Feed Pellet Machine

Introduction of feed pellet machine

Feed pellet machine, as known as a pellet mill, pellet making machine, or pellet press is a pellet mill equipment that can process various raw materials into pellets of different sizes and shapes. It is widely used in livestock and poultry breeding, residential heating, biofuel, and other industries.

How to use the pellet mill machine

Pelletizers are used to make pellets from various materials, such as oil cake, rice bran, corn crumbs, wood chips, waste paper, etc. The process of making pellets using a pelletizer typically involves preparing the material, feeding it into the machine, and compressing it into the desired pellet shape.

Preparing Materials: Depending on the type of materials used, the preparation process may vary. Oil cakes, corn chips, etc. are generally used for animal feed, and some other raw materials need to be added, for wood chips, the size of the material needs to be 3-5mm, and the moisture content is 10-15%. Wood chips,  need to be cut into pieces 2.5 cm or smaller. For waste paper, the paper needs to be shredded and then mixed with water to make pulp.

Feeding the material into the machine: Once the material is ready, it needs to be fed into the pellet mill hopper.

Compressed material: Inside the granulator, the material will be compressed by the rollers and dies. The rollers press the material against the mold, which shapes it into pellets. The mold controls the shape of the pellet, and the pellet length can be adjusted manually.

Collection of pellets: Once the pellets are formed, they slide out of the machine. Particles can be collected in containers or bags.

Animal feed production: Pellet mills can be used to mix different dry raw materials and produce animal feed pellets. They can mix flour, grass, sawdust, and other powdered ingredients, as well as add molasses, to make nutritious animal feed pellets.

Fuel Production: Pelletizers can produce biomass pellets from materials such as wood, rice husks, sawdust, bamboo, waste veneer, corn stalks, and other solid waste. The produced pellets have a high calorific value and are renewable, making them good substitutes for wood, raw coal, fossil fuels, and liquefied gas.

Residential heating: Wood pellets produced by pellet mills can be used as fuel in residential heating systems.

Industrial Heating: Granulators can produce pellets for industrial heating purposes. These particles can be used in hot water supply systems and industrial fuel systems.

HOME USE: Small pellet mills can be used at home to process grains such as corn, soybeans, rice, and wheat into pellets without crushing them first. These pellets can be used as animal feed or fuel.

Pellet Mill Advantages

    • Low energy consumption: because they use low energy consumption electric motors or diesel engines. This saves energy costs and improves profits.

    • Small size and lightweight: The size and shape of the granules produced by the granulator are controllable, making the final product compact and light in weight. It makes carrying, handling, using, and storing pellets effortless. This feature helps reduce all expenses related to storage and transportation, thereby reducing production costs.

    • Durable and long-lasting: The granulator is built with heavy-duty construction to ensure durability and long-lasting performance. They can work 24 hours a day and require less maintenance.

    • Increase income: pellet mill machines can help farmers reduce economic burden and increase income.

    • Easy to operate and maintain: The granulator is easy to operate and maintain. The electric control cabinet can control the production, and the operation and maintenance are convenient. Furthermore, they are priced competitively compared to pellet mills designed for industrial use.

In conclusion, pellet mills have various advantages that make them suitable for different industries. They are energy efficient, produce compact and lightweight pellets, increase efficiency, and are durable. They are also easy to operate and maintain and offer a wide range of adaptability. These properties make them an excellent choice for manufacturers and farmers.
