5. How to make animal livestock feed process with details?(Brief description of animal feed production process flow)

This 20t/h animal feed making project is a feed and expanded corn production project. The products are complete compound animal feed and expanded corn. The raw material of expanded corn is corn; the raw material of compound feed is corn, soybean meal, corn germ meal, stone powder, calcium hydrogen phosphate, methionine, salt, soybean oil, DDJS etc;The production process of this 20t/h animal feed mill factory is divided into three: extruded corn production line, feed additive production line and complete feed pellet production line for livestock.

(1) Production process of expanded corn

①Receipt of raw materials

Bulk corn and other raw materials are mainly received by automobile, and the raw materials are unloaded to the unloading pit after being weighed by a dump truck with a loadometer.

②Screening

Impurities in feed ingredients such as corn not only affect the quality of feed products, but also directly affect feed processing equipment and personal safety. In severe cases, the entire equipment can be damaged and affect the smooth progress of feed production, so it should be removed in time. The cleaning equipment is mainly screening. According to the difference in particle size, width, thickness, etc. of the material particles, one part of them will pass through the sieve surface to become the under-sieve, and the other part will remain on the sieve surface as the over-sieve, thereby making feed and impurities separation, to achieve the purpose of removing impurities, or to separate feeds of different sizes and shapes for classification processing. The screening equipment removes large and long sundries such as straw, straw, hemp rope, paper pieces, soil blocks, corn leaves, corn cobs and other sundries in the raw materials. The screening process is completely airtight, and the screening materials are lifted into the silo.

③Warehousing

The screened raw materials are lifted by a hoist into the silo, and a dust filter device is installed on the top of the silo, and the dust generated by the falling of the material during the lifting process is filtered by the filter device.

④Smash

The corn kernels in the warehouse to be crushed enter the crusher through the impeller feeder. This process is equipped with two crushers. The grain size of the corn after crushing in this process is about 01-3 mm. Work efficiency: part of the crushed corn enters the extruder to produce expanded corn, and part of the corn and soybean meal and other materials enter the large crusher to be further crushed to produce compound animal feed.

⑤Puffing

The method of corn puffing in this project is wet puffing. Corn puffing is a starch gelatinization process under the combined effects of moisture, heat, mechanical shear, friction, kneading and pressure difference. The corn puffing heat source of this project is the steam produced by the natural gas steam boiler. When the corn flour is mixed with the steam, the starch particles begin to absorb water and expand. When passing through the puffing cavity, the rapidly rising temperature and the kneading of the spiral blades accelerate the absorption of water by the mesh bag starch particles. 

The crystal structure begins to disintegrate, the hydrogen bond breaks, and the expanded starch grains begin to rupture and become a viscous melt. Due to the instantaneous pressure drop at the exit of the extruder, the instantaneous loss of steam (moisture) makes a large amount of expanded starch The granules disintegrate and the starch gelatinizes. High temperature, high pressure and mechanical shearing make the starch gelatinization more thorough than the starch produced by other processing methods. Generally, the gelatinization degree can reach 80%-100%. Compared with the conventional cooking process, the plant cell wall can be broken. The starch chain is shorter, which improves digestibility more effectively. There are many factors affecting corn puffing, mainly moisture, puffing temperature, puffing pressure difference and mechanical shearing force in the cavity.

⑥ Cooling of extruded material

In the puffing process, the high temperature and high humidity steam is introduced and the material is extruded to generate a lot of heat, which makes the temperature and humidity of the puffed particles higher. Under such conditions, adhesion and mildew will occur during temporary storage. The moisture must be reduced to below 14%, and the temperature must be lowered to below 8°C higher than the air temperature. Air cooling is used for project cooling. The extruded material is cooled by the air sent by the fan. The moisture and dust generated during the cooling process are passed through cyclone. Dust collector is discharged outside after treatment.

⑦Smash

The extruded material in the warehouse to be crushed enters the crusher through the impeller feeder, and the crushed pellets are conveyed by the screw conveyor and lifted to the temporary storage warehouse by the bucket elevator. This process is equipped with 2 pulverizers, and the particle size after pulverization is about 2-3mm. The purpose of pulverization is to increase the specific surface area of ​​the feed, increase the utilization rate of the animal to the feed, increase the contact area of ​​digestive enzymes to the raw material, and reduce the animal's intake The energy consumption of mastication in the process is beneficial to increase the feed reward; the material is crushed with a pulverizer and then sieved, and the sieved material is returned to the original pulverizer to be crushed again.

(2) Additive premix production process

①Feeding

Stone powder, calcium hydrogen phosphate, methionine, salt and other small materials are transported to the next step through the feeding port through the scraper.

