Post-cooking machine - Rotary Post-conditioner (For Aqua Feed)
IDAH Post-conditioner was proposed and invented by IDAH in the 1970s and has since become a standard in pellet mill systems in Asia. Post-conditioning is the most effective and economic method to achieve high-quality pellets. The quality of the pellets is determined by how well the water stability and the nutrient retention when pellets are fed to the water.
The rotary post-conditioner has a cylinder shape with a steam heat jacket. The heating will help to prolong the pellet cooking process. The interior of the drum is equipped with fins to keep the pellets mixing and tumbling during operation. The combination of heating and tumbling motion will help to take out a small amount of moisture from the pellets.
The post-conditioning system is specially used for pelleted aqua feed. This system is essential for the production of shrimp feed and pelleted fish feed. This machine is used to prolong the cooking while avoiding condensation inside the post-conditioner. Sufficient post-conditioning will help aqua feed possess better water stability, digestibility, and higher PDI.
