When it comes to pet food production, the pursuit of excellence is paramount. Every kibble, treat, and meal that reaches our pets' bowls should present the highest quality, nutrition, and safety standards.
Want to make sure you are getting the right parts – and the best performance – for a sifter, screener or related type of processing equipment?
Having your material processing equipment installed correctly the first time doesn’t happen by chance.
In this article, we'll explain the types, benefits, & components of fluid bed systems and processors. For more questions, please contact our team directly.
What is a Fluid Bed Processor?
A fluid bed processor is a versatile piece of equipment that works on the principle of fluidization. Fluidization means small particles or granules of solids subjected to a gas flow to convert the solid-like state of a static bed to a dynamic fluid-like state.
While the cannabis industry continues its rapid growth (with global sales expected to reach $33.6 billion during the next three years), the fact remains that raw cannabis is inherently difficult to handle. It is both expensive and fragile, making initial sorting a critical path item in terms of productivity and profitability. Small and large operations can benefit from investing in sorting technology from an established manufacturer that is highly efficient,flexible and completely field-proven over many years -- in short, a cost-effective way to producea higher quality product with higher throughput and less waste.
Consumers seeking healthier snack options or better-for-you plant-based proteins have been steadily increasing the demand for nuts for decades. There are more than 20 types of edible nuts in the world, with a market value estimated to reach $459.1 billion by 2030.
Varieties include almonds, peanuts, walnuts, pecans, pine nuts, macadamias and more. Each type of edible nut and each stage of the supply chain from "farm to fork" requires sorting to meet size, quality and purity standards, all while maintaining high throughput.
When Dr. Stephen DeFelice coined the term "Nutraceutical"in 1989, he likely never imagined the word would come to represent such a large and fast-growing industry segment. Herbal products, vitamin/dietary supplements, fibers, phytonutrients, pre- and pro-biotics and protein/amino acids can all be found online and on shelving, and business is booming. Increasing numbers of health-conscious consumers, social media platforms touting various dietary health regimens, and pandemic-driven searches for products to strengthen immune system response have pushed nutraceutical industry growth and is expected to continue for the foreseeable future.
Screen failures can be caused by a number of factors. Just some of the reasons that we’ll cover today include screen fatigue, improper installation, corrosion, shock, and abrasion. Understanding why screens may fail will enable you to proactively inspect, maintain and replace your screens long before you find yourself in a downtime scenario.
