Bühler launches singlescrew extruder PolyOne
At VICTAM International 2019 trade fair, Bühler showcased its solutions for the entire feed value chain, with a special focus on how to use digital services to make the feed industry safer, and more profitable.
Bühler has launched its new single-screw extruder PolyOne, designed to consistently deliver high product quality for the pet food and aqua feed industries. 'PolyOne enables our customers to maximise their productivity, and helps to prevent product recalls,' says Christoph Naef, Head of Business Unit Nutrition at Bühler Group.
PolyOne meets highest food and feed safety standards thanks to its perfected hygienic design. It is a modular system so Bühler can adapt PolyOne to customers' specific needs, such as higher capacities.
Another innovation present was the Kubex T, which provides highest processing transparency thanks to an application that connects it to Bühler Insights, the pioneering cloud platform for the food and feed industry. A dashboard visualises data for customers, making their processes transparent.
This allows for seamless tracking and brings production downtimes to a minimum. Algorithms and Bühler experts help millers to optimise the mill's parameters. With it, customers achieve higher profits and lower production costs thanks to innovations in intelligent process optimisation. Kubex T is designed for high-capacity pelleting.
Customers will use up to 20 percent less energy compared to conventional pellet mills, benefit from high production capacities of up to 80 tonnes-per-hour, and a customer-driven design, all of which are the result of extensive Bühler research and development in cooperation with leading feed millers.
