Bottom line: Farmers and graders must produce more quality eggs.

Industry average of
rejected eggs is 1.95%

From point of lay to packaging, rejected eggs due to shell damage are a pain no matter what your operation. Not only do they represent loss of revenue, but also wasted resources. Our CracklessEgg system has been proven to reduce rejected eggs due to shell damage by up to 50%. Calculating possible savings is easy, and the benefit of knowing if damage is caused by an aging flock or by the handling line itself is powerful knowledge. It has never been easier to isolate weak points and take data-driven corrective measures before critical problems occur.

is a costly issue

With modern health and safety protocol, coupled with strict bio-security measures, the egg production industry is invested in protecting its product and customers. However, even micro-fractures invisible to the naked eye represent a high risk of egg contamination. From contact to poultry litter to all sorts of airborne virus, no bio-security measure can completely eliminate vulnerability. Using the CracklessEgg to optimize the mechanical egg handling process is as much an issue of optimizing bio security as optimizing production. Discover and resolve issues in real time.

Improper calibration must be identified before egg shell failure

Collapsed egg shells and their membranes not only makes a mess on the handling line, they open up the possibility of contaminating related equipment and other eggs. Cleaning up is downtime, and using third party line audits and data loggers are costly. By using precise in-line sensors such as the CracklessEgg to identify and measure points of impact and levels of impact you can expose potential problems before they happen. Use CracklessEgg to ensure the proper calibration of set-points and avoid vulnerabilities.

“Existing candling machines cannot identify the micro-cracks, but the recorded multiple low level impacts highlight this probability, and this is confirmed when hatching eggs show ‘mid and late deads’ during the incubation process. The micro-cracks allow bacteria to enter and attack the chick embryo. By using the CracklessEgg and reducing egg contamination, the need for antibiotics can be eliminated.”
