Prinzen Introduces Ovoset18 April 2012
NETHERLANDS - The OVOSET is a most affordable solution for setting hatching eggs onto setter trays by a machine. The incoming flow of eggs is carefully aligned and positioned points down.
The setter trays are manually positioned by the operator, where the OVOSET will automatically gently place the eggs onto the tray. The manual handling of setter trays, in combination with the automatic points down setting of the OVOSET, gives high efficiency.
An accurate points down setting of hatching eggs onto setter trays, can provide high returns for hatcheries, by means of improved hatchability and chick quality. Every 1 per cent of wrongly (point up) placed hatching eggs reduces the output of viable chicks with 0.2 per cent. The OVOSET uses the proven Prinzen egg points down principle, which assures a points down setting of 99.7 per cent, and is also integrated in the high end solutions of the Prinzen Setter Line.
The machine capacity of the OVOSET is 20.000 hatching eggs per hour, depending on the tray type applied and egg quality. The OVOSET can be integrated for egg collection on-farm, as well for incoming egg handling in moderate capacity hatcheries. The compact design of the OVOSET creates maximum flexibility in the egg handling room. Optional to the OVOSET, Prinzen can supply Elgra3 egg grading, coding, UV-disinfection and candling unit.
