Process design of 16-20 t/h floating food factory for fish

As an important part of the feed industry, aquafeed has been paid more and more attention by manufacturers and aquaculture owners.

Due to the special feeding requirements of fish, shrimp and other aquatic products, the 16-20t/h fish food factory production technology and equipment are constantly updated and developed. Currently, floating fish feed pellet production are usually produced using two production processes:

floating fish feed plant fish meal processing equipment
  1. First batching, then crushing, then mixing, granulating, post-curing, cooling, grading, grading after leaving the warehouse, packaging and leaving the fish food factory;
  2. The ingredients are firstly crushed, then pulverized, mixed, puffed, dried, cooled, classified, and then classified out of the warehouse, and then packaged and shipped out.

Both of these two fish feed production processes can meet the fineness, the uniformity of mixed material particles, and the quality of granulated or extruded pellet required for the production of aquatic feed.

And can overcome the difficulty of single pulverization of high-protein materials and the over-fineness of raw materials after pulverization, and a series of problems in the production process of 16-20t/h fish food mill factory.

Production Process of 20 t/h fish food factory

This 20t/h fish food project is a reconstruction and expansion project. The buildings of the factory area are all based on the original factory buildings, and there is no need to excavate and build new buildings. Therefore, the construction period is relatively simple, and only the factory building renovation and equipment installation required for the fish extruded food factory are required.

The 20t/h fish food production process of extruded aquatic feed adopts the production process of first grinding and then batching, intermittent mixing, (super) micro-grinding, second batching, puffing, drying, oil injection, cooling (air cooling), screening into the finished product warehouse and complete packaging.

01 Feeding and cleaning section:

Since the raw materials purchased by the 20t/h fish food factory contain a certain amount of impurities, the feeding port is equipped with a grid screen which can be used as the first impurity removal equipment to remove impurities such as sack lines. Each feeding port is separately equipped with a square pulse dust collector; the powder and meal are manually unpacked in the aquatic feed production workshop and put into the feeding port.

After cleaning and iron removal by scraper and elevator, the meal enters the waiting port. The crushing bin, the powder and auxiliary materials enter the batching bin.

02 The first crushing section:

Due to the large particle size of raw materials such as corn and soybean meal, they need to be crushed to meet production requirements, so that they can be turned into powdery materials.

03 The first batching mixing section:

The batching process used in this 20t/h fish food factory project is batching with multiple bins and scales, which is a kind of automatic batching. The crushed raw and auxiliary materials are sent to different batching bins by the distributor.

04 The second ultrafine pulverization section:

In order to increase the taste of the feed and make the feed more suitable for fish consumption. After the various raw materials are mixed, they will enter a closed ultrafine pulverizer for the second pulverization.

fish feed mill plant cost fish feed production line

05 The second batching and mixing section:

According to the requirements of the formula, various raw materials participating in the ingredients are metered into the mixer in turn, and various core materials are added in the mixing process. The mixing cycle is 6 min.

06 Puffing and tempering——20t/h fish food factory:

The raw materials after the second pulverization enter the single-cylinder conditioner, and the materials are expanded and tempered by high temperature and high pressure (about 120 °C, 2 atmospheres).

07 Drying and oil spraying:

Due to the introduction of high temperature and high humidity steam in the process of puffing and tempering, and a large amount of heat generated by the extrusion of materials, the extruded aquatic feed has a high moisture content when it comes out of the conditioning machine, such as direct storage. Therefore, the extruded feed is dried by steam heat exchange, and oil is sprayed into the feed at the same time to increase the edible taste of the feed.

fish feed machine fish feed mill

08 Ventilation and cooling process:

The temperature of the material coming out of the fish feed dryer machine is as high as 70°C -85°C. Under this condition, the pellet feed is easily deformed and broken. This process adopts the form of countercurrent ventilation and cooling to reduce the feed temperature to below 8°C higher than the room temperature.

09 Screening, packaging and storage process:

The cooled feed, after screening, enters the finished product warehouse with qualified particle size, and is packaged and stored in the warehouse through an automatic packaging machine.

  1. The 20t/h fish food factory project will generate dust during the feeding, crushing, mixing, screening and packaging processes. Therefore, the process considers installing fans and pulse dust collectors at various dust generating points to recover useful materials and reduce dust pollution in the workshop. .
  2. The steam required for puffing, tempering, drying and other processes in this 20t/h fish food production project comes from centralized gas supply, and there is no boiler gas supply in this project.

Layout of 20 t/h fish food factory

The gate of the 20t/h fish food line project is located near the village road on the west side. The 20t/h fish food plant area is mainly divided into living area and production area.

The main production workshop of the original project livestock and poultry feed production line is located in the center of the plant area, the finished product warehouse is located in the west side of the center of the plant area, and the raw material warehouse of the 20t/h fish food mill factory area is located in the east.

From a policy perspective, the world now pays great attention to ecological and environmental issues, especially carbon emissions in economic development.

Livestock and poultry farming also cause a lot of carbon emissions, and aquaculture has an incomparable advantage in this regard. Producing aquatic products that provide the same quality of protein emits far less carbon than raising livestock and poultry.

The two strategies to face the new changing situation are the great development of the industrial chain and the great upgrade of feed enterprises. Select high-end varieties in the industry, develop the industrial chain for intensive processing; and then improve international competitiveness through brand building.

Feed products need to be responsible for nutrition and environmental protection. Pellet feeds are upgraded to extruded feeds, and low-grade feeds are converted to high-grade feeds; functional health-care materials are used to ensure food safety, and attention is paid to animal protection and water adjustment.
