IFF-Practical Course "Pelleting of compound feed"
In the EU, approx. 75 % of the industrially produced compound feed is pelleted. Highest demands are put on quality. An essential evaluation criterion for the pellet quality is the abrasion stability. A multitude of influencing factors must be paid attention to, like e. g. physical and chemical properties of the feed formulation, steam quality, conditioning, operating parameters of pellet mills, cooling, as well as stability of thermo-sensitive additives.
Technical knowledge on pelleting will be given both in lectures and in practical exercises at the pilot plant of the institute. In practical tests, different measuring and test methods will be introduced. The participants will be enabled to improve the handling and control of the pelleting process in daily practice with simple means.
