PES-10: Animal friendly and human

As from January 2012 onwards the European legislation forbids the use of crushing or any other animal-unfriendly method when killing animals. The PES-10 thus is a very ‘humane’ alternative which has been endorsed by various European reports.

The PES-10 machine is a system which enables the continuous euthanasia of day-old chicks within a production line. The main advantage of the PES-10 is the fact that the euthanised day-old chicks remain intact when leaving the machine. They thus can be used as food for other animals in zoos, pet shops and so on. Day-old chicks have a high nutritional value for other animals. They have a low fat content and they are rich in proteins and vitamins when being euthanised this way.
During the Utrecht Trade Fair of 2001 the PES-10 won the silver medal with regard to design and its industrial applicability.

The entry opening is at the left upper side while the output opening is at the right upper side of the machine. Entering the chicks can be done both manually or automatically. The automatic way however is preferable since it ensures the even supply of chicks. Through an adjustable opening at the entry side of the machine. chicks evenly fall onto a conveyor belt. They lose consciousness after three seconds and peacefully go to sleep. Being unconscious they are transported to the bottom of the machine. After approx. four minutes they leave the machine at the right side.

In the unlikely event the gas nevertheless escapes this will be noticed by the additional external sensor (off the PES-10). If the sensor detects gas, the system will shut down and the gas supply will stop immediately.

High quality and user-friendly

This machine is entirely made of stainless steel AISI 304. It has a blasted frame. The cover panels are made of polished P240. After years of examination and after having built various machines we succeeded in optimizing the user-friendliness of the PES-10.

The reactions of our customers about our systems speak for themselves.

Maintenance and Cleaning

You can easily clean the machine. To rinse all parts of the PES-10 you just have to remove the cover panels. The conveyor system can be fully dismantled within 30 minutes if required and subsequently can be thoroughly cleaned (for example in case of a bacterial infection).
