  • Automatic Manure Belt Adjustment (AMBA)

    Automatic Manure Belt Adjustment (AMBA)

    Using manure belts in poultry houses reduces ammonia emissions and thus contributes to an improved climate in the house and to the birds’ health. Intervals between manure removals should therefore be as short as possible. In the past, however, manure belts had to be constantly monitored during operation, sometimes requiring adjustment by experienced staff. Manure was therefore not removed as often as would be ideal.

  • Aviary Systems: The Versatile and Modular NATURA Family

    We started our experience with laying aviaries as early as in the 1980s. Alternative systems were an early focus of our work so that we can offer you a wide range of modern aviary systems today.

Especially for new barn buildings, licensing authorities often require that the point of exit of the exhaust air be installed at a height of no less than 10 m and that the exhaust air is extracted at one location (i.e. bundled). This makes the air jet produced by a bundled emission source more stable.
