Cattle Feed Plant
We manufacture and develop advanced cattle feed
plants, in all standard capacities with robust construction. The plant is
fully automatic in its operation, ensuring uniform and same proportion of
the ingredients in the final mixture. In the plant, there is a grinder,
elevator, mixer, hopper, palletiser, winch and a screw conveyor for
efficient functioning. The elevator is used for automatically feeding the
cattle feed into the grinder. We also hold expertise for customizing the
cattle feed plant as to meet the specific production targets of the clients.
Process Description for Fully / Semi Automatic Cattle / Poultry Feed
Servotech Fully and Semi Automatic Cattle &
Poultry Feed Plant is specially engineered to batch, weigh and grind
different types of ingredients, mixing them uniformly, mollasify, and then
pelletize them, if required. Some of the important machines assembled in the
plant are described below:-
Weighing and Batching
There is sufficient number of storage bins
attached according to the capacity of the plant. The bins are suitable for
storing different varieties of ingredients. After the bins, there is a
weighing system that is PLC controlled for ensuring accurate and continuous
preparation of each batch, eliminating any kind of manual interference.
The hammer mill in the plant is used for reducing
grains, hulls and oil cakes into powder form as to facilitate admixture into
the feed. Hammering is done in a confined space that reduces the material
into fine particle sizes for an easy passage through the interchangeable
sieve that can be changed easily and quickly. The mills are welded
structures constructed out of high grade steel. The upper part of the mill
and a dynamically balanced rotor attached with it is properly lined with
grooved wearing plates. All the components and parts used in the mill are of
made from special grade steels that ensure long life of the parts. There is
a dimensioned hinged cover in the mill that makes the changing of the sieves
quite easy and along with it also facilitates the inspection of hammers.
In feed formulation, a wide range of ingredients are used and
thus, proper mixing and homogenization is of great importance for quality
end product. In the plant, there is an attached horizontal mixer, designed
with multiple spiral elements for uniform mixing of the ingredients. Mixer
is simple in construction and reliable in operation. With high capacity, the
mixer ensures mixing in less time with excellent homogeneity.
Molassifer is an indispensable compound fed into modern
feed mills. The compound helps in enriching the mealy products with liquid
components such as fat, molasses, emulsions, etc without any kind of lumps
formation. In the molassifier, swirling, intense beating and pushing action,
homogeneously disperse the molasses and other liquids throughout the feed
with the passage from inlet to the outlet. There is no grinding action
during the process due to the special design of the rotator.
Pelletiser and Cooler
Agglomeration of the floury materials into
firm pieces is generally known as pelletisation. Before feeding into the
pelleting machine, the feed stock is properly conditioned in the feeder
conditioner, provided with the machine. The pellets emerging out of the
pelleting machine is quite brittle while hot. On cooling, the pellets become
firm and resist breakage, and thus cooling is must after pelletisation. For
cooling the pellets, there is also provided a cooler with the machine.
Detailed Working of the Plant
Different ingredients for the process
are selected depending upon the specific requirements for particular
Total one ton of charge made by is calculating and weighing different
selected items that are then fed into intake hopper.
There are different types of materials that are carried from the intake
hopper to the rotary screen in which the oversize materials are reverted
back to hopper above hammer mill. The screened small size materials are
directly transferred to mixing section as these do not require grinding,
while, the broken lumps are grinded in the hammer mill to a fine powder. The
ground material is then taken to mixing section hopper for uniform mixing.
The mixing section is equipped with a batch mixer of two ton capacity. In
these mixers, only five to ten minutes are taken for complete mixing and
further the mixed material is dropped into hopper attached below the mixer.
After mixing, the material is fed into mollasifying section in which,
mollases are added. In some cases, where material does not require
pelletising, the material is directly taken to storage bin.
In pelletising section, an open or jacket steam is applied for conditioning
the material. Depending upon the requirement, the material is broken down
into pellets of 8 mm to 12 mm diameter in a pelletiser. The broken pellets
are then cooled, stored, bagged and weighed.
