03.02.2020 Rotary valves for dosing of aquafeed

TBMA Europe, Noordwijkerhout, the Netherlands, has shipped a consignment of 16 rotary valves  to JT electric in the Faroe Islands. This well-known supplier of marine components and equipment is based in the heart of the harsh and demanding environment of the North Atlantic. It takes advantage of this unique location to make some of the world’s best products for the aquaculture industry. When designing its custom-made feeding barges for fish farming, JT electric uses TBMA rotary valves for the dosing and transport of the fish feed.

With the increasing growth of saltwater fish farms, the demand for automatic feeding systems is also expanding. The expensive high-quality feed must end up in the water undamaged. Every single pellet must be handled gently to avoid breakage and crumbling. Therefore, the TBMA HGRD200 blow-through valves are equipped with an adapted rotor, ensuring that the product is transported and dosed with minimal damage. The valves are reported to give high value for money and are of a robust and reliable design. Their easily demountable execution guarantees quick (dis)assembly and facilitates maintenance.

“We use TBMA rotary valves because the tests we performed on the valves proved them to be of good quality. Also we appreciate the cooperation with the dedicated and skilled TBMA sales team. In the process from the first contact, our relationship with TBMA has grown stronger and closer”, commented Ólavur Thomsen, project manager at JT electric.
