Then last 5 paddles will be 10 deg ...

Dear Sir, I mean wet pelleting with increased moisture percent and then use of dryer . As dryer is easy to handle and operate in comparison to steam generator? The process of production should be short and would also reduce manpower requirement at small farmer's level not at commercial level? May kindly comment. With regds, PP AMBALKAR

Dear Mr. Ambalkar, in pelleting process you can't omit the conditioner since it is one of the Important part of the process since at conditioner you are cooking the materials to make it gelatinize for better digestibility, second it sterilize the compound feeds, third it will help to increase your throughput of your pellet mill with lesser electricity costs. Forth, you will have better FACT if you ...

Dear All Friends in the Industry, All above items that being mentioned are very important like its starch level, particle size, conditioning, etc. also don't forget your die plate open area (you can set your own open area based on your formulation) so that you can have a bigger capacity and better quality.
