The customer company is pioneer of shrimp feed plant in the eastern of Indonesia. The company produces various powder feed, pellet feed, extruded sea and freshwater aquatic feeds, which are sold all over Indonesia. Also the leader in deep processing.

This time, the client of this project built a new 2t/h shrimp feed mill in Indonesia. After many inspections and several revisions of the plan, he finally chose to cooperate with Richi Machinery, which stems from the trust in RICHI’s aquatic feed mill project.

RICHI aquatic feed machinery has always been recognized by the industry for its high-quality and high-efficiency image. The output of shrimp feed has increased by 10% compared with the peers. The output of Φ1.7mm shrimp feed can reach 2.2 tons per hour.

The service life of RICHI shrimp feed pellet mill ring die can reach 2500 hours, and the output can reach 6500-8500 tons. This project has also become another demonstration project established by RICHI in Indonesia.

Currently, this project is being installed. This project is a complete delivery project of Richi Machinery from process design, equipment layout, equipment selection, equipment manufacturing, and automatic operation control system. It is mainly used for the cultivation of South American prawns and wild prawns.

Indonesia 2 t/h shrimp feed mill features

  1. Adopts batching first and then crushing process, it is suitable for high-protein, high-fat and low-starch aquatic feed processing.
  2. Automatic batching system, equipped with 10 batching bins. The batching scale is controlled by the computer to achieve precise ingredients. The overall ingredient error ≤3 ‰.
  3. Double crushing system reduces ton consumption.
  4. Feed safety is an important line of defense that both customers and RICHI insist on. Energy conservation, environmental protection and sustainability have become the key to the joint creation of both parties. Equipped with SZLH series special granulation system for shrimp feed, with the help of special conditioning and host configuration for shrimp feed, it breaks through the influence of moisture in the whole process on the quality of pellets, and the stable production capacity of small particle size φ1.0 shrimp feed is 3-4 tons/hour; frequency conversion Type feed crusher, adjust the distance between the fast and slow rollers, and provide the basic guarantee for the production of high-quality shrimp feed.
  5. Using normal pressure vertical spraying system, it can automatically adjust the spraying sequence and spraying amount according to the formula change, which can not only protect the effective activity of heat-sensitive components in the feed, reduce the loss of nutrients, but also improve the appearance and density of pellets Sexuality also has a very good effect, high quality, high yield, low cost, low residue is well deserved;
  6. Equipped with automatic finished product packaging equipment, which effectively reduces labor costs and greatly improves packaging efficiency.

Process design and equipment configuration

The 2t/h shrimp feed mill in Indonesia is equipped with: material batching section, the first mixing & crushing section, second crushing & mixing section, pelletizing & cooling section and packaging section.

(1) Feeding & batching system

The grain is fed into feeding hopper, there is a setting dust removal device above the hopper, which can greatly reduce the dust generated during the feeding. The raw grain is then transported vertically by bucket elevator, after the initial clearance of pre-cleaner, The initial cleaning of the permanent magnetic cylinder, the grain is distributed by rotary distributor to different batching bins.

(2) First Mixing and Crushing section

The raw materials after each batch of ingredients are completed from scraper conveyors and bucket elevator to pre-mixing bin. The shrimp feed mixing machine is aimed to mix each batch of raw materials evenly, and then the mixed raw materials enter into the shrimp feed hammer mill for grinding.

(3) Second Crushing and Mixing section

Because the production of shrimp materials requires higher the crushing fineness of the raw materials, so the 2t/h shrimp feed mill in Indonesia is equipped with two crushing section. The first crushed raw materials are crushed by the water droplet crusher (2.5mm screen), the raw materials after secondary grinding (water droplet crusher (1mm mesh)) are put into pre-mixing bin for secondary mixing.

Each batch of mixed materials are divided into three stages:

  • The first stage of mixing begins when the materials enter the shrimp feed mixer, which lasts about 1 minute;
  • Then the premix is put into the small feed port to start the second stage of mixing, about 1 minute;
  • Finally, the grease is entered into the mixer through the grease adding system, and the third stage of mixing is started, about 1 minute.

(There are many types of greases added during the secondary mixing of the shrimp feed mill, so it’s equipped with many oil tanks, and the oil automatic ingredient system is achieved through the requirements added by the formula. In addition, the mixing machine is also equipped with small feed port, which can add premix according to demand.

(4) Pelleting system

After the material is mixed, the materials will be sent to the pre-pelletizing bin. After the pelleting mechanism, the material falls directly into the Pendulum stabilizer below for re-curing process, which can further improve the curing degree of feed pellets and improve the quality of pellets.

(5) Cooling & crumbling

The mature pellets enter into pellet cooler and pellet crumbler for crumbling (if the shrimp feed mill required size of shrimp feed pellet is small, the shrimp feed pellet crumbler will break the material; if the size requirements are larger, you can choose not broken), directly from bucket elevator lift vertical transportation.

Market expectation

Shrimp Feed Processing

In the past two years, Indonesia’s shrimp exports have been the most impressive among all Asian producers. Unlike many countries, in Indonesia, most of the largest shrimp feed producers are still local Indonesian manufacturers. Most feed companies in Indonesia produce a range of aquafeeds for various fish and shrimp species for Indonesian farmers.

Although there is competition in the shrimp feed industry and some regional markets are dominated by large multinational companies from Europe, the United States and Asia, many smaller local players still have a presence. This is the case in markets such as Indonesia and India, as well as smaller markets such as Brazil, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia and Venezuela.

shrimp farming

The client of this 2t/h shrimp feed mill in Indonesia project is an established aquatic feed processing enterprise in eastern Indonesia. Based on the good industry prospects in Indonesia, they invested in the establishment of a factory. In Indonesia, this investment is clearly very worthwhile.

Indonesian Shrimp Farming

The good prospects of the feed industry are of course based on the prospects of shrimp farming. Indonesia is one of the largest shrimp producers in Southeast Asia. In 2022, the Indonesian government announced that by 2024, it will increase shrimp production by as much as 250%.

Among them, the number of intensive ponds is expected to increase to 7,000 hectares, and the annual shrimp production will reach 280,000 tons; the shrimp production in semi-intensive ponds will reach 240,000 tons; and the production of traditional ponds is expected to increase to 286,000 hectares.

However, the increase in shrimp production requires not only the efforts of the Indonesian government, but also the development of the shrimp industry, including

1.5mm shrimp feed pellets
  1. Improve modern shrimp farms.
  2. Give policy and economic support to the shrimp industry, such as loans.
  3. Supply high-quality shrimp feed, adopt modern breeding technology and supply high-quality shrimp seedlings,
  4. The adoption of a sustainable farming model is a prerequisite for the development of the shrimp industry.

It is certain that shrimp feed mill in Indonesia will increase in the coming years, in which the expansion of intensive and super-intensive shrimp farms will play an important role. But other developments, such as: high-quality shrimp feed supply, high-quality seedling supply, infrastructure construction, will be challenges for Indonesia. In the next few years, Indonesia will definitely be a country that deserves the attention of everyone in the shrimp industry.
