The feed industry is a familiar business sector for Hosokawa Micron as we have supported this sector for many decades, manufacturing size reduction, classification, agglomeration, mixing and compacting equipment for feed applications. Feed manufacturing standards are rapidly shifting toward food manufacturing standards.
Fodder compositions are constantly refined and improved to ensure balanced and performance-based nutrition for livestock. Animal feed ingredients such as soya, peas, corn, minerals, vitamins, milk minerals, and their constituents must be easy to process to achieve this.
When selecting and designing feed processing equipment, it is important to consider product quality, safety, process reliability, and low operational costs. Smart equipment design and first-rate testing facilities can assist you in meeting tomorrow’s global feed processing demands.
Milling and Classifying
Fodder compositions are constantly refined and improved to ensure balanced and performance-based nutrition for livestock. Animal feed ingredients such as soya, peas, corn, minerals, vitamins, milk minerals, and their constituents must be easy to process to achieve this. Hosokawa’s high-tech systems, which include granulators, fine impact and classifier mills, and high-performance classifiers, enable the use of these ingredients in a wide range of combinations. Furthermore, the protein shifting process developed specifically for pulses and grains allows for the enrichment of vegetable protein from pulses through grinding and classification.
The Vitomix ribbon screw mixer is ideal for fast, accurate mixing of medium-sized batches of feed additives with low energy input. In one compact machine, it combines gentle mixing and mid to low shear. Mixing times of 1 to 3 minutes are possible.
The Vitomix ribbon screw mixer accurately mixes very small amounts of powder concentrates into a mixture of bulk materials with varying bulk density and particle properties. Aside from high accuracy, the Vitomix is available in a variety of capacities, with batch sizes ranging from 1 to 4 tonnes.
Powders, particles and solids are processed to GMP and ISO 9001:2015 standards for wide-ranging manufacturing industries, from pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, fine chemicals, additive manufacturing and advanced materials, to food and beverages, cosmetics and personal care.
