The client

Under the flag of Trouw Nutrition a large number of companies operates in Europe with a strong market position in cattle fodder additives, premixes, services, minerals, fodder for young animals and specialties. Trouw Nutrition Benelux delivers a diverse product range that improves the health and productivity of beef, pork, poultry and horses.

The question

The premix animal feed is stored and distributed into the factory by using silos. In practice it turned out that there were old hatches between the silos and these caused a leakage of the products. Partly because of this, disruptions occurred in the process and storage, resulted in waiting times.

The solution!

The challenge was to be able to transport the products in factory without problems and so reduce the production times. To achieve this goal together with Trouw Nutrition we made and mounted special butterfly valves. Using butterfly valves instead of the hatches turned out to be a reliable way to prevent commixtures and reduce the process times. With more capacity from a well working machinery park as a result.

The world of production lines and then making ‘something from nothing’ fascinates us!
