FEECO HIGH-SPEED MIXERS
FEECO high-speed mixers are used in the production of phosphate based animal feeds. These vertical mixers are mounted on top of pugmill mixers to provide a thorough reaction of the feed components and mixture of materials prior to further mixing and granulation in the pugmill mixer.
FEECO is capable of meeting the requirements necessary for CE marking equipment.
All FEECO equipment and process systems can be outfitted with the latest in automation controls from Rockwell Automation. The unique combination of proprietary Rockwell Automation controls and software, combined with our extensive experience in process design and enhancements with hundreds of materials provides an unparalleled experience for customers seeking innovative process solutions and equipment.

HOW HIGH-SPEED MIXER GRANULATION WORKS
The high-speed mixer is composed of a vertical tube with a shaft running down the center. The shaft is affixed with several paddles that spin as the shaft rotates. The shaft spins at around 300-400 RPMs to create a homogeneous mixture of the feed components. This allows for intimate mixing and a thorough reaction of the materials.
Once thoroughly mixed, material exits the high-speed mixer, where it is fed by gravity into the pugmill mixer. The reaction finishes, and granulation takes place in the pugmill. The granules are then dried in a rotary dryer.
The high-speed mixer approach to animal feed granulation is unique to FEECO and produces a high quality, premium animal feed product. The thorough mixing provided by the high-speed mixer improves the reaction, increases granule uniformity and crush strength, and also produces more on-size pellets than a traditional pugmill-mixer-to-dryer approach.
