PCM Hycare™ in Petfood Processes

PCM Hycare™ in Petfood Processes   Advances in industry and technology interfere in many aspects of our daily lives and the world of pets is no exception. The humanisation of pets and a significant increase in the number of pet owners are some of the main drivers of the pet food market in Europe. It has been found that the demand for natural and organic pet food has increased since the last few years and is expected to continue in the coming days, as pet owners are becoming very conscious about the health of their pets. The number of pet owners in Europe has been steadily increasing, driving the pet food market. The number of pet households on the Old Continent has increased by 20 million in the last nine years and now stands at 91 million. The main reason for this increase is the social factor and the therapeutic effect that animals have on humans. Pets provide companionship, emotional support, reduce feelings of loneliness, reduce stress levels and help us to increase our social activities. It also contributes to self-esteem and positive emotions, especially for children. Moreover, even in some countries, such as Spain, there is legislation that recognises pets as «living beings endowed with sentience» and no longer as things. In fact, there are many who consider them not only their best friend, but also a member of the family, sometimes even the most beloved member of it. All these arguments are very compelling reasons for companies in the pet food business. Customers want to offer the best to their pets and, therefore, companies want to provide the best food and reach the hearts of consumers. Thus, pet food has specialised and improved towards more premium and natural formulas, without forgetting functionality (specific diets to address the problems of these animals that are living longer and longer) and indulgence, as a reward, snacks or treats. In this context, brands such as PCM offer innovative products in their line of pumps. Two outstanding models are:   Hyfeed The PCM HyFeed progressive cavity pump with Moineau™ technology is ideal for transferring highly viscous, heterogeneous fluids with or without particles, pasty or even sticky and bacteriologically sensitive fluids. This pump is particularly suitable for the fresh food and cosmetics markets. It has been designed in compliance with food recommendations and requirements to avoid any retention zone and to facilitate cleaning. Versatile and robust Designed for food use 316L stainless steel Simple maintenance Pressure: 24 bar [348 psi] ü Flow rate: 52.5 bar [348 psi] ü Flow rate: 52.5 bar [348 psi Flow rate: 52.5 m3/h [231 usgpm] ü Inner dimensions of hopper: 263 x 263 x 263 mm [263 x 268 mm Inner hopper dimensions: 263 x 150 mm, 350 x 240 mm, 518 x 349 mm [1.5 x 1.5 in.

Consumers are looking for premium and natural foods to meet their pets’ needs. Like businesses, they want to be competitive in a world undergoing so many changes in terms of innovation.

Farmaforum, Foodtech and PMH2, the last three major events of the year

Farmaforum, Foodtech and PMH2, the last three major events of the year Trade fairs are crucial events in the business world, where companies and professionals meet with the purpose of exhibiting our products, services or technologies, establishing contacts and building bridges to new business relationships. At Técnica de Fluidos we greatly value the exhibition opportunities generated by these events, where we find strategic networking opportunities that allow us to continue growing. This year has been a challenging one for TDF, in which we have sought to get even closer to our customers by participating in key celebrations across a wide range of sectors. In the last quarter alone, we have been at three major events, each of them a must-attend for professionals in their sector. We are talking about Farmaforum, Foodtech and PMH2. This year, Farmaforum celebrated its ninth edition, consolidating its position as the most important congress for the Pharma sector in general and for the Biopharmaceutical Industry and Laboratory Technologies in our country in particular. The success of past editions has allowed Farmaforum to evolve and this year it has had a large number of specialised conferences: Nutraforum. Biotechforum, Cosméiticaforum, Cannabisforum and Health&Research Forum. This was the third time that Técnica has attended this important event, exhibiting everything from peristaltic pumps to dosing, instrumentation and filtration equipment. Alimentaria FoodTech was another of the major events of 2023 that we could not miss. The exhibition that drives innovation in the food and beverage industry brings together the main players in food production, processing and preservation at the Fira de Barcelona. With a cross-cutting approach, this global trade fair presents the latest developments in the sector and becomes the meeting point for leading companies, SMEs, exhibitors and international visitors. It is also attended by sector associations, technology centres and institutions that further enrich this unique experience. PMH2, the Hydrogen Sectorial Meeting, was our last event of the year and the meeting place for the key players in the technological development of hydrogen. This event has been a great opportunity to learn about the latest trends in this field and exchange knowledge, bringing together experts, researchers and professionals interested in exploring the latest opportunities and challenges related to hydrogen. This edition of the Sectorial Meeting represents a great opportunity to dive into the exciting world of hydrogen and learn more about its potential in various industries. All these experiences have been an opportunity for professional growth and development. In short, participation in trade fairs is essential for companies looking to grow, expand and stay competitive in a constantly evolving market. WhatsApp LinkedIn
