5-6T/H Floating Fish Aqua Feed Plant in Iran

Origin of the 5-6 t/h floating fish aqua feed plant in Iran project

This is an expansion project of an Iranian aquatic feed factory.

The client of this 5-6t/h floating fish feed mill project is mainly engaged in the production and sales of livestock and poultry, fresh water, and special water feed, and also involves aquaculture business.

The feed company of the client of this project originally had a livestock and poultry feed production line with an annual output of 120,000 tons and a shrimp feed production line with an annual output of 15,000 tons.

5-6 t/h floating fish aqua feed plant in Iran project

In order to better integrate production, sales, and raw material resources, reduce comprehensive technical costs, and expand and stabilize the company's market share, the customer of this project invested US$800,000 to add a 6t/h aquatic expanded feed production line to the existing feed workshop.

After the aqua feed mill project is completed and put into operation, it will have an annual production capacity of 25,000 tons of extruded feed.

5-6 t/h floating fish aqua feed mill layout

This 5-6t/h floating fish feed production plant in Iran project will add an expanded feed production line at the reserved location of the original shrimp feed factory.

Process flow of 5-6t/h floating fish aqua feed plant in Iran

The production line process designed by RICHI for customers is as follows:

  1. Raw material reception and initial cleaning: Soybean meal and other raw materials are sent to the bucket elevator via a scraper conveyor, lifted to a cleaning screen to remove debris, and then removed through a permanent magnet cylinder to remove ferromagnetic debris and transported to the batching bin. This process will produce dust, waste straw rope, sand and gravel, etc.
  2. Primary batching, mixing, primary crushing, and secondary crushing: Various raw materials are weighed and batched under computer control and then enter the double-shaft high-efficiency mixer for primary mixing. The mixed materials are transported into the pulverizer for secondary crushing.
  3. Secondary batching and mixing: Various auxiliary materials are weighed and batched under computer control, and then enter the mixer together with the primary premix for secondary mixing.
  4. Extrusion: The mixed materials enter the warehouse to be expanded, undergo high-temperature treatment through the floating fish feed machine, and use steam conditioning to mature the feed and achieve a certain uniformity.
  5. Drying: After puffing is completed, it must be dried to remove moisture.
  6. Grease spraying: The dried materials are screened and mixed evenly with grease through a spraying machine.
  7. Air transportation: After spraying is completed, it enters the cooler to cool and air-dry.
  8. Screening: From the elevator to the grading screen, the qualified products enter the packaging process. This process will produce unqualified products.
  9. Packaging and warehousing: finished products are automatically stacked by robots and palletizers and transported to the warehouse for storage.

Environmental protection measures

It can be seen from the engineering analysis that this 5-6t/h floating fish aqua feed plant in Iran project has adopted more effective pollution prevention and control measures based on the characteristics of pollutant emission, and all types of pollutants can be discharged up to the standard:


Exhaust gas

The dust generated during the crushing process of the 5-6t/h floating fish feed mill plant in Iran project is processed by the "pulse dust collector + spray tower" and then discharged through the 40-meter-high exhaust pipe.

The total amount of organized dust emissions from the two crushing processes is 0.337t/a, the emission rate is 0.0842kg/h, and the emission concentration is 1.65mg/m3, both of which can meet the "Comprehensive Emission Standard of Air Pollutants" .


Solid waste

The solid waste of this 5-6t/h floating fish aqua feed plant in Iran project will be properly disposed of and will not have any adverse impact on the local environment.



Corresponding noise reduction measures have been taken for each noise source in this Iran floating fish food processing line project, mainly focusing on building sound insulation, supplemented by distance attenuation, and rationally laying out fish feed production equipment to achieve factory boundary compliance.

Why build floating fish aqua feed plant in Iran?

Iran's aquaculture production has increased significantly in recent years, and the country is now the world's third largest supplier of caviar and third in the world in sturgeon farming and processing.

Iran has also made good progress in trout farming and is currently the world's largest producer of rainbow trout. The country's annual fisheries and aquaculture production will exceed the target of 1.505 million tons.

The average consumption of seafood reached 12.1 kilograms per capita last year, an increase of more than 50% compared with a few years ago. Supporting aquaculture and encouraging seafood and white meat consumption to reduce the annual import of 150,000 tons of red meat has become a policy of the Iranian government.

build floating fish aqua feed plant in Iran

Seafood products account for nearly 10% of Iran’s annual agricultural export value. In the past six months, the country has exported more than $80 million worth of seafood, a 20% increase compared to the same period last year.

Golestan Province in northern Iran is one of the country's main areas for the production and breeding of aquatic animals and seafood (especially shrimp). About 80% of the shrimp it produces is exported abroad.

The prosperity of the aquaculture industry will inevitably drive the development of Iran's aquatic feed industry. Not only the processing of fish feed, but also the processing of shrimp feed is very promising in Iran.
