Control Over Mortality Managment

Mortality management is critically important to your operation, your aggregators, and your ability to maintain biosecurity. Improving the process should be one of your top priorities.

But that’s hard to do when you’re feeling pressure to scale your operations, see a return on your equipment investments, fight off consolidation, and comply with an ever-changing set of regulations.

With other matters leaving little time free to focus on improving mortality management, it’s common for growers like you to employ the same approaches they have for years.

Still bin composting? That can take upwards of a month to complete. And you have to tend to the bin throughout that time. Each time you open it and add bulking material represents another opportunity for a contaminant to spread to your flock or the local water supply.

Think freezers are better? Freezing carcasses takes time and adds cost to your operations. And then you need to wait for a third party to come and remove them. This adds more time to the process. It also creates the potential for contaminants from other locations to be brought to your site, endangering your flock and the surrounding area.

The net result of these approaches? Risk—to your flock’s health, your financial future, and your aggregator contract.

So why are you composting or relying on others for help?

Find out what the Thermal Disposal system can do for you.

The Benefits Of Thermal Disposal

With AgriTech Thermal Disposal Systems, you’ll avoid the hassle of composting and the risk of third parties coming to your site. Instead, you’ll save time and money by taking mortality management into your own hands. 

All you need to do is load the machine and start the cycle. 

The carcasses will be heated and mixed to break down bones and feathers sterilizing the contents. The contents are dried to your desired level of dehydration, then transferred to the storage bin.

And what’s left? A sterile, organic, flour-like byproduct that’s perfect for use in compost or fertilizer.

That’s all it takes to transform the way you approach mortality management.

Thermal Disposal Systems

Use a sterile process that kills all viruses and bacteria in a matter of hours. That means you don’t have to keep expired birds on your property while you’re accepting new chicks. And you’ll stop contaminants from spreading to your flock, the soil, or local water supply. This way, you’ll stay on top of your biosecurity requirements, so you can protect your flock and your operation.

Start the cycle at the end of the day, and it’s done by the morning. No more waiting for nature to take its course, or for someone to remove carcasses from a freezer. No more emptying, cleaning, and refilling bins. Instead, you’ll save time, labor, and cost, so there’s more left over for other areas of your operation.

Just fill the machine, choose your desired level of dehydration, press a green button, and you’re good to go. The cycle runs independently, and the byproduct is removed automatically. There’s nothing complicated to learn. And no bulking agents, or vendor schedules to manage. You’ll cut one more thing off your list—without sacrificing biosecurity—so you have more time for the details that matter. 

Thermal Disposal

What makes the AgriTech Thermal Disposal System different?

Traditionally, growers have disposed of animal mortalities using incinerators, freezers, bin composters, and in-vessel composters. Each of these methods has significant drawbacks, including the risk of contagion, scavengers, odor, and cost of labor. Thermal Disposal revolutionizes deadstock disposal, using proprietary thermal sterilization technology to speed the composting process and destroy pathogens. No odor, no scavengers, and no more worries about what to do with your animal carcasses. Compared to in-vessel composting units, AgriTech Thermal Disposal System is:

  • less expensive to run and requires less labor
  • the only solution that is 100% bio-safe
  • 30 times more efficient than in-vessel composters
  • able to reduce waste by half, a reduction six times better than the leading competitor
  • a turn-key solution that’s ready-to-go as soon as it’s delivered
Does the AgriTech sterilizer produce an odor?

Our sterilizer produces no odor, only odorless steam.

How long does the process take from start to finish?

The AgriTech Thermal Disposal System can process up to 2000 pounds (2 tons) of animal mortalities in a matter of hours.

Can the AgriTech Thermal Disposal System be used year-round?

Unlike burial or composting, the AgriTech Thermal Disposal System operates in even the coldest temperatures. Being able to run year-round keeps growing operations cleaner and safer.
