Superior feed quality ensures you the most profitable operation, health, growth and feed conversion rate for your livestock.

Vertical or horizontal design

Building a feed mill can be done either vertical or horizontal. The vertical design is made by placing the processing equipment in towers, and the horizontal placing as much equipment as possible on the floor. After building hundreds of feed mills around the world, SKIOLD primarily choose the horizontal design because it is the most efficient solution for our customers:

The benefits are: 
• to facilitate accessibility, easier to get around the factory with trucks and materials
• to increase productivity, as working on one floor is faster than working on several floors 
• to save costs for the building, since tall buildings are generally much more expensive

To obtain capacities higher than that, e.g. 80 t/h, a basic plant of 40 t/h will typically be extended with a second parallel production line. Intake/cleaning and possibly dosing will be common, supplying the two production lines with separate mixing, possibly pelleting, and handling of ready feed functions.

SKIOLD feed mills are batching plants, usually 1-3 tons per batch up to 5-6 tons per batch, normally with 8-12 batches/h. With a 3 tons batch system, the capacity will be 30 t/h with 10 batches/h. With 4-6 tons/batch, the capacity will be 40-60 t/h. The tendency goes towards more batches/h – up to 15-20. However, this gives a batch time of only 3-4 min., and this puts high demands on dosing speed, grinding capacity and conveying capacity.

Full traceability

Every function in the plant is controlled automatically via the control system. The control system can include traceability. Full traceability requires that the plant is designed for it. This includes among others a storage system with the possibility of dividing the incoming materials into lots, which are marked with e.g. a number for unique recognition. The plant must be designed in such a way that it is possible to follow these batches throughout the production process, in order for the control system to keep track of the batches.
