PLANT PROFILE

AN AFFINITY FOR

Pet Food Processing
Rely on the Affinity® Dicer for challenging pet
food applications. The Affinity overcomes highfat content, cold temperatures, and moisture
rich products.
Process preformed logs or fabricated
meats into strips, dices, or shreds.
25 HP (18 kW) motor delivers maximum power.
Ruggedly constructed for harsh
production environments.
Sanitary, stainless steel design.
Feed-assist conveyor.

Cooked kibble is cut off the extruder die plate and travels through
a pre-dryer to form a thin crust on the outer part of the kibble.
Product is then transferred to a uniquely designed finish dryer
before completing the remainder of the processing steps and
being packaged.

Large product input.
Requires limited,
routine maintenance.

specific low temperature. All ingredients, whether fresh or
dry, are tested before they are unloaded. The Certificate of
Analysis (COA) provided by the supplier is verified in the
DogStar Quality Assurance Lab and all ingredients must be
approved by QA before they are received into the system.
Once received, fresh ingredients are typically processed
into finished product by the next day.
DogStar's innovative, custom, kitchen-wide control
system they call WINK, meaning "window into the
kitchen," communicates from one process to another
and controls the flow of the entire processing system and
validates each ingredient added to a batch. Dry ingredient batches and fresh ingredient batches are prepared in
advance and stored in holding tanks. "Once we have a
proper quantity, the extruder operator will start the extruder and then the fresh-ingredient and dry-ingredient
areas work to keep up all day and stay ahead of the extruder," Arnold says. "WINK is the brains, but the extruder is the heart of the operations. Once we get that
heart started, we want to keep it consistently beating the
correct rhythm all day long and that gives you the best
efficiency and quality."
