Adding steam to the production process for animal feeds improves the compressibility (an increase in the press capacity of 20% is no exception) and the condition of the laying mash, among other things. A steam dosing set inactivates micro-organisms while the sensory properties (including aroma, taste and texture) of the product mix are retained.
For the production of high-quality (dry) steam – the quality is determined by pressure and temperature – PTN supplies steam dosing sets, steam lines and steam injection systems on mixers, presses, expanders and compactors.
Characteristic of the injection systems is the volume-increasing drainage vessel after the reducing unit in which a steam flash, and thus superheated dry steam, is generated.
The compact systems are available with a capacity of 150 – 2.500 kg/hr, are easy to install and use relatively little energy.
