RICHI new micro-pellet shrimp feed pelletizing line for high-end aquatic feed production
The optimized aquatic shrimp feed pellet processing line has helped shrimp feed producers increase their micro-pellet feed supply during COVID-19 crisis.
Producing the best feed requires specialized processing technology. As a reliable feed processing technology partner, Richi Machinery has always kept this concept in mind and provided feed producers processing solutions according to the growth demand of the farming species, and as per the operational targets of animal feed mill plant owners who want to well-adapt to the merging challenges such as adopting new ingredient, improving operational efficiency, cutting cost, ensuring environmental sustainability, etc.
In close collaboration with customers, RICHI recently has accelerated the development progress of its future-proof solutions, and successfully launched a new shrimp feed pelleting line to help producers increase their micro-pellet feed supply during COVID-19 crisis.
The reconfigured aquatic shrimp feed pellet making line includes a conditioning system, a SZLH768 shrimp feed pellet processing machine, a stabilizer, and a SKLN22×22A pellet cooler machine. SZLH768 shrimp feed maker machine is specially designed to produce the best production efficiency and the best pellet quality according to the material characteristics of shrimp feed formula and the feeding behaviors of shrimp in different growing phases. The stabilizer, on the other hand, creates a fast-preheating, uniform and high-temperature conditioning space to obtain improved starch gelatinization and water durability for feed pellets. While the SKLN22×22A pellet cooling machine is installed to achieve uniform, thoroughly cooling and reasonable water reduction, avoiding weight loss of product causing by over de-watering.
Technically and practically, this is one of the most famous micro-pellet shrimp feed pellet production lines in China. The optimized line has proven itself by increasing production capacity from 3-4 t/h to 5-6t/h when processing pellets as small as 1.0mm in some feed mills since May 2020.
Through automation and the transformation of RICHI's expertise and the best production practices of shrimp feed mill plants into digital solutions, all machines on the shrimp feed pelleting line are able to work at their best performance without redundant capabilities. Product moisture is well controlled throughout the whole processing line. While the impact of ring die on pellet quality is eliminated by reasonable linear velocity, proper die hole opening pattern and optimized opening rate.
All of these thoughtful design and considerations finally contribute to high-capacity yet high-performance, cost-effective micro-pellet shrimp feed pellet production. Feed pellets are produced to have all the right attributes in terms of density, water durability, pellet appearance, digestibility, etc.
Improved automation level of the whole high-end shrimp feed pellet manufacturing line also helps to reduce operation complexity and allows producers to continue their shrimp feed production with less operators in the time of COVID-19 crisis.
