What Are the Factors Affecting the Quality Feed Pellets Production?

Animal feed pellet quality can be affected by various factors, mainly from the formulation of animal feed pellets as well as the feed pellet production process and technology. The following are some of the main factors that affect the quality of feed pellet products.

  • Feed Ingredients Components and Formulas

Components and formulas vary in their ability to pellet and generate long-lasting pellets. Even the nutritional composition of the same feed ingredient varies depending on its origin. For example, corn is one of the main raw materials for feed, different regions of corn, sugar content, amino acids and protein will vary.

  • Different Production Processing Technology

Raw material cleaning, powdering, batching, mixing, pelleting is the five main processes of feed pellet processing, each step has a key point affecting the quality of animal feed pellets, if the raw material cleaning and storage conditions, the fineness of the crushing requirements, the precision of the batching system, the mixing uniformity of the mixer and pelleting process debugging or puffing effect and other management measures are not strictly enforced, will cause differences in the nutritional status of feed products.

Completely Animal Feed Pellet Production Line Process and Technology

Animal feed pelletizing systems are made up of a variety of machinery, such as crushers, mixers, pelletizers, coolers, packers, and so on, all of which are designed to accomplish the granulating operation as efficiently as possible. We will provide more detailed details on each machine's function eventually.

  • Crushing Process

Horizontal hammer mills, roller mills, and vertical hammer mills are all forms of crushing machinery. The vertical hammer mill is the primary development model, according to comprehensive metrics. Using combinations in the process to meet demand has become a trend in feed manufacturing.

The following are the primary elements influencing the performance of the existing feed mill crusher:

  • the physical properties of raw materials

  • feeding system rotor turning and feeding direction

  • the choice of crusher screen aperture

  • hammer blade selection


  • Mixing Process

The primary goals of mixing and processing equipment research are to enhance mixing uniformity, reduce mixing time, and increase output per unit of time. Horizontal screw belt mixers, horizontal paddle mixers, and horizontal twin shaft paddle mixers are some of the most regularly used mixing equipment.

  • Pelleting  Process

Feed Pellet mills are not designed to crush or digest blends.

It is fed into the pellet mill bin, located above the pellet mill. The mash is fed into the pellet maker by gravity. Gravity feeds the hot, squeezed mash into the cooler. The flowing air cools and dries it for 3–6 minutes. The dust collected by the dust collector is returned to the pellet mill to be squeezed and compressed again.

  • Dosing and Packaging Process

There are two methods for producing dosage and packing.

  1. Hands-on operation: bagging, placing, and weighing and slitting

  2. Weighing on an automatic dosing scale - hand bagging and packing - conveying and sewing
