The use of pet food extrusion equipment in the pet supplies industry is widespread and established, mainly due to the following benefits of the production process:
- Fast - Pet food extruders operate continuously, yielding high quantity to meet strict production deadlines. Diamond America extruders are designed for fast, easy changeover and cleaning between runs.
- Flexible – Extrusion pet food manufacturing is adaptable, for application to a wide range of input material types. Also, extrusion can produce many different forms of final product in terms of shape, texture and color.
- Consistent - Pet food extrusion and cutting produces a very uniform end product of constant cross section and size. The process is extremely controllable and reliable, allowing high quality to be maintained throughout.
- Efficient - The highly repeatable extrusion process is low in cost, especially once conditions have been optimized. Precise process control and automation reduces waste and boosts productivity.
Pet food extrusion equipment can be used on all forms of manufactured feed: dry food (sometimes called kibble), semi-moist products and treats. Common pet food ingredients include flour, meal, grits, meat, fats, minerals, amino acids and vitamins, often with the addition of flavor enhancers, texturing agents and preservatives.
The growing industry dictates frequent product changes, both in ingredients and aesthetics, to suit market trends and demands. The adaptability of pet food extrusion equipment easily accommodates process innovation and variation, without significant changes in machine configuration.
1.Working principle: Pet food is plant or animal material intended for consumption by dogs or other canines. In extruder, the ingredients are cooked under intense heat and pressure as it moves toward the open end of the extruder where ingredients pass through a shaping die.
2. Different shapes can be made by adjusting the dies from extruder
3. Output can be 150kg/h, 260kg/h, 500kg/h, 1000kg/h
4. Flow chart:Mixing system---Extrusion system----Drying system----Flavoring system--Packing system
5.Raw material: corn flour, wheat flour, wheat bran, soy meal, meat & bone powder, animal fat, vegetable powder, salt, water
6. Voltage in China: Three phases: 380V/50Hz, Single phase: 220V/50Hz, we can make it according to customers' Local voltage
7. All the machines are made by stainless steel, this line is with reasonable design and with high automation; the screws are made
by alloysteel, with building block system structure and self-cleaning function
Raw Materials: Adopts soya meal, fish meal, bone meal, rice bran etc. As raw materials.
