IQI Trusted Petfood Ingredients’ distribution and warehousing facilities in Europe and North America can normally only be visited by clients and partners with an appointment. Because Covid has made travelling and on-site visits difficult, IQI has decided to give a sneak peek online behind its warehouse doors. Since IQI cannot show you around physically, you can now see its work processes in action in a unique new video filmed on location at IQI’s European warehouse.
IQI’s distribution and warehousing facilities in Coevorden (Europe) and Tracy (North America) both offer warehousing solutions for year-round availability of seasonal products, and also perform any required quality checks, foreign body removal, screenings, additional natural or synthetic antioxidant dosing and repackaging from bulk to big bags or small bags. The bulk departments at both facilities specialize in the screening and cleaning of lamb meal, which is a seasonal product sourced from Australia and New Zealand. The unique new video focusses on the steps for processing lamb meal.
The screening and cleaning process is designed to remove foreign bodies from the lamb meal using a variety of techniques – including a clean flow magnet, bullet magnet, Safeline metal detector and the new Rotex screener. The new Rotex screener, recently commissioned at IQI’s European warehouse, not only improves the sifting and cleaning process of the lamb meal, it also substantially reduces the processing time. The Rotex screener has a much larger screening surface and its Gyratory Reciprocating Motion quickly and efficiently removes foreign bodies, such as plastic particles, bone, wool, and hair, from the lamb meal. A larger version of the same screener was already in use at IQI’s other facility in Tracy (North America). IQI’s facilities in Europe and North America both maintain strategic supplies of clean, high-quality lamb meal that can be used directly for pet food applications.
