Livestock Feed Pellet Mill

The feed pellet machine is a kind of equipment mainly used to make animal feed, generally using biomass such as soybeans, forage, straw, rice husk, and corn as raw materials. After the material is crushed and stirred, the pellet machine will extrude them into particles with uniform size and neat shape. The smooth-grained feed processed by this machine has a smooth surface, moderate hardness, low-temperature rise during processing and can better maintain various nutrients inside the raw material. This machine is mainly suitable for the processing of fish, duck, chicken, shrimp, rabbit, pig, cattle, sheep feed pellets. The diameter of the particle size can be customized according to the needs of different growth periods of the farmed animals. This machine has a simple structure, low noise, wide applicability, it’s the ideal equipment for the livestock feed pellet.

Flat Die Livestock Feed Pellet Mill

The flat die feed pellet machine. Flat die feed pellet machine’s hourly output generally ranges from 60kg/h to 1300kg/h. Almost all small-capacity pellet mills for pellet feed can be called flat-die pellet mills. We often say that single-phase electric chicken, duck, goose feed pellet machines, single-phase electric pig feed pellet machines, single-phase electric cattle, sheep feed pellet machines, are all types of flat-mold feed pellet machines.

The flat die feed pellet machine has a vertical feeding port, which is convenient for feeding and the hardness of the poultry feed pellets produced is large. The feed is semi-ripened, and it is a good helper for granulation of free-range farmers, small feed processing plants, and small farms. Various pellet feeds can be flexibly produced according to the different mold hole diameters. Achieve the effect of multi-purpose one machine, high return rate and effectively improve work efficiency.

The principle of theflat die livestock feed pelleting machine

The main components of the flat die pellet machine are a flat round steel die and a set of freely rotatable grooved rollers. The raw material falls into the gap between the rollers under the action of its own gravity and the rotating distributor, and is crushed into the die hole by the rotating roller. Then the long cylindrical material is extruded from below the die hole and cut into pellets by the cutter. In the granulation process, the high temperature generated by the friction will kill the bacteria in the raw material, and will not affect the quality of the granulation.

Structure of the flat die livestock feed pellet mill

This machine is mainly composed of the power unit, inlet and outlet, press roller, and pressing plate. Among them, the power unit can be driven by an all-copper motor or a diesel engine. It is equipped with a geared motor, which can obtain greater torque while reducing the speed. The size of the discharge port can be customized according to customer needs.

There are usually two-roller, three-roller, and four-roller models of press rollers. The more the number of press rollers, the greater the output. The aperture range of the pressing plate is usually between 3mm-8mm. The smaller the processing diameter of feed pellets, the smaller the output.

The advantages of the Livestock Feed Pellet

  • Animal feed pellets are comprehensive in nutrition, animals are not easy to picky eaters, and the separation of nutrients is reduced.
  • Pelletized feed is conducive to full digestion, absorption and utilization of livestock and poultry, and improves the digestibility of feed.

The maize and soya bean meal (store & directly feed on ground) is sucked into the Grinding Machine and crushed into fine powder. Any other powder/soft materials, such as wheat bran, bone meal, microelement, vitamin, etc, which don’t need to be crushed, they can directly feed into the Vertical Mixing Machine from its feeding port. All materials are mixed uniformly and discharged into the hopper of Screw Conveyor then feed into Temporary Storage Silo by screw conveyor. By Screw Feeder, the mixed materials are uniformly and continuously feed into the Pellet Mill then produced into feed pellets. The pellets are discharged into the hopper of Belt Conveyor then feed into the Pellet Cooling Machine through Air Lock. With the cooling process, the fresh & hot pellets are cooled, the pellet temperature is not more 5 than the room temperature. The cooled pellets are screened by the Vibrating Screen, then they can be packaged.

This livestock feed pellet production line can be used for processing livestock, poultry and aquatic feed pellets, which is specially suitable for medium feed factory, breed farm or aquatic base. It has the better raw material versatility, which can be suitable for pelletizing many kinds of raw material, such as corn, broomcorn, wheat, beans, oil seed meal and other materials . And also, this manufacturing plant for animal feed has the features of low energy consumption and high production efficiency for larger profits. We provide free charge of installation, and training, factory designing, and timely after-sale service.

Ring Die Livestock Feed Pellet Mill

First, the ring die feed pellet machine. The ring die feed pellet machine’s hourly output is larger than the flat die feed pellet machine, generally between 1 tons-15 tons. Often used in conjunction with a variety of large and medium pellet units. Our common large-scale cattle and sheep feed pellet unit is the matching ring die feed pellet machine. Choose different models according to different output

The feeding port of the ring die feed pellet machine is small, and because of the setting of its model, it is often equipped with a uniform speed feeder or a forced feeder. Depending on the quality of the feed required by the user, a conditioner can be added. The conditioner is generally used together with the boiler. The water vapor generated by the boiler can fully mature the feed and can also supplement the moisture content in the feed. Ring feed pellet machines are generally selected for feeds that need to be fully cooked.

Working Principle Of Livestock Feed Pellet Machine

The working principle of the livestock feed pelletizer: The livestock feed pelletizing machine is a process of compacting the powdered feed and extruding the die hole into the pellet feed. First, the powdered compound feed is tempered with steam or water, and then compressed into columnar pellets with a feed pelletizer, and then the position of the cutter is adjusted to obtain the desired pellet size.

The above content is the working principle of a single livestock feed pellet forming machine, but generally speaking, the livestock feed pellet maker does not work alone, and is mainly used in the feed production line of the farm or the production line of the feed factory.

Applications Of Livestock Feed Pellet Machine

This type of livestock feed pellet making machine can be used for the processing of livestockfeeds such as pigs, cattle, sheep, rabbits, etc. It can also be used for the processing of other feeds, such as poultry feeds, aquatic feeds, etc., by adjusting the design of the conditioner and other pellet machine components.

In order to improve the sanitary requirements and palatability of feed, the simplest and most direct method is to pelletize the feed. This livestock feed pelleting technology has been widely used in the production of livestock.

With the increasing improvement and perfection of feed production equipment, the production cost is reduced. Further reduction, the application range of feed pelleting technology will also become wider and wider.

In addition to the above-mentioned advantages of pelletizing feed, pelletized feed by livestock feed pellet machine is convenient for long-distance transportation and long-term storage, avoiding picky eaters by animals, so to a large extent, it can also significantly improve the digestion and utilization of nutrients in the livestock feed.

Almost all livestock feeders agree that animals make better gains on pelleted feed than a meal ration. The most logical reasons are that the heat generated in conditioning and pelleting make the feedstuffs more digestible by breaking down the starches, the pellet simply puts the feed in a concentrated form, and pelleting minimizes waste during the eating process.

When pelleted feed is fed, each animal receives a well-balanced diet by preventing the animal from picking and choosing between ingredients. Tests have shown that most animals, if given the choice between the same feed in pellet or mash form will prefer the pellets.
