Apr 5, 2018 — Dr. Eckel Animal Nutrition released the new product AntaOx Aqua, a pure botanical feed additive with a unique ingredient combination and reliable source of flavonoid molecules. AntaOx Aqua is the first all-natural flavonoid-based feed additive whose effectiveness has been proven scientifically in shrimp trials. Several studies have demonstrated its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effect.
Apr 5, 2018 — The new Geelen Countrflow Electrical Dryer recovers energy and water from the dryer exhaust and uses an electrical heatpump to boost back up the temperature of the drying air. The results are a net reduction of energy consumption for drying of up to 65%, recovery of water of up to 65%, significant reduction of exhaust odor, and significant reduction in carbon footprint.
Dec 14, 2017 — Van Beek has developed the vertical silo mixer for mixing and homogenizing free flowing, dry substances of different sizes and with different bulk densities. Using a silo as a mixing vessel gives a large mixing capacity and no residual product is left behind from a previous batch. The maximum diameter of the silo is 3.5 meters with a maximum capacity of 60-70 m3/hour.
Dec 7, 2017 — Early in 2018, Geelen Counterflow will introduce its new generation of Electrical Dryers to the market. Following four years of development, the first Electrical Dryer for 10-12 tph extruded petfood will be built and delivered in 2018. Pilot line testing in 2016 showed that energy efficiency can be improved by up to 65%, to well below 1000 kJ per kg of evaporated water, compared to the typical 2700 kJ/kg for a counterflow dryer running on natural gas or steam. Official market launch of the Electrical Dryer will be during Victam Asia 2018
Nov 24, 2017 — Van Aarsen International has released specialized Small, Micro, and Precision Ingredient Dosing systems to optimize the fine dosing process.
