fish feed pelleting machine Conditioner selection

How many layers of conditioner does the sink fish feed pelleting machine need?

  • Generally speaking, the fish feed pellet mill can be divided into single-channel conditioner, double-channel conditioner and three-channel conditioner;
  • According to its structure, it can be divided into ordinary conditioner, spacer conditioner and differential diameter conditioner. device.

For the processing of sunken fish feed, double-layer and triple-layer conditioners are required.

Two layers of conditioner are adequate, but three layers of conditioner are better. Customers can make the final decision according to their own raw materials, formulations, product needs and budget.

pellet machine for fish feed price
  • Due to the long contact time between the steam and the material, the double-channel conditioner and the three-channel conditioner have more sufficient hydrothermal treatment, and their conditioning and aging effects are obviously better than those of the single-channel conditioner.
  • Spacer conditioner has better conditioning effect than common conditioner due to less energy loss. Due to the full contact and mixing of steam and materials, the differential conditioner has a good conditioning effect.

Therefore, in the production of aquatic feed, it is best to choose fish feed pelleting machine with a three-channel conditioner or a differential diameter conditioner, or at least a double-channel conditioner or a spacer conditioner.

fish feed pelleting machine Ring die selection

At present, in many countries, the majority of aquafeeds are still hard pellets. Therefore, the performance of the fish feed pellet machine has a great influence on the quality of the granules.

Quantity plays a very important role. There are many types of fish feed granulators on the market, and their performances are quite different.

fish feed pellet making machine ring die
aqua fish feed pellet machine ring die
  • In particular, the selection of the pressure roller and die parameters of the feed pellet machine should pay attention to the thickness and compression ratio of the die. Compared with the die used for livestock and poultry pellet feed, the die used to make aquatic pellet feed must be thicker and have a higher compression rate.
  • The hardness of pellets formed by different ring dies increases significantly with the increase of compression ratio. Choosing a suitable compression ratio ring die can produce pellets with suitable hardness.
  • The length of the pellets has a significant impact on the pressure-bearing capacity of the pellets. For pellets with the same diameter, if the pellets have no defects, the longer the pellet length, the greater the measured hardness. Adjust the position of the cutter to maintain a suitable pellet length, so that the hardness of the pellet can be kept basically the same.
  • Pellet diameter and section shape also have a certain influence on pellet hardness. Figure 8-shaped cross-section has stronger pressure bearing capacity than circular cross-section, and the measured hardness value is also larger.
  • In addition, the material of the fish feed pelleting machine ring die also has a certain influence on the appearance quality and hardness of the pellets. The pellets produced by ordinary steel ring die and stainless steel ring die are significantly different. (Maybe you are interested in:5t/h aqua feed plant

Complete sinking fish feed pelleting technology

Generally speaking, if you want to start a large-scale fish feed processing, you need to build a fish feed production line, which requires many workshops and equipment to form a feed processing system.

The process plan of making materials into pellets and the selection of excellent machinery and equipment are directly related to the quality of water feed. Nowadays, most of them use ring die  pellet machines to pellet feed, and use fish feed hammer mill, fish feed mixers, pellet coolers, screening machines, packing scales, etc. as auxiliary equipment.

The aquatic feed making process mainly includes feed raw material reception, raw material removal of impurities and iron, crushing or fine grinding, batching, mixing, transportation, cooling, screening, weighing and packaging, etc.

how to build fish feed plant

Complete sinking fish feed production process:

(1)Grinding section

The raw material crushing process is one of the main processes in the aqua feed production line. The crushing particle size of the raw material determines the surface area of the feed composition.

Within a certain range, the finer the particle size of the raw material, the better the stability of the processed feed pellets. In the fish feed pellet production process, the appropriate crushing particle size should be selected according to the requirements of the fish feed pelleting machine.

Generally, the crushing particle size of raw materials for common aquatic feed (such as carp, grass carp, silver carp, etc.) is 40-60 mesh, and the crushing particle size of raw materials for special aquatic feed (such as prawns, eels, soft-shelled turtles, etc.) should reach more than 80 mesh.

Moreover, the post-crushing process can be used in the production of most freshwater fish feeds, and sometimes the pre-crushing and post-crushing processes can be used comprehensively, especially for materials that require micro-grinding. The advantages of using this process are more obvious.

(2) Batching device

Batching refers to the process of accurately weighing a variety of different feed materials by using a specific batching device according to the requirements of the feed formula. Batching equipment generally includes various batching scales, batching bins, manual feeding ports, mixers and subsequent conveying equipment, and its core is batching scales (including feeders).

A reasonable batching device can enhance the batching accuracy, improve feed quality, improve feed water stability, and help shorten the batching cycle and enhance production management.

The key to the process composition of the batching device is the correct selection of the batching device and its coordination with the batching bin and mixer.

At present, common process devices have multiple warehouses and one scale, multiple warehouses with two scales, multiple warehouses with three scales, one warehouse with one scale, and multiple warehouses with several scales, etc. Manual platform scale batching and continuous quality batching processes can also be applied.

