12-14T/H fish feed manufacturing plant

The construction of the 12-14t/h fish feed plant has always revolved around two topics. First, what to produce? Then how to produce?

As long as we effectively solve the above two problems during the construction of the fish feed factory, then our feed factory will be a success 80%, and other specific work done on fish feed process equipment layout, engineering manufacturing, installation, etc., are all to improve the construction of the 12-14t/h fish feed processing plant.

Therefore, choosing a suitable feed processing technology and determining the feed technological process are the most critical steps.

The processing technology and equipment in the 12-14t/h fish feed mamaking plant are hardware and an important condition to ensure the quality of the feed. Reasonable formula and high-quality raw materials can only produce high-quality compound feed with reliable processing equipment and scientific technological process.

Design of 12-14 t/h floating fish feed manufacturing plant

Since the development of the feed industry, although the technology of each fish floating feed manufacturing plant is very different, in the design of the fish feed plant, the use of perfect, reasonable and flexible technology; the selection of advanced, efficient and high-quality equipment is always the goal.

Since the feed resources of many countries are different from those of Europe, most fish extruded feed manufacturing plants adopt the American process, that is, the process of powder first and then compounding. It is also possible to customize the feed production line process of “first batching and then crushing”.

In the current aquafeed production process of 12-14t/h fish float feed manufacturing plant, the extrusion process is mostly used, which can not only improve farmers’ aquaculture feeding mode, but also save the production cost of floating aquafeed to a large extent. Different extruded feeds are used in aquaculture.

These extruded feeds will use different processing techniques in the fish feed production process, but their main production processes are basically the same.

The extrusion and puffing process is more complicated, and we need to strictly control it in the floating fish feed production process.

  • First, workers prepare the mixed materials and place them in the to-be-expanded bin. In the process of material conditioning, they also need to set moisture and temperature standards.
  • After that, the quenched and tempered materials are transported into the extruding cavity, and the high-speed rotating screw in the extruding cavity will gradually increase the temperature of the extruding cavity during the movement of the material. At the same time, the operator can also adjust the puffing appropriately pressure in the cavity.
  • With the continuous movement of the material, the temperature, humidity and pressure in the extruding adjustment gradually reach the preset fixed values, and then the mixed material will pass through the fish feed extruder machine template hole, and a pressure difference will suddenly form due to the atmospheric pressure and the pressure in the processing chamber. , so that the water vapor in the mixed material is quickly discharged, and then the processed feed pellets will expand rapidly, and the expanded feed needs to be dried, sprayed, and cooled.

In order to ensure production efficiency and reduce production costs of fish feed manufacturing plant, the above operations are usually integrated in the process of feed production. After the feed is cooled, the production personnel also need to screen and classify the extruded pellet feed, and then send the screened pellets to the extruding machine for packaging and storage.

06 General principles of fish feed manufacturing equipment selection

In general, the performance and model of the existing fish feed equipment should be considered when the processing technology is determined. For 12-14t/h fish feed mill plants, first of all, it is necessary to understand the requirements of the processing technology for equipment, and at the same time, it is necessary to grasp the relationship between the fish feed production process and the quality of the finished product and the breeding effect.

Only by fully grasping these conditions, we can choose the best complete set of fish feed equipment to produce high-quality feed products. In the selection, the key equipment of fish feed extrusion plant is generally considered first, and the selection of other supporting equipment cannot be ignored.

fish feed factory feed for fish farming
  • First of all, understand the working principle, main process parameters and structural characteristics of the fish feed machine. Because these factors determine the future production efficiency, power consumption and ease of operation and maintenance.
  • It is necessary to know the scale of the 12-14t/h fish feed pellet manufacturing plant producing the machine, the history, batch, processing methods, management and technical personnel level of the machine, etc., which will affect the reliability and stability of the equipment operation, that is, reflect the overall level of the fish feed machine.
  • You should know the material and supply channels of the main components of the equipment, such as die, pneumatic components, large-sized bearings of the main engine, etc. Because these parts directly affect the service life and the reliability of the operation.
  • To have a comprehensive and fair understanding of the use of the 12-14t/h fish extruded pellet feed manufacturing plant machine.
  • The after-sales service and spare parts supply capacity of the fish feed manufacturing plant that produces this product are related to whether the feed factory can obtain spare parts and maintenance in time in the future.
  • The price of the equipment and the distance from the equipment to the fish float feed manufacturing plant will affect the investment of the fish feed factory and the benefit of the factory in the future.
  • The selection of fish feed equipment must be consistent with the technical level and management level of the feed manufacturing plant workers, otherwise it will affect the normal operation.
fish feed factory fish feed extruder

In short, the above points should be considered comprehensively, not only the price, without considering other factors. The selection of fish feed mill equipment must be scientifically screened, and the supply and demand output between each section is strictly matched.

According to actual experience, the output of general front-end equipment needs to be 20%-30% higher than the output of the back-end to ensure the efficiency of the entire fish feed plant system. Moreover, there must be a certain forward-looking when building a 12-14t/h floating fish feed pellet manufacturing plant.

