pet food production line processing dog food and cat food

pet food production line introduction

The pet food plant is completely automatic pet food production plant for cat food and dog food, which is mainly composed of raw material processing system, extrusion system, drying system, seasoning system and control system. The pet food production line has high stability and automation performance, and can control the expansion of the extrudate in various ways. Refers to controlling the texture of the final product. The machines are all made of stainless steel, the dog food production line has a reasonable design and a high degree of automation; the screws are made of alloy steel, with a building block system structure and self-cleaning function.

The pet food processing line uses high-expansion corn meal grains as the basic raw material, supplemented with bone meal, meat, protein, vitamins, fibers and other nutrients, and cooperates with a screw extruder to produce pets of different shapes through instant extrusion through strong extrusion. Dog food, cat food and other food granules, seasoned and coated after drying, to improve the taste of the finished product, and the last set of automatic packaging. aboutraw materials for dog food, we list fruits and vegetables dogs can eat in our other blog post.

common steel pet food plant

There are two kinds of pet food manufacturing plant, one is stainless steel pet food plant, and the other is common steel pet food plant, the wet type is equipped with a boiler, which can continuously provide hot steam. It can produce all kinds of feed and food, such as aquatic feed, catfish feed pellets, goldfish feed pellets, shrimp feed pellets, floating feed for crab, loach, bullfrog, etc., as well as pet food such as dog food and cat food.

Particle size can feed different size fish from 0.9-15 mm. This dog food production line has high production capacity and high product quality, our pet cat food production plant is the first choice for medium and large pet cat food processing plant, aquaculture farms and pet food industries.

features of pet food production plant

* Precise control of process parameters and automation to ensure optimized granule quality: gelatinization, expansion, texture and consistent quality. These quality criteria can be achieved because screws ensure homogeneous processing and positive pumping. The processing of the viscous paste does not depend on the friction between the screws and the barrel.

The embedded automatic temperature control and adjustment systems of dog food pellet line, the modular screw configurations and screw speeds are easily programmed and contribute to the dog food production line’s high performance.

* Intelligent pet food production line : recipe management (recording, access, supervision), process management (start/stop), installed sensors, control and maintenance. Advanced line automation contributes to lower operating costs and facilitates consistent nominal production.

* Creative shapes and finishing through the use of special dies to create innovative shapes and differently-textured products (co-extruded) ,Ingredient flexibility to process a wide range of raw materials with high fat content when needed.

* Reduced maintenance of dog food production line, using standard parts for extrusion and drying equipment, easy access to different machine components.

raw materials of pet food processing line


Fat represents an important source of energy and is also a source of essential fatty acids and a determinant of palatability. Fats provide important fatty subunits, omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-6 fatty acids are essential for skin and coat maintenance and proper membrane structure. Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to be important for blood clotting and reducing inflammation.

This is an essential fatty acid for dogs and cats. Fats also help maintain body temperature, control inflammation, and more. Fat is the main form of energy stored in the body, providing twice as much energy as carbohydrates or protein. Carbohydrates or proteins are found in meat, poultry, fish and vegetable oils such as flax and vegetable oils.

Chicken meat, lamb meat and wild boar meat, fish meat, as well as eggs, Protein is usually the most basic nutrient for animals and the source of the building blocks of life (ie, amino acids). Dogs, being carnivores, need amino acids, which are usually derived from beans, meat, and eggs. Protein is known for providing amino acids that strengthen skin, nails, muscles, tendons, ligaments and cartilage.

Minerals strengthen bones and aid in nerve transmission and muscle contraction. Maximize focus on macro and oligo elements, especially balancing according to the species, age, and pathophysiology of the animal.
In dietary formulations designed to treat specific pathological conditions, you should pay special attention to mineral compounds, increasing or decreasing the concentration of each element to compensate for specific metabolic deficiencies in some pathological conditions or to preserve the function of the relevant organs.

Carbohydrates are another great source of energy for dogs and cats. Especially carbohydrates, as they provide readily available energy. Common carbohydrate sources are plants and grains. Carbohydrates, also classified as starches (sugars) and fiber.Starch is composed of various types of sugars, such as glucose or fructose. Through digestion, dogs can easily convert sugar into usable energy.

vitamin, according to Wikipedia, is an organic molecule (or a set of molecules closely related chemically, i.e. vitamers) that is an essential micronutrient that an organism needs in small quantities for the proper functioning of its metabolism. Vitamins are responsible for promoting bone growth, blood clotting, energy production, and oxidative protection.Vitamins A, D, E, and K require fat to be absorbed, while B vitamins and vitamin C require water to be absorbed.Vitamins are essential for proper nutrition because they are the most important drivers of biochemical reactions in the body. it is important for cat food and dog food
Vitamin deficiencies manifest in some cases specific and pronounced symptoms, in others more subtle manifestations of the subject’s general debilitating state. Therefore, it is essential to ensure that you consume the right amount each day to ensure the smooth functioning of all vital functions. Natural plant extracts of grape seed and green tea enhance antioxidant effects.

Fish oil is an ingredient derived from the same small bony fish or fish trimmings as fishmeal. The fish is pressed to release the fish oil, which is then further processed into fishmeal using cooking and drying techniques.

Fish oil is a source of energy, but most importantly, it provides the only source of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for fish and human health. Like humans, most fish cannot synthesize long-chain omega-3 fatty acids in their bodies, so they must obtain them from food (for example, in the case of farmed fish, omega-3s come from small bony fish oil) or in feed of fish chips).

pet food manufacturing process

The pet food production process can be divided into two types in terms of technology and equipment flow, it is same as fish feed manufacturing process.

Technological Procedure:

preparing raw materials → mixing raw materials → transporting raw materials → extruding raw materials → drying finished food→ cooling finished food → spraying oil → seasoning → automatic packaging

Equipment Needed Process

mixer machine → conveyor machine → extruder machine → dryer machine → cooler machine → oil spraying machine → seasoning machine → automatic packaging machine

different food shape produced by pet food processing plant

This pet dog food manufacturing plant can produce pet food like for cat food and dog food in different shapes, like triangle shape, pentagram shape, bone shape, moon shape, heart shape and so on. The different die hole shapes and final product shapes can be seen in the pictures below:
