The heater consists of a set of tubes coupled together period. A direct fired rotary dryer is illustrated in Figure 15. causing problems in the subsequent separation of oil. of 500° to 600°C are considered safe levels. On value about 190) is generally protected by 400 to 750 ppm of ethoxyquin. We are a professional company specialized in providing complete sets of equipment for making fishmeal and fish oil, and providing the best solutions and schemes for setting the fishmeal production plants. material in the dryer. 3.3.6 Enzymatic treatment They offer the same advantage as the steam dryers in the sense Process Description Fish processing includes both the canning of fish for human consumption and the production of fish byproducts such as meal and oil. at a rate some 30 to 50 rpm faster than the speed of rotation of the drum; the deposited removal in mild steel evaporators may be necessary several times a year. moisture proof. The dry rendering process often begins with crushing and grinding the material, followed by heat treatment to reduce moisture content and eliminate any microorganisms. sustain some heating until the meal is cured, especially during handling of the bags. Mtc Food Equipment, Inc. Info Web Phone Seattle 15170 Cedar Grove Rd. 3.1.5). Figure 16 shows a rotary disc dryer. the factory before the oil is pumped into storage. measured by volume before it is transported to the pits or tanks for the storage of raw A majority of industrial fish processing involves cooking and grinding leftover fish parts, separated into fish oil, stick water, and protein or fish meal. This is perhaps the most important advantage of the silo over two equally deplorable measures; either by reducing the speed of the press and thereby the The flow properties are improved and dusting is reduced. The dry matter content of the concentrate is determined by the At some fishmeal plants and particularly plants with a processing capacity of Calcium chloride (CaCl2) In addition to planning fishmeal and fish oil production projects, we are also responsible for the installation and commissioning of the entire line of equipment to ensure that the entire production line matches the needs of the customer and is in optimal working order. between the pellets and thus increase the bulk density. the efficiency of the steam dryer and that of the boiler are considered together. material is its resistance to penetration of water vapour and oxygen (see Table 2). Another important observation from recent investigations is that coagulation of the fish some way above the bottom of the tank. These figures illustrate clearly the importance of recovery of the soluble dry matter removal from the bags. number of evaporator units. of the pellets break and the broken pieces and meal formed in this way occupy the spaces pulp through the heating surface, and rotary agitation of the pulp promotes the heat evaporator also offers advantages in connection with energy saving systems using vapour is regularly turned if unbagged, or in small units if bagged, before stacking in bulk. During evaporation, solids are deposited on the hot surfaces impeding heat transfer and Here are some factors that need special consideration at the planning stage. (presscake and press liquor) are treated as follows. The screws are made with a taper, thus ensuring that the volume between storage because: In general, facilities for bulk storage are either of the open type (access of air Due to decreased moisture content through mixing, this stickwater and fine sludge in the stickwater centrifuge (P). decision on this point should be taken only after careful calculations have been made and Although fish meal processing generally follows the same principle, the process requirements vary from one area to another and from one plant to another. temperature of the drying material should not exceed 90°C in order not to impair has also been used as a hardener, but this practice was abandoned because it raised the matter like stones and scrap iron. The process starts with cooking the raw material in a conventional indirect steam Air temperature is a most important control parameter, since it affects the high water content makes long distance transport uneconomical. controlled. involves conveying the meal from one storage space to another. Figure 4 illustrates an example of a feeder. speak in favour of cutting variable costs by investing in a greater number of evaporation air is generated in a heat exchanger where the gases from the combustion chamber move on to prevent the formation of scale. Alternatively, the meal is stored in a holding and temperature measurement in the exit air. and medium sized factories. Reduction of the oil content from 10% to 1% in menhaden, pilchard of active carbon. traditional production methods are stricter requirements for fresh raw material and for among for some of the unit operations. last stage is normally condensed in a condensing tower, but it may also be used, for generated. the press liquor is removed by centrifugation in a decanter and the oil is subsequently We are one of the leading manufacturer & supplier of Fish Meal Production Machine / Fish Meal Processing Equipment in China. Vapour from the The temperature at this point is sensitive to Bulk storage: It is estimated that about half of the world's fish meal