To stand still is to fall back! This motto is
especially true of the highly competitive
feed industry, for as a rule a company can
only hope to succeed with innovative products.
But the way from a bright idea for a
product to the launch of a potential top
seller is long and above all laborious. The
development and testing of new products
often fails because trial batches on a laboratory
scale cannot be made on the real
production plant. The reason is that the
necessary test runs are very time-consuming
and expensive. If test runs are integrated
into the normal production schedule
there may be a problem with deadlines
Let the experts work for you
Berg+Schmidt offers an efficient solution
with its modern spray tower in Ahrensburg,
which closes the difficult gap between the
idea and production. For this newly constructed
plant enables our experts to carry
out spraying trials on a smaller scale and
at comparatively little expense. Together
with you, or according to your specifications,
they develop products, optimize
formulations and accompany the process
of up-scaling to commercial-scale production.
Flexibly structured and highly versatile
A special feature of the flexibly structured
spraying plant is that it can be used for a
number of different processes:
• Spray drying:
In this process aqueous
solutions, suspensions or emulsions
are dried efficiently and at gentle
temperatures to form a powder. Precise
and reproducible temperature
control makes it possible to dry even
• Spray crystallization:
The technology of choice when fats, waxes or other
substances with a high melting point are to be transformed into free-flowing
powder. The starting substances are liquefied and then atomized in
the chamber of the tower. The counter-current of cold air causes the finely
atomized melt to solidify into afree-flowing powder. As in spray drying
the particle size distribution can be adjusted.
and cooling are the most common
methods of encapsulating feed components.
The active ingredients are
coated with protective shell materials.
Choice of specific shell materials
makes it possible to control
release of the encapsulated substances.
Processes such as lipid, hydrocolloid
or matrix encapsulation are
used to achieve optimum protection of
