Diesel floating fish feed machine is widely used to produce high-grade aquatic feed pellets such as fish, catfish, shrimp, crab and so on. It has become the ideal equipment for small and medium-sized fish farms and fish feed processing plants.

Diesel Engine Fish Feed Machine

The transmission of diesel fish feed pellet making machine is a diesel engine, which give power to the main shaft by V-belt and belt pulley. Equip the diesel engine can solve the problem of electricity shortage and electricity not stable.

Why Need to Buy a Fish Feed Extruder?

Aquaculture is currently the fastest growing food production sector in the world, currently accounting for nearly 50% of the world’s food fish, and is considered an income-generating activity. However, fish feed makes fish farming expensive because fish feed accounts for at least 60% of the total production cost. Therefore, many farmers tend to buy fish feed manufacturing machines to produce their own fish feed to reduce costs.

For almost all large and medium-sized fisheries, it is more economical to produce fish food pellets than buy them from the market. So the answer to this question is yes.

Manufacturing Process of Fish Feed Machine

It uses extrusion technology to produce feed pellets from different raw materials. Extrusion is the process of cooking raw materials under a certain temperature, humidity and pressure. When the fish feed extruder is working, the temperature of the extrusion chamber is 100-120°C due to the action of the electric heater.

High temperature can kill bacteria and pathogens during the operation of the machine. There is a temperature indication on the panel of the fish feed extruder. Once the set temperature is reached, the thermocouple will automatically stop heating. During the high-temperature ripening process, the starch and fiber in the raw material swell. Then under pressure conditions, the material is formed into pellets by a forming die. At the end of the spindle, we have a cutting machine to cut the ball to a certain length.

Features of Diesel Engine Fish Feed Machine

  • The finished feed pellets have a unique shape, good taste, high nutritional value and smooth texture.
  • The extruded pellets can float in water for more than 12 hours without worrying about pollution.
  • Floating fish feed extruder has become the ideal equipment for small and medium-sized fish farms (catfish, tilapia, shrimp, etc.).
  • Compared with buying fish feed, it is very cost-effective to make your own fish feed pellets with a fish feed extruder.
  • Fish feed pellets have good taste and high nutritional value.
  • The screw sleeve of this small fish food extruder adopts alloy steel bar structure with long service life.
  • Different molds can be selected to make pellets of different diameters and shapes.
  • The raw materials can effectively kill harmful bacteria through high temperature and high pressure to ensure the hygiene of feed.
