Design of production lines dedicated to animal feed


The use of cooking-extrusion in animal feed has enabled many advances. The best cooking of raw materials promotes digestibility and thus good health and growth of animals. The gelatinization rates obtained (cooking of starches) are greater than 95%. Anti-nutritional factors (present for example in soybeans) are completely destroyed. The same applies to micro-organisms: when they leave an extruder they have all been destroyed.
An extruder can be combined with other machines such as a press for extracting soybean oil.

Cooking-extrusion lines allow the use of a wider range of ingredients than other processes.
The control of the density of the food allows to adapt to the feeding behaviour of the animals. And also meets the need to control the bagging.
The great latitude in the design of the shape of the dies allows manufacturers to create original products and to distinguish themselves from the competition.
Coating techniques are constantly evolving to increase inclusion rates or the addition of new ingredients.
