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.

Buy Equipment for the Production of Floating and Sinking Fish Feed
Feed pellet 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 fish feed pellet has its own outstandings:
- The extruded feed pellets 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 contain starch and high fat content due to the starch gelatinization.
- What's more, the ripening of high temperature and high pressure also increases disinfection and sterilization. (Latest News: Floating Fish Feed Pellet Machine Exported to America >>)
Floating and Sinking Feed Mill Plant
It is because of so many advantages of feed extrusion that more and more commercial fish feed plants begin to adopt feed extruding equipment to produce sinking and floating fish feeds. Whether you plan to make fish feed for your fish pond or fishery, process the extruded fish feed pellets in your fish feed production factory, or start a fish feed making plant as business, we are always here for you!
Fish Feed Pellet Extruder Machine for Sale
At present, most of the fish feed mills adopt 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℃.
Floating Sinking Fish Feed Pellet Machinery
The fish feed pellet extruder machine is composed of a 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.
Sinking Fish Feed Pellet in Extrusion
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.

Characteristics of Fish Sinking and Floating Feed
To select the suitable production equipment of aquatic feed, you also need to understand the characteristics of fish feed and aquatic feed, which will make your fish feed production easier.
Make Fish Sinking and Floating Feed Pellet
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.
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%.
The feed for fish and other aquatic animals should have high adhesion and water resistance.
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.
- For the extruded fish feed pellets, how much moisture, how much moisture after drying?
- The final extruded fish feed pellets have a moisture of about 18%, after drying, the moisture reaches 8%-10%.
- What is the difference between horizontal mixing and vertical mixing?
- Horizontal has a smaller model, partial wood chips of raw materials recommended horizontal. Vertical minimum model 500, cereal feed materials more vertical.
- Customers who add cooking oil in the pellet feed extruder machine set, from where to add?
- Generally from the spray barrel to add pet feed, you can add the right amount in the mixing section, but fish and shrimp feed is recommended to add only from the spray.
