Pet food extruder is a machine that can process various grains into various shapes. A pet food extruder is also called a twin-screw extrusion puffing machine. The machine can produce various puffed snacks, rice flour, cereals, etc. in addition to pet food. There is also a single-screw puffing machine, which is mainly used for food puffing, livestock and poultry feed, or for puffing a single raw material. And two screw extrusion puffing machines, are mainly used for high-grade aquatic materials, pet food production, and processing, especially viscous materials processing. And customers can choose the pet food production line to save much time and power.

What is a pet food extruder?

We have different models of pet food extruders. And four of them are hot products. They differ mainly in output. The machine is highly automated, only one person is enough from feeding to finished product. Also, it has a compact structure and a small footprint. And it is an easy-to-learn operation and precise parameter control ensures that the product is finished at a specific temperature, pressure, humidity, and time.

Application range of two screw extruder machine

Raw material: Soybean, sorghum, millet, wheat, corn, and other grains.
Usage: The finished feeds are suitable for different pets such as dogs, cats, fish, birds, rabbits, shrimps, dogs, cats, mink, foxes, etc. It is suitable for breeders, and small and medium-sized feed mills.

In the case of the same feed formula, so that the cost of homemade puffed feed is lower than the market price of 60%-80%.

Structure of the double screw extruder

The machine mainly includes a feeding system, extrusion system, rotary cutting system, heating system, transmission system, and control system. And the machine has advanced screw extrusion puffing technology. Also, it has a high temperature and pressure to cook material into shape. What’s more, the main machine adopts frequency conversion speed regulation to ensure the stability of the production process.

How does the screw feed extruder work?

The screw feed extruder has two pairs of screws that mesh with each other and rotate in the same direction. So, together they play the role of conveying, frictional extrusion, and heating. So, the screw extrudes, shears, and mixes the raw materials in the barrel. And then the high temperature and pressure will cook the material and the exit die will expand them to various shapes.

What are the features of the pet food extrusion equipment?

  1. Adopting frequency converter speed control technology, which makes the equipment run more smoothly and saves electricity.
  2. Also, the screw and barrel are heat-treated with alloy steel, with high hardness and long life. And we can combine the building block combination structure at will.
  3. What’s more, the forced lubrication system ensures that the transmission part of the equipment has a longer life.
  4. Then the automatic temperature control system makes temperature control more intuitive and parameters more accurate.
  5. Also, with the self-cleaning function of the screw, no need to disassemble the screw to clean it after stopping.

Successful case

A customer from Lesotho wanted to set up a pet food manufacturing plant. So, he sent us an inquiry about the machine by visiting our website. And through communication, we understood that the customer wanted to purchase a pet food production line. So, based on the customer’s production requirements, we sent the customer the PI for the DL65-III and DL65-II models. And after browsing, the customer expressed his satisfaction with the machine parameters. Later, he said the price of the machine was high and he needed time to raise the money. And after two months, the customer contacted us. He said he could buy the machine.
