BRAUNSCHWEIG, GERMANY — The International Research Association of Feed Technology is planning a practical course on pelleting of compound feed in English from Feb. 26-27 at its research institute in Braunschweig, Germany.
Technical knowledge on pelleting will be covered in short lectures and then deepened in practical exercises at the pilot plant stations of the institute. In practical tests, the impacts of unfavorable process parameters on the pellet quality will be demonstrated. Different measuring and test methods will be introduced. Their applications will be practiced. The participants will be enabled to improve the handling and control of the pelleting process in daily practice with simple means.
The course mainly appeals to employees who are directly involved with the pelleting process and can influence significantly the essential quality properties of the produced pellets (abrasion stability, moisture) by their technical know-how and experience.
The participation in this course is especially recommended for the training and further education of persons who have entered the compound-feed industry from other industries.
The deadline for registration is Feb. 13.
