The determination of the mixing time is very important for mixing quality, it depends on the mixing speed of the feed mixer. In addition to mixing time, the following conditions are equally important.

Determination Of The Mixing Time

If the mixing time is too short, the material will not fully mix in the mixer and will discharge, and the mixing quality will not guarantee. If the mixing time is too long, the material over-mixed in the mixer to cause separation, which also affects the quality and increases the energy consumption. The determination of the mixing time depends on the mixing speed of the mixer, which is mainly determined by the model of the mixer. Such as the horizontal ribbon mixer, usually 3 to 5 minutes per batch, the mixing time depends on the type and nature of the raw materials, such as moisture content, particle size, fat content.

Suitable Input Of The Feed Mixing Machine

Regardless of the type of mixer, a suitable input is a prerequisite for the mixer to function properly and to achieve the desired results. If there is too much input, on the one hand, the mixer will overload. On the other hand, too much input will affect the mixing process of the materials in the machine. Which will cause the mixing quality to drop. If the input is too small, the efficiency of the mixer will not fully utilize and the quality of the mixture will also affect.

Therefore, no matter which type of mixer, the loading degree of the material should effectively control. So as to ensure the normal operation of the mixer and make the mixed feed meet the quality requirements.

Try To Avoid Separation Of The Feed Mixing Machine

Any powder with good fluidity has a tendency to separate.

There are three reasons for separation:

  1. When the material falls on a pile, the larger particles fall to the pile due to the large inertia. And the small particles with less inertia may embed in the crack on the pile.
  2. The material vibrated, the smaller particles have a tendency to move to the bottom. While the larger particles have a tendency to move to the top.
  3. If the mixture blown or fluidized, it will correspondingly occur separation with differences in particle size and density.

Reasonable Operation Sequence Of The Feed Mixing Machine

In the order of feeding, generally, first added a component with a large proportion. And then a small number of components placed on the material. Among various materials, a large particle size generally added to the mixer first, and a small particle size added later. The density of the materials also varies. When there is a large difference, the materials with low density generally added first, followed the materials with high density.

Choosing a suitable feed mixing machine and using it properly will significantly improve the quality of the mix. It will soon reflect a benign effect in the production process. If you can further master the technology of self-mixing, you can also greatly reduce the cost of materials, thereby increasing profits.
