Perfect Fit
1

Intake and cleaning

The cleaning of raw materials ensures a problem-free total process and a high-quality semi-finished or end product.

2

Dosing and weighing

The perfect end product and the most economical production method are dependent on the right dosage. Precise harmonization of the components demands a high level of dosing and weighing accuracy.

3

Grinding

Grinding or particle-size reduction is a major function of feed manufacturing, enhancing the mixing process and ensuring the desired pellet quality.

4

Mixing

In the mixers a wide range of raw materials, additives and liquids are mixed into a homogeneous animal feed mixture to enable you to produce perfect compound feed.

5

Conditioning

The meal is heat treated by the addition of steam in the conditioner before entering the pellet mill. The variables moisture, temperature and time determine the optimal nutritional quality as well as the pellet quality.

6

Pelleting

In the pellet mill. the hot meal is transformed into feed pellets. Animal feed pellets can be produced in several diameters and hardness’s.

7

Cooling

The pellets will be cooled in a counter flow cooler.

8

Coating

Depending on the product, post pellet liquid addition can be applied.

9

Loading

The finished products are prepared for shipment whether this is in bulk or bags

10

Capacity

A feed mill that produces the required capacity is vital to maximize your investment. We offer the certainty of an investment that provides the capacity that is foreseen in your plan.

11

Health, Safety and the Environment (HSE)

The health and safety of your employees as well as the protection of the environment in the communities in which we live and work are important. We have experience in building feed mills with limited noise emission, dust emission and easy and safe working circumstances.

12

Energy efficiency

In these times of rising energy prices, shortage of resources, emissions targets and changing legislation, the compound feed industry is challenged with limiting energy consumption.

13

Feed safety

Feed safety and quality are key issues for all companies handling feed and can have serious consequences when control is lost. A systematic approach is required for reducing risk and improving quality.

14

Continuity

The certainty to deliver timely to your customers and livestock is key for a healthy growth and the quality of the food products that they supply. With our focus on limiting maintenance and preventing downtime the livestock will always have the feed they need, when they need it.

15

Total cost of ownership

The acquisition costs of a machine are just half the truth. The operating costs determine the real investment in your machine.

16

Flexibility

The feed should be perfectly adapted to the specific type of livestock, their age and purpose. And the farmer is the specialist in creating those optimal circumstances for the correct and healthy development of his livestock. No wonder that a differentiation in recipes is more and more required. We can help you to create just the perfect production process with optimal flexibility.

Crumblers

Crumbling

During crumbling pellets are reduced to crumbs. The size of the crumbs is adapted to the need of the animal and the feeding system.

Sieves

Sieving

Sieving may take place at the beginning of the process and after pelleting and crumbling:
Sieving of raw materials is intended to separate sizes. Smaller sizes do not need to be grinded. By sieving the raw materials first the grinding process is optimized and energy can be saved.
By sieving pellets and crumbles fines are sorted out, improving the quality of the end product. The fines itself are returned into the process preventing waste of raw materials.

Coating

Coating

Depending on the product, post pellet liquid addition can be applied.

Loading

Loading

Transport

Transport

Low-contamination, horizontal or vertical transportation of semi-finished or finished products within the factory.

Storage

Storage

For an optimal capacity batches are stored in bins and bunkers before and after the main machines

Automation

Process Automation

To achieve maximum performance of your feed mill, feed mill automation helps you to control and optimise the complete production process.
