Factors restricting the animal feed plant cost
- The size of the animal feed making plant production scale. If the production scale of animal feed processing plant is expanded, the number of animal feed mill equipment or animal feed production lines needs to be increased, and the total animal livestock poultry feed mill plant investment price will basically increase proportionally.
- Animal feed plant machinery model selection. According to different raw materials, formulas and feed types, the selection of equipment varies greatly. The price of animal feed plant equipment in developed countries is generally 2-3 times more expensive than ours, and the operating power consumption cost and maintenance cost are higher.
- Animal feed processing technology. The more complex the animal feed manufacturing process, the more feed making equipment is required, and the animal feed plant cost is relatively high. The higher the degree of automation in the animal feed mill plant, the higher the feed plant cost.
Factors that affect feed mill plant profit
- Prices of different quality animal feed plant machinery in different regions.
- The operating cost of the animal feed mill machine consists of workers’ wages, water and electricity costs, and wearing parts costs.
- The management of feed manufacturers, conscientious management personnel and skilled operators are the key to profit improvement.
Tips: Properly increasing the investment in good quality animal feed mill plant equipment can prolong the service life of all accessories, reduce maintenance costs, and greatly increase production, which means that costs can be recovered in a short period of time, effectively increasing profit margins and returns.
Animal feed mill plant design
—— RICHI MACHINERY ——
In the design of complete sets of animal feed making plant, animal feed manufacturing technology and animal feed mill machine are important conditions to ensure the quality of feed. Only with reliable animal feed mill equipment and scientific animal feed manufacturing process flow can high-quality compound feed be produced.
Adopting a perfect, reasonable and flexible process and selecting advanced, efficient and high-quality equipment are always the goals pursued by the design of the animal feed mill factory. Feed processes vary across the globe and are mainly divided into two categories: grinding and then batching (Americas) and batching and then grinding (Europe).
Here we only take the process of first crushing and then batching as an example. The overall animal feed manufacturing process includes eight parts: raw material receiving, pellet crushing, ingredient mixing, granulation and puffing, liquid spraying, finished product discharge, electrical control and dust removal system. I believe that after reading the following details, you will have a deep understanding of “how feed mills work”.
Raw material receiving and cleaning System
The receiving of raw materials is the first animal feed mill plant process to ensure the quality of feed products. The setting of receiving equipment and process should ensure the safe storage of raw materials, and the cleaning equipment of raw materials should be reasonably combined in the receiving process.
The raw material receiving process generally includes conveying equipment, magnetic separation equipment, primary cleaning screen, metering equipment and vertical silos.
Impurities mixed in feed raw materials, if not cleaned in advance, will affect product quality, even affect animal growth, damage animal feed mill machine during processing, and affect production.
Generally, the cleaning of raw materials such as animal-derived feed, minerals, and trace elements is mainly completed in the raw material processing plant. Grain raw materials and their processing by-products should be cleaned of ropes, cloth sheets, plastic films, sand and gravel, metals and other sundries. The usual method of cleaning raw materials is: first screening, then magnetic separation, and supplemented by suction and dust removal facilities.
Crushing can improve the digestibility of nutrients, and the size of feed crushing particle size directly affects the digestion and absorption of animals, crushing cost, subsequent animal feed manufacturing technology and product quality. Controlling the crushing particle size of materials is a key link in animal feed production.
Different animal species, rearing stages, raw material composition, conditioning and maturation and forming methods have different requirements for feed crushing particle size. The crushing particle size should not only meet the needs of animals, but also make the granulation effect, power consumption and pulverization rate more reasonable.
Ingredients are the core part of the animal feed mill plant technology, and the correct implementation of the formula is guaranteed by the ingredient process. And mixing is an important link to ensure feed quality and improve feed remuneration. The system generally includes batching bins, various batching scales, hand feeding ports, mixers and subsequent conveying equipment, and its core is batching scales (including feeders) and mixers.
The mixing of raw materials is to mix the crushed bulk raw materials, liquid feed soybean oil, molasses, etc. and feed additive premix according to the proportion of the feed formula.
Granulation or Extrusion System
The pelletizing and extruding system is the system with the largest investment in the animal feed mill plant. It is mainly composed of feeder, conditioner, feed extruder, animal feed pelletizer, cooler, crusher, grading screen and conveying equipment. The external and internal quality of the finished feed depends mainly on the condition of the pelletizing & extruding system.
