fish feed formulation and production

1.Fish feed manufacturing business

With the rapid development of aquaculture industry, the variety of aquaculture is increasing and the demands for floating pellet feed and sinking pellet feed is also increasing greatly. Accordingly, setting up an fish feed processing line has been regarded as a good way of getting rich at this moment.

Fish, shrimp and other aquatic animals have small intestines and stomach, and poor digestion and absorption ability, so the processing technology of aquatic feed is much higher than that of livestock and poultry feed. To produce high quality fish feed, we must rely on scientific and reasonable processing technology and combine it with advanced, reliable and stable fish feed pellet machinery. Therefore, the selection of fish processing equipment is particularly critical.

2.Buy fish feed processing equipment for your small 500-1000kg/h floating and sinking fish feed factory line

Fish deed extruding technology is mainly used in the production of special aquatic feed, pet feed and other animal feed. In addition to the advantages of the general animal pellet feed, the extruded feed can also improve the digestion and absorption rate of feeding animals, and effectively prevent animals from digestive tract diseases. Expanded feed can be applied to materials that contains starch and high fat content due to the starch gelatinization. In addition, the ripening of high temperature and high pressure also increase disinfection and sterilization.

It is because of so many advantages of feed extrusion that more and more 500-1000kg capacity small commercial fish feed making plants begin to adopt feed extruding equipment to produce sinking and floating fish feeds.

floating fish feed production process

3.Working principle of fish food extruder for fish feed manufacturing plant with 500-1000kg per hour capacity

At present, most of the 500-1000kg/h complete small size fish feed mills adopt fish feed extruder as the core equipment to produce floating and sinking feeds. The working principle of feed extruder is the powder materials that contains a certain amount of starch (more than 20%) are conditioned and treated by conditioner, and then the water content of the material can reach 25% ~ 27%, the temperature rises to 80℃ ~ 100℃.

The fish feed extruder machine is composed of feeding system, driving system, extrusion system, discharging mold and electrical control system.

The material with good tempering quality enters into the screw extrusion area. As the volume of the extrusion area becomes smaller along the axis, the pressure on the material increases gradually, and the compression ratio can reach 4 ~ 10. The material is extruded and pushed by screw, accompanied by strong shearing and friction action, the pressure and temperature rise sharply. Under the action of high temperature and high pressure, the starch in the material can be basically completely gelatinized, and the protein can be partially deformed.

When the material is extruded out from the die under great pressure, due to the sudden leave and sudden enters into the atmosphere, temperature and pressure are decreased greatly, under the joint action of pressure and temperature difference, the volume of feed rapidly is expanded and the moisture is evaporated quickly, dehydration is set. Then, through the customized discharge model to form various shapes and structure, and the extruded feed is made successfully.

4.How to Choose Your Floating and Sinking Fish Feed Pellet Machine for your 500-1000kg/h aquaculture fish feed production

Quality is the life of an feed production enterprise. In order to produce different kinds of floating and sinking fish feed with high quality, choosing the suitable fish feed equipment to set up a sinking floating fish feed processing line should based on your actual needs. If you have no ideas about how to do it, please just contact us to get professional technical supports!

(3)Small 500-1000kg/h fish feed mill construction budget 

Small scale hot selling easy to use 500-1000kg/h fish feed production mill construction investment is usually between 8000USD-40000USD.

5.Characteristics of Fish Sinking and Floating Feed

To select the production equipment of aquatic feed, we must first understand the characteristics of fish feed and aquatic feed:

(1)Smaller Size of Pellets

Due to the short digestive tract and related physiological characteristics of aquatic animals, in order to speed up digestion and absorption, the size of aquatic feeds should be smaller than that of livestock and poultry feeds. For example, the size of eel and prawn feeds should reach 80 to 120 meshes.

(2)High Protein and Low Carbohydrate

The protein content of livestock and poultry feed is generally less than 20%, but the protein content of aquatic animal feed is mostly 30% ~ 40%, the protein content of eel feed is as high as 65% ~ 70%.

(3)Tight and Close Structure of Pellet Feed

The feed for fish and other aquatic animals should have high adhesion and water resistance.

(4)Prevent Cross Contamination in the Fish Feed Production

Some raw materials need to be treated aseptic, the equipment selected is easy to clean and less residue, especially in the production of shrimp and eel feed, other kinds of feed shall not be produced at the same time to prevent cross contamination.

6.The difference between floating and sinking production for fish feed

Generally speaking, because of the characteristics of floating fish, the processing of floating fish feed pellets must use an extruder. The sinking fish feed can not only use an extruder, but also a ring die pelletizer. Especially for many customers who have just entered the fish feed processing industry, if you want to process sinking fish feed, you can choose a two-layer or three-layer conditioner ring die fish feed pelletizer, which not only saves costs, but also feeds The quality is not bad either.
