freedom from pathogens and prevents recontamination during handling, storage and transportation. The United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) approved a label claim that it does so for up to 21 days, while EFSA found that a formaldehyde-based feed treatment such as Termin-8® provides a viable alternative to heat treatment. When the Veterinary Laboratories Agency in the UK investigated the treatment of animal feedstuffs


with organic acids and formaldehyde it found large variations in their effi cacy and effects. The treatment which achieved by far the best Salmonella kill was identical to Termin-8® The Anitox Program guarantees trouble-free results and safer, cleaner feed. Focused on Termin-8®,


it includes situation analysis, mill inspection, regular feed sampling, laboratory analysis, application equipment and installation. It also includes regulatory management assistance and routine visits by service engineers to ensure optimum results. Termin-8® has no residual effect in the gastrointestinal tract, leaves no residue in tissue, eggs or milk and has no withdrawal time. Anitox is a global leader in bio-security technology and customized milling effi ciency solutions for the animal feed industry.

In compound feed production, the combination of organic acids and thermal feed treatment (pelleting, expanding etc), has proved successful in controlling salmonella and other pathogenic micro-organisms present in raw materials. Organic acids also ensure feed preservation (incl mould control), and provide protection from reinfection with Salmonella. BASF Organic Acids provide effective solutions for compound feed hygiene and preservation requirements. BASF produce Formic & Proprionic Acid. We offer these as single acids and as blends formulated to ensure cost effective Salmonella protection and feed preservation. The full BASF organic acid range is available in both pure acid and buffered form. Pure Acid Amasil 85 Lupro-Cid Lupro-Mix Luprosil


Buffered Acid Amasil NA


Lupro-Cid NA Lupro-Mix NC Lupro-Grain


Further support for customers is offered by BASF fi eld engineers, who can provide installation, calibration & servicing expertise for mill application systems.

Prevent fail-to-danger with the new KSD+ power isolator Castell, a provider of industrial safety components for over 90 years, has redesigned the electrical isolator to prevent component failure leading to malfunction. The KSD+ is a new trapped key interlock power isolator, suitable for 3-phase currents from 32 amps to 250 amps, which dramatically increases safety protection over conventional designs, preventing fail-to-danger. Designed to the latest standard BS EN 60947-3:2009, the new KSD+ has been created with a non


direct-drive interlocking mechanism. The key that controls the operation of the isolator does not bear the load of switching the contacts, traditionally a potential point of failure. Switching is now achieved with an extending handle that increases the ease of use, as well as device reliability. The key traps the handle in place and prevents operation when the key is removed. To further enhance the safety of the KSD+, the ability to switch the device on


while the case is open has been removed through the use of a coded sensor. This is an issue for current designs of isolator, even where protection has been built in, as such protective measures can easily be overcome. The KSD+ coded sensor ensures the case is secure before allowing operation, meaning that the user is protected to a much higher degree. The KSD+ features a stainless steel enclosure that can be placed in harsh


environments - this is important for food, chemical and heavy industry applications. To further support use in harsh environments, Castell has removed all labels from the KSD+ and etched all information directly into the enclosure itself. The new KSD+ unit is fully compatible with previous FS lock types and can therefore be used in existing interlocking systems. Keith Allingham, Castell’s operations director, commented: “The new KSD+ is a
