What is floating fish feed production line?
floating fish feed production line is a full complete and automatic fish feed production plant. The complete floating fish feed pellet production line includes fish feed pellet machine, fish feed crusher, fish feed mixer, fish feed dryer and other necessary equipment. The floating fish feed plant can process corn, soybean, wheat, grains, protein, fish meal, bone meal and other raw materials into pellets, and finally manufacturing granules with different shapes, unique flavors, rich nutrition and fine texture, which are widely used in goldfish, tropical fish, catfish, shrimp, turtle and other aquatic feed,.
this floating fish feed mill plant is multifunctional, it can also produce pet feed like for dogs, cats, etc. the floating fish feed manufacturing plant is the best choice for large and medium feed factories and farms. This fish feed processing line has different output for customers to choose from large to small.there are 300 kg/h,500kg/h,1000kg/h,2000kg/h etc. on the production capacity.
This floating fish feed processing plant is newly developed by our factory to meet the needs of intensive production of kinds of fish feed pellets. The floating fish feed production line has many specifications, and can produce floating fish feed, sinking fish feed, pet feed, livestock feed, etc.
what equipment needed for floating fish feed plant
fish feed crusher machine
The raw materials should be crushed to the required particle size by a fish feed crusher machine. Raw material crushing is a crucial step, if the crushing fineness is not up to the requirements, problems may occur in the production of floating fish feed,below is the requirement for fineness of crushed raw materials.
Requirement of raw material crushing fineness for processing floating fish feed
|die mold aperture φ (mm)||grinding fineness required|
|1.0||95% reach to 90-100 mesh|
|1.5||95% reach to 80 mesh|
|2.0||95% reach to 80 mesh|
|3.0||95% reach to 60 mesh|
|4.0||95% reach to 60 mesh|
|5.0||95% reach to 60 mesh|
fish feed mixer machine
When using a variety of different raw materials to manufacturing fish feed, mixing is necessary, and the full mixing of materials can ensure production efficiency and improve feed quality.
floating feed extruder machine
extruder machine is the most important equipment in the entire production line and it is the core part of the production of floating fish feed, powdery raw materials are finally formed into floating pellets through the extruder machine.
fish feed dryer machine
Why do you need a dryer? When producing fish feed pellets, 25%-35% of raw materials are required to be added. If the finished feed pellets are not dried, it will not be easy to store, pack and transport.
fish feed cooler machine
It’s already dried up in front and already easy to store and pack, so why do you need a cooler? Because the moisture in the pellets is evaporated by steam or high temperature during drying to achieve the purpose of drying, but the temperature generated by the steam or high temperature during the drying process is very high, if it is not cooled and stored or packaging directly, the temperature will generate moisture and affect storage and packaging.
the above are the main equipment needed in floating fish feed production,There are other auxiliary equipment such as conveyors, silos, packaging machines, etc., customers can choose according to their needs.
floating fish feed manufacturing process flow chart
The fish feed production process can be divided into two types in terms of technology and equipment flow
preparing raw materials → mixing raw materials → transporting raw materials → extruding raw materials → transporting finished pellets → drying finished pellets→ cooling finished pellets → screening finished pellets→ spraying oil → seasoning → packaging
Equipment Needed Process
mixer machine → conveyor machine → extruder machine→ conveyor machine → dryer machine→ cooler machine→ vibrating screen → conveyor machine → oil spraying machine → automatic packaging machine
features of floating fish feed mill plant
the floating fish feed mill plant has advanced technology, high capacity and low energy consumption.
The modular structure is convenient for assembly and disassembly, facilitating the shipment and installation.
PLC controlled the whole floating fish feed manufacturing plant, alarm device is available. The operation is simple and convenient.
Final pellet shapes and sizes can be various by changing the mould. For fish and shrimp feed pellet, the floating time in water can be adjusted by the extrusion degree adjustment.
Processing is processed at high temperature instantaneous process, greatly reducing the decomposition of nutrients in feed, at the same time improve the protein (through the degeneration of protein) and starch (through starch paste) digestibility, to improve the palatability of the product.
In order to ensure the quality and the capacity, there is the special pressure-increased device. Besides, the electric heating device improve the feed expansion rate.
raw material for floating fish feed production
corn,maize,soybean, rice : contain about 10-14% of protein and also contain vitamin B1, B2, B6 and small quantity of enzyme.
straw meal,grass meal,rice bran,wheat chaff: contain fiber, control many types of fish diseases
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
cotton seeds,sunflower seeds,rapeseed: contain about 54% protein. It is a better ingredients for supplementary fish feed.
fish meal,fish oil: 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
