The USD 20M, state-of-the-art project, located at the University of Illinois South Farms, will accelerate advancements and expand horizons in technology and scientific discovery in feed ingredient utilization, new processing technologies, and improved efficiency of food production.

Among these are the Vortex Gravity Vee Diverter, Vortex Titan Slide Gate, Vortex Seal Tite Diverter, Vortex Aggregate Gate, and various accessories, controls, and switches to increase valve performance and life span.
When it opens, the facility will drastically expand the capabilities of the more than 40 faculty members and hundreds of students whose work and research depend on the Feed Technology Center. Testing and calibration of equipment are expected to take place this summer to be fully operational by October 2020.
