The importance of moisture control in feed processing

  • Clicks:

The importance of moisture control in feed processing. During the processing of animal feed, the amount of water will affect its storage time, etc., and in order to avoid the situation that the mold is too wet to cause mildew, the water contained in the feed will be controlled to a certain extent during the production of the feed .

The importance of moisture control in feed processing

In the process of operating the feed pellet machine, on the one hand, we must pay attention to maintaining its normal operation. And on the other hand, we must strengthen the level of moisture control technology. At the same time, the moisture index is also one of the keys to ensure the quality and safety of feed products.

The Control Of Moisture

If there is too much water and exceeds the specified value, the obtained feed particles will be easily moldy. Which will increase the difficulty in the preservation and other aspects, and will also cause the nutrient content of the feed pellets to decrease and reduce the energy of the feed.

Conversely, if the moisture content is too small, it will affect the taste of the feed pellets, leading to a decline in economic benefits. And on the other hand, it will affect the operating status of the feed processing machinery, leading to increased wear, increased production costs, and reduced output. Therefore, for production enterprises, it has obviously become a common concern of how to control the moisture content of feed pellets to an appropriate level.

During The Feed Pellet Production Line

From the perspective of the actual feed pellet production line, due to different feed processing processes, raw material sources, and different proportioning schemes, the control of the moisture content of intermediate products and final products will often change during the operation of feed processing machinery. Generally, it is reasonable to control the moisture change of the semi-finished powder after mixing within the range of 9% to 14%.

In addition, when entering the quenching and tempering process, the moisture content of the powder should generally maintain at about 12.5%. Later, in the process of pressing into the feed processing machinery mold for pressing, it is usually required to control the smooth moisture content between 15.0% and 16.5%. In this way, a more uniform and quality-compliant feed pellet can obtain.
