Raw materials : Cereal,corn,wheat,grass,stalk, straw,alfalfa, oil seed meal/cake, fish meal, etc.
Animal feed production line are the extensive process for cereals and agricultural by-products,oils,molasses, vitamins and fats and mineral to give a complete balanced formula which covering the nutrition requirements for different animals in their life stages .The science of feed processing industrial involves knowing the characteristics of the food that includes content, fiber, and moisture ,the supplier using the accurate measurements in the feed pelleting to make perfect project for any scale feed pellet plant.The human population is constantly growing on the world, so the food requirements to feed these people is also on the rise.Besides more and more people possesses improved affluence, which also leads to higher needs for animal products, such as eggs, milk, meat, etc.Intensive production of animal feed pellets is of urgent need due to the prosperous breeding industry.
Animal Feed Pellet With Several Advantages
1.High feed hygiene: The temperature is 81° or more easily obtained during the feed pelleting process, it can destroy the most common bacteria and fungi,like Salmonella in raw materials. The heating system will send steam to feed pellet machine by conditioner ,through automatic feeder and high pressure die ,the materials be steam curing and pressing into pellets.
2.Increased nutritional value: The digestibility of the feed is increased as a result of the heat treatment and the subsequent cooling in the feed pelleting process resulting in improved performance of the livestock (feed conversion rate)
3.Waste avoiding: The pellet transportation will be much cleaner and less dust than meal feed,the pellet do not get stuck in pipes, bins, etc.The pellet storage time is also longer for pellets than for meal feed,it can reduce much more waste.
4.Easy dosing: Using animal feed pellet makes dosing easier and more accurate,the user can add additives in the mixing steps.
5.No separation: In general, pellets have a 15% higher bulk density compared to the meal,heavy particles such as minerals and the like do not segregate, hence it is not possible for the animals to be selective,it will make their feed much more balance.
The feed crusher can grind the raw material into the required powder. The usage of crushing system is increasing the specific surface area of feed which is good for animal digestion and absorption and improving the processing performance of raw materials. We supply four types of feed grinders. Hammer mills are suitable for small-sized or medium-sized feed processing plants. The water drop hammer mills are usually used in large-sized and medium-sized feed factories. The ultra fine feed grinder is designed for grinding raw materials of special aquatic feed.In this process, auxiliary dust removing system will be needed. It not only saves energy, but also prevents dust spillage, lowers material temperature and improves crushing efficiency.
◆Feed Material Mixing Process→Feed Mixer
Mixing is considered to be one of the essential operations in feed pellet processing. Lack of proper mixing may lead to reduced diet uniformity, affecting the feed pellet quality. The mixer machine can be equipped with atomizing spraying system to add needed liquids additive, which can improve the feed pellet quality.
◆Feed Pelletizing Process→ Feed Pellet Mill
Feed pellet mill is the main equipment of the whole production line. There are two common kind of feed pellet mills: press type feed pellet mill and extruding feed pellet mill. If you want to produce sinking feed pellets with large quantity, the ring die feed pellet mill is the ideal choice. If your wanna floating type feed pellet , you can choose the extruding feed pellet mill.
The feed pellets pressed out by the feed pellet mill are hot. They can’t be crushed, screened or packed immediately. Counterflow feed pellet cooler is designed to cool or dry the feed pellets. It can decrease the temperature and moisture of the feed pellets, preparing for the pellet crushing.Different poultry, livestock or aquatic feed pellets are with different sizes. Some big ones should be crushed into small ones.
◆Feed Pellet Screening and Grading Process→ Feed Pellets Grading Machine
The crushed feed pellets are with different sizes, and there may be some powder. This process is mainly to sort out the inappropriate pellets and powder and send the standard pellets to next process.
◆Feed Pellet Packing Process→ Automatic Weighing and Packing Machine
The feed pellets will be be packed for transporting, storing or selling. Automatic weighing and packing machine can weigh and pack the pellets automatically with high accuracy,the packed weight can be adjusted according to market demands .
