Quality, cost and safety
The pet food, animal feed and aqua feed industry are constantly changing. Innovations, legislation and developments like traceability require flexible, hygienic and sustainable production methods.
TBMA offers a wide range of suitable components and systems as well as the expertise to serve you in these industries. Whether it concerns pneumatic conveying or the dosing of premixes. We are happy to help you with an efficient and safe solution, focused on the continuity of your production process.
Rotary valves and diverter valves
Wearing raw materials such as minerals in premixes are often used in the production of pet food or animal feed. This requires wear-resistant components, for example rotary valves with a 4C coating. Also, hygienic applications occur in pet food production more often. For these applications valves made of stainless steel or with a 3C coating are used.
The TBMA H-series rotary valves are suitable for dosing powders and granules, absorbing differential pressure and as protective system up to 10 bar for products in dust class St1 and St2.
DTD plug diverters and RD flap diverters are both very suitable for diverting or converging product flow in the pet food and animal feed industry.
With TBMA big-bag filling and weighing systems big-bags are filled suspended, and optionally vibrated and weighed, regardless the type of bag. This ensures a stable, straight-filled bag that is easy to stack.
Due to the efficient filling and accurate weighing, our systems are used successfully in various types of animal feed installations worldwide. Product loss, contamination and dust formation during filling are thus prevented, which is certainly of great importance for finer powders.
Our modular big-bag filling systems are available for processing bags with a filled weight of 500 up to 1.600 kg. Depending on the product supply and system layout, a filling capacity of 20 bags per hour can be achieved.
TBMA big-bag unloading systems are specifically designed for trouble-free unloading of various products from different types of FIBCs. The liner clamping and clamping mechanism prevents dust, product loss and contamination.
The systems are suitable for processing single or multi-trip bags, with or without a plastic inner bag. A number of unique options have also been designed for the safe and hygienic release of food and pharmaceutical products.
The TBMA range is based on a clever and very flexible modular concept in which the basic models can be expanded with various options.
Many ingredients used in the animal feed industry, such as starch, grain and minerals, are transported and supplied as bagged goods. The Galahad automatic bag emptying machine has been TBMA's optimum bulk transfer solution for cutting and emptying various types of bags from 25 up to 80 kg for more than four decades. The system is supplied as a semi-automatic or optionally fully automatic with a robot to place the bags on the conveyor belt.
The Galahad ensures continuous dust-free and hygienic emptying of the bags with a residual value between 0,01% and 0,05%. The bags are opened with one clean cut at which there is no contact between the outside of the bag and the product.
For smaller quantities, we supply various dust-proof bag dumping cabinets.
When it comes to pneumatic conveying in the pet food and animal feed industry, we offer you both the components and systems as well as the knowledge and experience to select the best solution for you.
We engineer and supply reliable and sustainable systems for dense phase and dilute phase applications. In the process we take into account the vulnerability, abrasiveness or segregation sensitivity of your products. When desired, we can deliver the system including control system.
Blending and homogenising
The VRM vertical blender by TBMA is very suitable for mixing larger batches of product and is often used for, for example, homogenising segregated batches.
The combination of a high degree of mixing and complete release makes the Conical Spiral Batch mixer very suitable for mixing for example minerals, proteins and vitamins.
We work closely with renowned partners for the delivery of silos, blenders, tanks and hoppers designed by TBMA. This allows us to supply a full range of storage units in standard, vacuum or pressure applications and for the storage of various products. The silos etc are available in various materials and can be equipped with various peripheral equipment, such as level switches, valves, filters, explosion pannels, etc.
Loading chutes are used for the dust-free loading of bulk goods in e.g. trucks. The Moduflex program with loading chutes has been completing our own product range for more than 20 years. This allows us to offer a total package of components and systems for the animal feed industry.