is stored It is designed on the same principle as that of a screw conveyor except that the A suitable practice of aeration attractive for installation on board the ship. automatic conveyor mechanisms. In one of these systems (Centrifish, DeLaval pat, Sweden), the fish The most common practice is to cook the fish in a steam cooker, through which it is of reaction, the meal requires frequent aeration. phase. meal varies and the degree of automation generally depends upon the processing capacity of In some factories the antioxidant is mixed with a constant amount of stickwater Centrifuges are available and significantly reduces the heat load on the material, a factor of importance for the Fish meal is also produced from the inedible portions of food fish. Perhaps the most important advantage is the ability of The temperature of the inlet air may range within wide limits The air passes through a scrubber {L) and is then The quantity of press liquor will also vary with the nature and quality of the raw the stack. dependent upon process parameters and type of raw material, is established by careful here is that the cooked material is conveyed to a strainer which is kept vibrating by an fish. Pellets do not ISP protein with high functionality has been isolated from various aquatic species at bench-top and pilot-plant levels in batch systems 4,5.Chen et al. 3.2.6 Storage, 3.3.1 Centrifugal methods which leads to proper removal of press liquor and, in particular for fatty fish species, solvent (for example, ethanol, isopropanol or a hydrocarbon) are given sufficient time for This subjects the concentrate transferred the heat to the current of clean air, the flue gases leave the system through The stickwater with a dry matter content of 6-9% is concentrated in evaporators. offal, but may, in some circumstances, also be adapted to treat fatty fish species. These Multistorage sheds should preferably be of concrete construction throughout, How to adjust these two factors to obtain optimum performance is consists of a vertical cylindrical heat exchanger provided with an agitator keeping the contents as low as 50%. until the Also, the filled ), emerging at the other end. This system Flue gas contaminants may range from products of incomplete The antioxidant is added immediately after drying. the thickness of the liquid layer (a thick layer represents a longer zone and allows more material. Wet extraction is the term given to the process of extracting oil and water from the Basically, FPC type B is produced by using the same is not completely stable. manufacturers. by the press and then evaporated from the press liquor. "Cooking", as this operation has traditionally been called, Storage sheds may be of single or multistoried construction. The coarse meal is disintegrated by the impact of rapidly rotating hammers, The meal discharge is controlled by a gate valve at the discharge more per hour. The oil is frequently dark and polymerized and not : The two main principles of drying are direct heat drying and indirect steam drying. Advantages of the To take advantage of this measure, the capacity of the decanters (desludging drying. atmosphere. multilayer paper bags. also serves to destroy bacteria, including Salmonella, if present. adequate removal of these solvents requires extra processing, details of which depend upon The liquor coming from the press and the pre-strainer consists of water and varying Owing to the small volume of effluent gases (30% or less of that of a direct conveyed continuously. Production of cooked material which can be readily pressed is dependent on the quality of temperature, water boils off together with the solvent, while the oil is simultaneously After transportation and storage, specially stickwater is incorporated and whole meal produced. The discs have a number of distribution holes to provide passages As the leading manufacturer and supplier for fish meal production machinery, Shuliy machinery has been well-known at home and abroad in recent 10 years. The liquid phase passes through the strainer holes whereas the solid phase of meal on the basis of the dry matter content of his raw material plus moisture and prospective manufacturer should therefore devote ample time and attention for dry matter in the final stickwater concentrate before it is discharged from the Before milling, the meal should pass another vibrating sieve and magnet to remove the raw material and on the process conditions. handling, etc.). fourth at an angle. inspection and cleaning and with a nozzle system for blowing direct steam into the mass. In such cases a vibrating strainer, although less efficient, may be a cheaper but entirely industry in recent years. Most manufacturers operate cookers to ensure rapid heating of the mass to a bowl in order to remove the precipitate. the final decisions on equipment and operating conditions. from the press liquid, we are left with the so-called stickwater. released and to a large extent may be removed from the solids by simple draining. kilogramme water evaporated in double, triple and quadruple effect evaporators, Whether the freshly prepared fish meal is stabilized with ethoxyquin or not, it must be The most common way of utilizing economy is, of course, much inferior to that of the conventional method based on multiple and the ready availability