The modern hatchery faces three key challenges to future growth and profitability: genetic progress, uniformity and post hatch performance. Pas Reform meets these challenges with our next generation SmartPro™ product range, now expanded with the NF Series to accommodate a wide variety of tray types.
- Highest industry cooling capacity: Modern breeds generate more metabolic heat now than in the past – and detailed research to forecast future developments has enabled Pas Reform to calculate cooling capacities not only for today’s breeds, but also for their offspring in twenty years from now. SmartSetPro™ has the highest cooling capacity of any incubator in the industry, based on two double circular cooling coils per fan tower zone.
- Turning in line with airflow, set points per fan tower zone: To achieve homogeneous temperature distribution throughout the machine, SmartSetPro™ has a double fan blade per fan tower zone, to ensure that the mixing profile is optimised throughout the incubator. Incubator trolleys are individually turned by a pneumatic piston, in line with the airflow produced by the incubator’s fan tower. Fan blade design combined with accurate trolley positioning in the incubator achieves counter flow air movement in the cabinet, for superior temperature distribution in the entire incubator, whether it holds 4 or 24 trolleys.
- Optimised weight loss patterns through simultaneous humidity and CO2 control (Adaptive Metabolic Feedback™): In a single stage incubation environment, achieving the correct weight loss profile for each hatching egg is critical to producing maximum numbers of the best quality day old chicks. SmartSetPro™ incubators provide the active, simultaneous measurement and control of humidity and CO2 during incubation. Based on the Adaptive Metabolic Feedback™ (AMF™) principle developed by Pas Reform Academy, this ensures the accurate replication of predetermined breed or flock specific weight loss patterns.
