Manufacturing Equipment for Animal Nutrition Products

Ensuring each bowlful of food is correctly balanced is vital & doing so efficiently is the route to success.

Your Challenges

Ensuring dispersion of micro and minor ingredients is essential in providing a quality product every time.

Cross-contamination of ingredients is a constant risk with traditional fixed mixer production systems.

De-mixing of blends on transfer to packing results in scrapped batches & increased costs of manufacturing.

Our Experience

IBC tumble-blending is proven to increase the range and quality of pre-mixes that our customers can offer, whilst retaining their high quality assurance standards.

A well designed, agile, Lean system means our customers can easily switch recipes in response to demand.


How we can help

Our stainless steel IBCs are hygienically designed for ease of cleaning and safe ingredient handling.

The unique Cone Valve within each IBC ensures full discharge of product without de-mixing. 

The Cone Valve helps even the stickiest of products to flow effectively and under control.

Our Approach

Our IBC system remains closed at all times, so no product dust is released, which reduces housekeeping requirements and mitigates the risk of cross-contamination.

Our proficiency in the Pharmaceutical market helps us to understand the needs of animal nutrition manufacturers.
