Fortena® chain feeding system
Fortena chain feeding system for broiler breeders, automatic feeding for hens
Fortena® is an automatic chain feeding system for hens that lay fertile eggs. The Fortena chain feeding system is not a different version of the current systems on the market. The patented design of the chain, feed trough and corner wheels has been taken care of by Roxell's feeding experts. The result is an innovative chain feeding system that improves and speeds up the feed intake of the hens and reduces residual feed. Discover a few of these features on this page.
Durability and convenience from the breeder feeding expert
Features of the Fortena chain feeding system
Good and rapid feed intake
- CHAIN WITH LARGE OPEN LINKS: PATENTED DESIGN
this unique Roxell chain has a patented design with large open links that takes up 25 % less space. This results in less friction between the feed and the chain. This way the feed pellets remain intact and the hens also eat them more easily and faster. The result is that less feed residue is left behind.
with an easily accessible feed trough, the hens get to the feed more easily, which limits feed loss. Thanks to a rounded edge there is also less contact with the feed trough, which reduces feather loss.
Ease of use and maximum flexibility
this chain feeding system has 6 volume settings which allows you to use your own feeding regimes, ranging from the daily feed portion at one time or spread over several times. And always coupled with an equal and fast feed distribution.
- FLEXIBILITY IN MANAGEMENT
the poultry farmer gets flexibility in management:
- fixed or variable speed of feed distribution
- feeding circuit on winches or on legs, or a combination of both
- completely automate the feeding process with a iQon™ feed computer
- direct feed supply with day bins or indirectly via hoppers on the circuit
Extra durable, strong and silent
- MINIMAL FRICTION FOR CHAIN
we form the circuit with long sections of feed trough which means there are fewer coupling points that cause friction with the chain. This also ensures that the circuit runs silently. We provide connectors in polyamide that connect the feed troughs perfectly.
we drastically reduce the risk of chain links breaking by using extra strong links.
- LUBRICATION-FREE CORNER WHEELS
the corner wheels require little maintenance because we chose to build in ball bearings instead of the traditional plain bearings.
