Field Trial: PellTech improves swine finisher pellets production

This pelleting trial at an integrator in the USA making swine finisher pellets shows how PellTech® increased production rate from 59 TPH (tonnes per hour) to 70 TPH. At the same time, the power required per tonne of pellets dropped from 6.8 to 5.6 kWh/tonne.

The field trial compared a control run of 50 tonnes of standard swine finisher ration and 50 tonnes with 0.5% PellTech. The production rate was dramatically increased without loss of pellet durability.

Key takeaways:

  • Addition of 0.5% PellTech allowed production rate to increase from 59 to 70 TPH.
  • Power required per tonne of feed was reduced from 6.8 to 5.6 kWh.
