As you would expect, there are various types and particle machine design. The two main types of flat die pellet mill and ring die pellet mill. Flat die pellet mill is built around the turn of the 20th century, the production of animal feed. Ring die pellet mill is not really develop until 1950. All granulators mind is to feed compressed into pellets. There are processed into feed pellets several advantages. Firstly, the particular feed mixture, minerals and vitamins can be produced for each animal. In addition, in the form of pellets, it is very easy to allocate the correct amount of feed for the animals every day, without wasting and over-feeding. Finally, due to the increase in the density of the feed and compressed form, significantly reducing transport costs. Here is a brief introduction to the flat die and ring die pellet mill granulator.
Flat die pellet mill
Let us first understand the basic design and operation of the flat die pellet mill: a solid metal plate sit below a series of compression rollers. Material from above and lowered into the mold through between the rollers and compression. Finished pellets were then fall through the bottom die and leave the granulator. Because of this design, flat die pellet mill is mainly used for small-scale production, especially for homeowners and small-scale producers, animal feed or fuel pellets.
Ring die pellet mill
Similarly, unlike the design of the flat die pellet mill, ring die pellet mill die horizontally not vertically. Raw materials into the center of the mold, and through a series of compression rollers mold compression. Most ring die pellet mill has two pressure rollers; however, some of the ring die pellet mill three or four compression rolls.
It is not correct to say which is the superior design of the granulator, because it depends on many factors. Each type of pellet mill has its own advantages and disadvantages, so users should avoid weaknesses, and avoiding disadvantages during use.
