Animal proteins manufactured by the rendering process are an important source of nutrition for animal feed and pet foods but are high risk raw materials for oxidation and microbial contamination. Fats should be stabilized with antioxidant blends and microbial re-contamination after sterilization must be prevented with an antimicrobial preservative.

BioMask

Powerful liquid neutralising agent for heavy odours in abattoirs and rendering plants. Odours are generally produced by the proliferation of micro-organisms and their metabolites during the decomposition of raw materials prior to cooking. Biomask counteracts and neutralises the offensive odours which are released during the cooking process.

BUDS

Bitek has become an expert in pumps and equipment to ensure the effective application and consistent dosing of our liquid products. We have developed a range of dosing systems which fall under the umbrella of the Bitek Universal Dosing System (BUDS). These systems are used in feed mill mixer applications, dosing applications for rendering plants, full fat soya, hominy chop treatment and spray bays for vehicle disinfection. BUDS range from manual systems to fully automated dosing systems depending on the requirements of the plant.

GPC8

A powerful glutaraldehyde based disinfectant which offers protection from a wide range of disease causing microorganisms. GPC8, a patented formula is highly effective against bacteria, viruses and fungi and provides residual activity on clean surfaces for up to 8 weeks after use. It is non-staining and being non-corrosive is suitable for vehicle disinfection. The high level of surfactants ensures it is active in the presence of organic matter. Registered with Act 36 and DEFRA approved.

MYCONOX

Liquid mould inhibitor and antioxidant for control of gram negative pathogens and for protection against autoxidation in poultry by-product meals.

Oxiban

Multistage antioxidant specially designed for the prevention of autoxidation in all animal feeds and feed ingredients. Oxiban is a synergistic blend of antioxidants and chelating agents which stabilises and extends the shelf life of fats and vitamins, maintaining nutritional value and preventing feed refusal. The biological chelating agent used still maintains the availability of the micro-elements to livestock. Used in export feeds or where a long shelf life is required and in animal tallows and oils.

Oxipet

Synergistic antioxidant blend which does not contain ethoxyquin specially designed for the prevention of autoxidation in all pet foods and pet food ingredients. Oxipet also contains a chelating agent which stabilises and extends the shelf life of fats and vitamins, maintaining nutritional value and preventing food refusal. The biological chelating agent used still maintains the availability of the micro-elements to the pets.

Pumps

Bitek supplies a range of pumps depending on the dosing application and the product being applied. We supply multistage vertical centrifugal pumps, horizontal centrifugal pump, adjustable chemical diaphragm pumps, adjustable peristaltic pumps and adjustable water driven pumps.

SALBANOX

Liquid Salmonella inhibitor and antioxidant for control of gram negative pathogens and for protection against autoxidation in poultry by-product meals. Salbanox is a specially designed blend of organic acids, emulsifiers, surfactants, antioxidants and chelating agents suitable for easy spray application in a continuous rendering processing plant. The homogeneous product ensures distribution of all actives including the antioxidants throughout the meal and reduces the application to only one pump.

SALBANOX PET

Liquid Salmonella inhibitor and antioxidant for control of Gram negative pathogens and for protection against autoxidation in animal by-product meals being used in the pet food industry. Salbanox Pet is a blend of organic acids, emulsifiers, surfactants, antioxidants and chelating agents suitable for easy spray application. The homogeneous product ensures distribution of all actives throughout the meal and reduces the application to only one pump. Does not contain ethoxyquin.
