Aug 3, 2017 — Germany-based laboratory and instrumentation company, Fritsch, is introducing a whole range of new milling and sizing products at the powder and bulk solids show, Powtech 2017. These include laboratory mills, sieve analysis, particle sizing and sample dividing, feeding and cleaning.
Jul 26, 2017 — Poeth has designed its new AirConveyor specifically for companies that want to transport powders, pellets and granulates cost-effectively and efficiently. The system offers companies 75% less maintenance costs after approx. 3 years operating time and consumes 40% less energy. The air-supported conveying system is suitable for damage-free transportation of bulk goods over short or extremely long distances. The AirConveyor generates low noise emissions and is dust-tight. As a result, the new conveying system also has a minimum impact on the environment.
Apr 13, 2017 — Dinnissen has broadened the deployability of its mixers, thanks to a mix of innovations. The mixers have been further improved in several areas, and, moreover, they explicitly consider the role of the mixer in the overall operation. That is why the validation of mixing processes have now been added to their service.
Mar 16, 2017 — The new Z-Conveyor by Poeth was specially developed for the hygienic transport of light, fine powders in the vertical, diagonal or horizontal direction. The innovative transport system consists of plastic flights that move forward on a chain within an enclosed trough and at the unloading point “fall” gently out of the transport system.
Jan 12, 2017 — Cooperation between Van Beek Schroeftransport and weighing specialist Penko Engineering has resulted in real time monitoring of how much product a screw is transporting. Users can, for example, decide how many grams of a particular material per minute may be supplied to the process. During operation, users can see the material speed (m/s), number of kg/s, how many kg have already been transported and the control of the flow regulation from 0 to 100 %.
Nov 17, 2016 — Prosol’s has introduced a new product for aquaculture species. Aqua-MOD™ is a source of nucleotides, nucleosides, oligo nucleotides, ribonucleic acids fragments, peptides, aminoacids and minerals. These nutrients represent a pool of active and beneficial ingredients for aquatic animals. Their synergic effect can enhance immune system response, growth performance and disease resistance.
Oct 26, 2016 — Cargill has announced the development of iQuatic ™, a shrimp feed produced exclusively for automated feeders using acoustic technology. iQuatic ™ feed will be available in Central and South America over the next few months. Through this acoustic technology, the automatic feed dispensers use microphones to detect when shrimp are eating, enabling the sytem to deliver more precise amounts of food when shrimp are hungry. iQuatic ™ feed is designed and formulated with ingredients that help ensure that shrimp take in all the nutrients available in a pellet.
Oct 26, 2016 — EWOS CLEAR for RAS is a new salmon feed that takes into account many different factors behind optimum RAS operations. It is the result of extensive research at the Cargill Innovation Center (CIC) Norway, and commercial trials at one of the largest RAS facilities in Norway. During design of the feed, the focus was threefold: macronutrient balance (digestible protein & digestible energy); digestibility of the raw materials; and physical quality of the feed.
Aug 25, 2016 — To further minimize explosion risk in the feed industry, Van Aarsen has introduced an innovative feeding device with an integrated heavy parts separator (also known as a “stone catcher”) for its GD hammer mill.
