The ring die animal pellet feed machine is mainly composed of feeding, mixing, granulating, transmission and lubrication systems, etc. It is used to develop the wet powder into the required pellets, and it can also crush the bulk dry powder into the required pellets.
During the working process of the feed pellet mill die and the roller, the ring die is driven by the main power of the motor to rotate clockwise at a certain speed; as material enters the granulating chamber, the material starts to be taken into the working area, and the pressure roller is also driven by friction. With the rotation of the die roll, the ingested material moves forward faster, and the extrusion force and the density of the material gradually increase.
When the extrusion force is increased enough to overcome the friction between the material in the die hole and the inner wall, the material with a certain density and cohesive force is squeezed into the ring die hole. Due to the continuous rotation of the die and roll, the material is continuously squeezed into the ring die hole. Therefore, the material in the ring die hole is continuously squeezed out of the ring die hole after being formed, and is cut by the cutter to form pellets.

Dies and Rollers
Dies and rollers are made in Germany from high-quality steel alloys.
The feed pellet machine cover is made entirely of stainless steel. Two pellet-cutting blades are mounted on the frame extension. This allows the cover to be safely opened and closed without changing the blade adjustment.
Automatic Roller Adjustment
With the automatic roller adjustment mechanism, you can adjust the gap between the roller and the die with the help of automation.
The movable shaft connected to the movable front chuck passes through the press from the main shaft to the back of the press and is connected to a hydraulic cylinder. The shaft that gets its drive from this cylinder moves back and forth linearly and moves the movable front mirror.
The mirror, one end of which is movable, makes the roller distance adjustment by rotating the roller eccentrics thanks to the special bolt eyes, one end of which is connected to the roller adjustment star. The adjustment value is transferred to the automation thanks to the linear scale connected to the cylinder. (Related post: Australia 1-2T/H Small Scale Chicken Feed Mill)

Factors affecting the output of pellet mill for animal feed:
Under the given pressure of the boiler, the steam enters the pipeline as saturated steam. During the transportation process, energy will be lost to produce condensed water and become unsaturated hot and humid steam, which will have an adverse effect on conditioning.
Therefore, before conditioning, the condensed water should be discharged and turned into low-pressure dry hot steam through a pressure reducing valve to improve the conditioning effect. After decompression, the vapor pressure is not lower than 0.2 MPa, and the temperature is not lower than 120℃.
Many customers fail to achieve their ideal production efficiency due to improper use of the pellet machine for animal feed. They can be adjusted and improved according to the above methods to improve production efficiency. For more technical knowledge about feed machinery and equipment, please pay attention to us and share it with more people in need.
The ring die is the main wearing part of the pellet machine for animal feed. The quality of the ring die directly affects the production efficiency and the quality of the finished product. During the production process, the crushed feed enters the granulation equipment after being tempered, and is extruded from the hole die under the extrusion of the ring die and the pressure roller, and then cut into the required granule length by the cutter.
At present, the quality of ring dies on the market varies from high to low, mainly due to differences in material selection, process selection and processing technology. The ring dies produced by some small feed mill factories are forged from carbon steel or alloy, and then finished by ordinary heat treatment. (Related project: Papua New Guinea 1-2T/H Small Chicken Feed Plant Project)
This kind of ring die of pellet machine for animal feed is very prone to various problems such as high energy consumption, low production capacity, and mold explosion in production; what is more harmful is that a ring die with a low wear-resistant life will greatly affect the feed formula and pellet quality.
It is recommended to choose a ring die produced by a regular manufacturer, and choose a pellet machine manufacturer with advanced technology and reasonable material selection; choose stainless steel forging blanks to ensure a long life; choose a ring die processed by a drilling machine, the die hole is smooth and flat, and the output quality of pellet machine for animal feed is better; choose vacuum ring die of heat treatment technology further ensures the corrosion resistance and wear resistance.
The feed pellet machine belongs to the feed making equipment, and is a feed processing machine that directly compresses the pellets from the crushed materials of corn, soybean meal, soybean, wheat, straw, grass, rice husk and other raw materials.

Feed pelleting is the process of compacting powdered feed, extruding the die hole, and forming pellet feed. Before this, the conditioning process is indispensable, and conditioning needs to be a process of high-humidity, high-temperature, and mechanical comprehensive treatment of feed. The purpose is to make starch gelatinization, protein denaturation, and material softening, so as to facilitate granulation and improve the quality of granules, and improve the palatability of feed and increase its digestibility.
Through proper conditioning, the granulating ability of the feed granulator can be improved, harmful germs can be killed, and the quality of granular products can be improved, especially the hardness, durability and water stability of aquatic feed. Therefore, the production of feed pellet machine requires comprehensive industrial design, mechanical design and other multi-disciplinary expertise. Generally speaking, without professional mechanical knowledge and nutritional knowledge of feed, it is impossible to manufacture high-quality feed pelletizers.
