New pellet tower and pellet press commissioning
01 March 2023
The new pellet press and cooling tower are almost complete, we are up to laying electricity lines and commissioning of the plant should take place next month. This 5-story project has encountered many delays due to importing the equipment, contamination of some containers and the inability to get the structural steel required.
This new pellet press will have 2 die sizes which we can interchange. We will continue to make the 10mm pellets we have always made, and the new die will make a larger 18mm pellet. These larger pellet which will be approximately 5 cm long can be fed off the ground so minimal infrastructure is required. The extra chewing of the pellets will further increase digestive enzymes which will breakdown fibre and increase digestion.
