Production of compound feed of “TOPKORM” TM is a high-tech process that involves the selection of quality raw materials, their dosing, mixing, grinding, granulation and direct packaging. Production of premium feed “TOPKORM” TM is carried out on advanced, modern Dutch equipment VanAarsen.
The laboratory of compound feed factory, having at its disposal modern diagnostic equipment, carries out the selection and determines the quality and safety indices of grain, protein and vitamin-mineral raw materials components. After confirming the declared indicators and their compliance with the high internal quality indices of the batch of raw materials come to the plant. All transport that goes to the plant undergoes the necessary treatment with disinfectant solutions.
Storage of raw materials by type is carried out in warehouses or elevators of different capacity.
Production process control is fully computerized with special software, control is performed by operator. After receiving the recipe of mixed feeders, the responsible person sets the necessary parameters of production: supply of raw components of the required quantity, preparation and passage of them through the production routes (noria).
After weighing from storage bins, grain and protein raw materials are alternately fed into hammer crusher HM for grinding. This operation is mega-important because, despite the granulated final product, the minimum particle size of the grain components for pigs should be 400 μm, the broilers 600 μm, and the laying hens 800 μm. This indicator is responsible for the health of the gastrointestinal tract of animals and birds.
The necessary dry raw materials and liquid components are fed through hoppers to the batch mixer. The two-shaft blade mixer provides homogeneous mixing of components of different sizes for a given time, so each feed granule will contain all the dosed feed particles.
After mixing the raw materials enter the hopper of the granulation line.
The mixed feed components through the metering screw enter the conditioner where high temperature and pressure create positive conditions for gelatinization of the starch and its partial cleavage to dextrin and sugars. This additional treatment improves the strength of the granule, performs temperature decontamination, and provides high availability of nutrients in the gastrointestinal tract of animals or poultry.
The heated mixed feed mixture is introduced into a granulator with a ring matrix, which is changed in advance. The diameter of the holes corresponds to the species and age of the animals or poultry.
The granulated compound feed gets to the spraying line of additional components, which are sensitive to high temperature (enzymes, oils), and then to the cooler, which positively acts on strength of PDI granules, fluidity, protection against spoilage and minimizes chemical and biochemical reactions, then to the separator, where the dust fraction and hopper of the finished product are separated.
Through the transport routes, the granulated feed enters the packaging shop, where the robotic equipment provides weighing, filling in bags, marking, sewing, palletizing and packaging.
