Having one of its core competence in the drying and thermal processing of petfood, REICH Thermoprozesstechnik GmbH has been a member of the Petfood Competence Network since autumn 2021. Their drying, cooking, smoking, baking, cooling and maturing systems have been known for decades for their consistently high processing quality, the best production results and easy handling. It makes no difference whether you would like to process meat, fish, poultry, cheese, veggie products or pet food – REICH’s engineers always find the ideal solution for your requirements.
The demand for pet food, especially for dried snack products and pet reward items, is steadily increasing. The products are diverse and demanding in terms of processing. Efficient drying and proper heat treatment are therefore prerequisites for successful, tasty and sensory-appealing products. Decisive for sustainable solutions are resource-saving processes and economical production.
For the pet food industry, REICH can supply different, customized batch ovens in all sizes for drying and baking of various products such as extruded snack sticks, extruded meaty treats or different kinds of meat by-products.
For example, the REICH AIRMASTER® UKQ AIRJET is the world’s best performing cross-flow universal unit. This unique and extremely powerful system works with horizontal air flow and has been designed specifically for lying products on grids or in trays. Even with narrow floor distances and closely packed goods, an even air and heat distribution can be achieved with short process times using high loads. Dry petfood snacks can be produced consistently on a trolley with up to 38 levels.
