Waste Disposal Systems

Expand All
  • Description
    The vacuum system is an efficient, convenient and bio-safe method to dispose of eggshell refuse, unhatched eggs and culled chicks/poults. The system is independent of the hatchery layout and eliminates exposure of waste products to live production. The holding tank with support structure is located outside the hatchery for easy and convenient emptying.


    • Available in sizes ranging from 100 to 700 cubic foot storage capacity, or as a continuous flow system for direct flow into a container or truck, eliminating the holding tank.
    • System delivered completely ready for installation on a cement pad.
    • Multiple hopper system.
    • Easy connection to chick/shell separator for no contact removal.
    • 30 horsepower vacuum pump package available for multiple pick-up and/or long distance flow requirements.
    • Reduced voltage "soft start" for reduced inrush current and smoother ramp-up of the vacuum pump.
    • Automatic Rinse Option
    • Large 36 inch diameter "Easy-Flow™" dump door that will not clog like competitors models.
    • Exclusive "no-leak" gasket and pneumatic seal/lock system is guaranteed not to leak.
    • Fully pneumatic dump door control system greatly reduces maintenance and eliminates the need for electrical power feed to the outside tank, reducing installation costs.
    • Every vacuum holding tank features a rinsing system for easy rinse after each dump assisting in proper dump door sealing and reducing bacteria and odor.
    • Durable performance built 25 horsepower vacuum pump package includes Roots Universal RAI Rotary vacuum pump, heavy duty muffler/silencer, U.S. manufactured high efficiency TEFC motor with 1.15 minimum service factor, full motor control panel with motor starter, disconnect, individual fusing and overload protection.