06 Necessary work before building fish feed manufacturing plant


In order to determine the scale of the proposed plant, the following investigations must first be done:

  • The variety and quantity of local feed resources and whether these resources have seasonal characteristics. For example, there is a large amount of cottonseed meal that can be used as feed in a certain place. It is a by-product of the oil mill. Because the production of the oil mill is seasonal, the 12-14t/h fish floating feed mill plant must also make special considerations for its storage and processing.
  • The local lack of available quantity of raw materials and the possibility of long-term stable supply.
  • The current situation and recent development plan of local animal husbandry, as well as the demand for feed.
  • Through the investigation, after the quantity of raw materials purchased and products sold, the production scale of the proposed 12-14t/h fish feed manufacturing line can be determined accordingly.
fish feed factory fish feed machine price
Selection of factory site

The choice of the 12-14t/h fish feed factory site is a problem that cannot be ignored in the construction of the factory. Since the daily throughput of raw materials and finished products of large and medium-sized compound fish food manufacturing plants is relatively large (above 10t/h), the plant site must be located close to roads, railways or waterways, and should be as close as possible to grain production areas and grain depots. and animal husbandry bases, in order to reduce the transportation and storage costs of raw materials and finished products, and make production, purchase and sales rationally circulated.

General layout and construction requirements

The overall layout of the 12-14t/h fish extrusion feed manufacturing plant should not only ensure the integrity and rationality of the process layout and the smoothness of the roads in the plant, but also take into account the overall situation, occupy less arable land, and try to make the layout as compact as possible.

fish feed factory fish feed plant project report

The kind of fish feed manufacturing plants that are built in the way of land acquisition and expansion in stages often make the layout of the fish food factory area fragmented and the process layout is unreasonable, so it must be absolutely avoided. All buildings in the whole fish extruded feed manufacturing plant should strive to be in harmony, and the greening of the factory area should also be given due consideration.

The layout of the fish feed manufacturing plant area should highlight the main body, and the main building should be placed in a prominent position. When conditions permit, appropriate exterior decoration should be carried out to make the shape of the workshop as perfect as possible.

When the process and civil engineering design of 12-14t/h fish feed making plant are not completed, resolutely do not start construction blindly, and oppose “design, construction, and production at the same time”, especially the main project must not be constructed or put into production in stages, so as to avoid undue losses.

Process flow of 12.5 t/h fish feed manufacturing system

01 Raw material receiving and cleaning:

Bulk raw materials are transported into the fish feed manufacturing plant by vehicles, and are automatically unloaded at the raw material discharge port. An exhaust gas collection and treatment system is installed above the discharge port. Reuse of raw materials.

The raw materials enter the powder cleaning screen through scraper conveyor and bucket elevator to remove large impurities, then enter the permanent magnet cylinder to remove iron impurities, and then directly enter the batching bin.

02 Crushing stage:

The materials to be crushed (corn, soybean meal) are fed from the top feeding port through the feeder matched with the hammer mill feed grinder machine, and then enter the crushing chamber from the left or right through the feeding guide plate. Under the action of the blow and the friction of the sieve plate, the material is gradually crushed and discharged from the outlet of the base through the sieve hole under the action of centrifugal force and airflow.

fish feed machine fish feed mill

03 Batching and mixing system:

Batching: After PLC automatic measurement, various materials are transported into the batching scale through the auger in proportion to ensure that the material weight tolerance is within the range allowed by the company.

Mixing: After the material is automatically batched, it enters the mixing system, and the various materials are fully mixed, and the mixing uniformity exceeds 93%.

This section is the key fish feed production system section to ensure the quality of feed. This section adopts a double-shaft paddle high-efficiency feed mixer machine, and multiple liquid addition devices can be set up according to the needs of the formula.

During the mixing process, the flow rate of liquid addition and the optimal time of addition are controlled by a microcomputer to ensure that the liquid raw materials and the solid phase raw materials are fully mixed evenly. In order to reduce the cross-contamination of feed raw materials and improve the working environment, a pulse bag filter is installed in the feeding device of the opponent, so that the dust of the added raw material can be returned to the original process line. The mixed superfine powder feed enters the subsequent extruding process.

04 Pellet extrusion stage:

Conditioning and tempering: Conditioning and tempering is a process of hydrothermal treatment and softening of powder before feed extrusion.

Extrusion: Extruded pellet feed has more advantages. Through the comprehensive action of steam heat energy, mechanical friction energy and pressure, it can achieve many functions such as sterilization and improving feed digestibility. This fish feed manufacturing plant project adopts the re-granulation process, which means that the hot feed that has been pelleted is immediately re-granulated by the second lamination to the hot and soft pellets, which improves the nutritional value of the feed and improves the pelleting effect. (Related product: twin screw extruder for sale

Cooling: A countercurrent pellet cooler machine is used, so that the product can be cooled and dried to achieve a safe use level.
