Core equipments in petfood productions that IDAH has solutions for are listed below.
Twin shaft mixer
Petfood safety is the key feature for IDAH twin shaft mixer. IDAH mixers ensure high accuracy of mixing and hygienic features such as minimized residue and bacteria growth. IDAH mixers used for petfood application have been delivered to many countries including Japan, Holland, Korea, China, Thailand, India, Taiwan and others.
IDAH has wide range of extrusion cooking systems to produce full range of petfoods and small animal food with controlled shapes, textures and colors. And it is including direct expanded, semi-moist, soft and co-extruded products.
IDAH extrusion cooking systems for petfood include single screw extruder and ContraTwin screw extruder systems.
Advantages of the IDAH extrusion cooking process:
IDAH twin shaft pre-conditioners have an independent drive on each shaft, which improves power consumption and noise, and also allows the machine to be completely emptied by slowing and reversing the paddles. The addition of misting steam and water injectors further improves conditioner performance, followed by the use of steam jacketed mixer conveyors after the conditioner which creates an homogenous mix with little to no free water. Inappropriate pre-conditioning will cause cracks on pellet surface and creating more fines.
ContraTwin screw extruder is breaking new ground in terms of product quality (especially when running high fibre formulations), low energy costs and low wear costs. Or machines offers very positive conveying action inside these machines allows us to run high meat content and co-extruded products at rates others find difficult to believe.
IDAH VC2R dryer has an especially small footprint and height compared to typical vertical counterflow dryers and also uses a lot less electrical power than most other designs, cutting down on capital costs, energy costs, maintenance costs and noise. A round shaped VCR dryer generates a very homogeneous air flow stream inside the dryer which allows an extremely uniform treatment of the product. This process air flow leads simply to the fact that over drying of the product is not given. Constant tumbling (up to seven times) of the product to be dried leads to best results in uniform water evaporation.
