2013 petfood industry
extrusion round-up

By Lindsay Beaton

Companies stayed ahead of the curve with partnerships,
research and equipment solutions throughout the year
WHETHER THEY FOCUSED on partnerships
and solutions, petfood safety, going green
or equipment, companies involved in the
extrusion section of the petfood industry
stayed on top of the game in 2013.

Bühler Inc., in partnership with Hagen Industries Ltd., designed a petfood processing
system equipped with a twin-screw extruder,
a hammer mill, feeder, pre-conditioner and
a Bühler Aeroglide dryer and cooler that
allows Hagen to manufacture small volumes
of product.

BÜHLER INC. AND HAGEN Industries
Ltd. partnered to create an extrusion solution that allows Hagen to manufacture
small volumes of product while maintaining good operation parameters. The
Hagen petfood factory in Waverly, New
York, USA, manufactures large volumes
of dog and cat food.  When lower volume
runs of small animal food products were
required, the facility had to shut down its
10-ton extruder to clean and reconfigure
the process. In response, Bühler designed a
petfood processing system equipped with
a twin-screw extruder, a hammer mill,
feeder, pre-conditioner and a Bühler Aeroglide dryer and cooler.
"When you need to run a small

amount of product, but the process you
have produces 10 tons per hour, you can
end up with a lot of waste," said Hagen
general manager Yvan Giguére. "The new
Bühler processing line has allowed us to
make smaller batches, and this means we
always have fresh product." According to
Hagen, the new system has dramatically
streamlined inventory and enhanced the
company's ability to ensure the quality and
freshness of its products. The company can
now process 1,000-2,000 pounds per hour
depending on the need. 
EXTRU-TECH INC. BUILT A BSL (biosafety level) 2 pilot plant outfitted with a
production-scale Extru-Tech E525 extrusion system. As a result, the company now
offers the industry's first scientific validation study of a petfood extrusion system
that kills Salmonella at levels higher than
normally found in most facilities.
