Equipment

FEECO has been serving the agriculture industry since 1951. Many of the animal feed industry’s largest producers rely on our expertise for their animal feed production needs; we can provide everything from a single piece of equipment, to a complete process system.

Material Processing

Animal Feed Granulation with a High Speed Mixer

While the traditional approach to animal feed production has served the industry for a long time, our proprietary approach to the granulation of Mono-Calcium Phosphate (MCP), Di-Calcium Phosphate (DCP), and De-Fluorinated Phosphate (DFP) yields an improved product with greater uniformity and overall crush strength.

 

Through the use of our high-speed mixer as a pre-mixing step, a more intimate mixture of the feed materials is created, resulting in a more thorough reaction and subsequently, improved product characteristics.

 

In addition to the high-speed mixer and pug mill, we can also provide rotary dryers and coolers, as well as support equipment such as screens.

 

Systems can be provided for capacities up to 50 MTPH and can be automated with a PLC-based control system, motor control center, and instrumentation.

Pelletizing

As a leader in particle size enlargement, we can also provide custom agglomeration equipment for pelletizing animal feeds, including pin mixers and disc pelletizers.

Material Handling

FEECO also provides a comprehensive line of material handling equipment for all of your feed handling needs. We offer custom bucket elevators, belt conveyors, reversing shuttle conveyors, and steep incline conveyors, along with pieces to increase the flexibility of your handling system, such as belt trippers and plows, and belt feeders.

 

We can supply a single piece of handling equipment to fit into your existing process, or a complete handling system as part of an overall process solution.

Plant and Pilot Scale Process Testing and Design

The FEECO Innovation Center is a unique testing facility where we can test your material at both batch and pilot scale in order to work out process variables and design commercial-scale units, as well as scale up the process.

 

The FEECO Innovation Center is well-equipped to suit a wide range of testing needs; we can test on a single piece of equipment, or a continuous process loop.

We offer comprehensive testing services in four categories:


Feasibility/Proof of Concept: An initial, non-witnessed batch testing phase in which the possibility of creating a product is explored.
Proof of Product: A more in-depth batch testing phase in which more time is spent determining whether a product can be made to desired specifications.
Proof of Process: A continuous testing phase that aims to establish the equipment setup and parameters required for continuous production of your specific material.
Process/Product Optimization: An in-depth study to optimize your specific material’s characteristics and/or production parameters in an industrial setting.
