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 mash fed into it into an “endless sausage” of the desired thickness and then cuts it into layers. That way granulates, wafers, pearls and chips can be produced in all thicknesses, shapes and compositions. The extrudate is dried in suspension on an air bed drying unit developed by JBL. In this way, in contrast to screen drying, it dries evenly from all sides and thus more gently and quickly. After the production the different flakes and granulates are mixed in with the respective food type and filled into the tins. Food tablets, on the other hand, are mechanically compressed in separate machines which produce about 1 million tablets per day. This is done by purely mechanical means to enable us to manage without any binding agents and fillers.
