Jansen Poultry Equipment (JPE) has expanded its egg collection systems with the MultiFlex Elevator. The MultiFlex Elevator is used to transfer eggs from multiple tiers to a cross conveyor or egg collection table, such as with: 2-tier laying nest (Premium+, XL and LayMaxx) and VolMaxx commune layer cage; and poultry houses with multiple floors or multi tier Comfort aviary or nest systems.
The MultiFlex Elevator can easily over-bridge differences in height; without having to use elaborate conveyor systems. The egg transfer between the egg belt and the MultiFlex Elevator ensures a smooth transition of the egg unto the elevator. The egg transfer also separates shell-less eggs and expels any possible dirt into the dirt collection tray situated underneath, according to the company.
At both the entry and exit unit of the MultiFlex Elevator, a curve guiding system is implemented to prevent eggs from being bounced into each other and star cracks. The integrated dirt collection tray underneath each transfer and exit unit, which collects dirt and shell-less eggs, is easy to remove and clean.
The elevator can easily over-bridge differences in height; without having to use elaborate conveyor systems. It takes up a minimum of space, because of which more of the floor space can be used to house more birds.
In terms of technical specifications, it is suitable for egg belts with a width of 120, 250, 400, 500 and 600 mm. The maximum capacity is 35,000 eggs per hour per elevator, amply sufficient for every common situation. The amount of entry units (i.e. egg belts) is variable, the maximum amount is six entry units.
Despite the fact an elevator is already available on the market for years, Jansen Poultry Equipment has successfully managed to add three new patents for their own MultiFlex Elevator, for the oval shape of the egg-carrier, because it reduces star cracks, cracks and contamination; egg transfer, because it also minimizes star cracks, cracks and contamination; and expel bar, when combined with the curved guidance system, metering wheels are not required.