(3) Mixing device

Mixing is the mixing of various materials under the action of external force, so that the proportion of each component in each small volume in the stockpile is consistent, and it is an important production link to ensure the quality of aquatic feed.

Most of the aquatic feed processing adopts the secondary mixing process, and for the selection of the secondary mixing mixer, generally the horizontal ribbon mixer is used for the first mixing, and the double-shaft mixer with a coefficient of variation of mixing uniformity CV≤5% is used for the second mixing. Paddle efficient mixer.

The selected mixer should mix the materials evenly in a short period of time, so as to ensure that the mixing time does not exceed the crushing time, and it can be equal or similar to the batching cycle of the batching scale to enhance the stability of feed water.

(4) Conditioning

Conditioning is a process of improving physical and chemical properties through heat and humidity treatment. This process helps to increase feed cohesion and plasticity, ensure fine structure of feed, improve hardness and stability of aquatic feed in water. After the powder feed is conditioned, the water content increases and the temperature rises, which is convenient for pelleting by fish feed pelleting machine.

Controlling the temperature, time, pressure and moisture of conditioning is crucial to the quality of feed conditioning. The increase of tempering temperature can enhance the water resistance of the feed under certain conditions.

In production, the appropriate temperature should be selected according to the characteristics of raw materials and the stability of feed water. Usually, the tempering temperature of aquatic feed should be controlled at 80-95 °C is preferred.

Within a certain range, the longer the tempering time, the better the gelatinization degree of the starch in the raw material, the higher the cohesiveness, and the better the quality of the feed. Feed factories can use the method of first pelleting and then curing and tempering to enhance the quality of aquatic feed water. stability.

During granulation, the steam pressure has a great influence on the stability of the pellet feed water, but from the comprehensive consideration of boiler safety production and energy consumption reduction, the steam pressure should be 0.35-0.40Mpa. As for the influencing factors of tempering moisture, the moisture content of general raw materials should be controlled at 16% to 19% when they are put into the mold.

(5) Pelleting

Granulation is the process of forming powdery compound feed or single raw material into granular feed through extrusion. Granulation technology has a great influence on the water resistance of products but it is easy to be ignored.

Under the premise of certain raw materials, formula and process, the smaller the length-to-diameter ratio of the ring die, the shorter the feed stable time, and vice versa, the longer it will be.

At present, the most commonly used feed pellet machine in fish feed mills is the ring die fish feed pelleting machine. The fish feed factory should reasonably select the ring die, adjust the distance between the die and the position of the cutter according to the requirements of different aquatic feeds, the characteristics of the raw materials and the processing technology.

Conditional aquatic feed mills can also repeat the pelleting process to improve the water stability of the feed. The quality of the granulation effect is closely related to its granulation time, strength, temperature and other factors.

fish feed pellets

The fish feed pelleting machine with double conditioner has a better granulation effect, which can prolong the passage time of the material in the conditioner, improve the maturity and increase the stability.

Controlling the granulation intensity can make some feed granules compact in structure, reduce the contact area between feed granules and water, effectively prevent the infiltration of external water, make it water-resistant for a long time, and improve stability. During granulation, the feed temperature has a great influence on the water resistance of the granules.

Under certain conditions, the higher the feed temperature, the better the water resistance. 

  • If the temperature is too high, the humidity of the material will be too high, resulting in blockage of the die hole;
  • if the feed temperature is too low, the water resistance will be poor, and the power will also be increased consumption, reducing economic benefits.

(6) Cooling after pelleting

Cooling uses flowing natural air to reduce pellet feed temperature and simultaneously reduce moisture. After cooling, the fish feed pellets change from the damp, hot and soft state just after fish feed pelleting machine granulation to a pellet feed with proper hardness, suitable water content and normal temperature.

During production, the appropriate cooling air volume and cooling time should be selected according to the characteristics of the material and the type of cooler, so as not to affect the hardness and wear resistance of the pellets and reduce the stability.

fish feed production plant for sale

The hardness of the cooled feed increases, which can effectively prevent the entry of external water and enhance the stability of the pellet feed in water.

Usually, the temperature of the sunken fish feed just discharged from the fish pellet cooler is 6-9℃ higher than the room temperature, and the water content after cooling is 12%-12.5%.

(7) Screening

After cooling, the pellets are sieved to remove the powder, and the powder is sent to the fish feed pelleting machine, but the powder ratio should not exceed 5%, because the processing process is irreversible, and the increase in the proportion of recycled feed will reduce the stability of the pellets in water.

For the screening of sinking fish pellet feed, the grading sieve preferably has two layers of appropriate screens. Feed processing technology has complex and changeable factors affecting feed quality.

In order to improve quality and increase output, it is necessary to fully consider various factors in the production process, constantly analyze and adjust the process and parameters, and constantly renovate the equipment.
