Poultry >> Conveyor Systems
for taking out the birds from cages
The LUBING broiler conveyor was developed for the dependable and safe removal of poultry from cage systems. The basis of the conveyor is provided by the tried-and-tested LUBING conveyor technology from the area of egg transport. In order to meet the special demands required during animal transport, many aspects of the construction of the conveyor system were optimized. Particular attention was given to the avoidance of shear zones to assure the injuryfree transport of the animals.
The broiler conveyor is moved inside the house by a lift system in order to reach the different tiers of the cage system. The removal within the cage system is usually taken over by the manure belt. The amount of personnel required to taking out the animals can thus be reduced to a minimum.
At this time two versions of the LUBING broiler conveyor are available, each differing slightly in their technical design.
In both systems, the length adjustment during operation of the lift system is implemented by shifting the drive.
With mobile connecting unit
The broiler conveyor is divided into two sections. A straight broiler conveyor with short drive is installed on the lift system inside the house as a fixed mounting. A mobile unit can be inserted into the short drive during the taking out procedure. Thus, the need for a larger anteroom can be eliminated; a permanent opening in the side wall of the house is not necessary. The mobile unit can be used for processes at various houses. If no taking out is currently scheduled, the broiler conveyor can be placed in the facility in a space-saving manner, ready for use in the highest position.
Connecting mobile unit
The mobile connection component is placed into the special support and securely attached using a pawl.
With stationary connecting unit
The broiler conveyor is mounted as a fixed unit in the house. The overall length of the system can be up to 40 meters due to the solid front drive. The frame, which is screwed to the floor, allows the roller-mounted front drive to be moved safely. The individual tiers of the cage are approached by a lift system.
Frame on the flooring
The solid framework allows the secure moving of the front drive. The height level can be precisely adjusted using the integrated threaded spindle.
