What’s the conditioning?

Several studies clearly indicate that pelleted feed improves animal performance and most feed mills are using the pelleting process to reduce pathogens, increase the density of the feed and minimize segregation of ingredients during transport and feeding.

The vertical cooler

The pellet cooler is used to reduce the high temperature of pellets who just come out from the pellet mill to above room temperature. It plays an important role in large pellet mill plant because the cooling process guarantee pellets production continuously.

Pellet mill capacity and feed distribution

Press capacity depends substantially on pellet quality (stability according to the PDI, Pellet Durability Index). The durability of pellets shall be determined by tumbling the test sample for 10 seconds at 500 rpm, in a dust-tight enclosure.
