Manual Candling Table

Setter Tray Dispenser

For identifying clear or infertile eggs in a full setter tray


Large capacity candling table illuminates a full setter tray of eggs, with a halogen light assembly underneath to visually identify clear or infertile eggs. Ideal for candling smaller batches of eggs or for analyzing sample trays from larger batches. Easy to clean stainless steel construction, mounted on swivel castor wheels for easy manoeuvrability. When equipped with a (roller) conveyor, trays can be automatically transported for optimal working conditions.

How it works

  • In the cover of the candling table, 126, 150 or 162 holes (depending on tray type) correspond to the centre of the eggs on the setter tray
  • After positioning the setter tray, the cover is lifted by a handle which positions the eggs over the holes in the table
  • Eggs without embryonic development allow more light to pass through and are therefore easily identified for manual removal
  • The setter tray without infertile eggs can then continue either via a transfer system to hatcher baskets, or be returned to the setter when candling is carried out prior to day 18
