what is animal feed pellet machine?
pellet mill, according to Wikipedia, is a type of mill or machine press used to create pellets from powdered material. it can be divided into flat die type and ring die type, in this article,we mainly talk about flat die type. animal feed pellet machine is that flat die type which is used to produce pellet feed for animal and livestock like for cattle feed pellet, goat feed pellet, deer feed pellet, pig feed pellet, equine feed pellet, horse feed pellet, rabbit feed pellet, duck feed pellet, chicken feed pellet, bird feed pellet and so on. this animal feed pellet making machine is the main feed processing equipment which is currently manufactured by our factory.
It is an animal feed making machine that our factory’s scientific and technical personnel have repeatedly researched, improved and carefully manufactured on the basis of advanced flat die type animal feed pellet mill machine at domestic and abroad, and accumulated many years of production experience. The gear of the car differential gear is used as the transmission, which avoids the slippage of the traditional belt transmission, and the belt wears too fast. Different models are designed. It is an ideal animal feed processing machine for farmers and feed manufacturing factory.
this animal feed machine has various production capacity from 50kg/h to 1200kg/hr, which is divided into small scale capacity and large capacity on the base of production. small scale capacity ranged 50-80kg/h, 100-150kg/h, 150-200kg/h, which is good to small farm and production output of 500kg/h and above are very suitabl for medium size farm or feed manufacturing factory.
this animal feed making machine has two choices on power supply, it can be driven by eletric motor and diesel engine motor, diesel engine motor type is very good to the clients who has no 3 phase electricity or even no electricity at all.

Structure of animal feed making machine
This animal feed making machine is mainly composed of the power unit, inlet and outlet, press roller, and pressing plate. Among them, the power unit can be driven by an all-copper motor or a diesel engine. It is equipped with a geared motor, which can obtain greater torque while reducing the speed. The size of the discharge port can be customized according to customer needs.
Working principle of animal feed pellet machine
when feed pelleting process,the powder raw materials go into the pelleting champer through the feeding hopper,under the press and friction between the rollers and flat die of the animal feed pellet machine, the raw materials are extruded from the die holes and formed pellets. the temperature can reach to about 65-70 degrees, which can completely kill some bacterium and health to animals.the die and the press rollers are adopted best steel, which is hot quenched. So the wear-resisting property and life time of this kind of feed pellet mill is increased by 3–5 times
When starting to produce pellet feed, the raw materials should be slowly put into the animal feed pellet mill to slowly increase the temperature of the die mold. If too much raw material is put into the animal feed pellet mill when it is just started, the pellet machine mold is likely to be blocked, and should increase with the temperature of the animal feed pellet making machine, since the productivity of the livestock feed pellet machine varies according to the characteristics of the raw material, the feed rate must also be adjusted
Features of animal feed machine

The animal feed making machine is capable of producing feed for different poultry and livestock animals. This means you can feed all your animals using one machine.
This animal feed machine is mainly suitable for the processing of rabbit feed pellet, cattle feed pellet, chicken feed pellet, goat feed pellet, pig feed pellet, horse feed pellet and industrial pellets, widely used in industry, plastic pellets, organic fertilizer pellets, wood pellets, etc.
The corn can be added directly without crushing. The pellet feed processed by this animal feed making machine has a smooth surface and moderate hardness. During the pellet processing, the temperature rises and the nutrients inside the raw materials can be better maintained.
The finished pellet composition is uniform, the shape is neat, and the pore size of the finished pellet size can be divided into: φ2, φ2.5, φ3, φ3.5, φ4, φ5, φ6, φ7, φ8, etc. When you buy this animal feed pellet machine, clients can choose according to the needs of different growth periods of breeding animals and livestock.
By squeezing, it can kill general pathogenic microorganisms and parasites, and can prevent the occurrence of some diseases. Due to the low moisture content of the pellet feed, it is easy to store and can remain in the original state for a long time in the water, which greatly improves the utilization rate of the feed.
the animal feed making machine adopt advanced technology, high quality and reasonable structure.
the animal feed machine has low energy consumption, low noise, low failure rate
The whole animal feed pellet machine adopts high-quality materials and advanced shaft transmission device to ensure its stable performance.
The easy wearing parts and key parts are made of high-quality alloy steel and wear-resistant materials, and the service life is long.
raw materials for animal feed making machine
corn, maize, soybean, rice, wheat: contain about 10-14% of protein and also contain vitamin B1, B2, B6 and small quantity of enzyme.
Rapeseed Meal, cotton seed meal: high protein-containing material that can be used as a feed for livestock and poultry. Typical meal contains around 38% of protein; however it also contains about 12% crude fiber and glucosinolates, specific components of Cruciferae plants
straw meal, grass meal, rice bran, wheat chaff: contain fiber, control many types of fish diseases
grains like corn,soybean,wheat do not need to be crushed before pelleting,our animal feed pellet making machine can press them into pellets directly, but if you manufacturing other materials like straw, grass, alfalfa etc, you have to crush them into powder form and then pelleting them, when you manufacturing your own animal feed, single raw material do not also a mixer machine, but if you use several material, it is better to use a mixer machine, thus powder raw material can be mixed evenly.

adjust and operation of animal feed pellet machine
only starting up the animal feed machine after adding hyperbolic gear oil to gearbox
install the animal feed processing machine smoothly and stably, run the livestock feed pellet machine in the direction indicated by the arrow on the machine, check if there is any bolts loose, loosen the clearance adjustment screw on the axle seat of the pressing roller, so that the animal feed manufacturing machine is in a no-load state, It can be used after starting and running normally
Before the new animal feed pellet mill machine is used for the first time, take 10 catties of sawdust (grass powder) and 1 kg of flour mixed with oil as the grinding material for the new feed processing machine and make the mixture mixing well
If there are more refined fibers in processing animal feed, about 5% water should be added in the raw materials,If there are too many concentrates in the mixed feed, the amount of water added can be reduced as appropriate.When the processing is almost completed, the remaining material is about 5 catties, and adding a little grinding material mixed with oil in advance, which is beneficial to startup next time.
After processing, loosen the clearance adjustment screw to keep the roller in a free state. After the animal feed processing machine is stopped, remove the residual material from the upper and lower of the pelleting room, especially the residual material at the bottom of the shaker to avoid damage to the bearing.
