STUDIES AND MEASUREMENTS OF EMANATED DUST IN THE ATMOSPHERE DURING THE PRODUCTION OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF COMPOUND FEED
Compound feed are very used in animal alimentation from livestock, because due to the complexity of the types of the cereals used and its nutritional and caloric contributions, it ensures a high productivity at a relatively low cost price. It is well known that a certain recipe of compound feed must be used in function of the breed and age of the animals which will be nourished and that is why this field of activity is so diversified.
The activities carried out in compound feed factories form a very complex technological flow. In order to obtain the final product in the form of granules, the mixture of nutrients must be passed through in a special molds, then it needs to be sterilized with steam jets at high temperatures and, finally, cooled by air jetsIn this article have been made experimental measurements about the dust concentrations eliminated in air in view of testing the reliability of the installations used for compound feed production and compliance with the standards of environmental protection.
