Egg Washing Machines

The correct washing of hatching eggs in an egg washer has several significant advantages in comparison to conventional washing with brushes or sponges, which destroy the natural protective coat of eggs and transfers germs from one egg to the other. This can cause severe preventable losses. Egg washing machine guarantees reliable necessary cleaning and disinfection without damaging or destroying the cuticula. Damages will not even be detectible under a microscope. With the wide range of egg washing machines and sanitizers, all types of eggs and capacities from a few hundred to over a million eggs a day can be washed and sanitized. The egg washing machines can also be customized to the consumer´s specific needs.
