Feed processing equipment manufacturer CPM will roll out its pellet mill enhancement and social media plan to animal feed and poultry customers at the 2012 International Feed Expo in Atlanta later this month.
“CPM is pleased to offer feed […] customers the ability to produce higher quality pellets at a lower cost through our new pellet mill enhancement,” says Scott Anderson, general sales manager for CPM.
“Our lineator remote roller adjustment can now be coupled with roll speed measurement—allowing customers to monitor the speed of the rolls and provide better roll-slip management to prevent plugs.”
In pelleting, a larger die and more steam provide for a better pellet at a lower cost; but too much steam can cause roller slippage and die blockage.
More than 20 years ago, CPM provided a great solution to this problem with the development of the CPM lineator—making it possible to remotely control the distance between the roller and die surface while the pellet mill is in operation.
Now, CPM’s roller speed measurement combined with the CPM lineator allows for cost-efficient, higher-capacity production with the same pellet quality, but with improved steam addition control and fewer overloads and blockages.
At Expo, CPM will be showcasing this new pellet mill enhancement as well as other CPM equipment important to animal feed production, including roller mills, hammermills, microscales and feedmill automation.
CPM will also launch its social media plan at the International Feed Expo (IFE) held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Jan. 24-26.
“We’re excited to roll out our social media plan at Expo to better connect with our customers through LinkedIn and share the latest CPM and industry news through Twitter, Flickr and YouTube,” says Anderson.
“Our CPM Users Group on LinkedIn has been helpful for customers to share CPM parts and equipment they have for sale, pellet production tips and more. The CPM team always looks forward to Expo each year because we get to meet with our customers and friends in person. This year we look forward to welcoming them into our social media world too.”
To generate some fun and excitement at CPM’s expo booth #1029, CPM is having a social media sweepstakes contest to give CPM Twitter followers the opportunity to win great prizes, including an iPad and a free CPM test centre sample ($1,000 value).
Customers can follow CPM on Twitter @CPMRoskamp, on YouTube at CPMRoskamp, on Flickr at CPMRoskamp, on LinkedIn at CPM Roskamp Champion or join the CPM Users Group.
