In the process of collecting eggs, the longitudinal belt conveyors provide the eggs to the ends of the batteries, then along the inclined conveyor – to the egg collection table. And the staff of poultry farming collects eggs.
What are the Advantages?
Firstly, this system helps to reduce labor intensity in collecting eggs. This does not take much time, because the staff do not need to run around the poultry house anymore. In many respects thanks to this system, the number of service personnel reduces, and that allows saving money for the salary.
Secondly, full automation means that machines replace people in farms. When collecting eggs from laying hens there is less contact with the attendants, it is good that excludes infections and diseases from a person.
Thirdly, accurate mechanics reduces the likelihood of damage to the egg. It’s true. The design of our system has passed a lot of authority, and in the end, it got a good result (egg damage to 0.5%) on our experimental base of laying hens.
Who needs an egg collection system?
Of course, with a large number of livestock to keep laying hens and getting a cheap egg, automation at the poultry farm is the best way out. In farms with more than 10,000 heads, the cost of equipment and its contents may be feasible.
