How to Control The Feed Pellet Quality During Pelletization
The production property of animal is closely related to the feed pellet quality. Most breeders concern how to correctly use the feed pellet mill to produce the high quality feed pellets. The equipment inspection and maintenance and modulating technology are two main factors.
1. Inspect the wear pattern of ring die and compression roller. The wear of compression roller will affect the production capacity; the undue wear of ring die will decrease its effective thickness and influence the feed pellet quality.
2.Regularly check the crusher roller. The excessive wear of corrugated toothed ring decreases the crushing ability.
3. Examine the cutter of feed pellet mill. The cutter wear will increase the feed powder.
4. Inspect the steam separator to ensure the steam quality.
5. Inspect whether there is material backlog and screen surface damage in pellet cooler.
6. Examine the grading screen surface. The clogging and sticking of screen surface will affect the grading effect of feed pellets.
The structure and strength of feed pellets rely on the modulating technology. The steam and heat can soft the feed ingredients and improve the pelletizing performance. During pelleting period the starch can gelatinize. And the gelatinized starch can strength the bonding effect and keep the pellet shape. In a certain range the longer the modulating time the higher the starch gelatinization degree. The modulating time is appropriate between 10 and 30 seconds. Too much steam will soft the materials and block the die holes; too less steam makes the feed ingredients have poor starch gelatinization. Adding adequate steam can gelatinize starch, strength bonding effect and increase the feed pellet durability index. Usually the adding amount of modulating steam is calculated about 5% of the feed ingredients quantity.The modulating effect directly affects the feed pellet quality. During pelletizing process modulating technology together with equipment inspection and maintenance can make feed pellet mill produce the high quality feed pellets. Our company can supply the first-class feed pellet mill and give professional services about the product information, install advice, equipment maintenance etc.
