Chick Processing Room
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.
Ceva Ecat-iD Campus 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 dropped and trapped chicks. Creating the smoothest, safest process at the hatchery and producing the highest quality of chicks is the main purpose of Ceva automated equipment.
Ecat-iD's chicks separator solutions have the ability to allow saving time and labor costs.
This machine was carefully and efficiently made to allow chicks to pass through rollers onto a conveyor below, having egg-shell waste automatically separated and carefully removed.
Moving chicks as quickly as possible through the hatchery is paramount, always respecting animal welfare principles.
Our automated chick counter can process up to 60,000 chicks per hour, via two separate ways, ensuring that the exact number of birds is filtered into boxes ready for swift transportation to farms for earlier feed and water access.
