The first eggs have now been set at Hy-Line South Africa. EmTech were delighted to be chosen to supply 30 PrimoTech PT12 single-stage setters and
12 VidaTech hatchers along with control and alarm systems and ventilation equipment for this highly prestigious project.
Welcome to EmTech Hatchery Systems
Having been founded on a wealth of experience and collective knowledge we at EmTech recognise the importance of getting
the best results – not only from new equipment but from your existing systems too.
EmTech’s creativity, excellent products and hatchery results have resulted in many valuable orders worldwide, cementing EmTech’s
place as one of the leading and most dynamic incubator and hatchery ventilation suppliers in the market today.
Hatch window (hatch spread)
This is a typical example of The EmTech Effect in action. As you can see chicks hatch within a very short time frame. The EmTech Effect ensures that your chicks are better conditioned, less stressed and more able to withstand the rigours of the growing farm.
Hatch window (for % eggs hatched)
This graph shows the typical hatch window and while similar to % of hatch spread, represents the accumulative number by percentage to show the % of chicks hatched from the entire egg mass from the onset of piping. The very tight temperature controls result in a condensed hatching period. Typically, from EmTech incubators this is less than 24 hours but the majority hatch within a 12-hour period.
Flock Hatchability Performance
Based on four months data from the BroMargo Hatchery in Poland, this graph shows the performance of EmTech single stage setters and hatchers over three flocks compared with the Aviagen standard performance for Ross 308. As you can see, the results are excellent, especially in the early and late flocks where many other incubation systems struggle to reach target figures.
The above graph shows the very tight temperature spread of the air surrounding the egg mass – what we call the ‘temperature bandwidth’. The bandwidth is around 0.1°C early in the single-stage process but quickly increases as the embryos develop. EmTech’s well sealed cabinet and optimum airflow facilitates correct moisture loss and heat transfer from the egg mass while ensuring the bandwidth never exceeds 0.6°C. The result is well conditioned, unstressed chicks that hatch in a tight window – The EmTech Effect.
THE ECLIPSE PLC CONTROL SYSTEM
The Eclipse® incubator control is our premier system. It is based on a PLC platform for the ultimate in incubation control and energy efficiency. It is a highly intelligent system that constantly analyses the incubation environment. The interface is a user-friendly 5-inch intuitive high-quality touchscreen.
What our customers say
“We have just started the new extension that will take us well into 2017. We took the decision to work with a British hatchery supplier, Emtech. We have used this company in the past two years on smaller projects and have been very impressed with their installations, equipment and their experienced team.” – OmeadSerati, Managing Director of Hy-Line UK
“The EmTech team and the superior quality of their hatchery equipment, impressed us immensely. We knew that EmTech is a young company but were also well aware of their team’s reputation and pedigree in the poultry business over the last 25 years.” – Gijs Schimmel, President of Centurion Poultry
“We were looking to expand our hatchery business and looked at many suppliers. We chose Emtech to supply our new machines as the machines are not overly complicated. They have been able to customise the machines to our requirements, we have been very impressed with the quality of the finish, the prompt delivery and the enthusiasm of all of the staff. We are only a small hatchery but have always felt like an important customer and have received exceptional after sales service. It is an added bonus that they are local. Furthermore, our first two hatches of the season have shown an increase in hatchability of 15% and 22% so a very happy customer.” – Yvette Milton, Newland Farm Geese
