ANDRITZ Feed & Biofuel experts are looking forward to welcoming visitors at Victam Asia 2022 (Booth 1910), where three brand new innovations for the aqua and animal feed markets will be presented: the 3-Roll Assembly Upgrade for the Paladin 2000, Micro Feed System, and Metris Vibe. With the feed market in Asia flourishing, the ability to provide plant solutions capable of delivering against ever-increasing demand is critical, particularly in light of population growth and rising prosperity. Higher living standards are creating a need for higher quality proteins, while increased wealth is also driving the pet food sector forward. Working with an experienced partner allows feed producers to operate effectively throughout the lifecycle of the equipment, maximising capacity and contributing to a robust bottom line.

“At ANDRITZ we are focused on optimising processes and innovative developments that will enable customers to achieve the safest, most cost-effective production, with minimal waste and energy usage,” said Stefan de Roo, Global MarCom Manager at Feed & Biofuel. “We are here to support our customers in Asia for all of their plant solutions requirements—whether for the feed, pet food or biomass industries—based on their exact specifications at the lowest possible total cost of ownership. Our experts will be welcoming people to the booth in person, to listen to their challenges and to demonstrate that, with the industry’s most trusted services, we are there for our customers at all times.”

For animal feed producers, ANDRITZ will introduce its 3-Roll Assembly Upgrade for the Paladin 2000, an automatic roller adjustment system that provides adjustable spacing between the die and the rolls to enable producers to set the perfect distance for different recipes in one pellet mill. Average distance measurements for multiple recipes will be a thing of the past, while pellet quality, capacity and power utilisation will all improve.

Next, the AFTaN award-winning Micro Feed System, a dedicated extruder upgrade system designed for aqua feed that is less than 2 mm in size, will be on display. The system can increase capacity by up to 40% when compared to running microfeed at reduced speeds on standard extrusion lines, and represents a major breakthrough in the industry. The system will be mounted on an extruder that also features a dedicated venting unit. This unit delivers additional flexibility in managing a wider variety of raw materials in the production of sinking aquatic feed, leading to greater accuracy and control through real-time adjustments, higher quality and yield.

Finally, Metris Vibe, an integrated solution for condition monitoring, will be presented to the feed industry at the show. Metris Vibe is a wireless vibration and temperature sensor that can monitor the health status of mechanical equipment regardless of manufacturer. Durable and wireless, the sensors work in all rough environments and deliver lower operational costs through reduced maintenance due to its predictive capabilities, increased uptime, higher production reliability and improved safety.

In addition, ANDRITZ Feed & Biofuel experts will deliver complementary presentations on its three innovations across the three days, giving more technical detail and covering the many benefits they will offer. Michel Bauer Pereira, Global Manager at Extrusion, will present an overview of efficient use of energy in the extrusion process on the 7th of September at “Aquafeed Horizons – Towards Sustainable Aqua Feed,” followed by a presentation on the Andritz Microfeed System on the 8th of September at the AFTaN Awards Conference. At Build my Feed Mill on the 9th of September, Faisal Baig, Vice President at Aftermarket, will provide an in-depth look at Metris Vibe, while Anders Lydom, Product Manager at Animal Feed, will present further details on the 3-Roll Automatic Roller Adjustment.
