All types of solutions offered by TEXHA, except for the floor poultry management system, use the belt-based litter removal technology, which ensures high-quality litter removal and maintenance of the equipment in clean condition, thus contributing to the improved microclimate in the poultry house.
This system offers quick and reliable litter removal simultaneously from all levels.
Dedicated system design allows timely and easy removal of litter, which helps to avoid accumulation of ammonia vapors and has favorable effect on the poultry unit microclimate.
The litter removal system consists of:
Polypropylene belts are manufactured at TEXHA’s own factory from high-quality raw materials.
Litter removal belt characteristics:
The polypropylene belt is located below every level of cells along the battery. When the litter is gradually accumulated, it is carried by the belt along the battery towards the drive station, where the dedicated scrappers move it to the transverse litter unloading conveyor.
The belt is operated by the drive station, which is also used to adjust its position, where necessary. The tension station serves to maintain the required belt tensioning level. The tension station design uses the auger-type cleaning shaft, which ensures cleansing of the litter removal belt on the inside.
In the drive station area, the belt surface is cleaned by the dedicated scrappers made of the wear-resistant material. Special mechanism presses the scrappers against the work surface of the belt, which allows efficient cleansing of belt from litter.
A curtain made from dense wear-resistant material at the end of the battery prevents the litter from scattering during discharge to the transverse conveyor. The curtain is easily removable during maintenance of drive shafts and cleaning of scrappers.
The transverse conveyor is equipped with the rubber-textile belt for removal of litter from the poultry unit directly to the inclined conveyor, which, in turn, is used for discharge of litter into a vehicle for further disposal. The inclined conveyor also features a dedicated cover made of galvanized steel.
Feeding system designed by TEXHA combines state-of-art solutions and technologies in order to successfully ensure one key and indisputable principle – preservation of the feed quality and timely distribution of the required feed portions for every bird.
Use of our feeding systems helps to ensure the following:
TEXHA offers two different types of feed distribution systems:
Bin-based feed distribution system consists of the following:
External storage feed bin is intended for loading and storage of dry feeds. Auger-type transverse loading conveyor supplies the feed from the external bin to the mobile feed distribution unit hoppers for each battery. The mobile feed distribution units are filled with feed on a rotating basis. Transverse loading conveyor is equipped with automated shutdown system. Mobile feed distribution units, in their turn, may either supply the feed to all batteries simultaneously or, where needed, operated in the desired sequence. Transverse loading conveyor is equipped with automated shutdown system. Automated feed distribution system also may be installed.
Mobile feed distribution unit hopper features dedicated inspection hatch that allows control of the feed volume supplied to the feed tray.
The chain-and-disk conveyor is used in order to reduce the transverse hopper loading time at the poultry farms with large flock.
Each mobile feed distribution unit is comprises of two composite hoppers located at the two opposite sides of cage battery. Number of the composite hopper sections depends on the number of levels – i.e. one section per every level. The feed distribution unit is equipped with the leveler brushes or feed dispensers.
Chain- based feed distribution system consists of the following:
Transverse feed loading conveyor supplies the feed from the external bin to the agitator hopper. The feed agitator constantly shakes the feed mass in order to prevent sticking and lump formation. The purpose of this process is to ensure even feed distribution along the feed gutter of entire cage battery.
The cage equipment features special adjustment plate to ensure free access to feed for any birds regardless of their age. This plate also serves as a barrier of sorts in order to prevent a chick from leaving the cage by itself.
The cage interior includes a dedicated grid, thanks to which the chicks of any size may easily access the feed. This features eliminate the need for chick grading.
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, valves and fittings. Depending on the technical specifications, water pressure regulators also may be incorporated.
The filter ensures purification of water from mechanical impurities. Use of 2 filters connected in-parallel through valves and fittings allows uninterrupted water supply to the drinking system without a need for shut-off during maintenance of one of filters.
Pressure gauges in water supply system control the system pressure and record precise values of filter performance rating.
Water flow meter allows operational control of the water consumption, which in turn assists in analyzing the flock condition.
In order to maintain optimal water pressure, the membrane-type pressure regulators are used.
Water distribution system for cage batteries is made of pipes manufactured from food-grade plastic.
The nipple drinkers are attached to the plastic square section pipe. Such design not only reduces the number of connections, but also ensure high-quality assembly and leak-proof connection sealing.
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 height of the chick.
Easy access to water even for a day-old 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.
