The future for building a fish feed production line

The future for building a fish feed production line

fish feed production line

Since the feed industrialization, the global feed production has entered a new stage, and the global feed output has been rising. More and more people want to start a fish feed production line and fish farming business. At this time, the using of fish feed equipment is increased. So what are the benefits of using the fish feed production line to produce fish feed pellets yourself?

At present, the full price feed of most cultured fish is hard granular, so it is inconvenient to add some additives or disease prevention drugs in the process of use. When using the fish feed production line to make pellets, various feed additives and disease prevention drugs can be added in time according to the needs of cultured fish, so as to further improve the feed quality, improve the feed conversion rate and strengthen the prevention and treatment of fish diseases.

In different regions, different farmers have different stocking modes, and there are great differences in the required feed nutrition levels. However, the full price feed produced by most manufacturers mostly designs the feed formula according to the nutritional needs of the general fish, and rarely considers the nutritional needs of the captive fish. The use of self-made feed can be based on the breeding mode and the stocking conditions of different species of fish, Taking into account the nutritional needs of the main fish and the captive fish, the appropriate feed formula is designed to meet the nutritional needs of the fish.

With the growth of fish, their nutritional needs are also changing. Therefore, it is also required to adjust the nutritional level of feed. Only in this way can we not only meet the growth needs of fish at all stages, but also effectively reduce the feed cost. 

The main equipment of the fish feed production line is fish feed extruder. The fish feed extruder is a single screw extruder, which is mainly used for the production and processing of high-grade aquatic feed pellets and pet feed pellets, including the processing of viscous formula materials. The fish feed pellet extruder can produce aquatic feeds with different particle sizes and shapes. And these feeds can remain stable in water for a long time, so it can reduce the waste of feed nutrition.

The extrusion heating process can kill some pathogenic bacteria and most viruses, thus reducing the level of toxins in feed materials. The fish feed pellet extruder can produce floating and sinking fish feeds according to the feeding characteristics and habits of fish. The fish feed pellet extruder can produce aquatic feeds with different pellet sizes and shapes. And these feeds can remain stable in water for a long time, so it can reduce the waste of feed nutrition.

The temperature and pressure conditions of extrusion processing are stronger than granulation and expansion. It is the preferred processing method for aquatic feed and pet feed, which can better improve the digestion and utilization rate of these animal feeds. This can be achieved by an fish feed extruder.

With the rapid development of the aquaculture industry, especially the growing economic benefits of aquaculture, a variety of aquatic feeds such as puffed pellets and hard feed pellets came into being. Therefore, seizing this opportunity to build a fish feed production line is a good way to make a fortune. As the fish have tiny intestines, poor digestion and absorption, aquatic feed processing technology is far more demanding than the processing of livestock and poultry feed. Therefore, the choice of the equipment of the fish feed production line is particularly important.

The production of high-quality fish feed must rely on scientific and reasonable processing technology, and make it combined with advanced, reliable and stable processing machinery. In this regard, the choice of processing equipment of fish feed production line is particularly critical.

  • The selection of crushing equipment

When producing ordinary fish feed, the size of its raw materials required to 40-60 mesh. But when producing the special aquatic pellet feed (shrimp feed, eel feed, turtle feed, etc), the size of raw materials must reach more than 80 mesh. To achieve the ideal size of the crushed, the previously used hammer mill is not adapted to the production of fish feed. It must select the micro crumbler to carry out.

RICHI Machinery owns this micro crumbler. The micro crumbler is widely used in the crushing of raw materials of fish feed. The key parts are all imported, and it is easy to operate and maintain.

For the production of fish feeds, a high degree of pasting and stability in water is required, so the conditioning is essential. In a needed moisture and temperature, the only approach to get this is extending the conditioning time. The most common equipment is the multi-layer conditioner before pelleting.

RICHI Machinery can provide you a fish feed production line with three-layer conditioner. Inside the conditioner, the raw material is fully contacted with the saturated dry steam, to become matured, pasted and sterilized.

  • The selection of equipment for producing floating fish feed

Feed puffing technology is mainly used in the production of special aquatic feed, pet feed and other animal feed. In addition to the advantages of general full-price pellet feed, puffed feed also has the ability to improve the digestive absorption rate of fed animals and can effectively prevent animal digestive tract diseases.

RICHI Machinery can provide you the equipment with such technology. The fish feed extruder of a complete fish feed production line is suitable for the processing of various floating and sinking aquatic feed, suckling pig feed, pet feed, etc. Quality is the life of an enterprise. To produce fish feeds and obtain high quality feeds of different species that meet the requirements, one should choose the applicable equipment according to the species they produce. RICHI Machinery has its own factory and professional production equipment. With more than 20 years of experience in the industry, RICHI Machinery can provide customers with different recommendations.

3. Complete process of floating fish feed production line

Floating fish feed production line plays a major role in feed manufacturers and feed farms, and Richi Machinery has developed and produced according to the market. The floating fish feed making machine production line is broken down into the following processes:

(1) Raw material crushing section:

Feed pulverizers can pulverize raw ingredients to the desired pellet size. Different grinders have different degrees of grinding. We offer four types of feed mills. Hammer mills are suitable for small and mediumfloating fish feed mill. Large and medium-sized floating fish feed mills typically use wide-chamber fine mills and drop hammer mills. The superfine hammer mill is designed for crushing special aquatic feed raw materials.

(2) Feed mixing section:

Mixing is considered to be one of the essential operations in floating fish feed making machine line. Lack of proper mixing can result in reduced ration uniformity, which can affect feed pellet quality.

We offer two high-efficiency feed mixers: twin shaft mixers for mixing powdered or granular materials and spiral belt mixers for mixing powdered materials. Both can be equipped with an atomizing spray system to add the required liquid to improve the quality of the feed pellets.

(3) Feed pelletizing section:

Floating fish feed making machine is the main equipment of the whole production line. There are two kinds of common floating pellet machines: ring die floating fish pellet machine and ring die floating fish pellet machine.

 If you want to produce large batches of feed pellets, a ring die feed pellet mill is ideal. If your needs are smaller, you can choose a floating fish feed extruder. In addition, we also supply aquafeed pellet machines for pressing fish feed pellets and shrimp feed pellets, etc.

(4) Feed pellet cooling part:

The feed pellets extruded by the floating fish feed making machine are hot and moist. They cannot be immediately crushed, sifted or packaged. Counterflow feed pellet coolers are designed to cool or dry feed pellets.

 It lowers the temperature and moisture of the feed pellets in preparation for the following parts.

(5) Feed pellet crushing section:

Different poultry, livestock or aquafeed pellets have different sizes. Some large ones should be smashed into small ones. Roll feed pellet mill is feed pellet crushing equipment. Double-roller feed pellet mill is suitable for crushing poultry feed, such as chicken feed, duck feed, goose feed, etc. The three-roller feed pellet mill is suitable for crushing fish feed, shrimp feed and other aquatic feed.

(6) Screening and grading part of feed pellets:

Crushed feed pellets vary in size and may contain some powder. Rotary classifier screens can be used to screen and classify feed pellets. After processing, qualified feed pellets without fine powder can be obtained.

(7) Feed pellet packing section:

Feed pellets should be packaged for transport, storage or sale. The automatic weighing and packaging machine can automatically carry out high-precision weighing and packaging of pellets.
