Pneumatic distribution to weaning or fattening pigs can be used to transport granulated feed, meal, and damp-corn-based formula. The pneumatic distribution system may be an extension to the feed production equipment, or a specialised independent facility. The system's flexibility means that dry feed can be distributed along very long buildings, or buildings located some distance away. The new switches with cylinder valves lower maintenance costs.
Asserva has designed the Hydrensil system for granulated corn stored in clamp silos. A hydraulic system carries water loaded with corn from the soup machine to the hydrensil. A tank can hold enough corn for the day. A pipe is fitted to the bottom of the hydrensil tank to draw off corn which is transported to the soup machine, that weighs the quantity taken. This system is a real asset as it does not require close proximity to the soup machine, which is often difficult to access
