FEATHERS AND HAIR

HYDROLYZING

Hydrolyzing is the process of heating products containing Keratin, like Feathers and Hair, under pressure forcing moisture into the cells causing the cells to rupture shortening the protein chains, and making them digestible by some animals. 

BATCH HYDROLYZER

BATCH HYDROLYZER

The Alloy Batch Hydrolyzer has set several new standards;

  • Thicker Innershells
  • Mechanical Seals
  • Lower Horsepower
  • Offset Filler Neck 
  • Dodge brand Drive and Bearings

ALLOY HIGH PROTEIN HIGH DEGESIBILITY (HPHD) SYSTEM

When it comes to Hydrolizing, Alloy recommends the Alloy HPHD (High Protein High Degestibility) system, Here's why: 

  • Higher Protein Due to short cycle times
  • Higher Digestibility Again due to short cycle times
  • Less Equipment Imagine being able to hydrolyze the feathers form 250,000 birds per day in one (1) Hydrolyzer!
  • Less Horsepower Shorter cycles, less equipment and elimination of discharge conveyors result in lower Electrical costs
  • Enclosed process means significantly less odor in the facility and less load on the Odor Control System
  • Lower Cost per ton do more with less, Less Energy, Less Manpower, Less Equipment, Less Space
  • Compact system utilizes less space in your facility
     

The Alloy HPHD can increase the value of your mean, increase your capacity while reducing you cost per ton all while producing the highest quality meal.

The system begins with Mechanical Dewatering of the feathers and blood, cutting the mass to be processed nearly in half. Next we fill the hydrolyzer and hydrolyze the product and then we use the pressure of hydrolyzation to "blow" the meal to the hydrolyzed product bin, cycle time is 60 minutes; fill, hydrolyze and ready to blow the feathers to the Hydrolyzed Protein Bin awaiting transport to the Dryer.

Give Applications a call and let's walk you through your new system or fill out the applications sheet and we will you contact already familiar with your needs.

Alloy Dewatering Press

Regardless of the balance of your process, you owe it to yourself to mechanically dewater the product prior to processing.
Dewatering will:

  • Reduce Energy Costs
  • Reduce the process cycle time
  • Improve Hydrolyzing of the Product
  • Increase Process Capacity
  • Improve your bottom line
Flexible Utilization

Batch Hydroyzer Discharge

When the HPHD system is used for feathers or hair, the traditional door is not used and replaced with a specialized knifegate valve as shown above. The Batch Cooker/Hydroyzer then discharges through the valve and into a stainless pipe which encloses the discharged product in the pipe until it reaches a specialized cyclone called a Flash Chamber which spins the feathers until the velocity drops and they drop in to the bin below. The gases that created the pressure escape from the top of the cyclone and are transported to the odor control system.

RAW PRODUCT BIN

There are two categories of Alloy Raw Feather Bins. The style you need will be determined by how your feathers arrive, by truck, off a dewatering screen, or in totes or barrels. In addition, the volume of feathers processed in a day and the capacity of feathers processed will also impact the bin design you need.

Receipt and transport of Feathers and Hair can present a challenge due to their tendency to "ball" creating a large mass of product making transport difficult. The Alloy RAW PRODUCT BIN is designed to simplify your process. Regardless of your need of a Truck Dump or what we call the Bob-Cat styel bin The bin utilizes a live bottom drag-bar bed and rotating picker, fluffer shafts, on the discharge which break-up the "balls" of product and discharge the product to a collecting conveyor in small portions easing transport.

Flexible Utilization

Raw Bin Discharge Pickers

The discharge of the Raw Product Bin is equipped with three (3) rotating picker shafts as seen above to separate the product into smaller portions of the product to ease transport of these products that can otherwise be problematic.

HYDROLYZED PROTEIN BIN

The Alloy hydrolyzed protein works equally well on Feathers or Hair and has several design features to keep you processing:

  • Reverse repose - avoiding bridging

  • Dual Drives - providing metering and redundancy

  • Heavy Inline Reducers - designed to take the load and handle the rigors of 24 hour per day processing

DRYING
