dry fish feed extruder machine philippines
Extrusion processing technology has become of major importance in the production of modern feeds used in intensive aquaculture. In recent years there has been a constant growth in the application of extruded diets for aquatic feeding. Aquatic feed by extrusion have superior water stability, better floating property and a higher energy than pelleted diets, which contributes to the increase in fish growth and improvement in feed conversion. Therefore compared with the conventional pelleting process, extrusion technology is the most efficient way to improve the performance of aquatic feed.
Wet type fish feed extruder machine is widely used for producing grains into high-grade aquatic feed pellets for many kinds of pet like fish, catfish, shrimps, crab, cat, dog and etc. Grain materials employed in fish feed extruder are such as wheat, soybean, cake and other leftovers and etc., moreover puffing pellets produced by the pellet extruder machine can float on the water surface without dissolution for over 12 hours. Wet type feed extruder machine is mainly employed in medium or large size feed processing factory and aquaculture farm. For large scale production of quality pellets, it is profitable to opt wet type feed extrusion machine
Working Process of Floating Fish Feed Extruder
When the raw material is sent into feeding device, they will be pressed by the screw shaft with high pressure and temperature which can make the raw material fully cooked and sterilized. Then the pressed material will be formed into pellets by shaping mold. After that a cutting device will cut the formed pellets into different length as required.
From the above, it is obvious that extruders are very versatile and can make feeds with many different characteristics, which can greatly benefit aquatic feed production! There are various types of extruders available in the market such as: dry type extruder, wet extruder, single screw extruder, twin screw extruder and etc.. Different types of extruders own its features, which contribute to extruded pellets with different performance. Therefore before choosing an extruder for your aqua-feed production, you should clearly know what type of you need for your business.