If you want to process powdered feed, then after the ingredient mixing system, you can go directly to the animal feed packaging section. In addition, the extruding system is not only used for processing aquatic feed and pet feed, but more and more animal feed plants have begun to extrude feed, which has been used on a large scale in some developed countries. No matter what your needs are, we can customize the corresponding process flow for you and provide high-quality animal feed pelleting machineor twin-screw extruder.
In order to control the conditioning quality of the feed, in order to control the maturity, density, pulverization rate, cooling temperature and moisture of the extruded pellet feed, a reasonable steam supply and control system and conditioning, extrusion, expansion, drying, cooling and screening equipment, and scientifically adjust the control parameters according to the different requirements of the product to obtain products that are satisfied by customers.
Cooling & screening system
The heat-processed feed is generally moist and high in temperature, and must be cooled in order to facilitate storage. Counter-flow coolers are replacing traditional vertical and horizontal coolers with their low cost and excellent cooling effect.
Counter-flow coolers are not only suitable for pellet feed, but also for flake extruded materials. In addition, in order to improve the granulation efficiency and reduce energy consumption, people often use large die holes to granulate and then crush the large particles through a pellet crumbler.
After the granules are crushed, they should enter the grading screen for classification, the large pellets will be returned to the animal feed crusher to be crushed again, and the fine powder will enter the animal feed pellet making machine for secondary granulation. Commonly used grading screens are plane rotary and vibrating, but the latter is used more.
Finished product discharge
There are two forms of finished product discharge: packaged and bulk. Due to the relatively developed transportation in some countries, a large number of feed bulk trucks are used. For most countries and territories, the bulk of commercial feed is still packaged.
Packaging is divided into manual and automatic. Most small and medium-sized animal feed mill plants use manual packaging. When choosing an automatic packaging system, attention should be paid to the accuracy and stability of the packaging scale and the working reliability of the automatic sewing machine.
Electrical control System
The electrical control system is the concentrated expression of the automation degree of the feed mill plant. Due to the difference in production scale, labor cost and investment capacity, the degree of automation of each animal cattle poultry chicken livestock feed mill plant shows a great difference.
At RICHI, you can choose the degree of automation you want according to your actual needs.
Dust removal system
Animal feed mill plants are prone to generate a large amount of dust in the animal feed manufacturing process. In order to control dust pollution, ensure the health of operators, and maintain the normal operation of animal feed mill equipment, it is essential to set up a reasonable dust removal system.
The dust removal system mostly adopts the combination of single-point suction dust removal and centralized air network dust removal. As for the specific dust removal method, it depends on the specific situation.
In the process design of the animal poultry stock feed mill plant, Richi Machinery will consider the performance of a single machine, and will also consider the overall matching, economy and practicability of the equipment. So that in actual production, you can produce high-quality products at a lower cost to meet the needs of the market.
How To Choose animal feed plant machinery?
Under the background of the continuous and stable development of the feed industry, the feed equipment and production process have been developed rapidly.
Generally, the process flow of an animal feed mill plant consists of raw material receiving, crushing, batching, mixing, granulation, cooling and screening, and finished product packaging; the core production equipment is hammer mill feed grinder, feed mixer machine, animal feed pellet mill, etc.
animal feed Pellet making Machine
Equipment selection plays a vital role in feed production and ensuring feed quality. The following will introduce the role and selection of these types of animal feed plant machinery in production.
How to choose an Animal feed Grinder Machine?
The power equipment of the pulverizer generally accounts for about 1/3 of the total power equipment of the animal feed mill plant.
How to reasonably select the advanced pulverizing equipment, design the best process route, and use the electric feed mill grinder correctly is very important for the feed production enterprise. The SFSP series of electric feed grinders are generally used for livestock and poultry feeds.
They are widely used because of their high efficiency, good crushing performance and wide adaptability. They can crush feed raw materials to 40-60 mesh, and are suitable for various pig feeds, chicken feeds, the production of cattle and sheep feed, this model has the following characteristics:
- Adopt large diameter and low speed structure, low noise and vibration reduction;
- The feeding guide mechanism is set up, which can make the raw materials enter the pulverizer from the left or the right, and the rotor can be switched between positive and negative to ensure that the tangential feeding of the material is compatible with the turning of the rotor, and there is an emergency stop function;
- The screen is directly inserted and then pressed by the operating door, which makes it easy to load and unload;
- The wear-resistant hammer using tungsten carbide surfacing welding can increase the life of the ordinary hammer by 7~8 times;
- The additional safety device can make the pulverizer unable to start after the operation door is opened to ensure safety.
