New chain feed hopper

Taking a silver medal was the new chain feed
hopper system developed by Tewe-Electronic
from Germany. Tewe has developed its
Chainfeed Hopper Rotodos, which is a dispenser hopper
for silos and buffer tanks that is equipped with a rotor for
dispensing feed onto chain conveyors. The motor-operated
rotor is made of low-wear plastic and provides eight chambers at the bottom of the dispenser hopper. As the rotor
rotates around its horizontal axis, feed is evenly dispensed
onto the chain conveyor across the full width of the dispenser hopper.
This design ensures that the dispenser hopper is emptied completely and therefore also allows CCM to be
used in batch mixers. The design of the rotor unit allows
it to be used as a secure hatch between the filled silo and
the chain conveyor, where it dispenses feed evenly onto
the conveyor and therefore protects the conveyor system
against unnecessarily high loads and wear.

Hygiene valve for piglet feeding

It wouldn't be a EuroTier without an impressive exhibit from Big Dutchman, and this
time around the company went all-out to stamp
on their competition with a wide portfolio of products.
Taking a silver medal was CulinaFlex, which is a new
hygiene valve for the company's suckling piglet feeding system. The novel CulinaFlex valve acts like a pinch
valve on the main feed pipe, which contains a hose with
an air-tight seal to the top and bottom of the external pipe
wall. Feed is then supplied through the hose, and after
feeding is completed, compressed air is delivered into the
cavity between the pipe and hose via an air valve. The resulting positive pressure compresses the hose and pushes
feed residue down towards the trough.
The CulinaFlex hygiene valve then remains closed until the next feed to prevent any external air from entering
the drainage hose. As a result, the hose does not dry out
and preserves an anaerobic environment. At the time of
the next feed, air is released from the cavity, and feed can
once again pass into the trough through the hose, which is
no longer compressed.
