Knowledge Database

Being an independent supplier, GRAINTEC is your partner of knowhow on machines from all major suppliers. We have built up our knowledge over time and have insight into a broad range of manufacturers. Also, we work with research and development within our field and keep up to date with newest technology and methods.

Read and download Graintec’s new publication: Hygienic Design and Sanitary Guidelines.

The sanitary design of production facilities is important in order to ensure safety. Especially in pet food production, demands are high with regard to strict hygiene regulations and food processing standards. 

At Graintec we have many years of experience the knowhow about how equipment, facilities and production plants for the feed production industry must be designed, in order to protect animal foods from disease-causing bacteria, chemicals and other contaminants.

The publication on Hygienic Design includes information about:

  • Cross contamination
  • Clean zones
  • Construction details
  • Salmonella

GRAINTEC can be of assistance when the potential hazards at production facilities are examined – and we can assess the required feed safety plans to ensure that production is according with FDA food safety regulations.

Ensuring Technical Product Quality in the Energy Efficient Hot Air Drying of Extruded Fish Feed

The energy efficiency in the hot air drying of extruded fish feed can often be improved. The present Doctoral Thesis by Anders Haubjerg concerns the challenge of improving energy efficiency in the deep-bed hot air drying process, while at the same time conserving the technical quality, and in particular the mechanical durability, of the extruded fish feed pellets.
