It is an excellent source of protein, minerals and amino acids for use in feed.
The Production process can be divided into several stages:
Raw material is stored in tanks to prepare for sampling and production.
Raw material goes through steam heated cooker where it is heated up to 95°C for sterilization and to coagulate the proteins to ease the separation of the soluble and the oil from the dry matter.
The cooked raw material is than moved to a screw press where the liquid is pressed out to form a cake, which is conveyed to the driers.
Press liquid (water and oil) is fed to separators where the oil is removed and is then stored in storage tanks. Other particles (protein, salt etc) are removed in a decanter and fed to the drier and mixed in with the press cake.
The liquid (water) from the separators is moved to the evaporators where it is concentrated before being blended with the press cake in the drying process.
Liquid (water) is moved from the press cake by concentrated air-drying.
The fishmeal is very hot when the drying process is completed; it is then cooled down in a specialized cooler before being stored.
