Technology of production

     One of the most simple and effective technological schemes of animal feed production is serial (in-line) scheme. The source components are pre-cleaned and each one is placed into separate bunker. After that the components are weighed metered depending on the form of manufactured feed. Prepared mixture goes into crusher, which simultaneously does component shredding and mixing. Then mixture is sieved goes into extruder. While extrusion milled mixture is treated by high mechanical pressure (30-50 atm), it heats up due to friction (120-150 ºC) and turns into crashed mass. At the exit of the extruder the mass swells , due to the large pressure drop. The starch contained in the end feedstock turns into dextrin, which is easily assimilated by the animal organism, and a large part of the micro flora (bacteria, fungi) is destroyed.






Developed management system provides fodder production with:

  • continuous operation and equipment control of the unit;
  • manual and automatic control of transport (conveyors, bucket elevators, valves, changeover valves) and process (crusher, extruder) equipment of the unit;
  • control of the silos filling level(with the use of level sensors with analog & discrete signals);
  • crusher smooth start(200 kW);
  • regulating of feedstock supply to the crusher depending on crusher load level;
  • display of equipment operating modes status and emergency situations.

     In development of the control system was performed integration into extruder automation system which is unique for Ukraine - ExtruTech, Bliss (USA) performance 6 t/h.
