Capacity up to 153,600 d.o.c.
Comprising a trailer as well as boxes, the HatchTraveller 153600 is one of the highest-capacity chick transportation systems on the , enabling up to 30% more chicks per truckload than rival models. With space for up to 163,200 day-old chicks, the trailer is designed for larger poultry companies looking to maximise space and to reduce the number of the total fleet.
The system measures 13.5 metres (approx. 44 feet) in length and comprises eight fully automated MicroClimer sections each based HatchTech’s unique laminar airflow system. This unique technology delivers a consistent airflow to all chick baskets, ensuring consistent conditions throughout the trailer while maximising space.
Each HatchTraveller model is equipped with its six mechanical cooling systems on top of the trailer rather than open air vents, which means it does not depend on outside air for cooling. The result is an effective cooling effect for the chicks even in extreme climates, ensuring an optimal chick body temperature of 40oC (104oF) for all chicks, and uniform chick quality on arrival.
