Intensive use of extractive fishing is threatening important species and forces governments to impose temporary stoppages whilst the profitability of fishing fleets is decreasing and ship-owners are seeing their livelihoods threatened.
As a result of this and in order to satisfy the continually growing demand for fish to feed the world’s population, it has been necessary to breed different types of fish, crustaceans and molluscs in fish farms.
Fish larvae feed on multicellular microorganisms -Rotifera and Artemia-, which in turn require a balanced and natural feeding on microalgae. This is the only way to achieve healthy farmed fish which compare favourably with those found in the wild.

The animal feed industry has its roots in the way traditional millers grinded the grains centuries ago, using (wooden) windmills. Nowadays feed is produced for chickens and other poultry, as well as for cattle, pigs and horses. There is a wide variety of feed and grains produced, with different raw materials (nutrients) applied in several compositions.
In this modern era electric driven pellet mills are applied and grains are cooled mainly in counterflow coolers. To remove dust from the used cooling air usually a baghouse filter is being used which can meet the current severe dust emission standards. After this the air eventually will be blown outside. Especially the cooling air of poultry feed and pig feed production should be deodorized to prevent complaints.
A factory usually has multiple pellet lines in service with about 15,000 to 25,000 m3/h of cooling air per line. Aerox has developed specific solutions for this industry.
On the one hand a compact Aerox®-Injector can be installed per pellet line. On the other hand, airflows of different production lines can be joined together and can be treated with one compact Aerox®-Injector. In practice, this can be added up to 4 lines with a total airflow of up to 90,000 m3/h.
Since the Aerox®-Injector can run on different capacities unnecessary power consumption is prevented when not all pellet lines are in service. This benefits the environment and reduces operational costs.
In the Fish feed process the product is usually conducted to the dryer through pneumatic transport, after which it falls out from the dryer into the cooler. Odour sources in this process are the flash- off of the extruder, transport air, dryer air and possibly also air from the cooler.
The amount of air per line that is emitted and should be deodorized depends amongst others of the type of dryers/coolers (vertical or horizontal), but also whether air is recycled from cooler to the dryer.
One compact Aerox-Injector can treat the total amount of air coming from a complete production line at all times. In many cases it is even possible to treat combined airflows of multiple production lines with one Aerox-Injector!
We are happy to advise you what (cost) technically will be the best solution. The Aerox-Injection technology prevents pollution of the Aerox-Injector by dust or greasy air in this process. This will guarantee the performance and will keep your neighbours really satisfied.
In continuous production systems, the additives are frequently fed to a mixer using the gravimetric dosing process. This requires both high dosing accuracy and consistency. You have the optimum recipe – we have the right weighing and feeding solution for even your most complex tasks.

Measuring Fat in Animal Feed using Benchtop NMR Analyser - MQC. Animal feed is a key component in modern agricultural production ensuring that livestock receives the correct nutritional input for optimum animal health and farm productivity. The amount of fat in animal feed is one of the key nutritional and quality control parameters in the manufacture of animal feed. Our Benchtop NMR Analyser - MQC system provides a fast, simple and accurate method of measuring fat in animal feed without the need for solvent extraction which is slow, labour intensive and requires skilled operators. In addition, the instrument signal is directly and linearly related to hydrogen content (of the fat) which means that chemometrics in combination with a very large set of calibration standards are not required.

Measuring Oil and Moisture Content in Fish Feed using the MQC Benchtop NMR Analyser. The measurement of oil and moisture in fish feed is essential within fish farming, an important and growing industry providing high quality food for a growing global population. Fish feed is a key part of the ecology and economics of the industry making the control of the nutritional content and perceived quality of the product essential.

It is a tree from the rosaceous family and comes from the Asiatic south-east. It is one of the most extended fruit trees, cultivated worldwide, due to its feeding value, easiness to the adaptation to different climates and quality of the products obtained in the industry: juices, cider, liquor, marmalade, sweets and jellies. The bigger production of apple is in China, United States, France, Italy and Turkey.

Industrial Plankton`s algae bioreactors produce the base of the aquatic food chain for aquaculture hatcheries, reliably, and cost effectively. The algae produced on-site is an ideal feed for larval shellfish and shrimp. Finfish hatcheries also benefit from live algae for enriching rotifers and generating live greenwater.
Using real-time monitoring, user friendly equipment, and datalogging, our equipment simplifies algae production, letting hatcheries focus on their livestock, and not their algae.

Economical fish and shrimp production requires maximum nutritional efficiency from feed. Enzymes, including phytase, xylanase, cellulase, protease, lipase, and amylase increase the availability of nutrients, increase absorption of nutrients during digestion, increase fish growth rates, and assist in the survival and thriving of fish in the larval stage. Also, the use of lower cost feedstuffs is made possible for aquaculture with the use of added enzymes. Nutrients that are not digestible using the fish’s normal digestive enzymes become digestible when appropriate enzymes are added to these less expensive feedstuffs.

BIOAQUA is a microbiological product base on a mixture of selectively adapted bacteria, which accelerates the decomposition of organic matter, the degradation of wastes, consumes excessive nutrients and sediments at the bottom of lakes. BIOAQUA prevents and controls excess algae or an algae bloom at Municipal lakes or public fountains. BIOAQUA acts as a highly efficient probiotic that competes with a wide range of aquatic pathogenic and diseases. BIOAQUA prevents and diminishes the eutrophication effect by competing, for food, with algae that receive nutrition form fish waste, over feeding fish, decaying organic matter (leaves & plants), lawn fertilizers.