How to choose a feed mixing machine?
The main technical indicators of the feed mixer are: mixing amount per batch, mixing uniformity, mixing speed and residual rate of materials in the machine.
- Higher requirements for mixing uniformity: it is stipulated in the feed standard that the mixing uniformity variation coefficient of compound feed is ≤10%, and the mixing uniformity variation coefficient of premixed feed is ≤5%;
- The mixing time should be short: the mixing time determines the mixing cycle, and the length of the mixing time can affect the productivity of the animal feed production plant;
- The residual rate in the machine should be low: in order to avoid cross-contamination and ensure the quality of each batch of products,
- The residual rate in the compound feed mixer is less than or equal to 1%, and the premixed feed mixer is less than or equal to 0.8%. The current advanced models can reach below 0.01%;
- The feed mixture machine should meet the mechanical performance requirements of reasonable structure, simplicity, no leakage, easy inspection, sampling and cleaning.
At present, the most widely used in the market is the double-shaft paddle feed mixing equipment, which mixes lightly and softly, and the mixture has no segregation phenomenon, especially when the particulate material (trace additive) is in a fluid state, the diffusion mixing effect is better; the material is in the mixer.
How to choose feed pellet machine?
Animal pellet making machine is the key equipment for producing pellet feed, and it is also one of the equipment with the largest power consumption in the animal feed mill plant. Its energy consumption accounts for more than 40% of the total production energy consumption.
At present, the ring die feed pellet mill is mainly used in the market, which is characterized by large output, uniform discharge, good shape and stable quality.
According to the different driving methods, the ring die animal feed pellet machine can be divided into gear type and belt type. Generally, small and medium-sized animal feed mill plants use more belt type animal feed pelleting machines.
Due to the characteristics of flexible transmission, the finished product has a smooth surface and beautiful shape. It is accepted by the majority of animal feed production plants, and its cost is relatively low.
The working principle of the ring die animal feed granulator is basically the same. The evaluation of its performance during model selection is mainly based on the rationality of structural design and the ease of operation.
It should be comprehensively considered from several aspects such as degree, selection of structural parameters, processing means, manufacturing level, selection of parts and materials, purchase channels and control functions.
When the animal feed pelletizer is in use, the material should be strictly tempered and tempered: the material must be tempered before being granulated, the pressure of the steam must be stable (4~8bar), and the steam must be dehydrated before tempering , If the steam contains a lot of moisture, it will cause blockage of the granulation.
How to choose Twin Screw Extruder?
It is mainly suitable for the production of finished products of special feeds (pet food, high end aqua fish feed), and is also increasingly used in the processing of livestock and poultry feeds.
The use of the twin screw extruder in food processing can completely destroy the harmful factors in the feed, with high starch gelatinization degree, high feed digestion and absorption rate, safety and reliability, and is an indispensable equipment in the production of special feed.
The twin screw extruder machine is divided into wet method and dry method. The structural parameters and process parameters of the twin screw food extruder are generally:
- The screw compression ratio is 1:4~2:4;
- The pressure in the extrusion cavity is above 4.9×10-6~3.43×10-7Pa;
- The temperature in the machine is about 150~220℃;
- The puffing rate of the material is more than 1.5 to 8.0 times;
- The gelatinization degree is more than 95%.
The properties of the feed are different, and the parameters of the screw and the screw sleeve of the extruder need to be different, otherwise it is difficult for the twin screw extrusion machine to achieve the best effect.
RICHI has a variety of extruders of different varieties and specifications to choose from. In short, in addition to the comparison of the above parameters when choosing a model, it is necessary to pay attention to the rationality and advancement of the pre-conditioning and tempering part and the processing performance of the screw.
How to choose a pellet cooler？
Cooling system is to make the product after granulation maintain good storage performance, and it is an indispensable procedure in animal feed mill plant.
For a long time, the cooling after granulation is cross-flow cooling. Although it can meet the requirements of use and the temperature of the cooled granules is less than 7 °C, it will not meet the standard if it is not careful during operation.
