The European grain and animal feed industries descended on the Koelnmesse in Cologne, Germany for the VICTAM 2019 international exhibition. VICTAM International claims to be the world’s largest dedicated event for the animal feed processing industries and the exhibition is co-located with GRAPAS EMEA, which focuses on grain, flour and rice processing industries.
“VICTAM gave us an opportunity to meet industry professionals from across the world,” said David Hocking who manned the stand alongside metal detection specialist Joe Cetti. “We were expecting visitors to be mainly European-based, but there was also a strong contingent from Asia.”
Metal Contamination Solutions
The focus of the Bunting stand was proving solutions for the problem of metal contamination. Metal found in animal feed, grain and flour causes damage to processing equipment and is a food safety issue if found in the finished product. On the stand, Bunting displayed a range of Magnetic Separators and Metal Detectors including:
“There was significant interest in our strong Rare Earth Bullet Magnet,” said David. “The Bullet Magnet is one of the most widely used Magnetic Separators in dry bulk free-flowing applications.”
The Bullet Magnet is an efficient, cost effective device for extracting iron particles from within pipelines or gravity feed chutes and is designed for installation into vertical, or near vertical pipelines that carry grain or similar free flowing granular products.
“Exhibiting at international trade shows such as VICTAM is vitally important to expand our export business,” explained David. “We generated new leads and, by talking with industry professionals, we gained a greater understanding of the market. This in the field market research is precious.”
