Selko Dosing Equipment

Producing feed with consistent nutrient value, moisture content, and overall quality can be challenging. Stringent demands from authorities, intense competition, and customer awareness, create a situation where feed production must achieve the highest possible standards. Therefore, applying feed additives in a safe, accurate and consistent way can improve feed quality and milling efficiency.

In-line Moisture Management

Managing the moisture content in feed formulations is critical as it can compensate for weight losses during feed processing, it can also preserve the shelf life of products and allow for uniform quality of finished feed.

Selko offers various moisture management systems, fitting for all sizes of feed mill production plants. One of these systems is the Moisture Management System (MMS) as part of the Feed Processing & Quality programme. MMS is a self-regulating solution that helps address issues causing variability and feed safety concerns during feed processing. A microwave sensor is installed below the mixer, in the unloading bunker. The sensor sends actual moisture level of the compound feed to the MMS, which compares the data with a set point and adjusts the dosage of the hydrated solution immediately.

Feed hygiene

Buffered blends of organic acids can help safeguard microbiological risks during processing and after feed leaves the mill and protect against recontamination risk across the distribution chain. The buffering of organic acids is essential to less evaporation and longer efficacy of the solution. As hygiene enhancers, organic acids also provide a good alternative to formaldehyde which has been banned in the EU for several years.

Ensuring accurate and safe dosing is essential in keeping microbial loads at the lowest possible level, both during production as well as storage times. Selko offers various systems that ensure an optimal dividing of product, that can be fully integrated. These systems offer potent dosing solutions to raw material traders, oil seed crushers and extruded- and compound feed producers.

On-farm dosing solutions

To optimise feed utilisation, good hygiene practices are essential. Organic acids are an ecologically sound solution for feed preservation. The usage is safe for humans and animals and results in a more efficient use of resources.

Selko offers dedicated dosing solutions for farmers. Whether it is through in-line water application, treatment of by-products for liquid swine feeds or silage management for total mixed ration (TMR) or corn cob mix (CCM), the importance of safe dosing and accuracy is paramount. 

Through many years of experience, Selko has developed an array of dosing solutions that help farmers to safely apply blends of buffered and non-buffered organic acids in order to maintain animal production through broad protection against yeasts, moulds and enterobacteria such as Salmonella.
