Petersime Introduces Compact Setter Tray

5 October 2012, at 9:59am

BELGIUM - Petersime introduces its brand new '60-egg tray', a compact and versatile setter tray for chicken eggs designed for manual egg collection at the farm and subsequent loading and transportation on setter trolleys.

Hatcheries that receive eggs from breeder farms with manual egg collection can now opt for Petersime’s new 60-egg tray instead of the standard 150-egg setter tray.

This tray is compact and lightweight (4kg when fully loaded), and can therefore be held in one hand while collecting eggs at the farm.


Once filled, the trays can be transported on pallets, on farm trolleys, and on setter trolleys. If they are loaded directly on setter trolleys, the need for an extra egg transfer at the hatchery is eliminated.

The 60-egg tray has a solid construction with reinforcements at the bottom for extra strength and stability on conveyor belts.

The trays are stackable for efficient transportation. Moreover, they are suitable for hatchery automation equipment and washing machines.

Like Petersime’s standard setter tray, the 60-egg tray is made of polypropylene and painted black for minimum reflection of light, which enables efficient candling.

The egg supports, arranged in a 10×6 matrix, are designed for ideal positioning of both small and large eggs. The shape of the tray ensures an adequate air flow around the entire surface of the egg shell in the setter.

The 60-egg tray is available as an option with S-line and Conventional incubators for chickens.
