In the new insect farming industry publication Beta Buzz, Kusters explains the differences between manual and automated sieving of insects (larvae) from frass, and we introduce our alternative: the Rotoshifter.

The new, automated insects (larvae) harvesting technology

Royal Dutch Kusters Engineering contributed to the first-ever publication of Beta Buzz by providing an article on the differences between manual and automated sieving of Black Soldier Fly Larvae (BSFL). One of the automated 'sieving' alternatives is the Royal Dutch Kusters Rotoshifter.

The Rotoshifter is a new, automated harvesting technology that separates BSFL from frass using air- and rotational forces and several drum screens simultaneously with an efficiency of up to 99,9% clean insects (larvae).
