floating fish feed manufacturing plant project report

With the rapid development of the aquaculture industry, the traditional breeding methods are far from meeting people’s needs. The requirements for aquatic feed are not only balanced nutrition, good stability of the feed in water, etc., but also the environment in which animals live——The quality of water bodies puts forward more stringent requirements.

Therefore, the requirements for aquatic feed processing technology are getting higher and higher. Better feed technology means better feed quality, higher feed processing efficiency and better breeding effect.

Process Design of  floating fish feed production line

According to the characteristics of many varieties of aquatic feed, large changes in raw materials, high requirements for crushing fineness, and poor fluidity of materials, RICHI floating fish feed making line generally adopts secondary crushing and secondary ingredient mixing in the production process, and then undergoes puffing, drying, Spraying, cooling, crushing and screening to complete the processing of aquatic extruded feed.

floating fish feed extrusion process

(1) Cleaning of raw materials and primary crushing

There are generally two forms of raw materials used in aqua feed mills:

  • Powder, no coarse crushing is required. Directly enter the cleaning sieve for impurity removal, and then perform magnetic separation to participate in the first batching;
  • Coarsely crushed material – pellets. After impurity removal and magnetic separation, it is coarsely crushed by a pulverizer, and then enters the batching bin to participate in the first batching.
  • Individual raw materials, such as shrimp shells, can be directly separated into the bin to be crushed after being magnetically separated without the initial cleaning.

The first coarse crushing is the pretreatment process of superfine crushing in aquatic  floating fish feed production line. Its main purpose is to reduce the particle size difference and variation range of materials, improve the working condition of the superfine pulverizer, and improve the working efficiency of the superfine pulverizer. , To ensure the stability of product quality.

floating fish feed producing line

(2) The first batching and mixing

The first batching is mainly the preparation of bulk raw materials, that is, the preparation of relatively large materials in the formula.

The first batching and mixing are also the pretreatment process of ultrafine pulverization, which is mainly to reduce the variation range of material particle size, improve the working condition and efficiency of the pulverizer, and ensure the quality of the product.

(3) Secondary grinding and mixing of secondary ingredients

In the secondary crushing process, the primary mixed materials are lifted by the elevator and then enter the bin to be crushed, and then enter the fine pulverizer. The material after the second crushing is subjected to secondary batching and mixing. Various raw materials enter the secondary mixer after secondary batching.

In the secondary mixing process, various materials must be fully mixed, and the coefficient of variation CV is less than 7%, which is the key to ensuring product quality.

floating fish feed line use extruder machine

(4) Extrusion and granulation process

In the extrusion process of floating fish feed production line, the material is extruded by an extruder to form wet and soft granules (moisture content is 25% to 30%). Due to its high moisture content, it must be dried in a dryer to make the material dry. Moisture drops to around 13%.

In the previous process, the nutrients that should not be added can be supplemented by external spraying, which can also improve the palatability of the feed and reduce the powder content.

The optimum working temperature for this process is around 80°C. After the material passes through the external spraying system, it can enter the counterflow cooler for cooling.

(5) Finished product processing and packaging

After being transported by the bucket elevator, the cooled material is crushed and enters the rotary screen for classification. The grading sieve is generally a two-layer sieve:

  • The material on the lower sieve is the finished product, which can be directly put into the finished product warehouse, and then weighed and packaged.
  • The material on the upper sieve needs to be returned to the crusher for crushing.
  • The material under the lower sieve is generally finely crushed material, which can be returned to the batching bin as waste.

The above floating fish feed production line process is the conventional configuration of the current aquatic extruded feed processing technology. Using this process, extruded floating feed and extruded sinking feed can be produced.

fish feed factory bagging system

Nowadays, as a new type of aquatic feed mill technology, the extruded feed processing technology has been recognized by more and more feed manufacturers.

Floating fish feed extrusion technology is the development trend of feed processing industry in the future, especially in the application of aquatic feed and pet feed, it will replace the traditional hard pellet feed processing technology.

Equipment for Floating fish feed production line

Generally speaking, the core production equipment of a floating fish feed factory is hammer mill, ultrafine pulverizer, mixer, fish extruder, dryer, cooler, spraying machine, screening machine, packing scale, etc. The selection of equipment plays a vital role in feed production and ensuring feed quality.

Advantages of extruded pellet feed

The extruded pellet feed is loose in texture and has a porous structure. The extruded pellet feed can float on the water surface for a long time, which is convenient for the breeder to observe the feeding situation of aquatic animals.

Adjust the feeding amount in time according to the amount of feed intake, and remove the excess feed out of the breeding pond to reduce the pollution of the feed to the water quality.

extruded feed

Extruded pellet feed is produced by fish feed extruder and floating fish feed production line. During processing, the materials are processed under high temperature, high pressure, and high shear. On the one hand, some harmful fungi and toxins in the raw materials are killed or destroyed, and on the other hand, the structure of the materials changes.

Therefore, after extrusion, the starch and protein in the raw materials are easily digested and absorbed by fish and shrimp. Extruded pellets are more stable in water and not easy to collapse and lose.

Hello, I would like to know the prices of the 20t/h floating fish feed complete production line machines, for the moment I’m in Ethiopia in a project but I am planning to open the factory in March 2024. Best regards.

The 20 ton floating fish feed production line is a large-capacity feed processing system, which is relatively complicated and involves various processes and plant layout issues. Generally speaking, the production line price of this output is more than 2 million US dollars.
For the construction of a complete feed production line, we will closely track the progress of the project from the customer consultation stage to process design, equipment processing, installation, and commissioning to support customers.

I need a quote for the production line for floating fish feed and poultry feed production line capacity from 5 tons to 8 tons per hour.

This is a combined feed production line, that is, two or more feeds are processed in one production line. Before providing a quotation, we need to know some questions, such as:
Are the two feed processes the same? Does the poultry feed also adopt the extruding process? What are the required quantities of floating fish feed and poultry feed? …
There are many possibilities for this type of production line, depending on the requirements. Because, our technical consultants need to communicate with you further, so as to configure the floating fish feed production line that really suits you. (For more details, follow us on YouTube)