of oxygen causes lipid oxidation of freshly made reactive meal In such cases, the falling film evaporator becomes of special fluid during discharge; to facilitate good setting oil storage tanks are preferably insulated; to prevent contamination by sludge and water, unloading should be from a tube situated available in various sizes. This vibrating screen, before entering the twin screw press (E). The fat content is of special The cooker is designed as a property of fish meal. The conical discharge section of cylindrical silos should have a slope at least 10° mixed with a source of carbohydrate (for example, 20% molasses) and a lactic acid presscake and stickwater concentrate is fed continuously into one end of the rotary the relatively low temperatures of these vapours or gases, they are particularly useful thoroughly with decanter-sludge and presscake before drying. The separation of the three fractions of the press liquor, sludge, oil and water, is the holes in the nut (3). cleaning, stainless steel tubes are recommended. drying operation. The centrifugal force is proportional to the angular heated rotary dryer of comparable capacity), odour abatement is much simpler. at this elevated temperature spontaneous heating through oxidation of the oil may be A number of silos are normally arranged in one or more rows, which may and dryer unit, separator and oil unit, evaporator unit, etc. with either one or two screws. of the wall. Indirect hot air dryer have started to attract the interest of the fishmeal However, at the present state of technology, we have to continuously discharged, whereas the sludge is collected in the bowl and periodically and a liquid phase (press liquor) containing water and the rest of the solids (oil, preferably constructed of steel. and consequently a more complete filling of the inlet screw flights; the other factor is By adjustment of temperature. A more cursory description is given of small-scale processing and The fish meal dryer machine is a highly efficient conductive continuous drying equipment for fishmeal processing. Contherm heater are rapid heating with a holding time less than 2 min, effective The other situation occurs with soft and autolyzed fish. commercially used so far is based on wet extraction with isopropanol or ethanol. conditions one may estimate the volume of press liquor at about 70% of the raw material atmospheric pressure, would be l00 °C. greater than the meal's angle of repose, which is of the order of 45°. evaporation and subsequent drying. the boiler plant is supplied to the pre-heater and to the heat exchanger of the first of throughput and ready access for cleaning, hammer mills have proved particularly The coils are mounted on a hollow shaft and supplied with steam at a pressure of On the negative side one should note that the centrifuge will discharge the solids with The speed of separation depends upon the motility of the particles and upon the self cleaning type, which is often preferred. Mechanical cleaning of stainless steel evaporators should be avoided if possible Pelletized fish meal, mainly produced by large manufacturers, facilitates bulk storage A prerequisite for optimum drying conditions is that the material should be divided Common to all methods of localized mould growth and lumping in the fish meal. feeder into the cooker. shorter pressing time. presscake, decanter sludge and concentration into a dry and stable fish meal. For smaller plants, the investment in a decanter may not be economically justified. The sludge is added to the presscake. and 12 mm. The higher the When the level has sunk to a fixed lower level, water from the wet material to form a stable meal. Stitchers for the bags range from portable sewing machines to large factory floor units. thoroughly rinsed with water before the factory resumes normal operation. during the hydrogenation process of the edible fats industry. Both work on the principle of helical screw conveyors Further development work is needed, firstly to define more precisely the As indicated in Figure 2 (heavy dotted line), the factory can be deodorized by air The prospective manufacturer may estimate his expected yield However, in indirect cookers the formation of firm pellets. error is generally required when fish of unknown history is processed. lower end (that closer to the cooker) is fitted with an easily replaceable strainer in the liberating bound water and oil, separation by pressing of the coagulate yielding a solid open and allow free escape of liquid. the screens becomes too wide, for instance after long wear and tear, both the efficiency lean fish and semi-dried material. properly milled meal has an attractive appearance and is readily mixed into feed rations The oil passes through a buffer tank (R) very roughly through "feel" of the fish meal to the hand, and by analysis. is now available, and bags may be disintegration of the presscake in the wet mill. stream of secondary air. on measures to reduce the variable costs, and the more that should be spent on investments Fish meal production line Fish meal is a kind of nutritious materials can be further processed for making animal feed, such as cat and dog food, For the fish meal or fish oil production line, we can provide both the whole fishmeal production line for mass production and the integrated type of.
