Shrimp feed plant technology

Shrimp feed can be produced by two methods, pelleting process or extrusion process, depending on the dietary of the shrimp species. For the majority of the global markets, especially Asian markets, feed pelletizing solutions are still highly recommended.

RICHI also places a high level of importance on the advancement and innovation of our extrusion technology in order to meet the ever changing needs of extruded shrimp feed producers.

Complete Shrimp feed plant process design

RICHI customized shrimp feed plants are designed to produce pellets in wide diversification in physical properties, shape and density to feed various shrimp species.

The prawn feed plants are made up from modules combined with focus on simplicity in operation, energy efficiency, flexibility in processes, high controllability and traceability.

(Here is just a detailed description of the shrimp feed pelletizing process. Since the shrimp feed extruding process is basically the same as the floating fish feed production line process, you can refer to the RICHI floating fish feed production line process.)

complete shrimp feed production process design
  • ① Raw Material Receiving And Cleaning System

This section consisting of tip hopper, mechanical conveyors, and elevators into storage bins. Raw material such as soybean meal, corn, fish meal, and other grain or powder is sieved to remove any impurity and metals.

  • ② First Grinding System

It’s an optional step for coarse material. First grinding system will lower the energy needed for ultra-fine grinding. This section is a size reduction process for raw materials that contain large particulates or grains by feed hammer mill grinders.

  • ③ First Mixing System

The first mixing system is used for dry material mixing to stabilize the following process. Storage bins are used for the temporary storage of raw materials. The material will be dosed based on the formula. In the shrimp feed mill plant, proportionally weigh dry ingredients by batches based on every formulation.

  • ④ Second Grinding System

This is the final size reduction in the system. It is common to use a pulverizer for producing ultra-fine powder. It’s the second grinding process that grinds the formulation into finer powder with fineness up to 80 mesh 95% pass.

  • ⑤ Second Mixing System

Water, oil, fat and other liquid material will be added. This will help to hydrate the material before the pelleting process. This is the step where the mixed recipe is ready.

  • ⑥ Pelleting System

Pelleting starts with pre-conditioning, adding steam to further hydrate, and cooking the material before entering the pelleting chamber to be formed into pellets.

The shrimp feed mixer feeds down through a feed hopper into the feed screws which continuously feed the ingredients into the following pre-conditioner system. The configuration of the pre-conditioner will depend on the type of ingredient that we produce. A specially designed shrimp feed pellet machine die and roller shell with the right compression ratio is set to produce the compact and tough pellet with higher PDI shrimp pellet feed.

  • ⑦ Post-Conditioning And Drying System

This process is designed to prolong pellet cooking by providing a hot temperature to avoid condensation. Depending on the moisture of the pelleted feed, a shrimp feed dryer can be incorporated into the production system to lower the moisture of the pellet to a shelf-stable moisture level.

shrimp feed plant equipment
  • ⑧ Cooling System

Cooling section utilizes ambient air to cool down the hot pellet from the post-conditioner (or dryer). Thorough cooling is needed to prevent condensation inside the packaging. Shrimp feed pellet cooler lowers the temperature of the hot pellets to + 3℃ of room temperature by utilizing the ambient air.

  • ⑨ Pellet Crumbling System (Optional)

Shrimp feed pellets are conveyed into storage bins before either being packaged or being turned into crumble in the pellet crumbler machine. Shrimp pellet feed can be processed by pellet crumblers to produce smaller pellets products. (Sizes between 20 to 60 mesh) Fines will be recycled to the shrimp feed pellet machine for re-use and undesired bigger pellets that pass through the sieve will be re-crumbled again.

  • ⑩ Screening System

All pellets will go through vibration sieve and square plansifter to remove all irregular shrimp feed pellets.

  • ⑪ Bagging And Sealing System

Finished shrimp feed pellets will be placed in bags or other transportation vessels to the reseller or customer site.

shrimp feed plant Foundation and basement calculation

Foundation and basement calculation

Our 3D design program can calculate the static machine loading on each of the steel structures. You can consult the machine-loading data with the local civil engineer. To build a sturdy machine tower, the engineer will measure the soil structure, wind speed, and other factors to determine the type and size of the foundation or basement.

Shrimp Feed Plant Layout And Structure

shrimp feed plant layout and structure

RICHI offers shrimp feed plant layout and structure design drawings according to customer requests. We always designed the most optimum design conforming to the local safety regulation of the country. You can also use these drawings for communication with the local contractor during construction.

Design and placement of bins and tanks

Design and placement of bins and tanks

The design of the bin tank is essential to ensure smooth material transportation through the outlet holes and chutes. The placement of the bins and tanks is important to guarantee a smooth material flow for optimal production timing.

shrimp feed plant sites Installation & Commissioning and Training

Installation & Commissioning and Training

Placement and installation of machines hold a role in ensuring a smooth production flow. RICHI works together with the customer and the construction company to ensure that the proper machine installation.

The whole shrimp feed mill process control system has to follow check with HMI/control panel software. Before whole process testing, we have to test the motor for each machine individually.

After finishing the machine installation, our expert team will commence a thorough pre-run inspection, machine run-testing, operator training, and know-how technology transfer.