The pellet machine for animal feed is composed of several different machines designed to most efficiently accomplish the pellet manufacturing plants' pelleting production. A ring die feed pellet machine is composed of a screw feeder, conditioner, roller and ring die, discharge port, electric motor, gearbox, pedestal.
After the feed has been mixed and before going to the machine it should go through a scalper. This removes everything such as metal (ferrous and non-ferrous), stones, string, paper, wood, feed lumps and gives a dressed feed into the bin above the machine. A pelleting machine is not designed to pellet these materials, let alone the animal stomach to digest them. The pelleting process starts with a bin in which the mixture of mash is stored. From there, the mash will flow by gravity into the feed pelletizer.
This pelletizing machine is usually located on the ground or main work floor level. The hot, extruded mash (pellets) flows by gravity into a cooler where it is held for three to six minutes while being cooled and dried by a flow of air. The air is drawn through the mass of pellets and passed into a dust collecting device, such as a cyclone collector. The dust from the outlet of the collector is returned to the machine to again be compacted into a pellet feed.
Feed pellet making machine is used to process animal poultry, livestock, ruminant and aquatic feed pellets. It can both be utilized by feed mills, animal farms and those who want to make feed pellets for sale.
The Fish Feed Pellet Making Machine is one of the offered model of feed machines, which can prepare many type of fodder such as aquaculture fodder and fishery fodder - Fishes, Shrimps, Crab, Eel, Catfish, etc.

Pellet feed refers to the pellet feed obtained by pressing the processed powdered compound feed through a pellet machine for animal feed. Compared with powdered feed, pellet feed has many advantages, which can be summarized in 5 aspects:
Although pellet feed made by animal feed pelleting machine has many advantages, its cost is higher than that of similar powdered feed, and it should be selected according to the actual production situation when purchasing.
In recent years, with the development of Nigeria's aquaculture industry, more and more Nigerians have participated in relevant training in fish farming, and the number of people engaged in aquaculture has increased.
According to the Nigerian Institute of Oceanography, Nigeria has a population of more than 200 million. It is a country with a large population and residents have a huge demand for aquatic products. The development of the aquaculture industry will improve the level of the agricultural value chain and benefit the country.
To help fish feed plants and fish farmers provide balanced fish feed pellets at a bargain price. As a professional feed machine manufacturer from China, we have launched a series of pellet machine for animal feed with reasonable prices and high quality according to the local market conditions, including fish feed pellet machines, feed mixers, feed crushers, feed dryer, pellet cooler, packing machines , etc.
Fish feed can be divided into sinking fish feed and floating fish feed according to their buoyancy. In Nigeria’s fish farming industry, there is a great demand for fish feed. Therefore, pellet machine for fish feed demand in the fish farming industry is huge. Thanks to government support and local abundant raw materials, fish feed production is a profitable business in Nigeria.
The main steps of fish feed pellet production in Nigeria are as follows:
The following processing procedures are complete animal feed pellet manufacturing process, but not all sections are required in practical production. The exact animal feed pellet production process are strictly designed by combining requirements of feed pellets type, investment cost, capacity and others.
1. Raw Material Reception and Storage
Animal feed raw materials vary, they include: long material like crop straw, grains like wheat, maize, and others like oil cake/meal, additives, etc. different raw materials have different storage methods. For example, in complete animal feed pellet line of large capacity, storage silo is necessary for storing maize, wheat, and other grains.
2. Feed Material Cleaning
The impurities in feed raw materials not only affect the quality of feed pellet products, but also directly relate to the feed processing machines and personal safety. In serious case, the whole equipment can be destroyed, which impacts the smooth progress of the pellet feed production, so the impurities must be removed in time. The cleaning equipment of the feed pellet production line is based on screening and magnetic separation equipment. Screening equipment is used to remove large and long impurities such as stones, mud blocks and sacks. The magnetic separator is mainly used to remove iron impurities.
3. Feed Raw Material Crushing
The technological process of feed crushing is determined according to the required fineness and the variety of feed. Animal feed hammer mill is the most commonly used feed making machine in this process.
4. Feed Material Batching Process
At present, the commonly used batching processes include manual batching, automaitc batching. Manual batching is mostly utilized in small feed pellet plant ; automaitc batching is mostly utilized medium and large scale feed factory.
5. Feed Mixing Process
There are 2 feed mixing methods: batch mixing and continuous mixing. Batch mixing is to blend all the components together according to the proportion of the formula, and mix them in the periodically running "batch mixer". This mixing method is convenient for replacing feed formula, and the intermixing between each batch is less, so batch mixing is commonly applied at present. However, as the start and stop operation is complex, the automatic program control is mostly used.
