For feeds of fish and shrimp, the floating time on water surface can be adjusted by the extrusion degree adjustment when extruding the pellets,an ideal for small and medium fish farm (catfish, tilapia, shrimp etc.) holders。
The pellet produced by this floating fish feed pellet machine can floats on the water at least about 24 hours.Especially for aquaculture industry such as the fish,the shrimptortoise,and other aquatic product.The pellet diameter can be varied. the fish feed pellet machine can produce many kinds of fodder for different kinds of animals. the floating fish feed pellet mill can make poultry fodder, pet-fodder,as well as aquaculture fodder and fishery feed.the fish feed pellet machine is applied to the pretreatment of the many kinds of fishes feed,so as to reduce loss of nutrition, advance the protein ratio,but if you want sinking pellets, we have another type of fish feed machine for making sinking fish feed pellets.
Materials for floating fish feed pellet mill
☆ before making floating fish feed,you need crush raw materials into powder with fish feed crusher
☆ raw materials can be: corn,wheat,soybean,grain ,bone powder etc
☆ raw materials need grind into 60-80mesh raw materials moisture content : 13-18%
☆ Rice Dust: contain about 10-14% of protein and also contain vitamin B1, B2, B6 and small quantity of enzyme.
finished pet food produced by this fish feed making machine
☆ Mustard Cake: Mix maximum 40% of cake in the fish feed. But don’t use dry cake more than 20%. Mustard cake contain 30-32% protein. ☆ the floating fish feed making machine also contain a high rate of fat.
☆ Wheat Chaff: contain fiber, control many types of fish diseases.
☆ Maize: contain protein, carbohydrate, fat, vitamin A and E.☆ Cotton Seeds: contain about 54% protein. It is a better ingredients for supplementary fish feed.
☆ Fish Powder: easily digestible to fish. Fishmeal contain about 55-60% protein.
☆ Bone Powder: very necessary for building fish-bone. The ratio of calcium and magnesium in the bone dust is 2 : 1.
☆ Innards : very suitable and ideal feed for catfish. It contain 52% protein.
☆ Our floating fish feed machine is of single screw design.
☆ We provide technical formula for making floating fish feed pellets after placing order.
☆ We send extra easy wear parts for free including two sleeves, one screw, one cutting knife and three die moulds.
Advantages of floating fish feed pellet machine
1) With different moulds, the floating fish feed pellet mill for sale can produce different diameter food, from 0.9mmto 10 mm. The food can meet different stage fish. The food can be floating 24hours.
2) the floating fish feed pellet machine for sale can produce different shapes feed for fish, dog, cat etc.Through the pretreatment of the feed, it can reduce loss of nutrition and advance the protein ratio. So the feed will be digested easily by animals.
3) the floating fish feed making machine has high efficiency, low power consumption
4) Screw sleeve of this small fish feed making machine adopts enchase alloy steel strip structure, which guarantees long service life.
5) Different moulds can be chosen to make pellets with different diameters and shapes.
6) final feed pellets produced by the fish feed making machine dia. Is 0.9-15mm.

benefits of floating fish feed pellet
1.Floating fish feed can float on water for about 24 hours
Floating fish feed manufactured by this fish feed pellet making machine can float on water for about 24 hours, which is convenient for feeding, and also save labor. due to the puffed floating fish feed can float on water, it can observe the feeding condition of the fish well after feeding, and it is convenient to adjust the feeding amount according to the feeding condition; at the same time, people can accurately know the growth and health of fish by feeding amount and the condition of fish feeding, The fish farmer can calculate the amount of feed that can be fed according to the variety, specification, quantity, water temperature and feed rate of the fish
2.Puffed Floating Fish Feed Can Improve Feed Utilization
Due to the high-temperature and high-pressure processing conditions of fish feed pellet making machine, the starch in the feed is matured, and the fat is more conducive to digestion and absorption, thereby improving the palatability and digestion absorption of the feed. In addition, due to the physical and chemical changes in the puffing process, the powder ratio of puffed feed is generally within 1%, which directly improves the effective use of the feed. In addition, due to physical and chemical changes in the extruding process, the puffed feed generally produces less than 1% of the powder, which directly improves the effective use of the feed. Under normal circumstances, fish cultured with puffed floating feed can save 5-10% of feed compared with powder/flour feed or other pellet feed.
3.Puffed Floating Fish Feed Can Protect Water Environment
puffed floating fish feed can reduce the pollution of water quality. The floating fish feed manufactured by this fish pellet making machine will not dissolve in the water for a long time, and the high-quality floating fish feed can float for about 24 hours and it is easy to observe and control the feeding, etc. It is extremely beneficial to environmental protection and to the growth of fish.
steps of making floating fish feed pellet
1.crushing raw material—- feed crusher machine
Raw material ingredients should be grinded to the required size by feed grinder. hammer mill, also called Wide chamber Fine feed Hammer Mill, is mainly applied to fine grinding of meals for special aqua feed.
2. mixing raw material—feed mixer machine
Mixing the material thoroughly can ensure extruding efficiency and improve the feed quality.the feed mixer can be customized with atomizing spraying system which will add liquid like molasses and grease to material more evenly.
3. extruding raw material— floating feed pellet making machine
Our floating fish feed pellet making machine can be divided into two types: dry type fish feed processing machine and wet type fish feed processing machine. The wet type is with the conditioner and need to equip the steam boiler. The dry type fish feed production line is cheaper while the capacity of the wet type fish feed making machine is higher, so usually the wet type fish feed extruder is suitable for large feed pellet factory and the dry type fish feed processing machine is better and economic for the small and medium size user or factory.
4. drying final pellets—feed pellet dryer
Our mesh belt dryer is a continuous convective belt dryer. Pellets formed through the extruder are stacked in layers on a wire mesh or perforated plate belt conveyor and conveyed continuously through drying chambers. During this process, the drying air is passed repeatedly through the products layer until pellets have the optimum moisture content before leaving the dryer. While if you choose wet type fish feed machine, we recommend the gas type pellet dryer.
4. cooling final pellets—feed pellet cooler
Pellet cooling When the temperature of the oil-sprayed pellets increases, they become soft, and can easily break. To avoid loss in this regard, the feed pellets must be cooled, and are consequently hardened. The cooling type adopted by most fish pellet plants is the counter flow cooler where the fish feed pellets are in opposite direction to the air cooling them.
5. packing final pellets—automatic packing machine
To make the finished pellets easy to store, transport and catch the clients’ eyes, they should be packed properly. With our electronic weighing and packing machine, the finished pellets can be packed into bags, weighed, conveyed, and sealed automatically, which saves labor and time greatly and meet the requirements of large scale production. For this packing machine, automatic heat typing code, automatic bag sewing and automatic thread cutting can be optional functions.
