Feed & Veterinary
Ametech commercialize additives for Feed and Veterinary applications in Italy, France and Spain.
Feed emulsifiers are tailor made products (Alkamuls ®) recommended to emulsify and solubilise lipo-soluble vitamins, fats, oils (straight or partially hydrogenated) and other actives.
Alkamuls SC/242: an Ethoxylated Ricinoleate registered as E 484 in the list of Feed Additives authorized by the EU; it is designed to emulsify mixture of Vitamin E + D3 + C; those mixture can vary on Vitamin ratios.
Ethoxylated Ricinoleate are also available under different moles of EO best fitting to the HLB of the formulations.
Standard manufacturing procedures:
for Feed: MPG or PEG + Alkamuls SC/242 (emulsifier / solubiliser) + Vitamins mixture (normally E, D3, C)
Alkamuls T/80: an Ethoxylated Sorbitan Oleate, Dioxane depleted.
Standard manufacturing procedures:
for Injectables preparations: MPG or PEG + Alkamuls T/80 (emulsifier / solubiliser) + Vitamins mixture
(normally E, D3, C) + water
Alkamuls 696 H: an emulsifier designed to formulate and manufacture calf milk replacer.
Carriers and Anticaking agents
Precipitated Silica and Sodium Alumino-silicates are amorphous inert mineral powders used as carriers and anticaking agents.
Tixosil (precipitated Silica) and Tixolex (Sodium Aluminosilicates) are suitable as:
carrier for liquid micropearls
carrier for liquid powders
carrier for liquid milled powders
anticaking agent for milled powders
Intermediate and auxiliary pharmaceutical grade
PEG: polyethylene glycols, pharmaceutical grades, ranging from 200 MW to 14000 MW; PEGs are used as Feed additives in several applications thanks to their non-toxicity, solubility in water, lubricant power and good physiological tolerability. PEGs are also soluble in many polar solvents as aliphatic alcohols, glycol ethers, aromatic hydrocarbons and are readily miscible with water, the solid types being less soluble in water with solubility decreasing by increasing of its MW.
MPG: mono propylene glycol, USP/EP grade, which according to Directive 2004/C50/01 can be used for cows and cattle dairy, for fattening calves, lambs, pigs, poultry and dogs.
- listed in the Community Register of Feed Additives (27th edition 05.05.2008) under the synonym
“Propane-1,2-diol (E 490)
- for use in Feed as a technological additive such as emulsifying agent, thickener, gelling agent and
White Mineral Oils pharmaceutical grade
A full range of pharmaceutical white mineral oils manufactured from highly refined paraffinic base-stock and processed to remove unsaturated hydrocarbons and sulfur compounds.
Pharmaceutical white mineral oils are used in Feed as lubricants in the preparation of pellets, cubes or blocks to improve their resistance to moisture, as de-dusting and diluent carriers to manufacture feed grade biuret complying to GMP.
Ametech offers different viscosity range from ISO 15 to 100, mainly BFR 0020 and BFR 0070, manufactured from highly refined paraffinic base and purified to remove unsaturated hydrocarbons and sulfur compounds.
