Powder Blending

Chicken Farmers in the UK

EVERYBODY loves clean bedding and it seems the nation’s chickens are no different!

As bespoke contract manufacturers and packers to the general chemical industry and specialists in powder blending, Grotech Production Ltd gets asked to produce all kinds of products. One of the more unusual has been a bespoke biological formulation for decontaminating chicken bedding.

At Grotech we tailor our services to meet the needs of our customers. While capable of providing a complete service from formulation development through manufacture to pack and despatch, in this case our brief was to take the ingredients provided by the customer, blend them and pack into pails.

The blended powders include enzymes which digest the ammonia contained in the chicken’s manure within the bedding. This not only reduces the pungent odour of the ammonia but protects the wellbeing of the birds by eliminating the risk of burns.

We have been powder blending for this particular customer for several years while they grow their business in the UK. Our flexibility in being able to produce as little or as much of a product as required is something which attracts customers looking to develop their business or a certain aspect of it in targeted areas.

As well as full scale production runs utilising our range of specialist powder blenders which enable us to vary batch sizes from 50kg to 1,500kg, we can supply product samples for testing of the finished product plus pilot scale batches.

We can process raw ingredients supplied in kegs, sacks or FIBCs and are able to add them to the powder mix by pre-sifting or kibbling to ensure consistency. Once blended the finished product can be packed into containers of all shapes and sizes ranging from 50g to 1,000g in size  and pouches or tubs to kegs and FIBCs in variety.

If your customer needs them palletising in a certain way, no problem – just let us know what they require and we will oblige, including boxes or collars for maximum protection during overseas transit.