② Ingredients and mixing

Ingredients refer to the various ingredients of the animal livestock feed formula, which are mixed according to the specified weight ratio, and processed so that every small part of the whole, even a feed, has the same ingredient ratio as the formula requires. This project uses a high-efficiency mixer with a short mixing cycle, and the coefficient of variation of mixing uniformity is less than or equal to 5%. The materials enter the mixer after being accurately configured by weighing according to the scientific formula, and after a reasonable and scientific mixing time, they enter the baler after being evenly mixed

③Packing

In order to facilitate the subsequent production of ingredients, the evenly mixed small materials are measured and packaged by the baler.

(3) Compound feed production process

①Feeding

•Soybean meal, crushed corn, corn germ meal, DDJS and other raw materials are input through the feeding port, and then conveyed by a screw conveyor, and the bucket elevator is lifted into the next step.

• After the small materials are put in through the powder feeding port, they are conveyed by a screw conveyor and lifted by a bucket elevator to the next step.

• Soybean oil, etc. are directly transported from the storage tank to the batching process;

②Crush

The pellets in the silo to be crushed enter the animal feed pulverizer through the impeller feeder, and the crushed pellets are conveyed by the screw conveyor and lifted to the batching silo by the bucket elevator.
The purpose of pulverization is to increase the specific surface area of ​​the feed, increase the utilization rate of the animal’s feed, and increase the contact area of ​​the digestive enzymes with the raw materials; reduce the energy consumption of the animal's chewing during the feeding process, which is conducive to increasing the feed return; improving the quality of the subsequent processes, Improve work efficiency.

③ Ingredients and mixing

Ingredients refer to the various ingredients of the feed formula, which are mixed according to the specified weight ratio, and processed so that every small part of the whole, even a feed, has the same ingredient ratio as the formula requires. When batching, the materials and small materials are mixed in a certain proportion, and the batching accuracy is less than 0.3%. Using a high-efficiency mixer, the mixing cycle is short, and the mixing uniformity variation coefficient is less than or equal to 5%. According to the scientific formula, the materials enter the mixer through a microcomputer and weighing accurately. After a reasonable and scientific mixing time, the microcomputer controls the discharge into the silo to be granulated through the buffer hopper, scraper, elevator, and distributor.

④Pelleting

Before entering the animal feed pelletizer machine, it needs to be tempered. The tempering must be steamed into the material to directly contact and mix and moisten the material. After the tempering is uniform, it will fall to the granulator for granulation by extrusion. The pellet feed formed by compacting and extruding a single raw material or compound mixture through mechanical action is called pelleting. 

The purpose of pelleting is to make finely divided, dust-prone, poorly palatable and difficult-to-ship feed into pellets using the heat, moisture and pressure during the pelleting process. Compared with powdered feed, pelleted feed has the following advantages: improve feed digestibility; reduce animal picky eaters; make storage and transportation more economical; pelletizing generally increases the bulk density of powdered feed by 40% to 100%; avoids feed ingredients Automatic grading, reducing environmental pollution; killing Salmonella in animal feed. The steam is provided by a natural gas-fired boiler.

⑤Cooling

In the animal feed pelleting process, the high temperature and high humidity steam is introduced and the material is extruded to generate a lot of heat, so that when the pellet feed comes out of the pelletizer, the water content reaches 16%-18%, and the temperature is as high as 75℃ -85. ℃, under this condition, the pellet feed is easy to deform and break, and it will also cause adhesion and mildew during storage. The moisture must be reduced to below 14%, and the temperature must be lowered to 8℃ higher than the air temperature. The project is cooled by wind Cold, the dust generated during the cooling process is discharged outside after being processed by the Shakron dust collector.

⑥Sieving

After the pellet feed is processed by the crushing process, a part of powder clots and other unqualified materials will be produced. Therefore, the crushed pellet feed needs to be sieved into products with neat particles and uniform sizes. The finished granular material is conveyed to the grading screen by the elevator, and the grading screen is a two-layer screen. Large debris, primary products and other large particles on the sieve are collected through the trash discharge port and recycled to the cooling process. The intermediate sieve is the qualified product through the flow tube to the finished product warehouse, and the powder and other small particles under the sieve Reflux directly to the granulation process. This process is all airtight. After being concentrated and mixed, the finished powdered material enters the powder sieve for screening, the over-screen material returns to the crushing process, and the under-screen material enters the finished product warehouse as qualified products. This process is all airtight.

⑦Packaging

The finished product is transported to the finished product temporary storage warehouse, and then is packaged and metered and packaged. The finished product warehouse is airtight. Because the powder and fine materials have been screened during the screening process, the amount of dust generated during the packaging process of the pellets is small.
