Why should poultry feed processing machine lubricated?

Poultry feed processing machine manufacturers all know that during the operation of the feed machinery, there will be corresponding friction between the parts in contact with each other, from damage to the parts to affecting the production of mechanical equipment, thus causing the mechanical equipment to fail and causing huge economic losses to the enterprise.

Therefore, regular lubrication is usually required to ensure the normal operation of the poultry feed pellet making machine.

When lubricating feed machinery, poultry feed processing machine manufacturers usually include several different lubrication states, which can be divided into boundary friction, dry friction and liquid friction.

Generally speaking, lubricating the friction parts of equipment can effectively reduce friction, greatly reduce equipment wear and performance consumption, improve equipment operating efficiency, and prolong equipment life. As one of the main means to improve equipment performance, lubrication technology has become a common concern in related fields.

Poultry feed processing machine manufacturers need to pay attention that in the process of lubrication, they should not be blindly carried out, but should formulate a lubrication management plan in line with the development of the enterprise according to the actual production situation of the poultry feed machinery itself, so as to make greater efforts for the normal operation of the enterprise equipment. contribution.Why should the poultry feed pellet making machine be kept lubricated?

In general, the importance of lubricating care has been emphasized again and again, mainly because proper lubricating care can significantly reduce the wear level of feed pellet mills and ensure smooth production work. As we all know, any poultry feed processing machine will inevitably have problems such as decreased flexibility, decreased operating efficiency and damage after long-term use.

At this time, the maintenance of equipment obviously wastes labor and material resource costs, and causes enterprises to suffer greater economic losses.

Poultry feed processing machines are no exception. In the long-term use process, if there is a lack of corresponding lubrication, the friction strength between the contact parts will inevitably increase, resulting in damage to the parts and affecting the normal use of the entire poultry feed processing machine.

Therefore, having a good lubrication program in place before a problem occurs in the equipment will be a preventive measure to prolong the life of the equipment.

The Followings Are More Frequently Asked Questions about Poultry Feed Pellet Machines:

With the opening of 2022, the sales of Richi Machinery’s poultry feed processing machines have been rising steadily. However, for the small problems caused by the wrong operation of customers, a brief summary is as follows:

1.What should I do if the poultry feed processing machine cannot be pressed?

Encountering this problem, many friends will definitely think that this situation will also occur when their feed pellet machines are producing feed pellets. This is really a headache, not only wasting raw materials, but also greatly increasing the difficulty of screening feed pellets. Today, a technologist will discuss the reasons for this phenomenon with you.

Recently, many customers reported that the poultry pellet machine produced a lot of powder, and the pellets were not tight enough, the feed pellets were always soft, so what happened? (Hot product: cat litter making machine)

In general, is this considered a feed ingredient or formula? Relatively slow production changes, or changes to recipes, can quickly achieve the desired results. Excluding feed ingredients and formulations, we will analyze the machine setup for internal problems.

(1) The mold wear is too large, the sieve holes are flattened, and the expansion is serious, resulting in a decrease in pellet pressure, affecting the pellet forming rate, and causing too much powder.

(2) The moisture content of the raw material is too low or too high. If the water content is too high, the powder will not be too much, but the pellet hardness is lower, and the pellets of the poultry feed pelleting mechanism are easy to loosen. The raw material has a low water content and is difficult to extrude, resulting in too much powder.

(3) The poultry feed pellet machine is aging, the power is insufficient, the motor cannot provide enough speed, and the corresponding pressure is generated to press into pellets.

(4) The quality of the ring die is not good, or the compression is not too high.

(5) Consider using grease.

(6) The feeding scraper is not installed correctly, and the feeding cannot enter the pressing chamber.

(7) The position of the cutter is wrong, and the discharge material is squeezed into powder (but if the hole is often blocked, it is unlikely).

(8) Moisture control refers to the comprehensive control of various factors according to different situations in the whole production process, so that the final water content of the product can reach the expected target of the producer.

The main factors affecting the final water content of feed products are: water content of feed ingredients, water changes in the crushing stage, liquid addition in the mixing stage, steam water content, conditioning level, die hole size and thickness, cooler air volume and air-drying time, packaging. (Hot product: cat litter production line)

The influence of quality management and different climatic and environmental factors (generally, the moisture content of pellet feed after processing shall not exceed 12.5; but in the north, pellet feed shall not exceed 13.5. If processing in summer, due to the high ambient temperature, the optimum moisture content of finished pellets shall not exceed 13.5. 12.5, otherwise it is easy to mold and deteriorate)

Feed pellets are welcomed by more and more farmers and herdsmen with their unique advantages. It is easy to store and transport, and it is also good for animal digestion. Compared with ordinary feed, it is rich in nutrients and has a good market prospect.

In fact, the production process of feed pellets is a process of distribution ratio, as long as you master the ratio. Of course, when the pellets start, of course unskilled, but do it twice. The general poultry feed processing machine manufacturer’s manual will explain the distribution ratio of feed pellets, which can be referred to.

2.No pellets


The new poultry feed processing machine was not run-in with lubricating oil or was not run-in enough;

The moisture content of feed raw materials is too high;


Remove the raw materials in the current poultry feed processing machine, and add oil to the raw materials to run in the new machine, and the ratio of each time is: 1:3

Add some dry ingredients to adjust the moisture.

3.The motor stops suddenly


The voltage is too low.

The pressure between the pressing roller and the die plate is too high.


Use 4mm wire to avoid tripping during use.

Loosen some screws.
