LARVICK, NORWAY — Mixing and vacuum coating specialist, Forberg AS, recently supplied a 500 liter F-500 RVC rotating vacuum coater to a European petfood manufacturer.
Looking to supply specialized dog food, Forberg’s customer needed to be able to incorporate additional fat and oil into the food pellets. With the high-tech vacuum coating equipment, it is possible to add a significant amount of fat after the extrusion process. A special vacuum core coating process allows for deep penetration of fat and equal distribution of additives, such as antioxidants, medicine, vitamins and flavors.
Forberg’s rotating coater has been used for pet food, food, feed and aquafeed manufacture.
