Field trial: PellTech  improves production of a broiler finisher feed

This pelleting trial in a broiler finisher diet in South Asia shows how PellTech® eliminated die blockage, increased rate by 118% and maintained pellet durability. 

The field trial comprised a control run of 32 tonnes of standard broiler finisher, 20 tonnes with 0.25% PellTech, and 20 tonnes with 1% lignosulfonate. Production was complicated by a low level of supplemental phosphate and a thick die.

Key takeaways: 

  • Addition of 0.25% PellTech eliminated all die blockages and increased production rate by 118%.   
  • PellTech reduced power consumption by 14.5%, from 8.7 for Control to 7.4 kWh/T with PellTech.
