New WEDA Container boasts small feed amounts, huge impact
Dammann & Westerkamp GmbH (WEDA) introduces a new container for liquid feeding systems, which enables the dosification of smallest feed amounts for pigs, and boasts "maximal efficiency due to an application-oriented construction", says leader of WEDA's Development Department, Ralf Meyer.
The QXS features a cuboid-shaped sump of the container and the modular construction manner of the proven QS container wall system. This standardisation facilitates container sizes with a volume of 650-1,650 litres in maximal construction stage.
The newly developed agitators with floor-level "minimal stirrers" attached under the floor bearing guarantee the desired maximum of homogenous feed. The agitators operate close to the wall and the special construction of the agitators prevents de-mixing of the feed.
Due to the use of different cable cross sections, the technology can be used for piglet feeding as well as for the feeding of sows and fattening pigs. With a sump with a 50-outlet and the new corresponding accessories, the system operates in accordance with the proven WEDA piglet feeding system, Conticomp. The 90-outlet corresponds with the liquid feeding container.
The flow prevents feed splashes during the mixing process, an important feature of container hygiene.

It is one of the global market leaders in the domain of liquid feeding, operating in almost 50 countries on all continents.
