The small feed pellet machine is the home equipment for producing various animal feed pellets, and the output per hour is between 500kg/h and 2t/h. Commercial feed pellet mills are more suitable for large and medium-sized farms. The feed pellet machine can process feed pellets of different diameters by changing different flat die molds. The pelleting machines of the Shuliy factory are all in stock and can support bulk purchases by domestic and foreign customers.

What is feed pellet?

Pellet feed refers to raw materials such as straw and grain that are crushed and pressed into granular feed with different diameters through a special die. According to the raw material composition of the pellet feed, it can be divided into concentrate feed pellets, mixture pellets, coarse feed pellets, etc. Mixed material particles and coarse material particles are mostly used.

Mixture granules are generally weighted in proportion to energy feed, bran feed, protein feed, additives, etc., fully stirred and mixed evenly, and then pressed into granules.

Coarse material granules are granules made by kneading and crushing roughage (such as dry corn stalks) and pressing them without binders.

Feed pellet machine for making poultry feeds

A flat Die Feed Pellet Making Machine is a domestic and commercial animal feed extrusion equipment, which can be used to produce poultry feed of various specifications. The structure of the feed pellet mill includes feed inlet, mold, grinding disc, outlet, etc. Usually, the power mode of the feed pellet machine can choose motor and diesel engine.

The pellet feed machine is based on the circular motion of the grinding disc to quickly process feed pellets. The mold and pressure roller of the machine is made of high-quality alloy steel with special treatment.

The spindle and flat die of the machine drive the pressure roller to rotate under the action of friction, while the material is paste and protein solidification denatured at high temperature between the pressure roller and the die, and finally discharged from the die hole under the pressure roller extrusion. We can also adjust the length of the feed pellets by setting the position of the cutter at the discharge of the feed pellet mill.

Requirements of raw materials for making animal feed pellets


Small feed pellet mill has different moisture requirements for different raw materials. The moisture requirement of common raw materials can be controlled between 10% and 18%, and make sure the raw materials are mixed evenly. If the raw material humidity is large, you can use the dryer for drying or drying.


Feed pellet mill pelletizing requirements: the maximum size of raw materials should not exceed the diameter of the die hole of the machine. For example, if the machine uses a die plate with a die hole of 6mm, the maximum size of the raw material should not exceed 6mm, and the user can control the size of the raw material according to the die hole diameter of the die plate.

Ingredients and binders

The feed pellet mill can use a single raw material, or a raw material mixed with different raw materials. But the raw materials should not be mixed with iron, stone, and other hard materials, otherwise, it will damage the machine. No additives are needed in the raw material to achieve high-quality pellet making. However, in order to improve the output and to significantly extend the service life of the machine’s die plate, pressure roller, and other wearing parts, it is recommended that customers use a certain amount of binder reasonably.

Why choose feed pellet machines for farms?

This kind of feed pellet machine is mostly used in farms and livestock farms, such as chicken farms, horse farms, cattle farms, sheep farms, pig farms, etc. Different types of animal feed pellets can be processed using the flat die feed pellet machine.

Main advantages of feed pellets for farm animals

  • Feed pellets are beneficial to the digestion of poultry and livestock. The pellet feed processed by the feed pellet machine has a certain hardness, which gets a certain extension in the time of chewing by poultry, and the digestion problem of cattle and sheep is greatly changed.
  • The taste feed pellets taste better. Because the pellet mill is in the pressing process, it will naturally extrude and warm up to about 70 degrees, which can make the starch paste, the internal ripening of the pellet, making the feed pellet emit a faint grass flavor. And the surface of the feed pellet is smooth and better taste, which can improve the livestock intake and can make the livestock slaughter earlier.
  • The feed pellet mill can also mix a variety of materials and preventive drugs together to make pellets. So cattle and sheep and other poultry want to pick food are no way. This can reasonably distribute nutrition and prevent common diseases of animals in advance.
  • Feed pellets are easy to store and can reduce the floor space of raw materials. Through the feed pellet machine making a good pellet feed can reduce the footprint of raw materials and can be stored for a certain long time, not easy to moisture, and can effectively avoid moldy raw materials, powder moisture, and other situations.
