Pine Bluff Poultry Feed Mill - Pine Bluff, Ark.
Tyson Foods contracted Ibberson to provide complete turnkey work for their new poultry feed mill in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. The mill includes fully automated batching at 140 TPH, pelleting in two lines at 120 TPH, rail receiving at 600 TPH, truck receiving at 350 TPH, barge unloading at 600 TPH, grinding at 120 TPH, and loadout at 400 TPH.
The project included engineering, site development, foundations and slipform construction millwright installation, as well as installation of railroad, ancillary buildings and liquid systems.
The site includes an 83-foot x 41-foot x 194-foot tall feed mill with an attached 80-foot x 100-foot warehouse, with employee welfare rooms and offices, three 28-foot diameter silos, and a 44-foot diameter silo.
The facility has a grain storage capacity of 10,700 tons, 2,600 tons of finished feed storage in two loadout driveways, and 3,200 tons of ingredient storage. The two loadout driveways each have a multiple discharge conveyor and truck scale which eliminates the need to reposition trucks during loadout.
