Weda Damman & Westerkamp has developed a fully automatic feeding system for liquid feed for suckling pigs – the Nutrix+. A feeding device supplying various types of liquid feed automatic and targeted.
Parallel, the Nutrix+ ensures maximum hygiene by its purification process using acids and bases.
A sensor recognizes, when the stock of feed is running empty and pumps new feed into a trough at adjustable speed.
For this specific application Weda was looking for a pump able to convey feed as well as being compatible with aggressive cleaning agents.
A specifically manufactured Nirostar from Zuwa was the pump of their choice. The Nirostar, adjusted to flow rate and pressure, ensures a smooth transport of the animal feed and is resistant to approved detergents – the ideal solution for the Nutrix+.
