Last month our customer in Guinea purchased a diesel-powered floating fish feed pellet machine from us. This customer has his own fish pond. So he wanted to use the fish feed machine to make fish food. Our sales manager recommended the DGP60 fish feed pellet machine according to the size of the customer’s fish fry. Besides, we also have feed pellet-making machines for making animal and poultry feed. The processed feed is more delicious, and nutritious, and helps absorption.

Why is the floating fish feed used?
1. Feed utilization: Due to the physicochemical changes in the puffing process, the puffed feed generally produces less than 1% powder. So, it directly improves the effective utilization of the feed.
2. Digestion and absorption: Because of the high temperature and high-pressure processing conditions, the starch in the feed is well matured and more conducive to digestion and absorption. At the same time, destroy and soften the fiber structure and cell walls, thereby improving the palatability and digestibility of the feed.
3. Water quality: Puffed floating fish feed is insoluble in water for a long time. The floating time of high-quality fish feed can be up to 12 hours. So, it is easy to observe and control the bait and reduce or avoid the impact of powder and residual bait on the water surface.
4. Feeding habits observation: As the floating fish feed can float on the water surface for a long time. We can observe the feeding situation well after the feeding of fish. So, it is easy to adjust the amount of feeding according to the needs of the fish.
5. Wide range of feed sizes: With a wide range of pressure, temperature, and humidity. We can obtain the feed sizes from 0.8 mm to 5 mm.
Why use a floating fish food pellet machine?
1. The global animal feed processing industry is growing rapidly. And the demand for feed processing machinery is expanding.
2. More and more investors and farmers are buying fish feed-making machines. And they also set up their own fish feed farms to produce feed pellets.
3. With the increasing cost of feed and the demand for healthier fish, pufferfish feed is very beneficial.
4. Floating fish feed pellets are friendly to the environment. Also, using the machine can have a great future in the local fish farming market.
Features of floating fish feed extruder
- Simple structure, wide adaptability, small footprint, and low noise.
- The machine can pellet powdered feed, and grass powder without or little liquid addition, which is more conducive to storage.
- Higher economic efficiency can be obtained than mixed powder feed.
- The dry material processing can produce feed pellets with high hardness, smooth surface, and internal maturation, which can improve the digestion and absorption of nutrition.
- The process of pellet formation can make the pancreatic enzyme resistance factor in cereals and beans denatured to reduce the adverse effects on digestion. It can reduce various kinds of worms and digestive system diseases.
Using scope of fish food making machine
The fish food-making machine is widely used in large, medium, and small aquaculture, grain feed processing plants, livestock farms, poultry farms, farmers, and so on. And the produced feed can be used to feed fish, shrimp, crab, eel, catfish, Batrachia, etc.
Problems and solutions of fish feed pelletizer
1. Failure: The pellets are too hard and cannot be cut into good pellets.
Reason: Material fiber content is too high, size is too large, and moisture is too high.
Method: Replace the fine sieve with a crusher to reduce fiber and moisture.
2. Failure: The screw is overheated and the raw material is burnt.
Cause: The temperature is too high and the mold hole is too small.
Method: Reduce the temperature and replace the mold.
3. Failure: Sudden jamming.
Reason: The outlet is stuck with particles.
Method: Stop the machine to clean.
4. Failure: The screw and screw ring cannot be disengaged.
Reason: The screw groove is filled with material. Method: Burn the material in the groove or use the machine oil to dip it.
5. Failure: The particle size is too large.
Cause: The exit die hole is worn.
6. Failure: The particle size is too small.
Cause: The exit die hole is too small.
Method: Appear finishing.
