Treating and drying hen droppings

The removal of poultry manure is carried out using polypropylene belts as often as every 3 to 7 days, depending on the length of the shed. Up to now the poultry manure was transported to the outside where it was collected on trucks. The percentage humidity of the manure varied between 80% and 85%.

ZUCAMI has developed a treatment system that dries 85% of the manure and eliminates odours, insects and gases derived from the ammonia: the Seconov system.

Once removed, the manoeuvre is transported to the upper part of the Seconov where a mechanical rake spreads it out, forming a fine layer. Via a tunnel that connects with the shed and with the aid of powerful ventilators, the system uses the heat generated by the birds themselves to dry the layer of manure. Once dry, it is allowed to fall to a lower level of the tunnel from where, after another drying process, it is transferred to the warehouse. With this system, the poultry farmer can conserve the manoeuvre until it is commercialized.
