how hps technology can help
pet food process improvements
Increasing demand for pet food and animal feed has put pressure on manufacturers to improve plant efficiency, increase throughput and improve production capacity.
Safety concerns, increasing competition, pet food regulations and the threat of cross-contamination are also challenging pet food manufacturers.
HPS’s focus is to help solve these challenges by providing advanced, high-performance, industry leading pigging and liquid transfer solutions that deliver transformational results for pet food processing and production.
From design, implementation, commissioning and aftercare, our proven product recovery (pigging) and liquid transfer systems can deliver significant return on investment for pet food companies.
Improving the efficiency of pet food processing
HPS has worked with a variety of pet food manufactures to improve and automate product transfer, processing and packaging. Our pigging and automatic distribution (Rotomatrix) systems help increase processing speed, reduce waste, minimise contamination risks and improve overall efficiencies.
Take your pet food processing to the next level
HPS has unrivalled knowledge, expertise and understanding in delivering fully customised pigging and liquid transfer solutions that improve the efficiency and performance of the pet food manufacturing process. You can rely on our many years of application expertise for the pet food industry.
We work in partnership with you to design a solution that meets your exact requirements and ensures proper specification and integration. Our world-leading technologies offer a wide range of benefits to pet food applications:
- The removal of practically all traces of product residue from the pipeline (both low and high viscous products)
- Higher product yields, reduced waste processing
- Improved lot traceability and batch control
- Reduced use of water and cleaning chemicals
- Minimised product mixing, dilution and interface
- Streamlined processing times, less plant downtime
- Detectable hygienic (sanitary) pigs specially designed for pet food processing
- Increased plant capacity, improved operational efficiency
- Reliable prevention of cross-contamination
- Plus many more
A pigging system is saving a pet food manufacturer roughly $42,000 AUS per year in product alone. This is in addition to savings from faster changeovers and reduced downtime, and savings from lower CIP and water usage
Increase Pet Food Sustainability
Sustainably produced, eco-friendly pet food is in increasing demand by pet owners.
HPS pigging systems are in wide use by companies that manufacture pet food. This is not only because pigging increases yields, capacity, and speeds up changeovers, but also because pigging systems help environmentally sustainable pet food production.
Pigging systems are great for the environment becuase they save large amounts of product, as well as flush water and CiP chemicals
Pigging also speeds up changeovers so saves power. And because there is less product and flush waste that needs to be disposed of, waste treatment and transport costs are lower.
