The food area is divided into flakes, granulated food and food tablets. For each type of food JBL has its own machine. The four meter long flaker roll weighs 15,000 kg and runs 24 hours a day. For the production of granulated food an extruder is used, which processes the fed mash into an “endless sausage” of the desired thickness and then cuts it into layers. That way granules can be produced in all thicknesses, shapes and combinations of ingredients. After the production the different flakes and granules are mixed in with the respective food type and filled into the tins. Food tablets, on the other hand, are mechanically compacted in separate machines. This is done by purely mechanical means to enable us to manage without any binding agents and fillers.
