Matters needing attention in the operation of feed pellet machine

  • Clicks:

We know that the feed pellet machine sometimes fails during work, but as long as we pay more attention to the usual operation of the place where the failure occurs, it will reduce the occurrence of failure.

Feed pellet machines are now mainly used to make feed pellets. Common feeds are chicken, duck and goose, pig, cattle and sheep feed, rabbit feed, fish feed and so on. The proportion of feed pellet machines in our country is getting higher and higher, and there are a lot of attentions in the work operation. Raw materials will also have a great impact on the finished feed products, so I will briefly introduce them below.

1. The amount of oil is suitable

The feed pellet machine generally adds about 1% fat when it is working. If the amount is too high, it will easily cause the particles to loosen. If you need to add more fat, you can consider granule spraying after the pellet, which is especially suitable for producing high-energy feed. The particle size of the crushed raw material determines the surface area of ​​the feed composition. The smaller the particle size, the larger the surface area, the faster the material absorbs moisture in the steam, which is conducive to the conditioning of the material and is also easy to pelletize.

2. Is the finer the finer the granulator?

From the point of view of feed pellets, the crushing is fine and the pelleting strength is high, but the steam is added a lot, it is easy to block the machine, and the crushing of the raw materials is too fine, resulting in excessive crushing power consumption. Granularity is too coarse, which increases the wear of the ring die and the press stick, making granulation difficult, especially for small-diameter ring die. And cause the poor gelatinization effect of the material, resulting in high material consumption, low yield and high powder content. Therefore, usually for the production of livestock and poultry feed, 2.5 ~ 3.0mm sieve plate should be used for crushing corn, which can avoid the disadvantages of excessively fine particle size and ensure the particle size required for sufficient quality adjustment of the feed, which is conducive to reducing the powder content of the particles.

3. Mixing uniformity

In addition, it is necessary to pay attention to the mixing uniformity of the feed pellet mechanism before the grain, because the composition of the feed formula is complex, and the proportions of various raw materials are greatly different. For different formulas and different varieties, different mixing times are used to make the coefficient of variation of the mixing uniformity reach about 5%.
