Retention Time Barrel

After the homogeneous mixing of steam in a conditioner  the product remains, during a preset length of time, in this heated and insulated retention time barrel. After the retention time barrel the product can be further treated in a pellet mill, extruder or meal cooler. The thermal treatment of the product results in an easier operation in the pellet mill, which simultaneously results in an improved pellet quality.

  • Up to 15% increase of pelleting capacity, due to higher temperature and improved absorption of steam
  • Product is kept at required temperature
  • Minimal formation of condensation
