Wet Feed

We have established a leading reputation in the Irish pig industry. We have been involved in some of the largest piggery developments in Ireland and the United Kingdom. We can offer a complete package or part packages depending on your particular requirements. We can assist in from design stage right up to installation and after sales service.


SKIOLD supplies a complete program of mixing tanks with capacities ranging from 1500-8000 litres. The mixing tanks are equipped with a drain which helps to reduce remaining quantities, as well as a cleaning door with a mounted magnet to remove any metallic foreign bodies. Rest-tanks can be integrated with the main mixing tank for storage of remaining quantities. Furthermore, they will be an incorporated part of the pipe cleaning system, in which old recipes are being “pushed” out by new ones. Both the rest-tanks and mixing tanks are equipped with automatic cleaning systems.

A safety device is placed on top of the tank to prevent accidents. The tanks have been designed with focus on longevity coupled with fast and easy cleaning.


Installations are equipped with well proven pumps with high performance and operational reliability. Centrifugal pumps in stainless steel can be supplied with 4.0 or 5.5 kW motors.

SKIOLD is very focused on energy consumption and maintenance costs


SKIOLD offers a complete program of feed valves which among others consists of feed valves, section valves and ball valves. The ball valves are used especially in challenging conditions, where feed needs to be pumped over long distances. The new DM5 feed valve has been developed to withstand the future demands of secure and easy operation.

The valve is equipped with a stainless rough-boring angle and stainless bolts, which makes it easy to mount. The rubber membrane is manufactured from two layers of rubber, which are vulcanized around a heavy fibre net; ensuring a powerful membrane with an optimal life span.


Liquid grinding is actually the only way to handle wet corn. The intake/grinding of the wet corn is handled by a liquid feeding system, DM6000. The corn is dosed via a gas-proof silo into the grinding chamber through a magnet trap. Fluid is added to the liquid feed tank prior to the grinding. The fluid helps the corn through the grinding in the mill and prevents material build-ups.

The system is self-cleaning, and when the grinding is completed, the system is cleaned internally with clean water; thereby, feed remains and condensation problems are avoided.
The result is excellent feed hygiene which strengthens the general health.

Limited wearing and no water spillage are also key advantages in terms of reducing feed costs.
