This is an eye opener; I never knew silage/foliage could be processed further; we get it raw and feed it raw to animals.

Dear Sir,

This is an useful information. Would appreciate if you could assist where can i find any reading or informations redarding DDC paddle adjustment. At what angle in each section of the DDC (front, middle, and back) in order to increase the retention time. Our current pelletmill is running at 30 secs and we are looking forward for 2 minutes retention time in order to improve the gelatinazition.

Can I use speed invertor to control the rpm of the DDC in order to lenghten the retention time?

Appreciate if you could assist.
Thanks and regards,

Jordache good morning because I have the same problem, I will transfer my opinion to you,at my own factory we noticed that the weigh-in is missing and we have uncooked,and after we corrected this, we lost about 1% of various losses..it will be a good idea to get your factory maker to improve your opium.

i want to specify that this damage is not due to theft, because the factory is equipped with cameras surveillance.

please help me to discover process problems.

DDC IS new concept of preconditioning which gives additional features of moisture, weight and retention control through automatic load cells, moisture sensors and invertor speed control. other features like temperature, mixing and pellet mill amperage control are also available in conventional conditioners.

this is what I understand

any comment, video or explanation from author/ supplier or any user is highly appreciated for our knowledge.

Hi, does anyone know why my pellet mill runs so erratically? it runs fine but then every 20 seconds the amps go right up and nearly stalls. I cannot get it to stay at a constant level.
