CUSHIONED
EGG
Electronic Drives
The innovative, electron!- i
cally-controlled drive '
system enables eggs to be 1
transported at a smooth, coni
ous speed on an endless con'
or with drive units loc£
intermittently up to 150’ apart
Optimum Rod Spacing
Space between each cushioned rod is the
key to egg separation and preventing
smaller eggs from slipping through the
conveyor while allowing all debris to be
sifted out.
Design Flexibility I'l
The unique “Cushioned Rod” egg conveyor q r
enables you to custom design a system that gen- J
tly transports eggs up, down, around corners and
in a continuous straight line without transfer, and
even declines to match processing equipment.
Custom Corners
The unique radial corner system in the Farmer
Automatic rod conveyor can be custom
designed to fit 15° through 90° turns.
