A reliable screw press moves the manure to the manure store next to the poultry house. A screw press is also suitable for moving the manure horizontally in a barn system. A screw press works efficiently even if it were located lower than the manure store. A specific protective kit was developed to improve the safety of using the press with the purpose of preventing anything from falling on top of the press. Behind the safety package’s door that can be locked, there is a limit switch that cuts the power to the motor automatically when the door is opened. There is also an emergency-stop cable located further in the safety package.
Manure can be removed from an enriched cage housing system also through a reliable belt conveyor. Several conveyor belts can be installed crosswise and one after another or a conveyor lifted at a 40-degree angle thus freeing space below for walking. Automatic conveyor belt tensioning enables the every-day use of the conveyor belt without maintenance. Conveyor has a limited number of components and thus, the accumulation of dirt is small.
