Grinding system for pet food manufacturer inaugurated in Johannesburg

Categoría: Products & Machines

To expand their feed production capacity in the spring of 2019, a new GDL 25 and crossyoke plansifter was commissioned at AFGRI Animal Feeds near Johannesburg. With a production capacity of around 1 million tonnes a year, AFGRI Animal Feeds is one of South Africa’s leading animal feed manufacturers. The products are manufactured with care, on the basis of innovative technologies, research and processes. The aim is to ensure optimum feed quality.

Ultramodern grinding system

With a production capacity of around 1 million tonnes a year, AFGRI Animal Feeds is one of South Africa’s leading animal feed manufacturers. The products are manufactured with care, on the basis of innovative technologies, research and processes. The aim is to ensure optimum feed quality. It is only when they have good, nourishing feed that animals yield their best results and remain healthy.

To expand their feed production capacity in the spring of 2019, a new GDL 25 and crossyoke plansifter was commissioned at AFGRI Animal Feeds near Johannesburg. The GDL 25 is a large chamber mill which can be used both for coarse grinding in mixed feed production and fine grinding for pet food and aquafeed. The crossyoke plansifter is suitable for a wide range of applications. The patented sieve cleaner ensures flexibility of use. The modern design and compact dimensions enable quick assembly and top performance.

Our special thanks go to the on-site team, particularly for their hospitality and energetic support. If you have any questions about the project, please feel free to write an email to Yannick Wangelin at: y.wangelin@tietjen-original.com Impressions of the assembly and commissioning

Timber industry

The full decarbonization of our energy supply to meet the 2030 climate targets requires diversification of energy sources while maintaining or improving security of supply. Sustainable wood energy is the only renewable, on-demand, baseload partner technology of photovoltaics and wind energy at power plant scale. Wood pellet fuel is already available today, is in sufficient supply in the long term through a global market, and can thus secure our energy supply and grid stability for tomorrow.

The amount of plastic waste is increasing from year to year. Biodegradable packaging is therefore becoming increasingly important, and not only in the food industry. Yet there are already many sustainable packaging alternatives – such as bio-film made from macroalgae. Since this process is very time-consuming and expensive, Ludwig Schmidtchen, a doctoral student, has developed a cheaper and faster manufacturing process for this film. He received help from Tietjen.
