GERMANY - The bestselling Fluxx product family from Big Dutchman has a new member: Fluxx360.

Big Dutchman has introduced a new feed pan for broiler growing with a diameter of 360mm (14 inches). Compared to feed pans with a diameter of 330mm, it provides 14 per cent more feeding space, which means fewer pans are needed per house.

The improvements to ease cleaning are reinforced by the new, easy-to-use locking mechanism of pan and grille.

"To facilitate the cleaning process, the feed dish can be opened with one simple click. Another new feature are the four cleaning openings at the bottom of the pan. The openings ensure that residual liquids such as disinfection liquids, for example, completely drain off the pan even when it is closed," highlights product manager, Roland Busse.

The Fluxx360 pan is also available with a sliding shut-off which allows to completely close the pan. This way, poultry producers can flexibly decide, for example in case of day-old chicks, how many pans they want to use during the rearing phase.

In addition to these new features, the new Fluxx360 includes all technical details which already made the other pans of the Fluxx product family into bestsellers. Amongst others, this includes the patented Spin-n-Lock-technology: eight different feed levels may be adjusted singlehandedly simply by lifting and rotating the pans.

Another well-proven Fluxx feature, which has also been integrated in the Fluxx360 pan, is the centrally operable 360 degree feed flooding mechanism. It ensures an especially high feed level during the first couple of days when the pans still stand on the floor, after this phase the pan lines are lifted based on the age and size of the birds thus reducing the feed level.
