how to make horse feed pellets
some necessary equipment you need to make horse feed pelles are feed pellet mill, which is the core equipment, feed grinder machine, feed mixer machine, cooler machine and packing machine. below is the general 5 steps of how to make horse feed pellets:
The first step in how to make horse feed pellets is to crush the ingredients. This step is designed to grind the material into fine particles for mixing. This step occurs in a coarse grinder. There is a hammer mill grinder mill machine that is responsible for breaking down the raw material into finer particles. Once all the materials have been grinded into finer particles, you can move them to the next step of making horse feed pellets.
the second step of how to make horse feed pellets is to use a horse feed mixer you can mix all kinds of horse feed ingredients thoroughly to ensure that each bite of the finished horse feed pellets is nutritionally balanced. If you do not want to make pellet horse feed, you can use the mixer to mix your own feed after crushing the ingredients to make horse feed mash.
the forth step of how to make horse feed pellets is cooling and screening processes, Pellets from the granulator can be discharged at up to 88°C and 17-18% moisture. The temperature of the pellets must be reduced quickly to achieve a moisture content of 10-12% or less for proper storage and handling. Therefore the pellets must be cooled and dried. Our pellet coolers use the counter-current cooling principle to cool the pellets sufficiently and uniformly. The temperature of the cooled pellets is not higher than room temperature + 3-5 degrees.
After cooling, the pellets will be bagged or stored according to your needs and requirements. which is the last step of how to make horse feed pellets. The packaging process is efficiently handled by our fully automatic packaging machine. The finished feed is weighed by a computer and then pneumatically unloaded into the bags. The weighed bag will move down the conveyor belt and the machine can be used to sew the top of the bag where the dry feed can be stored.
