While we pay lots of attention to the production processes of the food we consume and purchase for our families, we often, as consumers, don’t give a second thought to the food we purchase for our pets, or how that food is treated. But when news gets out about a pet food recall and the distress some pets experience, including renal failure and death, suddenly consumers become very interested in the manufacturing process. Komax is able to assist this industry with a mix of innovative, quality designed manufacturing products that make the procedure sanitary and safe for your furry friends.
While commercials tout the quality of the ingredients in the food we buy our pets, they don’t go into the way in which those ingredients need to be mixed in order to produce a quality outcome. But the mixing process is the same for pet foods as it is for the food we buy for our children. The mixing process is critical, and so is the heating process.
Komax offers a range of customizable static mixers to perfectly blend products that are both solid and softer in nature, with easily cleaned parts or parts that require nearly no maintenance at all. This is vital to the sanitation process, as more traditional mixers create sludging that clings to walls of the pipes and vats, setting up a playground for bacteria and other hazards. So, too, our Sanitary Steam Heater works well with some of the heavier slurries the pet food manufacturing process deals with and is also highly energy efficient, saving money and costs for heating.
The way pet food is produced affects your pet, your family, and in some cases even the environment. Komax is proud to offer partnership with products that make the process so much safer.
