With the implementation of the ISO 12099 standard for near-infrared spectroscopy (NIR), updated and expanded calibrations for feed raw materials and feeds, along with new functionalities in AMINONIR® Portable, Evonik now offers its customers in the feed industry an even more comprehensive service.
Many variables affect the pellet quality. We should distinguish between parameters originating from the ingredients and formulation, and process and technology related factors. Technology plays a vital role, as it is directly linked to a feed miller’s objective of producing pellets that are as hard as required and maintain a high and constant throughput while keeping energy costs at the lowest level possible.
Pellet quality is not only made in the pellet mill. The saying “the chain is as strong as the weakest link” applies also here. Every process step adds to the achieved pellet quality. The finer the particle size after grinding the better the pellet quality, the higher the capacity and the lower the energy consumption at the pellet mill.
The pelleted feed manufacturing process has undergone a significant evolution in recent decades due to the demand for higher standards of physical quality, nutritional value and microbiological hygiene, as well as greater flexibility in the incorporation of new and varied raw materials. The digital age in feed industry is becoming increasingly important, KPI measurement and monitoring can be done in real time.
The feed processing market is expected to witness significant growth by 2027, driven by massive growth in feed ingredients, new product launches, and the adoption of new processing technologies. Bühler Group and TAM Systems are poised to support this forecast with a new Reseller Partnership.
Bühler, one of the first brands to come to mind when it comes to food and feed technologies, joined forces with Premier Tech, a leading company in packaging technologies, in 2019. The partnership of the two leaders bore first fruit in the technology development phase in March: CHRONOS OML-1060.
Grain began being cultivated in the Neolithic, and the Sumerians became the first society to store it by ca. 4000 B.C. Grain represents the most important nutritional element, both for humans and animals. Its storage is especially important to guarantee food safety, but also for price stability.
TOMRA Food offers a safe and fault-free production by optical sorting technologies for pet food producers.
Premier Tech and Bühler strategic partnership announces to launch of the first packaging equipment.
Swiss Bühler Group and Balaguer Rolls from Spain sign collaboration agreement for design and supply of high-quality SmartRolls and services for grain processing.