The continuous mixing process is a continuous measurement of all kinds of feed components at the same time respectively and proportionately matched to a stream containing various feed components. When the stream enters a continuous mixer, it is mixed continuously into a uniform flow of material. The advantage of this process is that it can be carried out continuously, easily with granulation, so the production does not need to operate frequently. but when changing feed formula, the adjustment of the flow is more troublesome and the material residue in the continuous conveying and continuous mixing equipment is more, so the intermixing problem between the two batches of feed is more serious.
6 Feed Pelletizing
In animal feed factory, feed material conditioning (tempering) is necessary, so ring die feed pellet machine is usually equipped with a conditioner on the top. The conditioning result directly influences feed pellets quality. The purpose of conditioning is to add water to the feed powder to let it has certain moisture content. After conditioning, the feed material is distributed evenly between the roller and ring die, so the feed pellets are pressed out through ring die holes, cut and discharged.
7. Feed Pellets Cooling
As in the process of pellet machine for animal feed, the feed is input high temperature and humidity steam, and the squezzing process generates great heat, so the feed pellets moisture content can reach 16-18%, and temperature reach 75 ℃-85 ℃. Under this condition, the feed pellets are easily deformed and broken, and would bond and mildew in storage, so it is necessary to use feed pellet cooler to reduce their moisture to below 14% and decrease the temperature to below 8 degrees Celsius.
8. Feed Pellets Crumbling
For making animal feed pellets of small size, crumbling is also necessary. In order to save electricity, increase the output and improve the quality, the feed material is often made into a certain size pellets in order to save electricity, and then broken into required smaller pellet size. But it is not a must for all feed mills.
9. Feed Pellets Screening
In feed pellet processing line, the pellet sieving machine is also needed, since it can separate the powder from eligible feed pellets, so that uniform feed pellets can be deliver to later packaging process, and the powder or uneligible feed pellets can go back for reproduction.
10. Feed Pellets Packaging
Produced feed pellets are weighted and packaged for sale on the market.
Small feed pellet machine is generally a type of flat die pellet mill that is relatively small in the output capacity when compared to ring die feed pellet machine. It can be used for farm use, home use. More important, this small feed machine price is cheap, ranging from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars.
The pellet machine for animal feed is divided into two types: flat die type and ring die type. The production capacity of the ring die pellet machine is faster, and the hardness of the pellets is stronger than that of the flat die. In addition, there are many ring die type pelleting machines has many models and strong selectivity, any materials can be processed. It mainly depends on your scale. For large scales, ring die pellet machines are required. For small scales, flat die pellet machine can be considered.
As for the model, you have to consider how much it can produce per hour, how much feed you consume per day, and whether to increase your production scale in the future, and you are deciding which model to use. The machines range from hundreds of kilograms per hour to dozens of tons per hour, with great selection.
The difference between flat die pellet machine and ring die pellet machine:
1. Feeding method: The ring die pellet machine adopts mechanical forced feeding, high-speed rotation and centrifugal distribution into the granulating chamber, and the scraper is used to distribute the material, and the feeding is uneven; the flat die pellet machine relies on the weight of the material to enter vertically The pressing room can feed evenly.
2.Pressure: In a mold with the same diameter, the diameter of the ring die pressing wheel is limited by the diameter of the ring die, and the pressure is not adjustable. When pressing coarse fiber materials, it is difficult to form under the pressure of the machine design, even if it is formed. Due to the overload work, the machine wears a lot, the die roller skin needs to be replaced in time, and the die can only be used once, and the follow-up cost is very high; the flat die pellet machine adopts three conical press wheels with a complete steel structure, and there is a strip in the middle.
The large shaft is equipped with a specially heat-treated mold underneath. The rotation of the mold drives the rotation of the three pressing wheels above. The pressure is adjustable, the output is stable, the particle density is high, and both sides of the mold can be used. In addition, the diameter of the flat die press wheel is not limited by the diameter of the die, and the internal shaft space can be enlarged. Large bearings are used to enhance the bearing capacity of the press wheel, increase the pressing force of the press wheel and extend the service life.
3. Discharge method: ring die belongs to high rotation speed, and the damage rate is lower when the material is discharged; while flat die belongs to low rotation speed, and the damage rate is lower.
4. The pressure wheel adjustment method: If the ring die pellet machine uses two screws on the eccentric wheel in the middle of the press wheel to adjust the pressure; the flat die pellet machine adopts the threaded screw center adjustment mechanism, and the falling is stable and the pressure is uniform.
From the above comparison, we can see that the concentrate raw materials are generally corn and soybean meal, etc., which are highly viscous and easy to form, and can be formed without a lot of pressure. The ring die pellet machine is indeed a good choice in suppressing feed concentrates. For high-temperature granulation of wood chips, straw, grass meal, waste tires, and other difficult-to-form crude fibers, and the granulation of organic fertilizers such as municipal solid waste, sewage treatment, and animal manure, the ring die pellet machine is still the best choice. If you want to choose a flat die pellet machine for animal feed, it is usually a very small application, such as home use.
