C&H Nutrition to distribute Adiveter product

C&H Nutrition has become the UK distributor for the unique on-line moisture sensoring system and product dosing package that manufacturer Adiveter claims can optimise feed pelleting efficiency and reduce energy consumption. C&H Nutrition sister company Brown and Gilmer becomes the Adiveter agent in Ireland.

Central to the success of the package is the innovative wetting agent Re-Hydra Pro, which Adiveter has developed to prevent moisture loss during the pelleting or extruding process. According to Adiveter European sales manager Rein Derksen, correct application of Re-Hydra Pro allows feed compounders to optimise end product quality and production efficiency through the use of a complete feed moisture management system.

"Re-Hydra Pro is dark blue liquid containing mono and diglycerides that reduce the surface tension of water. The product also incorporates a combination of organic acids that inhibit fungal and bacterial growth, which means feed manufactures can achieve a much more effective feed moisture balance," he points out.

"What's more, the on-line moisture sensor and specially designed dosing equipment integral to the system ensure that the optimum level of Re-Hydra Pro is always added. And a strong hands-on commitment to ensuring the system meets manufacturer objectives is at the heart of our service." Commenting on the new marketing agreement, C&H Nutrition business development manager Dr Alan Reeve said he had been impressed with the international trial data from feed mills in Spain and South America.

"After installing the Adiveter system, a number of both feed and pet food manufacturers are reporting moisture retention improvements in their end product, whilst at the same time inhibiting mould growth. Reductions in energy consumption are also being achieved, which is extremely attractive in the current climate," he said.

"With feed raw material prices escalating and alternative ingredient options always being sought to mitigate potential price increases, we believe this system offers feed manufacturers exciting opportunities to be flexible without necessarily compromising pellet quality or mill throughput."
