  • a. The carried rated production capacity means the production in the rated situation.
  • b. When you choosing the production capacity, it should be little larger than the required production capacity.

3. According to crushed raw materials.

For crushing grain feed, D-type feed pellet maker is suggested; for crushing bran cereals, R-type feed pellet machine is suggested; for the pre-processing as the pre-mixed feed, special feed pellet machine without sieve is suggested.

Tip 2

1. According to raw material.

For processing concentrated feed, both of flat die and ring die pellet maker are suitable; for processing grass feed or feed-crop mixed feed, flat die pellet maker is suggested, because flat die type can meet the large needing compression ratio.

2. According to the animal type.

If processing feed for cattle, sheep, chicken and pig. Thicker pressing die is suggested to choose for processing chicken and pig feed due to concentrated material taking up a large part in it; while thinner pressing die is more suitable for processing cattle and sheep feed. Because large part of concentrated material causes small pressing resistance, consuming small power. If the grass material take up over 50% in the cattle and sheep feed, when pressing, resistance is larger which consumes larger power.

3. According to feed plan and consumption.

Low-cost flat die pellet maker is more suitable for rural farming households, small and medium feed processing factory; while ring die pellet maker with high production capacity and 24-hour non-stop work is preferred for large feed pellet production manufacturer.
