Ross to attend the 2023 Petfood Forum

Ross Industries Inc, a leading processing equipment provider for the pet food industry, is gearing up to attend the Petfood Forum, one of the industry’s most significant annual events. Ross will showcase their innovative products and services to industry professionals throughout the event.

Magurit Starcutter 318
The Magurit Starcutter processes up to 8 tons per hour at product temperatures as low as -22 F.

Ross has been providing pet food processing equipment for over 60 years. With a focus on innovation and quality, Ross has become a trusted partner for many pet food manufacturers. They specialize in high-volume product reduction machines that can quickly process deep-frozen drums, blocks, or other product formats into a variety of product shapes, such as slices, chips, cubes, strips, or ground products for further processing. Their products and services help manufacturers achieve their production goals while maintaining high food safety and quality standards.

At this year’s Petfood Forum, Ross will feature the Magurit Starcutter. The Starcutter is designed for continuous high-volume reduction of frozen products at very low temperatures (-22 F) while maintaining a high-quality cut. The Starcutter achieves its premier cutting process through its unique blade design, integrated block hold-down device, and cutting drum geometry. The C-CUT blades flake the product while simultaneously making transverse cuts, resulting in much smaller pieces in a single pass through the machine. This unique cutting style preserves the cell structure of the meat and maintains product temperature, resulting in better binding results. The resulting product is especially suitable for further processing in mixers for wet pet products for formed products for freeze-dried pet snacks.

The Petfood Forum runs May 1-3 at the Kansas City, Mo. Convention Center. Pet food industry professionals should visit booth 2832 to learn more about Ross’ latest products and services. Register for the Petfood Forum at: https://wattglobalmedia.swoogo.com/PFF23
