The number of tanks influences the number of outlets of the feeder. Normally the number of outlets respects the number of tanks or cages. This way your feeding quantity (dose) can be modified individually for each tank.
Minimum quantity per tank and day (in Kg)
The minimum amount of feed that is required to deliver to tank in a day helps to size the components of a feeder.
Maximum amount per tank and day (in Kg)
The maximum amount of feed that is required to deliver to tank in a day helps to size the components of a feeder.
How many hours a day fish have to eat?
This information, in combination with other data, helps to define the number of feeders that will be necessary to meet the feeding requirements.
How many times fish have to be fed per day?
Information that allows us to estimate the maximum number of doses to distribute in a day.
Number of Silos
Normally each feeder should have at least the same quantity of silos as the number of different feed pellets. The size of each silo will be calculated by FFF (based on feeding data provided above).
Pellet size 1 (in mm)
The variety of pellets helps to define how many automated feeding systems are necessary.
Maximum distance (in m)
Based on this information we calculate the time that the feed will need to travel from the feeder location to the last tank and so know the dose limit that can be supplied per day.
Annual production (in kg)
This information helps to know the maximum volume of fish production and to reflect the feed demand when designing the automated systems.
Indicating the type of fish or shrimp species allows to estimate basic feeding data.
Stage of growth
This information helps to better understand the feeding requirements of the fish farm.
The type of species of fresh or saltwater provides data to define the material from which the automated feeding system is manufactured.
