Feed mixer

Feed mixer

Mixers are used in feed mills for the mixing of feed ingredients and premixes. The mixer plays a vital role in the feed production process, with efficient mixing being the key to good feed production. If feed is not mixed properly, ingredients and nutrients will not be properly distributed with it comes time to extrude, pelletize the feed, or if the feed is to be used as mash. This means that the feed will not have even nutritional benefit would be bad for the animal/fish/shrimp that are feeding on the feed.

Mixer types

There are a number of different type of mixers used in the feed industry with the most widely used being:

* Vertical Mixer - Used in small farms, they consist of a vertical screw which takes material to the top where it falls back down again, and repeats that process to mix materials

* Horizontal Mixer - Comprising of paddles or blades attached to a horizontal rotor, these mixers are normally mixer and can usually have a higher consistent homogeneity and short mixing times.
