Different types of floating fish feed extruder machine

The equipment can be divided into two categories, including single screw floating fish feed extruder machine and twin screw floating fish feed extruder machine. When buying a floating fish feed extruder machine, we will encounter a problem – is it to buy a twin screw floating fish feed extruder machine or a single screw fish feed extruder? What is the difference between the two?

The principle of the twin screw floating fish feed extruder machine and single screw fish feed extruder is the same as that of the product obtained by extruding rapid expansion and cooling from the mold after high heat extrusion. The difference in function mainly depends on the size of the extrusion force, and the corresponding equipment is selected for the type of extruded feed.

twin screw floating fish feed extruder machines

A twin screw floating fish feed extruder machine is generally used in the production of aquatic and pet feed pellets with high added value, such as eel, turtle, and juvenile feed.

Twin screw floating fish feed extruder machine

The raw materials are conditioned at high temperatures and then sent to the expansion mechanism. The double-screw floating fish feed extruder machine is driven by a pair of parallel screws to push the material forward. The material from the hopper into the barrel, as the screw rotates, along the direction of the groove forward transport, is gradually compacted. The material is strongly stirred, mixed, and crushed between the two screws and between the screw and the cylinder.

The material temperature rises and begins to melt until they all melt. As the chute space is further smaller, the material is further heated and boosted, and the raw starch is fully gelatinized. When the materials are instantly extruded from a certain shape of the die hole, the pressure is released quickly, the water evaporates sharply, the material expands accordingly, and the water is quickly lost from the material. The product is quickly cooled to about 80℃ so that it is solidified and maintains its expanded shape.

The floating fish feed extruder machine is the equipment for producing aquatic feed pellets. With the development over time, feed extrusion technology is becoming more and more mature. RICHI Machinery has a professional technician team and can provide clients with fish feed extruders of 1-12T/H capacities.

FAQ about the floating fish feed extruder machine

question

How to maintain the twin screw fish feed extruder?

In order to prolong the service life of the twin-screw floating fish feed extruder machine, it is necessary not only to operate strictly according to the operating procedures but also to clean and maintain it regularly. What are the specific cleaning and maintenance methods?

01 Resin cleaning method

This method is to clean the machine with resin, such as polyester resin or epoxy resin. This is generally used when the fish feed pellet making machine has been used for a period of time. When some materials remain on the screw or the screw cylinder and are gelatinized, the extrusion speed of materials becomes slow, and the color difference of the color change varieties is large, this method can be used.

02 Non resin cleaning method

This method uses materials such as rice, corn, sawdust, and toilet paper that have certain friction and are easy to crush. When the floating fish feed extruder machine is heated to the normal extrusion temperature, the friction between these materials and the screw and the screw barrel is used to remove the residues on the surface of the screw and the screw barrel.

Experience shows that the hardness of rice husk is high and the friction force is great, compared with the effect of machine cleaning. After cleaning with this method, it is necessary to open the screw barrel to check the cleaning condition.

How to maintain the twin-screw floating fish feed extruder machine after knowing how to clean it?

twin screws floating fish feed extruder machine
  1. After using the machine for a period of time, a comprehensive inspection shall be carried out to check the tightness of all screws.
  2. In case of power interruption in production, the main drive and heating will stop. When the power supply is restored, all sections of the barrel must be reheated to the specified temperature and kept warm for a period of time before starting the extruder.
  3. After the extruder has been used for 500 hours, there will be iron chips or other impurities in the reduction gearbox. Therefore, the gears should be cleaned and the lubricating oil of the reduction gearbox should be replaced.
  4. The screw can only be started at low speed, and the idling time shall not exceed 3 minutes.
  5. No sundries are allowed in the materials, and hard objects such as metal, sand, and gravel are strictly prohibited from entering the hopper and extruder.
question

Do you know if a fish feed extruder machine can make floating fish food pellets?

Extrusion processing is a processing technology in that raw materials are processed by high temperature, high pressure, and instant ripening, integrating transportation, crushing, extrusion, mixing, shearing, high-temperature disinfection, and molding. And it can process viscous, high-fat, high moisture raw materials. This is incomparable to the general production process, so it is increasingly used in the production of high-grade feed and food such as aquatic feed, pet feed, special breeding, etc.

So what are the advantages of the expanded aquatic feed pellets produced by the fish feed pellet making machine?

aquatic feed pellets

01

Good water resistance

The structure formed in the expansion process makes the expanded aquatic feed pellets stable in water. Whether it is the sinking feed or the floating feed, it can not collapse after soaking in water for 12 hours, which can maintain the quality of aquaculture water. It not only greatly reduces the waste of feed, but also provides a good environment for the healthy growth of aquatic animals.

02

Higher digestibility

The changes in starch, protein, and other substances caused by high temperature, high pressure, and strong shearing during the processing of expanded feed have improved the digestibility of such substances. The starch gelatinization degree of expanded aquatic feed is generally above 85%, while that of ordinary hard-grain aquatic feed is only about 40%. The digestibility of starch alone is far higher than that of ordinary hard-grain aquatic feed. Strong extrusion can degrade some compact cellulose and keratin, release indigestible nutrients, and greatly improve digestibility.

03

Excellent palatability

The proper temperature and pressure during the expansion process make the finished feed granules porous and even in texture, and produce some flavor substances, which stimulate the appetite of aquatic animals and increase their intake.

04

Widen the scope of raw material utilization

The leftovers from the food industry, brewing industry, agriculture, and other industries are not easy to be processed into other forms of aquatic products due to the excessive water, oil, or cellulose content. The twin-screw floating fish feed extruder machine can make full use of them and enrich the feed resources.

When building or rebuilding the fish feed production line, the selection of a twin screw floating fish feed extruder machine should be considered first, and the equipment should be selected according to the production capacity and investment. During the transformation of the fish feed production line, it is also necessary to consider whether the production capacity and production effect of the original feed grinder machine, cooling machine, and dryer can meet the requirements of the selected fish feed pellet making machine and whether the existing equipment can be used to reduce investment.
