Applications Of Floating Fish Feed Machine

The floating feed machine is mainly used in fish, shrimp, pet feed production, the production of extruded soybean flour, grain and corn raw materials treatment. Also used in pretreatment of oil bearing materialss of oil and fat industry.

The animal feed industry is currently the most industrialized industry in agriculture. It is the link that connects planting, breeding, and animal product processing industries, and plays a pivotal role in agriculture. In the feed industry, the floating feed making machine production technology for extruded aquatic feed is very different from the traditional processing technology of livestock and poultry feed.

Working Principle Of Floating Fish Feed Machine

Extrusion processing is defined as a process in which feed materials flow through a die under one or several process conditions (such as stirring, heating, and shearing) to make the material shape and erupt and vaporize. In other words, extrusion processing combines several processes together: including mixing, curing, kneading, shearing, and forming.
mini fish feed floating extruder machine

In today's feed and food industry, a fish pellet extruders refers to a pelleting machine that continuously processes a product with a spiral feature (that is, a rotating screw with blades, which is very tightly installed in a cylinder to transport fluid). The extruded fish feed machine can be designed to include various operations, such as mixing, homogenizing and curing, cooling, vacuuming, forming, and cutting.

With the wide application and continuous development of extrusion technology, the types of fish feed floating pellet making machine are increasing day by day, and their classification methods are also diverse. According to the strength of the shear force, it can be divided into high shear force, medium shear force, and low shear force extrusion extruder; according to the heating mode, it can be divided into self-heating and external heating or called dry fish stock feed extruder machine and wet extruder for fish feed.

Difference between floating and sinking fish feed made by fish feed extruder machine

  1. Spindle speed:
    Floating feed: The spindle speed is basically at full speed according to the set speed;
    Sinking feed: The spindle speed is generally about 1/3 lower than that of floating feed.
  2. Degree of maturation, degree of puffing:
    Floating feed: more than 95% are basically fully matured, and the degree of expansion is generally between 1.5-2.0;
    Sinking feed: About 80% matured, and the degree of puffing is generally not more than 1.3 times.floating fish feed machine manufacturer
  3. After the material enters the fish feed extruder machine, the sinking feed will have one more pressure relief process than the floating feed, and then it will be out of the mold, the pressure in the barrel is lower:
    Floating feed: conveying forward, melting and curing, and puffing out of the mold.
    Sinking feed: conveying forward, melting and curing, pressure relief conveying, compression density out of the mold (slightly puffed).
  4. The amount of water added for tempering, the sinking feed should be significantly higher. The tempered moisture of the two fish feed is:
    Floating feed: about 24%;
    Sinking feed: about 30%.floating fish feed machine price per kg
  5. The opening rate of the template is different:
    Floating feed: Assume generally (1);
    Sinking feed: approximately (2-2.5).
  6. Main recipes are different:
    Floating feed: Generally, the amount of starch is 20%-25%, and the feed needs to float, mainly by the expansion of starch;
    Sinking feed: Generally around 10%, it is difficult to sink completely if it reaches 15% or more, the main function is to bond and improve water resistance.

small floating fish feed machine
In addition to different formulas and puffing operating parameters, expanded floating fish feed and sinking fish feed are also different in actual extruder feed making machine requirements. Sinking fish feed is produced by fish food extruder machine instead of fish feed pellet machine after granulation. It is very important that a high degree of maturation is required.

The requirements for the sinking fish feed production should be higher than those for floating water. First of all, it requires the maturation degree that is basically the same as that of the floating feed, and then it is necessary to consider reducing pressure at the discharge end (the common method is to add water to cool), so the aspect ratio of the sinking feed pellet making machine model is larger than that of the floating feed.

That is to say, a large aspect ratio can produce floating feed and sinking feed, a small aspect ratio is suitable for floating water material, and the maturation degree is low when used as a sinking feed. In fact, many small food extruder machines on the market that are mainly used for puffing cereals have insufficient maturity when producing pet food and other products. This is the reason.

How to choose fish feed machine: fish pellet machine or fish feed extruder machine?

Although more and more aquatic feed production plant uses power extruder floating fish feed machines, many people still use fish feed pelletizers, mainly because of cost constraints. We sell high efficiency automatic pet bird fish shrimp feed pellet making machine and also extruder for fish feed making. Which fish feed manufacturing equipment is more suitable for customer needs is the most basic standard for us to recommend fish feed machine to customers. The following share irrelevant marketing, just to objectively explain some facts.
floating fish feed pellet machine

So far, 70% of aquatic feed production line in the United States and 100% aquatic feed plant in South Korea have adopted extrusion processing technology. In China, more and more feed companies are gradually replacing traditional fish feed pellet mills with fish feed pellets extruder to produce aquatic feeds and other special feeds. In the current global aquatic feed market, because most aquatic feed manufacturers are limited by funds, they usually choose lower-priced single-screw concentrated floating fish feed machines.
floating fish feed machine price

However, due to their simple structure, technical level, and insufficient manufacturing level, they can only In aquatic feed manufacturing, it is used to produce lower-grade freshwater fish buoyant feed. It is difficult to produce sun fish feed and other high-end aquatic feed products. Although some very few single-screw pellet extruder machine for fish feed can meet the production of high-end sinking fish feed products, their prices are too high and there is no good price-performance ratio.

Comparison between single twin screw extruder for fish feed pellets:

The selection of fish feed extrusion machine should not only see that the price of twin-screw extruder machine for pellet fish is higher than that of single-screw extruder to make fish feed, but also should consider the comprehensive price ratio and fish feed mill production cost.
floating fish feed extruder machine

In fact, the technical performance of China's high-quality twin-screw electric fish feed extruder machine has reached the advanced level. Although the price is higher than that of the single-screw feed pellet extruder, it is much lower than the price of single-screw feed pellet extruder models in other countries.

It surpasses imported single-screw animal and fish feed extruder machine models and can completely replace imported twin-screw extruder machine to make fish feed. It can not only meet the needs of high-end aquatic feeds in the aquaculture industry, but also achieve high cost performance. It should be the best choice for the aquatic feed processing industry at present.

fish floating feed machine

With the emergence of large-size, large-volume and special-purpose twin-screw fish food extruders for extruding floating fish feeds, the use of twin-screw fish feed extruders can obtain greater benefits, and can give full play to the wide range of raw materials used in extrusion processing technology and the advantages of starch high degree of gelatinization, water stability is much higher than ordinary pellet feed, product density is adjustable, processable floatability, slow sinking, fast sinking and high-moisture, high-fat feed.

The relatively loose pellet structure facilitates the use of post-spraying technology. It has unique advantages such as avoiding the loss of heat-sensitive raw materials, preventing environmental pollution and disease prevention and disease resistance, improving the nutritional value of feed, and reducing production costs.
