sir regarding the installation,we follow the clearance between the die and roller,but the result of our run test is not good,the raw materials mashed clogged on the die.the roller can not press hard so the output of pellet is so little...our die holes diameter is 4 mm. originally the clearance is zero but its okay it can run continuous.we use feeler gauge for measuring clearance.please advise.thank you
