How Does an Animal Feed Pellet Machine Work?

The next depiction is the animal feed pelleting process, by reading the following content, you can know the working principle of the animal feed pellet mill in detail.

Feeding and Conditioning

The process starts with feeding the raw materials into the animal feed pellet machine. Depending on the specific requirements, the raw materials might undergo conditioning, where they are mixed with water, steam, or other additives to improve their workability and pelletization.


The conditioned or ground raw materials are then fed into the animal feed pellet machine’s chamber, which houses a die and rollers. The die is a metal plate with small holes, and the rollers press against the die as they rotate. The pressure exerted by the rollers forces the raw materials through the holes in the die, compacting and shaping them into pellets.

Die and Roller Interaction

The die contains holes of a specific size and shape, determining the diameter of the pellets. The rotation of the rollers against the die generates friction and heat, which softens the materials and promotes the binding of particles together. The pellets are formed as they emerge from the die.

Cutting and Sizing

As the pellets exit the die, they are cut to the desired length by a cutting mechanism of the feed pellet making machine. The speed of the cutting mechanism determines the pellet length. The uniform cutting ensures that the pellets are consistent in size, which is crucial for animal consumption and handling.
