Prevent downtime and increase flexibility, quality and capacity
The Van Aarsen CU Dynamic pellet mill with motor-operated roller adjustment and active roller slip control enables compound feed manufacturers to always produce exactly the correct pellet quality with one push of a button. Moreover, with the CU Dynamic pellet mill, feed millers can prevent downtime caused by the mill becoming blocked. This can result in a 15% increase in production capacity.
Motor-operated roller adjustment increases pellet quality and production capacity
An optimum constant pellet quality boosts feed intake and animal health. In addition, optimum quality feed pellets means less dust and waste in transport and feeding systems. However, supplying the correct pellet quality is not a constant process and is highly dependent on factors such as desired end quality, production capacity, the recipe used and raw materials. When producing pellets, setting the correct roller distance to the die is one of the main factors to guarantee correct pellet quality. This is a time-consuming factor that in practice calls for so many manual actions that correct setting is almost impossible.
Reduce downtime due to roller slip by 95%
The CU Dynamic pellet mill is equipped with an active roller slip control system. When the rollers slip and the mill threatens to become full, the system detects the slip and takes immediate action. The active roller slip control presses the rollers immediately against the die, preventing the rollers slipping and the meal accumulated in front of the roller is milled away. The control system reduces downtime due to roller slip by 95%. If the mill stops due to another overload, the rollers can be retracted by the motor-operated roller adjustment and pressed against the die so that the mill starts up again quickly. The motor-operated adjustment of the rollers is even possible while the pellet mill is in full operation. In combination with the roller slip control, the operator can experiment during the production process with the roller setting to optimise pellet mill load and production capacity.
Reduce wear and die changes
Van Aarsen developed the CU Dynamic pellet mill with motor-operated roller adjustment especially for compound feed manufacturers who have to make regular recipe changes. With this new mill feed producers can set the optimum roller distance to the die with one push of a button. Thanks to a link to the factory automation system it is possible to select the correct roller setting automatically for established recipe settings. This means the recipe can be changed quickly and easily. As the mechanical energy factor can also be determined by setting the roller distance, the die (thickness) does not have to be changed as often. This also helps reduce downtime. The CU Dynamic pellet mill is equipped with a die cleaning mode so that the operator can clean the die easily whenever he wants. The meal does not have the opportunity to cake onto the die, which results in a quick start-up of the pellet mill. As the rollers retract automatically after each product, there is less wear of the die and rollers and their life is increased by up to 30%.
Payback time less than two years
The new CU Dynamic pellet mill by Van Aarsen International increases flexibility and pellet quality and reduces downtime. This results in an increase in production capacity and also savings on maintenance and equipment. If required, existing Van Aarsen mills can be upgraded to the new advanced CU Dynamic.
