Pet Food Processing

Whether it’s wet or dry, processing pet food can be a challenge. It requires carefully balancing a demanding set of storage requirements with the sort of production line that’s capable of processing huge volumes of produce.

Work with us, and we’ll design for you a customised pet food production line that combines a high throughput with stringent quality assurance processes. And what’s more, because our machines are so efficient, we’ll enable you to vastly increase your yields without increasing your running costs.

Machinery for Pet Food Processing

We have multiple solutions which will help your production line, specifically designed for the pet food market. From raw materials through to packed goods we have a solution to meet your needs. We can design and install everything you need to move your pet food products through your factories – safely, efficiently, and in the large volumes.


Grading Conveyors

Suitable for fines removal and slithers, broken, oversized, undersized, different fractions, or otherwise unsatisfactory produce. Ideal for the pet food production as it is a gentle process and you can sort by various different sizes on the same machine (up to 4 sizes). We have worked with many pet food companies to place these in their production line to sort their dry pet food and kibble.

Multihead Weighers

In our experience optimising the feed to a multihead weigher can lead to the fastest return on investment in the industries we work in. We can save 5% giveaway across your line and our conveyors are energy efficient and easy to hygiene.



A combination of a conveyor and a storage system. If your weighers are down and you are continuing to manufacturing the produce, you will need somewhere to store them.

Vibratory Conveyors

Vibratory conveyors are superior to standard conveyor belts as they are quieter, more compact, more efficient, and much easier to clean and service. They also have gentle handling and we have developed a contact surface specifically for the pet food sector.

If you need to split your factory over multiple levels we have many different options to elevate and lower your products.

Spiral Elevators – can safely move your products to different levels without compromising their integrity

Bucket Elevators – make it possible to move your produce between different levels. And the conveyor systems have much smaller footprints

Swan Neck Conveyors – allow you to make the most of your available space without compromising on speed, efficiency, or safety

Laning Conveyor

Laning and Alignment

The system is loaded at the back in a disorderly state, but by utilising our 3-stage system of descrambling, aligning and laning we can put your products into a uniformed formation before it feeds into the next processing stage. We have developed laning conveyors specifically for the pet chew market

Distribution Systems

Product flows through the main line distribution conveyors where each of the “junctions” can be called from the multihead weighers to deliver product. This ensures no starvation and all the multihead’s are replenished on demand with ready to pack product.
