Dosing System for Animal Feed and Pet Food
Accurate dosing of feed additives is the first step to achieving the required feed specification. Extra care should be taken when dosing liquids, as inaccuracy may cause problems in the mixer.
Dosing accuracy has become an important topic because of the need to comply with today’s high quality standards in feed production. Dosing influences the homogeneity of the mix, which in turn determines the quality parameters of the feed.
Feed additives can be added during processing in dry or liquid form. Liquid addition always causes micro-agglomeration or clustering by binding small particles to larger particles.
TiERMAX provides a full range of solutions to the pet food industries for the metering and highly accurate feeding of pet food and fish food ingredients into mixers and extruders, such as single screw feeders and twin screw feeders (both volumetric and loss-in-weight), liquid loss-in-weight feeders, and weigh belt feeders.
Our weighing systems can weigh both liquid and solid raw materials, as well as micro- and macro-ingredients.
