As soon as the eggs start their journey through the hatchery, Ecat-iD’s intelligently designed equipment ensures a smooth, clean and fast process from farm tray to incubator.
As part of our commitment to ensure the highest quality of animal welfare and biosecurity, our egg processing equipment is designed to meet the throughput capacity of today’s modern hatchery, while maintaining these high standards.
At Ecat-iD we understand that maximising processing capacity is of paramount importance. This is why our specialist chick room equipment, such as the Egginject, Laser Life and Upside down detector work to ensure that eggs being processed are of the highest quality. Whether that is ensuring that the candling process removes deads and non-viable eggs from incubation, or ensuring that all eggs are correctly positioned, ensuring a better hatch - our equipment is designed to work for improved hatchery efficiency.
From the time chicks leave their incubators to being transported away from the hatchery, they need to be cleanly separated from their shells, accurately counted, sexed and carefully placed in their stacker trays in a fast, stress-free process.
Ecat-iD works tirelessly to ensure that all its equipment works together efficiently and effectively, reducing the amount of manual handling that can cause injury or stress to the birds and drastically reducing floor and trapped chicks. Creating the smoothest, safest process at the hatchery and producing the highest quality of chicks is the main purpose of Ecat-iD automated equipment.
Our reliable hygiene and washing equipment for trays and boxes provides peace of mind time after time. Our commitment to hygiene is evident in every piece of technology we produce, with all parts designed to maximise water run-off and aid the cleaning process.
Ecat-iD's technology aims to reduce the creation and movement of waste at all stages of the hatchery process. In addition, we offer the latest in waste handling technology, including vacuum pumps.
