Jan. 12, 2012, Waterloo, IA – CPM will debut new enhancements for use in pellet mills
at the 2012 International Feed Expo and International Poultry Expo in
Atlanta later this month.

CPM, the world’s leading supplier of process equipment and technology for the animal feed,
oilseed, biofuels and human food-processing industries, will debut its
new pellet mill enhancement and launch its social media plan at the
International Feed Expo (IFE) and International Poultry Expo (IPE),
collocating at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Jan. 24-26.

As the world's largest manufacturer of pellet mills, CPM has led the
way in developing specialized pellet mills and dies that consistently
yield high production levels with excellent pellet quality.

“CPM is pleased to offer feed and poultry customers the ability to
produce higher quality pellets at a lower cost through our new pellet
mill enhancement,” says Scott Anderson, general sales manager for CPM.
“Our lineator remote roller adjustment can now be coupled with roll speed measurement—allowing customers to monitor the speed of the rolls and provide better roll-slip management to prevent plugs.”


In pelleting, a larger die and more steam provide for a better pellet
at a lower cost; but too much steam can cause roller slippage and die
blockage. More than 20 years ago, CPM provided a great solution to this
problem with the development of the CPM lineator—making it possible to
remotely control the distance between the roller and die surface while
the pellet mill is in operation.

Now, CPM’s roller speed measurement combined with the CPM lineator
allows for cost-efficient, higher-capacity production with the same
pellet quality, but with improved steam addition control and fewer
overloads and blockages.

At Expo, CPM will be showcasing this new pellet mill
enhancement as well as other CPM equipment important to animal feed
production, including roller mills, hammermills, microscales and
feedmill automation.

“We’re also excited to roll out our social media plan at Expo to
better connect with our customers through LinkedIn and share the latest
CPM and industry news through Twitter, Flickr and YouTube,” says
Anderson. “Our CPM Users Group
on LinkedIn has been helpful for customers to share CPM parts and
equipment they have for sale, pellet production tips and more. The CPM
team always looks forward to Expo each year because we get to meet with
our customers and friends in person. This year we look forward to
welcoming them into our social media world too.”

To generate some fun and excitement at CPM’s expo booth #1029, CPM is
having a social media sweepstakes contest to give CPM Twitter followers
the opportunity to win great prizes, including an iPad and a free CPM
test center sample ($1,000 value). Customers can follow CPM on Twitter @CPMRoskamp, on YouTube at CPMRoskamp, on Flickr at CPMRoskamp, on LinkedIn at CPM Roskamp Champion or join the CPM Users Group.
