FAQs of bird food factory


How to use bird food machine to improve production efficiency?

In today’s fiercely competitive market environment, improving production efficiency is the foundation of a bird food factory. As a kind of efficient, energy-saving and environmentally friendly feed production equipment, the feed production line is of great significance for improving production efficiency. This article will discuss how to use the ruminant feed production line to improve production efficiency from the following aspects.

(1) Optimize production process

The production process of the bird food factory directly affects production efficiency. Enterprises should choose appropriate production processes based on their own actual conditions and continuously optimize and improve them. For example, advanced automated control systems are used to automate and intelligentize the production process, reduce manual intervention, and improve production efficiency.

At the same time, we will strengthen process training, improve employees’ operating skills and awareness of equipment maintenance, ensure the normal operation of equipment, reduce failure rates, and improve production efficiency.

(2) Improve equipment performance

The performance of the animal feed production line directly affects production efficiency. Bird food factories should choose equipment with superior performance and reliable quality to ensure the stable operation of the production line. At the same time, strengthen the maintenance of equipment and conduct regular equipment inspections and repairs to ensure that the equipment is in good working condition.

In addition, advanced technological transformations are introduced to improve the energy-saving performance of equipment, reduce production costs, and improve production efficiency.

(3) Optimize raw material structure

The feed production line has certain requirements on the structure of raw materials. Bird food factories should rationally match raw materials and optimize the raw material structure based on market demand and product characteristics.

For example, high-quality silage and concentrated feed are used to improve the nutritional value and quality of the feed; additives suitable for the growth needs of ruminants are selected to improve the market competitiveness of the product.

At the same time, we will strengthen the management of raw material procurement to ensure the quality and stable supply of raw materials and reduce production losses caused by raw material problems.

(4) Improve product quality

Product quality is a key factor affecting sales. Bird food factories should strengthen product quality control to ensure that product quality meets standard requirements.

For example, strict control of temperature, humidity and other parameters during raw material screening and processing is required to avoid returns due to quality issues; product testing is strengthened to ensure that products comply with relevant laws and standards. In addition, strengthening after-sales service, promptly solving customer problems and complaints, and improving customer satisfaction will help increase product sales and market share.

In short, as a high-efficiency, energy-saving, and environmentally friendly bird feed production equipment, the feed production line’s application is of great significance to bird food factories in improving production efficiency. Bird food factories should start from optimizing production processes, improving equipment performance, optimizing raw material structure, and improving product quality to comprehensively improve production efficiency and enhance the market competitiveness of enterprises.


How to save energy consumption in different links of bird feed production?

Energy consumption is the largest expenditure for bird food factories besides raw material costs and personnel wages. Especially for bird feed mills that mainly produce pellet feed, energy consumption accounts for an important proportion of processing costs.

So how can we maximize the cost in different aspects of bird feed production? How to reduce energy consumption and save costs?

(1) Save electricity

Energy consumption in the bird food factory process is electricity, and “saving electricity” is the key to saving energy and reducing consumption. All departments cooperate with each other to scientifically arrange production plans to reduce downtime and no-load time caused by frequent changes of varieties.

In addition, central control workers should shut down unnecessary equipment in a timely manner to avoid idling of equipment.

(2) Boiler and steam system

Properly soften and chemically treat water to prevent scaling and corrosion in boiler water, and use correct blowdown procedures to remove solids and impurities at the bottom of the boiler to avoid excessive blowdown. To ensure that the boiler and steam system are in ideal operating condition.

(3) Raw material crushing link

The raw materials that are difficult to crush and those that are easy to crush can be mixed and evenly fed with a variable speed feeder for fine crushing. Be careful not to crush the raw materials too finely.

Add classification equipment after coarse grinding and fine grinding to reduce excessive grinding of raw materials. Hammers and pulse bags should be replaced regularly to improve crushing efficiency.

(4) Ingredient mixing link

  • Improve the operational skills and coordination level of central control personnel. Central control personnel must ensure that the mixer works continuously, provides reasonable feeding and determines the appropriate switching time.
  • The design of silos and scale hoppers should ensure that materials can be completely discharged by gravity.
  • Use variable frequency speed controller to make the feeder motor operate efficiently and stably.
  • Correctly set the ingredients and mixing cycle, and reasonably arrange manual feeding and liquid addition operations.

(5) Granulation link

  • Increase the opening ratio of ring molds and screens, thereby improving the production efficiency of bird feed pellet machines and crushers and reducing power consumption. If the ring mold is damaged, it should be repaired in time.
  • Reasonably control the output and adjust the die roller gap to extend the life of the ring die and pressure roller.
  • Improve the conditioning effect by adjusting or replacing the paddles of the conditioner of the bird feed pellet mills and adding a stirring rod to the conditioner.
