Croston Engineering has 35 years’ experience in the design and building of process plants for the animal feed, food and associated industries. An important part of this work includes ensuring the provision of a clean and safe working

environment covering both the health perspective and the prevention of dust build-up which could be the source of fire or explosion hazards. As part of its service to the industry the Company is well versed in the provision of dust extraction

and vacuum cleaning systems which, together with ensuring compliance with DSEAR/ATEX Explosion Regulations as may be appropriate, and good housekeeping in the prompt cleaning up of spillages and blockages, has a beneficial effect in the operational efficiency of plants.

VevoVitall® VevoVitall®

chemical formula C6

contains 99.9% technically pure benzoic acid which is an aromatic compound with the H5

COOH. VevoVitall® pig feeds at an inclusion rate of 5-10kg/t. VevoVitall®

is registered as an acidifier for use in growing and finishing is also authorised as a zootechnical feed additive,

to be added via a premixture, for piglets from weaning to 25kg liveweight at a dose of 5kg/t. The metabolism of VevoVitall®

leads to the production of hippuric acid which is excreted via the

urine, decreasing urinary pH. This in turn reduces the release of ammonia from slurry, thus reducing the pig units environmental impact. Studies show that ammonia emissions can be reduced by an average 25% when VevoVitall®

is included in feed at 10kg/t of feed.


As a multinational supplier of recovery and contamination control services, Isotron offers a selection of technologies which effectively recover contamination in many different types of product, which could include; animal feed products, cosmetics, toiletries and display packaging. The safe and cost effective technologies employed by Isotron work by inactivating the spoilage organisms at the source of the contamination without causing harm or damage to the actual products. Irradiation is effective in controlling microbial contamination in animal feed, pet food and treats.

The process exposes products to gamma photons or electrons (the dose is reported in kiloGray (kGy), and is the unit of measure for absorbed dose). By doing this the micro-organisms are inactivated with the processing parameters being agreed in advance. As an effective process, the irradiation of animal feed is accepted by the regulatory authorities in

most countries. Isotron can effectively treat: Pet treats such as chews; Birdseed for pet and wild birds; Compound feeds and foodstuffs - mixed grains, hay, straw, silage With locations 13 facilities in the UK, Europe, Asia and South Africa, Isotron can accommodate

the irradiation of boxes as well as full pallets of product. Isotron is well positioned to provide a tailored solution to your specific requirements.


Kemin BE SAFE platform for the production of safe animal feed BE SAFE is a conceptual model developed by Kemin for the production of safe animal feed, among other things. It is based on an integrated and systematic approach to assure high hygiene standards during the feed production, storage, transportation and distribution within the animal farms. This model includes several programmes dedicated to the control of microbial contamination (including Salmonella) of the feed: cleaning and sanitation, feed and feed raw material decontamination, and feed preservation by avoiding recontamination and future microbial growth. The Solid State Disinfection programme is a cleaning and sanitation programme, which is essential tool to diminish secondary Salmonella contamination of feed. It is an extremely useful development for
