July 30, 2009 – With traditional manure belts it’s not easy to clean under the belts. Especially in houses where cleanliness is very important, as in broiler breeder and rearing houses.
In order to also clean these houses easily, Jansen Poultry Equipment has developed the SMB+ (single manure belt system) The manure belt of the SMB+ system can be rolled up at one end which is not possible with traditional manure belts. Once the manure belt has been rolled up it is very easy to clean the surface which was previously hidden by the manure belt.
How does the SMB+ system work?
A single manure belt is installed under your slatted floor and can be rolled around a shaft which is powered by an electric motor. In this way you can clean the SMB+ belt once or twice a week as required.
At the end of each production cycle the manure from the scratch area can be scooped on to the running manure belt. After removal of all the manure, the house can be wet cleaned. Keep the manure belt in the rolled up position which makes it possible to easily and quickly clean the surface under the nest and the surface previously hidden by the SMB+ belt.
- Improved cleanliness
- Lower health risks
- Better bird quality
- Wet cleaning becomes very simple
- Manure from the scratch area can be placed on to the SMB+ belt.
