Installations for the feed industry

by Cimbria, Denmark

Cimbria is one of the world’s leading suppliers of high quality bulk handling equipment primarily within grain and seeds, but also within other industries such as animal feed, foodstuff, biomass and a large variety of industrial products.

The company holds an in-depth knowledge within the design and construction of projects and special installations for storage and conveying bulk cargos. The vast experience is constantly being put to use in developing new solutions which meet the demands of authorities and users for functionality, quality and environmentally friendly operation.
  


The solutions from Cimbria are always individual solutions developed in close co-operation with the clients. Their needs and demands define the overall parameters and Cimbria make the ends come together in simple, practical and operational solutions based on in-depth experience with the business area.

Mysen Kornsilo and Moelle
Previously, Cimbria commenced a pilot project with Mysen Kornsilo og Moelle, the aim of which was to find a solution for the future expansion of their animal feed production, whilst at the same time ensuring that production could continue uninterrupted during a period of construction and that the first step, which involved new finished goods silos, could be taken.

Following further preparatory work and a number of discussions, a solution with two main elements was found.

The first part of the solution was a new production line for animal feed, built in a “tower” with the mixer at the top and the cooler at the bottom, such that it was only the ground raw materials that needed to be lifted before the finished pellets were produced.

Secondly, a new finished goods silo providing efficient loading of trucks without the trucks having to be moved. The solution in the last-mentioned case is a battery of silos located above a weighbridge on which the trucks stop, while underneath the silos a mobile discharging unit ensures rapid and dust-free loading of the trucks.

The new finished goods facility has been built and was commissioned in summer 2017. An important detail for Mysen was to ensure that the pellets were as far as possible dust-free, and as such a screen is mounted on the top of the silo battery. This screen is located facing the future production tower, such that the residue that has been filtered out is returned directly to production.

The total capacity of the silo is 940 m3. The unloading conveyors have a capacity of approximately 120 tonnes per hour, and the loading chutes are equipped with powerful extraction in order to prevent dust emission.

Following completion of the facility, a new weigher and dosing unit have been installed such that the previous finished goods silos are now used as raw material and weighing silos in the factory, which means that the raw material side has also been upgraded at the same time.

Dinnissen process technology – Value innovators by nature

On June 20 2018, Milling and Grain had the pleasure of meeting with Dinnissen Process Technology at VIV Europe 2018, stand 08, C010.

Speaking to Mr Perry Konings, Commercial Manager at Dinnissen Process Technology based in Sevenum, the Netherlands, a modest but intensely impressive redesign of the company’s brand was discussed.
 

“Finding solutions for every project is part of our DNA,” the company explains. “From tailor made components to machines and total concepts: our extensive experience over 70 years makes us a global player in process technology in the world of food, pet food, feed and chemicals.”

“We provide our customers with a variety of solutions. These range from stand-alone machines to turnkey systems. From pre-engineering to project management and from design through to assembly and start-up. Our extensive international network means that we can deliver our solutions all around the world.”

Dinnissen was founded in 1948 as a machine specialist for the compound feed industry in Svenum, the Netherlands. Rapid regional growth and developments in the milling sector have continuously challenged Dinnissen to innovate and evolve, resulting in Dinnissen becoming a specialist in handling bulk solids and powders. Today, with over 180 employees, they hold a leading position in the world of powders, particles and granules. They have said that they are proud to be known for their “expertise, quality products and tailor-made solutions.”


Products

Pegasus® Mixer
The Pegasus® Mixer, supplied by Dinnissen Process Technology, is an accurate and highly efficient mixer developed to ensure that even the most challenging mixing process can be carried out quickly and effectively. To accomplish this, the Pegasus Mixers use a double-shaft mixing mechanism that rotates in opposite directions. This creates a unique fluidised zone which lies at the core of the entire mixing process.

Pegasus® Vacuum Coater A great investment for companies looking into producing pelleted and extruded products, the Pegasus® Vacuum Coater creates pellets suitable in accordance with the latest standards and criteria. The machine’s double-shaft paddle suspends ingredients in the air, while the unit simultaneously creates an ultra-vacuum environment with a down level of 50mbar. After spraying and injecting the liquid evenly over each particle, the Pegasus Vacuum Coater presses the particles down, taking only three to four minutes to complete the pelleting process.

When speaking again to Perry Konings, he said there are several new products also in the works; “we have several new innovations such as a complete new configurable hygienic Sample Carousel and a Dinnissen Productivity Platform, which is a fully safe and Integra table-service portal to connect the machines to the cloud for preventive maintenance, data logging and revolutionary webVNC and webHTTP(s) functionality. Furthermore, we have developed a complete new heat-treatment process for flour hygienisation.”

Vibrafloor - Bulk material transport made easy

by Rebecca Sherratt, Production editor, Milling and Grain

With a thirty-year history in providing storage solutions for silos, warehouses, railcards and ships, Vibrafloor SAS have refined their products to suit client specifications and offer a unique and innovative method of moving and emptying bulk materials from storage containers.

 


As the name suggests, Vibrafloor’s unique flexible steel plates utilise vibration to create waves what gently sweep the products towards the outlets for reclaiming. Using this wave method, products become fluidised, and therefore able to be gently swept into troughs and other storage or transport containers. Multiple steel modules cover the floors of silos and ships, ensuring to move every grain of produce, so none is left in the bottom of the storage container. Their automated, low energy consumption technology guarantees an easy, risk-free transport process, with no clean-up needed and high reclaim rates.

Vibrafloor’s floor panels appeal to such a diverse range of customers, due to their fluidity in moving any bulk material, ranging from wheat, soybeans, sulphur, woodchips and even sticky materials such as potash. Vibrafloor panels have been used not just in agricultural industries, but also the aquaculture sector, manufacturing and woodwork, alongside industrial and biomass industries.

Benefits of Vibrafloor technology:
• 100 percent clearance, nothing gets trapped
• No major moving or wearing parts
• Suffers minimal wear from abrasive products
• Low energy use
• No routine maintenance
• No dust or product degradation
• No vibration or stress transfer to structure
• Unmanned automatic operation

When the Vibrafloor panels vibrate, the area where the biggest bulk of product has built up, (also known as the high-pressure zone), discharges and breaks down; an action Vibrafloor often compare to a controlled ‘avalanche’ of product, with a pressure of 80-220 tonnes per m2. As the product is aired and moved down the storage facility, it is forced to enter the low-pressure zone, where waves develop, and the product can cleanly and thoroughly exit the storage silo, separated, clean and without any wastage left in the silo. With dust-proof panels, Vibrafloor ensures that product is not wasted, nor does any damage occur to the plates via debris. No routine maintenance of panels is needed, as they care for themselves and fit securely into storage containers, with no room for produce getting trapped or clogging up plate machinery.

The 690W motor has been optimised to ensure it effectively moves bulk of up to 70 tonnes per m2, without being so harsh it potentially damages delicate produce. The Vibrafloor panels can also handle temperatures of up to 90 degrees Celsius. Upon request, Vibrafloor panels can also come with aeration ducts integrated into each panel, to maximise airflow and ensure an even more thorough cleaning and emptying of the storage facilities.
