Raw materials such as cereals (which represent around 50-60% of the final composition of the finished feed), oilseeds, seeds, minerals, additives, molasses or fats are used for the feed production.
Raw materials that arrive in the feed mill in the form of grains are discharged into pits.
Flours and additives arrive in bags of different sizes and liquids come in tankers that deposit the material in storage tanks.
At the time of unloading, the raw material must be checked to analyse its specific weight and humidity.
It is important to work with agile and reliable systems that combine a fast quality control prior to the inspection of the discharge.
This must be done on structural and mechanical elements to minimise the risks derived from accumulated debris and prevent contamination risks as well as safety of the installation.