The counter-flow cooler is a model with a more reasonable cooling principle, and its convection heat exchange system is the most complete and reasonable, so it has been rapidly popularized as soon as it appears. The cooling temperature of the pellet cooling machine can be lower than room temperature 3 ℃, the cooling effect is extremely ideal.
For the selection of the pellet cooler machine, since the models produced by each factory are similar, so only need to pay attention to the manufacturing quality, materials and accessories, such as:
- How the automatic control effect of the feeding and discharging linkage mechanism is, whether the main part is made of stainless steel, etc.;
- In terms of capacity selection, both large-scale models can be used, or two machines can be stacked to increase the output;
- The selection of fans and separators has a great relationship with the use effect, and the suction pipe should be made of stainless steel sheet, otherwise there will be water vapor. It has a great impact on the service life and should be paid attention to, otherwise it is impossible to obtain the most ideal use effect.
How to choose a pellet crumbler?
A feed pellet crumbler is a device that further processes the pellet size in animal feed mill plant.
At present, almost all crumblers use roller crumblers, and their performance is mainly evaluated by the rationality of the pellet crumbler machine structure, structural parameters, process parameters, and processing level. The roller diameter is large and the pressure is large, and it is easy to be broken.
There are two types of roller teeth, one is crossed helical teeth, the number of teeth in this combination should not be too much to reduce the powder yield; the second type is the combination of straight teeth and helical teeth, and the powder yield of this combination is also less , the two types of tooth arrangement can meet the requirements of use.
The powder extraction rate should be controlled within 3%. In actual use, it is very important to adjust the distance between the two rollers. Otherwise, if the distance between the two rollers is not equal, the product will be uneven.
Therefore, a watch gauge should be provided at the adjustment handwheel for easy operation. When selecting models, attention must also be paid to the size of the inlet of the pellet crumblers, which must be exactly the same as the outlet of the cooler, otherwise the powder output rate will be increased.
(If you want to process pellets above 2mm, you don’t need a pellet crumbler)
How to choose a grading sieve?
The grading screener used in animal feed mill plants mainly includes vibrating grading screen and rotary vibrating screen, both of which can achieve better results.
After crumbing, the material will be graded and screened to remove the powder part, so as to ensure that the material has pure small particles and achieve the best feeding effect.
The vibration grading screen should adjust the amplitude of the screen body according to the nature and flow of the material to achieve the best effect.
Rotary vibrating screen is one of the commonly used equipment because of the long distance between the screen surfaces, so the classification effect is better. In short, these two types of models can meet the requirements of use, and the classification efficiency can reach more than 98% to 99%.
How to choose animal feed packaging machine?
It is recommended that animal feed mill plants who purchase packaging scales should choose products that comply with national product standards and metrological verification regulations wisely.
In the field that requires high measurement accuracy and fast packaging speed, consideration should be given to reducing the weighing range of the scale. For products with only one packaging specification, only one packaging scale with one weighing value can be selected.
For sites that require fast packaging, under the premise of meeting the contract requirements of both the supplier and the buyer, or meeting industry standards, consideration should be given to appropriately reducing the weighing accuracy and reducing the weighing range. For automatic bagging machines that require a wide weighing range, on the one hand, it can be considered to appropriately reduce the requirements of packaging speed and weighing accuracy, and on the other hand, manufacturers can be allowed to provide an animal feed bagging machine with different weighing accuracy in different weighing values.
In terms of safeguarding the interests of the buyer, in addition to filling in the various requirements for the animal feed packaging machine in the purchase contract, the buyer carefully looks at the content marked on the product nameplate when using the animal feed bagger. In addition, you should also carefully understand the variety of materials that the product is suitable for, weighing accuracy, weighing speed, weighing range, etc., and secondly, you should understand the range of working conditions, such as temperature, humidity, power supply and other indicators.
Doing a good job in the selection of core animal feed mill plant equipment can achieve twice the result with half the effort for a continuous production feed factory, which can effectively reduce equipment maintenance time and improve feed production efficiency.
In addition to the above core animal feed plant machinery, the animal feed plant also has some supporting equipment, such as scraper conveyor, bucket elevator, feeding auger, distributor, etc., because it has little impact on the quality of finished feed products, and most of them are general animal feed mill machine, not described in detail here. But please remember that Richi Machinery designs and manufactures all equipment, components for animal feed production plants, and you can always ask for a quote.
