Cargill Animal Nutrition Plant
Pietermaritzburg (Kwazulu-Natal), South Africa
The USD $12.5 million expansion of this premix facility increased plant capacity exponentially. The extension helped improve the quality of the poultry, ruminant, swine, pet food vitamin, mineral premix and base mix products marketed under the Provimi brand throughout sub-Saharan Africa.
Because a moisture-free environment was required, PENETRON ADMIX was used in the 4.5 m (15 feet)-deep concrete basement structure that houses the electrical weighing and bagging equipment. The construction joints were sealed with PENEBAR SW waterstop; the form tie holes were treated with PENECRETE MORTAR and a final sprayed-on layer of PENETRON slurry was used to provide a durable waterproofing.
