Fliegl Agrartechnik has developed a dumper that not only offers the perfect blend of power and performance but also boasts a wealth of innovative features for optimum use in agricultural applications


The new TMK 279 combines an impressive design with a permitted total weight of up to 24 tonnes. This robustness allows it to transport large volumes of bulk materials and ensures maximum durability during everyday use on the field.

With a basic capacity of approximately 31 cu m and an impressive 40 cu m when fitted with a 500 mm attachment, the TMK 279 dumper serves as a highly flexible solution for transporting a range of different materials. The ability to expand the capacity makes it a versatile tool for the agricultural sector.

The standard Profi frame boasts an attractive design thanks to its painted finish, which guarantees a long service life and reliable resistance to external influences. The hydraulically sprung draw gear ensures optimum adaptation to different loads, effectively compensates for different coupling heights on towing vehicles and helps to minimise vibrations.

With its hydraulic chassis, the TMK 279 offers sophisticated technology for maximum stability in even the most demanding conditions. The standard 710/50 R30.5 tyres in conjunction with the 410 x 180 axle configuration ensure optimum soil protection, traction and manoeuvrability on various different surfaces. The TMK 279 dumper is approved for speeds of up to 40 km/h, which enables efficient and time-saving travel on public roads. Moreover, the dumper is also ideal for transporting light bulk materials and is capable of handling even the most challenging conditions with very wet ground, thanks to its high-volume tyres and advanced chassis.

Overall, the TMK 279 dumper represents an optimum addition to the upper tandem dumper segment, offering the perfect combination of performance, innovation and versatility to satisfy the demanding requirements of modern agriculture.

Alfa Laval recently introduced the new Free Rotating Retractor, a highly efficient cleaning device that provides complete cleaning assurance and enhanced product safety, while also boosting uptime and productivity


While preventing contamination is a crucial element in the design of hygienic processing lines, manufacturers often face uncertainity when cleaning ducts, tanks and other confined spaces with hard-to-reach shadow areas. Alfa Lavals new dynamic and resource-efficient Free Rotating Retractor removes residues from the interior surfaces of hard-to-clean vessels, thereby ensuring 100% cleaning coverage in hygienic processing lines, like milk or infant powder plants. 

Preparing hygienic vessels quickly and economically so that all interior surfaces are spotlessly clean and ready for production is easy with the Free Rotating Retractor. The Cleaning-in-Place device remains sealed off from the product area during production, flush with the vessel wall. The spray head slides out, expelling cleaning media in a 310°-up spray pattern across the vessel surface. Upon completion of the cleaning cycle, the spray head retracts, and the vessel is production-ready.

The device also complies with FDA, EU and China regulations while securing good manufacturing and hygiene practices at dairy, food, beverage, home and personal care, and other processing facilities. For high-purity pharmaceutical and biotechnology processing lines, the Free Rotating Retractor UltraPure is the solution. This cleaning device also delivers up to 35% savings in water, chemicals and time for every CIP cycle compared to conventional static spray ball technology. Moreover, due to its streamlined construction, the device is also easy and economical to install, operate and maintain, resulting in a low total cost of ownership. 

“We remain tireless in our efforts to innovate to meet customer needs,” said Alfa Lavals Manager of Product Management, Tank Cleaning, Babak Shojaei

Feed millers around the world now have access to a biosecurity application that allows them to record past audits, identify areas of concern and establish a baseline for biosecurity, thus implementing sound manufacturing practices and adhering to regulatory biosecurity requirements


Anitox, a feed pathogen control specialist launched this free app to collect and present feed mill biosecurity audit records for all geographies and regulatory bodies. 

The company has given up the right to track user-given audit data, making the Feed Mill Biosecurity app the most secure and private offering available. App users can therefore be confident that their data is protected and private. The app is available on both iOS and Google Play stores and also mill managers to access a feed mill technologist with just the click of a button. 

"Auditing feed mills and amassing the evidence and data needed to produce meaningful biosecurity programmes can be a headache. For years our feed mill technologists have been walking facilities with customers, collecting evidence and preparing reports for regulatory and compliance bodies across the globe,” explained  Anitox’s global director of Nutrition and Live Production, Dr. Enrique Montiel, who further emphasised that the procedure had become significantly easier with the launch of the new feed mill biosecurity audit app. 

“Our team of feed milling technologists and technical specialists solve Salmonella, virus and other feed pathogen-related challenges on a daily basis; now that knowledge has been put the good use for the wider community. Having proven the technology with our loyal customers, we have decided it is too useful to keep to ourselves,” Montiel added.
