The fat is one of the most important liquid that is used on the manufacturing process of compound feed. By general norm the FAT ADDITION in the feed should be done when this is in flour form and it is put into MIXER with the correct pulverization to reach the best and optimum homogeneity results.
As general norm all liquid must be carried, stored and injected at minimum temperature necessary for its handling and unification. The received fat is filtered (is advisable with little mesh light), in the UNLOADING SMALL WELL, from here is driven by the UNLOADING PUMP to the STORAGE TANK. The storage tanks or deposits are generally CYLINDRICAL and its base is of conical form. The heated water is put into circulation by the jacket or double bottom to maintain an optimal STORAGE temperature.
The appropriate FAT temperature will be maintained for the heated water circulation by the jackets or double bottom on the last conical part of the silos. Insertion of water chambers circulating in PUMPS and FLOWMETERS, the trays on the valves by the BITUBULAR system on the piping, and the placement of RESISTANCES controlled on determined sections by thermostats.The heating of the water and to circulate it several heating systems are used: steam interchanger, small boiler with electrical resistances, boilers of diesel-oil, of gas, electrical, etc.
Once the FAT is optimized in TEMPERATURA (Fluidity), and FILTERED from impurities, it is ready to incorporate, injecting it and pulverizing it to the flour of MIXER. The INCORPORATION PUMP is the charged one for injection. The pulverization is determined by the INJECTORS and the dosage control by the COUNTER or FLOWMETER, which should give the information to the DISPENSER COUNTER, as well as, to the TOTALIZER COUNTER.
