Pelleting

A pelleting line in connection with the feed pellet mill provides many advantages

A pellet line consists of several steps, where a pellet press is the main machine. At SKIOLD we supply customers with top of the line pellet machines and equipment such as crumblers, sifters, and coolers.

Pelleting offers following advantages:

Good feed hygiene: During the feed pelleting process, a temperature of 81° or more is easily obtained, by which Salmonella is removed. The temperature is obtained by adding steam, and by means of the heat from the friction that is generated when the feed is pressed through the die. The high temperature also destroys the most common bacteria and fungi.

Increased nutritional value: The digestibility of the feed is increased as a result of the heat treatment and the subsequent cooling in the feed pelleting process.

Reduced waste: Transportation of pellets is considerably cleaner and less dust developing than transportation of meal feed.

Easy dosing: Using an animal feed pellet maker makes dosing easier and more accurate.

No separation: Heavy particles such as minerals and the like do not segregate, hence it is not possible for the animals to be selective.

Increased density: In general, pellets have a 15% higher bulk density compared to meal.

Transportation and storage: It is easier to transport pellets, as they do not get stuck in pipes, bins, etc. The durability when storing is also longer for pellets than for meal feed.
