HIT FEED FEEDER FOR BROILERS
In order to extend its existing product line, TEXHA has developed a new feeder model called Hit Feed, which is intended for use as part of the feeding system in broiler floor management solutions.
Hit Feed feeder is specifically designed for broiler meat producers committed to improve the final product quality and enhance the production volume.
Hit Feed model was designed in cooperation with the leading broiler meat farms, who kindly offered their operational facility sites for trials and testing. This helped us to account for all customer requirements and develop the multi-purpose feeder that can boast a number of decisive advantages.
The bottom of Hit Feed feeder is submerged into the bedding layer for a specific depth in order to make search for feedstuff easier for chicks and ensure free access to the feed, which is the crucial factor during the first days of the chick’s life, thus contributing to the fast growth of the chick. As the bird grows, the feeding lines may be gradually elevated, thus raising the feeder above the bedding layer.
KoChiBo FEEDER FOR BROILER CHICKENS
In cooperation with our Japanese partners, TEXHA has designed multi-purpose feeder intended for use as part of the broiler chicken feeding system regardless of the utilized rearing technology.
Key outstanding feature of KoChiBo feeder is preservation of feed and reduction of irrecoverable feed loss!
Cost-effectiveness and versatility:
KoChiBo feeder features moveable bottom that enables adjustment of the feeder depth. This features is especially important for chicks during the first days of their life, since it significantly facilitates a search for feedstuff and ensures easy access to feed, thus contributing to the fast growth of the birds.
With the growth of a chick, the feeding lines may be gradually raised to increase the feeder depth. Therefore, the volume of the feed spilled into the feedbox is also increased thanks to the movement of feeder frame upwards relatively to its bottom. This allows supplying the birds with the higher quantities of feed, while preventing loss of the feed from scattering.
TEXHA company offers reliable, efficient and easy-to-use drinking system. The purpose of this system is quite simple – to supply the birds with water of proper quality and in sufficient quantity. Furthermore, this system also serves for delivery of necessary medications to the birds.
The system consists of the following:
The water treatment units comprises of filters, water flow meter, medicator, pressure gauges, water pressure regulator, valves and fittings. The water treatment unit is designed for nominal water flow rate of 2,5 m/hour.
The filter ensures purification of water from mechanical impurities. Use of 2 filters of various purification efficiency connected in-parallel allows supply of high-quality drinking water to the drinking system.
Pressure gauges in water supply system control the system pressure and record precise values of filter performance rating.
The medicator serves for administration of medications with highly precise dosage.
Water flow meter allows operational control of the water consumption, which in turn assists in analyzing the flock condition.
Water supply system is made of plastic pipes manufactured from food-grade material.
The nipple drinkers are attached to the plastic square section pipe with the length of 3 m.
The pipe walls feature special bulges in the nipple screwing-in points in order to ensure reliable nipple attachment.
The drinking line height may be easily adjusted depending on the height of a chick.
Microclimate in the poultry management is no less important than the quality of poultry housing equipment, and its role can be hardly overestimated.
Regardless of the cross breed or genetic inheritance of the flock, without proper microclimate conditions the birds cannot maintain good health and yield high-quality product.
Microclimate inside the poultry house is the combination of such factors as temperature, humidity, air flow rate, atmospheric pressure, noise level, air composition, microbiological contamination level, et cetera.
The microclimate system represents the production process, the purpose of which is to create and balance the necessary microclimate parameters using the dedicated technical facilities and instruments.
The poultry farming researchers suggest that the flock productivity depends on microclimate condition by approximately 10-30%. Unfavorable microclimatic conditions result in the reduced disease resistance of the birds. Moreover, the microclimate directly affects the service life of the equipment and even the poultry farm buildings.
The resulting efficient operation of the microclimate system depends on the correct choice of equipment, its correct installation and proper calculation of the system parameters in general.
TEXHA excels in design of automated microclimate systems. When choosing the system, a number of specific conditions should be taken into account, including, but not limited to the cross breed and size of flock, geographic location of the poultry far, i.e. climatic zone, et cetera.
The microclimate system may comprise of the one to four sub-systems in various combinations:
HUMIDIFICATION / COOLING
For hot climatic zones, TEXHA offers cooling units with cellular design (evaporation panels). The cooling panels are designed based on the best and the most innovative developments in the industry, which results in the optimal cooling effect regardless of climatic and operational conditions.
The evaporation panels are made of dedicated cellulose paper with cellular structure, which contributes to the optimal water-to-air contact conditions. Such cellulose paper is carefully processed with odor-free resin, thanks to which the panels have high water-adsorption coefficient and stable structural shape. The special cellular form of the paper bands crossing angle-wise to the symmetrical air flow allows achievement of high cooling performance, while maintaining minimum pressure drop.
Proper temperature regime is essential for productivity of the flock, especially in the early period of life. TEXHA offers highly efficient poultry house heating system with minimum costs. The system uses direct and indirect heating units operated on natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas or diesel fuel, as well as the water-based fan heaters.
