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.

Humic acidscan be successfully used as an additive in animal feed. Various research trials conducted worldwide have all showed positive results concerning the use of humic acids as an organic feed ingredient. Increases in liveweight of animals, improved growth rates, increased feed intakes and food conversion ratios and a stronger resistance against diseases are the common results of these trials. By improving immune function of animals, especially of young animals, humic acids also reduce the incidence of enteric disease and diarrhoea.

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.

Because of its superior disinfection ability, many applications of chlorine dioxide have been found to be extremely beneficial in the dairy industry. Dosing the drinking water lines has led to the reduction in bacteria in the water and thus decreased the somatic cell count in the milk. Replacing iodine with chlorine dioxide as the active ingredient in teat dips has led to reduced mastitis cases. Using chlorine dioxide as a CIP agent in the milk line disinfection has brought a decrease in the E-coli count found in the milk, thus increasing milk quality. Using chlorine dioxide in cow washes has led to reduction in mastitis, decreased hairy hoof wart cases and overall improved herd health.

The food we grow and eat can be sources of disease. While most of these diseases are associated with animal protein, even fruits and vegetables can be a source of disease due to infection from contaminated water. The use of chlorine dioxide increases sanitation and disinfection and, in the case of food and produce, offers the added benefit of not leaving residue.
