Process Design Of 20-24 t/h floating fish feed mill plant
We ensure an optimal RICHI solution through a deep dialogue about requirements and needs concerning the fish feed plant. Any future operational objectives are to be considered as well. RICHI delivers a total fish feed extrusion plant solution with analysis, design and installation to help you all the way from idea to delivery of the finished project.
Intake and cleaning:
The cleaning of raw materials ensures a problem-free total process and a high-quality semi-finished or end product. With help of a drum cleaner undersized and oversized impurities are removed from the raw materials. A magnet cleaner removes metal parts (ferromagnetic contamination ) from coarse raw materials.
Dosing and Weighing:
The most economical production method are dependent on the right dosage. Precise harmonization of the components demands a high level of dosing and weighing accuracy. The fine dosing process is optimized via the application of specialized small, micro, and precision ingredient dosing systems.
Grinding the raw materials to the required structure is an essential operation which affects both pellet quality as well as the digestibility. Size reduction increases the number of particles and the surface area per unit of volume which results in increased mixing homogeneity. In addition a finer grind has a positive effect on starch gelatinization.
In the fish feed mixer machines a wide range of raw materials, additives and liquids are mixed into a homogeneous aqua feed mixture. Pre-mixing before post-grinding is applied to achieve a high homogenous mixture for more uniform grinding.
Aqua feed pellets can be produced in several diameters and hardness. Extrusion is mostly used in the production of floating, slow sinking, neutral sinking and sinking feed. The twin sctew extruder also allows high levels of oil, fats and liquids addition while producing a small pellet size.
Drying & Cooling System:
After extrusion, drying is required due to the high moisture. The product is dried and cooled to the level required for coating or finished product. Extruded pellets are dried and cooled in a fish feed dryer machine with separate stages.
Sieving is applied for separating wanted elements from unwanted material like impurities or for ensuring the particle size of the feed compound. Sieving can be applied in several stages of the fish feed mill plant production process.
Liquids such as fat, vitamins, etc. are added after the extrusion process in order to prevent them from breaking down during the hydro-thermic process. It is also applied to add the necessary proportions for an optimal feed quality.
The finished product is collected and bagged by automatic bagging machine. Low-contamination, horizontal or vertical transportation of raw materials and semi-finished products may take place with conveyors and bucket elevators.
Storage & Automation:
For an optimal capacity batches are stored in bins and bunkers before and after the main machines. Bins for raw materials and finished feed product are executed with flat walls and if required with a coating to ensure proper product flow. To achieve maximum performance of your fish feed factory, feed mill automation helps you to control and optimize the complete floating fish feed production process.
Design principles of 20-24T/H fish feed mill plant
- The principle of smooth logistics. The incoming and outgoing storage of raw materials and finished products do not interfere with each other, the fish feed production lines are reasonably connected and matched, and the flow of people and logistics is reasonably separated.
- The principle of practical advance. As an emerging basic industry, the feed industry is rapidly updated. When designing, new fish feed equipment, new processes and new technologies should be adopted as much as possible, which can not only meet the needs of current production and operation, but also meet the needs of future expansion and upgrading of the company.
- The principle of saving land. At present, the merger and integration between feed enterprises is very fast, and the technology and new requirements of feed processing are constantly emerging. Before land acquisition and construction, as much vacant land should be reserved as possible to leave enough space for future development
- The principles of the specification are met. It must meet the requirements of the latest legal documents issued by the feed industry, especially the safety and environmental protection requirements of dust, noise, lighting, rodent prevention, fire protection, product quality, labor safety, hygiene, etc. construction requirements.
- The principle of fish feed production process as the core. The workshop, warehouse, office, living and other necessary auxiliary facilities and the whole fish feed manufacturing plant design should be carried out around the production process. Before designing, it is possible to investigate the running fish feed mill plant, and listen carefully to the user’s feedback, problems and opinions existing in the operation of the floating fish feed plant, improve the design scheme, and ensure the use of functions.

22T/H fish feed mill plant Project Report
The 22t/h fish feed mill plant project is located in a tourist resort, and the local government has limited the overall height of the project, with the highest point being about three stories high. This brought great difficulty to the design of our fish feed production project.
In the end, the fish feed company adopted the process of replacing the distributor with double multi-exit scrapers, which reduced the floor height and eliminated the material channeling problem caused by the general multi-exit scraper, ensuring that quality of the feed.
As a local aquafeed model project, this project adopts a number of industry-leading process systems:
- Since the distributor is not used, the double scraper process is adopted, and a scraper is added to bring the tailings of the distribution scraper back to the front elevator, which fundamentally solves the problem of feeding the multi-exit scraper;
- Adopt micro batching system to accurately batch ingredients and improve feed quality;
- Vacuum spraying is adopted to meet the needs of customers for high fat addition;

Layout of 22 t/h fish feed mill plant
There are 2 new production workshops, 1 gas boiler room, supporting raw material warehouse, finished product warehouse, and one office building and one dormitory building in this 22t/h fish feed mill plant project.
The 1# production workshop of the main project is located on the northwest side of the floating fish feed mill plant, and the supporting raw material warehouse is located on the north side of the production workshop, adjacent to the entrance and exit on the north side of the project, which is convenient for the transportation of raw and auxiliary materials; the supporting finished product warehouse is located on the south side of the production workshop.
The exhaust pipe of the production workshop is located in the downwind direction of the factory area, and the layout is reasonable; the living area of the factory area is located on the south side of the factory area, close to the entrance and exit on the south side of the project, which is convenient for people to enter and exit.
To sum up, the layout of the floating fish feed mill plant project is relatively reasonable and meets the needs of production and environmental protection.
Aquatic feeds have very high requirements in terms of both nutritional and physical characteristics of feed. These nutritional and physical feed requirements are driven by the life stage of a specific species under consideration. Physical characteristics include issues such as pellet size and shape; pellet density allowing us to produce floating, slow sinking and sinking feeds; water stability and pellet durability. The challenge is to achieve all of these while having a negligible effect on the environment.
RICHI keep these and other project specific issues in mind when designing a fish feed mill plant. The choice of equipment, technologies, processes, and equipment is, therefore, the key to success. We take time consulting with customers to ensure we fully understand customer requirements and more specifically requirements of the specific market the customer is serving.
