Feed Pelletizing has been, and continues to be, a popular processing technique in feed manufacturing. In basic terms, pelletizing converts a finely ground blend of ingredients into dense, free flowing agglomerates (pellets).
Benefit of feed pelletizing:
Pelletizing operations are not without cost, but the cost is more valuable in improved plant profit as well as animal performance. There are many reasons used to justify the good market and customer expectations of feed pelletizing, but it may be appropriate to list just a few:
1. Improved animal performance
2. Decreased feed wastage
3. Reduced selective feeding
4. Improved bulk density
5. Better material handling characteristics
6. Destruction of deleterious organisms
Animal feed pellet plant process
The whole process of feed pellet line is highly automatically controlled by controlling center. The whole process mainly includes the below processes.
Crushing process – Hammer mill
●In the feed processing process there may be a number of ingredients that require some form of processing. These feed ingredients include coarse cereal grains, corn which require particle size reduction that will improve the performance of the ingredient and increase the nutritive value. Amisy FSP series Hammer mill is able to produce a wide range of particle sizes, it work with any friable material and fibre and very easy to use. It is used for grinding raw materials by large and medium livestock and aqua feed mills
Mixing process – Feed Mixer
●Efficient mixing is the key to good feed production. The feed will not be the balanced formulation, so it should be well mixed before pelletizing process. Amisy Horizontal Feed mixer is a mechanical means of achieving this. It consists of a series of paddles or metal ribbon blades mounted on a horizontal rotor within a semi-circular trough. The blades move the material from one end of the mixer to the other, tumbling it as it goes. It can mix wet ingredients or mixtures of wet and dry materials, as well as mixing dry ingredients.
Pelletizing process – Feed Pellet mill
●Pelletizing is a key process to the production of high quality animal feeds as it ensures that the feed formulation is in the correct quantities for all that eat them. It should be mentioned that impurities in the raw materials like metal, may damage the die and rollers of wood pellet making machine, so we equipped demagnetizer to remove the impurities.
Each bite of a pellet made by our pellet mill will have the same designed formulation ensuring all the stock are feed as intended.
Cooling and screening process
●Cooling and screening process
The Pellets from pellet mill may exit at up to 88°C and 17-18% moisture. The temperature of pellets must be quickly reduced to make the moisture level to 10-12% or less for proper storage and handling. Pellets must therefore be cooled and dried. Our cooler Adopt counter-flow cooling principle, pellet cooled fully and equally. The temperature of the pellets after cooling is not higher than room temperature +3-5 degree.
●After cooling process,the pellets will be bagged or stored according to your need and requirement.The packing process is effectively handled by our Semi-Auto Packing Machine.the finished feed is weighed by the computer,then pneumatically discharge into the bags.Weighed bags would then travel along a conveyor where machines are available for sewing the tops of the bags in which dry feed may be placed for storage.
●All the process above will be controlled and monitored by our advanced computer controlling system. The control center is collected in accordance with the actual value and the current settings for contrast, which will ensure the stability of the whole processing in order to give full play to the pellet plant production capacity and to prevent plugging.
