Eggs that come directly from chicken houses can be transferred to the egg grader by means of an “Accumulator”. This system ensures the highest possible filling ratio of the machine combined with the most gentle egg handling possible in this function. Batches of eggs coming from different houses can be counted, administrated and in Omnia even graded separately if required. Also combi-machines with both loaders and accumulators are possible. The accumulator area is often used as a pre-candling area as well. For this purpose, optional pre-candling buttons can be mounted here so that eggs that are manually removed can be counted in the exact right batch.
