Process design of 16-20t/h animal feed mill in UAE

This 16-20t/h animal feed mill in UAE project includes two production lines, each with the same production process. The project purchases raw and auxiliary materials such as corn, soybean meal, and wine troughs, and processes them into finished products through crushing, stirring, mixing, aging, granulation, cooling, and packaging.

The specific animal feed production process is introduced as follows:


Raw material receiving process

Equipment: Silo

Process design: The purchased raw material corn is transported to the unloading shed of the factory area, and the materials are transferred to the silo for storage by the elevator. Other raw materials are stored in the raw material warehouse.


Raw material cleaning process

Equipment: hopper and fence, cylindrical primary cleaning screen, conical primary cleaning screen, permanent magnet drum, etc.

Process design: Since the purchased corn, soybean meal and other raw materials contain impurities, the powder sieve needs to be cleaned. The purchased raw and auxiliary materials are put into the feeding hopper, and then lifted to the feeding port via the conveyor, and then screened by the primary cleaning screen, and then enter the powder waiting bin.


Crushing process

Equipment: bin to be crushed, impeller feeder, pulverizer, etc.

Process design: Corn, soybean meal and other materials to be crushed in the bin enter the crusher for crushing through the upper and lower material levelers and impeller feeders. They are crushed to a qualified particle size and are lifted to the batching bin by the conveyor.


Mixing process

Equipment: batching warehouse group, upper material level device, lower material level device, large batching scale, small batching scale, mixing buffer hopper, double-shaft paddle type high-efficiency mixer, etc.

Process: The crushed materials are fed into the double-shaft paddle-type high-efficiency mixer through the upper material leveler and the lower material leveler. During the mixing process, the materials will produce mixed exhaust gas.


Conditioning process

Equipment: Conditioner

Process design: The mixed materials are matured through boiler steam in the conditioner, and the aging time is 180s. The mixed materials are matured by steam heating.


Granulation and cooling process

Equipment: silo to be granulated, animal livestock poultry feed pellet machine, air hammer, buffer bucket, crusher, counterflow-cooler, etc.

Process design: Transport the matured material to the silo to be granulated, then squeeze it into cake shape through an air hammer, and then transport the material to the animal feed granulator for granulation through the upper and lower material levelers. Because the material is wet, no waste gas will be produced during granulation.
After the pelleting process is completed, the pellets are transported to the cooler for cooling. The cooled feed pellets enter the "fool" type rotary classification screen for screening, and qualified products enter the finished product warehouse to be packaged. Unqualified products are sent to the crusher feeder by the conveyor, enter the crusher for crushing, return to the granulation bin, and then are granulated again.


Packaging process

Equipment: belt conveyor sewing machine

Process design: The materials in the finished product warehouse are transported to the belt conveyor sewing machine through the upper and lower material levelers for packaging processing.



The steam for the aging process of the project is provided by a 2t/h gas boiler. The fuel of this boiler is pipeline natural gas and adopts low-nitrogen combustion technology.YouTube
