Conditioning, or adding heat and moisture in the feed mill during the pelleting process, is a way to optimize pellet quality, but proper methods must be used to achieve the best results.
When dealing only with the pelleting system, it is apparent that conditioning is the most important factor that influences pellet quality.
On average, electricity and thermal energy represent about 6% of the production cost of feed. Given the latest increases in electricity prices, this percentage has a huge impact on the cost of the final product.
