Advantages of floating fish feed pellet making machine
The application of RICHI 4-5t/h aquatic floating fish feed pellet making machine in the production process of aquatic feed can replace the traditional single-screw extruder machine for fish feed. It can improve the use width of feed raw materials and feed production quality, and meet the production needs of high-grade extruded aquatic feed.
For the production process of ordinary aquatic feed, adjust the crushing process (addition of a superfine pulverizer), and upgrade the process with RICHI special twin-screw floating fish feed making machine for aquatic products, which can expand the production grade of extruded aquatic feed and realize the process upgrade of the aquatic feed factory. to satisfy the market’s needs.

How to choose a floating fish feed pellet making machine?
When building a new aquatic feed mill or transforming a raw feed production line, when selecting an extrusion pellet extruder, first consider its type, and select a matching extrusion fish feed floating pellet making machine according to the feed production capacity.
Especially when renovating an old factory, it should also consider whether the production capacity of the original crusher, fish feed dryer, and fish pellet cooler is sufficient.
Richi Machinery suggests that when selecting a floating fish feed making machine, the following issues should be considered:
(1) extrusion effect
For aquatic feed, a good puffing effect is that the particle forming rate is above 99%, the particle pulverization rate is less than 1%, the pellet floating rate (sinking rate) is 100%, the pellet size is uniform, the color is consistent, and it has good water resistance.
In addition, the floating type aquatic feed is kept in the water for 10 hours, and the sinking type aquatic feed is kept in the water for 3 hours without collapsing.
(2) floating fish feed pellet making machine price
The equipment investment cost of the twin-screw floating fish feed pellet making machine is 1.5 to 1.7 times that of the single-screw pellet extruder with the same production capacity; the cost of wearing parts is about 1.5 times that of the single-screw fish feed making machine ; 1.5 times that of the screw extruder machine.
However, what needs to be considered in the end is: due to the good operational stability of the twin-screw feed machine, in the process of feed processing, the startup cost is less, the waste of water vapor is less, the labor cost is less, the heat transfer efficiency is high, the yield is high, and the kWh output with high indicators and low cost of accessories, the final production cost is still much lower than that of single screw.
(3) Service life
Floating fish feed pellet making machines from different manufacturers have different service life due to different structural features and materials used. Therefore, when selecting a fish pellet machine, special attention should be paid to the wear resistance of some wearing parts, and whether its structural design is reasonable, and whether it can achieve the purpose of reducing screw wear.
In addition, when selecting a feed pellet machine, it is also necessary to consider whether the machine can really achieve the purpose of saving energy and reducing consumption. For raw materials that have not been ultrafine powder, the wear of the wearing parts will be more serious, especially the twin-screw fish feed pellet making machine.
(4) Control mode
Extrusion processing is mostly manual or semi-automatic, and the quality of extrusion products has a lot to do with the quality of the operators themselves.
Artificially controlling the addition speed of feed, steam and water and the temperature of the product will cause the quality of the granular product to be unstable, especially the inhomogeneity of moisture, so that the moisture content after drying cannot reach the target, and substandard products will be produced. Feed mills bring greater economic losses.
Taking an aquatic floating fish feed pellet making machine with an output of 6 tons per hour as an example, when the water content of the pellets exceeds the safe storage water content, the pellets will become moldy.
When the water content of the pellets reaches the safe storage water content, the economic loss of the aqua feed mill for one year will be reduced by every percentage point of water reduction. will amount to $140,000.
The fully automatic control method adopts advanced computer to control the flow of materials, water and steam, automatically add according to the settings, and implement alarms for all failures, eliminating the influence of human factors and unavoidable product quality fluctuations related to the operation of floating fish feed making machines.

- ① Raw Material System
Raw material such as soybean meal, corn, fish meal, and other grain or powder is sieved to remove any impurity and metals.
- ② 1st-grinding System
Optional step for coarse material. Pre-grinding will lower the energy needed for ultra-fine grinding.
- ③ 1st-dosing & Weighing & Mixing System
The material will be dosed based on the formula. In the floating fish feed plant, usually, the material will be processed by batch.
- ④ 2nd-grinding System
Post-grinding is the final size reduction in the system. It is common to use a pulverizer for producing ultra-fine powder.
- ⑤ 2nd-dosing & Weighing Mixing System
In this step, trace ingredients such as vitamins and minerals will be added and mixed.
- ⑥ Extrusion System
The floating fish feed pellet making machine will used in this section. Extruding system starts with pre-conditioning and hydrating by adding steam and water or other liquid. The material will undergo high pressure, high temperature, and shearing in the barrel, and then be formed by mold at the outlet.
- ⑦ Drying System
Drying system in extrusion technology is a very necessary section, wet pellets will enter the dryer and come out as dry pellets. No matter what type of fish feed dryer you have, good moisture control is the most important feature that a dryer needs.
- ⑧ Coating System (Optional)
It is common to coat the extruded fish feed pellets with oil or enzymes to increase the nutrient value of the pellets. Depending on the liquid coating level, a drum coater or vacuum coater can be used.
- ⑨ Cooling System
Cooling section utilizes ambient air to cool down the hot pellet from the aqua feed dryer machine. Thorough cooling is needed to prevent condensation inside the packaging.
- ⑩ Bagging System
Packing section gives protection to the extruded pellets and also give easiness to handle and transport to customer’s hand. We can provide all kinds of metering and packaging equipment.
Whether it is floating fish feed production line or sinking fish feed production line, or pet feed production line, livestock and poultry feed production line, if you need to process extruded feed or pellet feed, please contact us to customize your plan. （You can follow RICHI on YouTube）
