Design a first-of-its-kind animal nutrition production facility for two branded products using a patented production process. Two of the most complex structures on site housed the receiving and pelleting processes, each building bearing substantial equipment loads.
The receiving process uses a hard car unloader: a large piece of equipment used to break up and unload DDGs from a rail car. The hammermill/pelleting building, containing three full pellet lines, was designed to support over 200,000 lbs of equipment. The team also designed a compact conveying system to make the transfer between processing systems more efficient.
