Pegasus® Vacuum Coaters

Process:

  1. Mixing & ProcessingMixing & Processing

Through the Pegasus® Vacuum Coater, your product contains all the fats and oils it needs without the outside feeling sticky or greasy. The adjustable vacuum allows liquids to penetrate deep into your product. An active zone of product mixing is created between the two paddle shafts. Oils and water-based substances are sprayed over the pellets and because of the mixing in the active zone, each pellet receives the same amount of liquid. After this, the vacuum ensures that all substances are absorbed by the grains. This then allows a top coating to be added to the product.

  • A dry and manageable product that contains all the necessary fluids
  • Liquids and powders can be added to your product in large quantities
  • Due to the vacuum, added liquids infiltrate into the core of the grain

Mixing, coating, and drying in one solution

The Pegasus® Vacuum Coater efficiently and carefully mixes your porous base product using two rotating shafts with paddles. This reduces product damage to a minimum. Multiple liquids can be added, which are incorporated deep into the product through a vacuum. A new layer of liquid and/or powder provides a complete coating of the product. This layer can have different functions. It can contain aromas and flavors, but it can also be a preservative, protective or decorative coating.  

The Vacuum Coater ensures quick, highly homogeneous mixing of the base product and additives. By turning the vacuum on or off, liquids can be applied deeper or less deep into the pellet. Another advantage is the reduction of the boiling point of raw materials in a vacuum environment. This allows moisture to be extracted from specific products, fully preserving flavor, color, and functional active ingredients, such as vitamins, minerals, flavorings, and enzymes.

  • Multiple layers can be applied
  • The Pegasus® Vacuum Coater can coat any pellet with an enveloping layer
  • Easy to vary vacuum application
  • Retention of taste, color, and effect of added substances
  • Designed, tested, and developed completely in-house

Key features, options, and models

The Pegasus® Vacuum Coater is ideally suited for the production of pet food as well as feed and aquafeed. The system can process all types of extruded product. The well-thought-out control program makes it easy to work with different recipes and to vary the vacuum application and the addition of powders and liquids. Even when it comes to small quantities, switching to a different recipe can be done very quickly and easily.  

The Pegasus® Vacuum Coaters for Petfood

Everyone wants the best for his or her pet. Therefore, a dog or cat pellet must be full of healthy nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. The Vacuum Coater ensures that these substances are absorbed easily and quickly by each pellet. Subsequently, a layer of slurry can be added. This slurry ensures the animal likes the smell and taste of the pellets. Because a slurry makes the pellets sticky, a powder coating can be added for a dry and solid pellet.

Vobra uses the Pegasus® Vacuum coater to produce pet food that is rich in all necessary fats without a greasy feel. Learn more about it in this customer story:

Pegasus® Vacuum Coaters for Feed

The Pegasus® Vacuum Coater is very suitable for the fast and accurate processing of large quantities of pellets. This can include feed pellets for bulls, pigs, chickens, or rabbits. The recipe can be adjusted exactly to what the animals need. The composition of feed not only has an impact on animal welfare but is also crucial in other areas. For example, the composition of feed can be set to maximize feed intake and minimize methane emissions.

Pegasus® Vacuum Coaters for Aquafeed

Fish need sufficient oils and fats, without these substances polluting the water. With the Vacuum Coater, the required substances are easily incorporated into the feed and a top layer of, for example, solidified fat can then be applied. As a result, a pebble contains all the "wet" substances a fish needs, without the pebble disintegrating when it hits the water. The top layer causes the pebble to sink and be easily eaten by the fish. A top layer can also be added to prevent the pebble from sinking. Using vacuum technology, the pebble can be produced to float, slowly sink or sink.  

Olam Agri implemented Vacuum Coaters to produce high-quality aquafeed. In this customer story, find out how vacuum coating helps them increase product quality:

The Pegasus® Vacuum Coater has a very compact design and features extra-large inspection hatches, making quick and thorough cleaning very easy. As a result, it’s also easy to switch from one production recipe to another, while meeting the strictest hygienic requirements. Even if the production capacity per recipe fluctuates greatly. The Pegasus® Vacuum Coater can be equipped with easily removable paddle welds. For production processes that must meet extremely strict requirements in terms of preventing contamination with harmful microorganisms, Dinnissen also offers a range of additional hygienic functionalities for the Vacuum Coater, including hot air treatment and CIP cleaning.

How it works

The unprocessed pellets enter the Vacuum Coater through a sealed connection. After creating a vacuum, mixing is initiated and the liquid is sprayed on. The double-axis paddle mixer ensures that the product is mixed homogeneously. The built-in nozzles cause a predetermined amount of liquid to be sprayed onto the pellets. Dinnissen Vacuum Coaters are optionally equipped with product-tight bottom valves with a labyrinth seal developed by Dinnissen. This allows no product residue to remain in the seal. The result is optimal quality, safety and homogeneity.
