Requirements for raw materials when pellets are compressed by livestock feed pellet mills
- Jun 05, 2018 -

As we all know, the livestock feed pellet machine is a machine that suppresses the pellet feed of livestock. In order to improve the quality of the feed pellets, the raw materials used also have corresponding requirements. What are the basic conditions that raw materials should meet when using granules to feed pellets?


As the animal feed pellet mill presses the raw material, this requires that the raw material we use has a certain adhesive force. Otherwise, the pellets pressed out will either not be formed, or will be loose and of poor quality. For example, pods, straw, and cotton sticks are easier to mold.


Second, livestock feed pelletizers require moisture for raw materials. For granulation, your raw water needs to be kept at about 13%. When the moisture of the raw material is large, the resulting particles are relatively soft. When the moisture content is low, the powder is easily discharged. Therefore, the moisture content of the material will also affect the output value of the pelletizer.


Normally, the animal feed pellet mills are dry to dry, and the pellets are kept at such a value that the pellets are not moldy and are not degrading. It is the key to long-term storage. Therefore, most of the raw materials are not directly granulated. They need to be dried before being crushed and granulated.


In fact, for livestock feed pelletizers, not only feed ingredients can be granulated, but some biomass raw materials can also be formed. In addition to common feed ingredients, sawdust, sawdust, forest blocks, soybean stalks, peanut husks, cotton stalks, and other materials that meet the above two conditions can also be granulated.


There are also some less common raw materials, after the client test machine can also be granulated molding, such as graphite, tobacco rod, bagasse, bean curd residue, aquatic grass and so on. Therefore, if you are not sure about your own raw materials, you can consult the technical personnel of the animal feed pellet mill manufacturer to get a professional reply.


Only when the raw materials meet the requirements, the livestock feed pellet machine can suppress high-quality feed pellets to meet the production needs of the livestock, and at the same time can promote the good use of the pellet pellet feeders themselves.
