Each feeder will support the maximum dose size that has been requested from us before its manufacture. This dose size will condition the size of the pipe to be installed, the blower, and the dosing equipment.
Sending extruded or pelletized feed through a pipeline using air can break some pellets. It mainly depends on the type of pellet. In our tests we have detected a maximum breakage rate of around 3% at distances of 400m
It is not possible since the mechanical components of the feeder have been dimensioned according to specific needs defined in advance by the fish farmer, which implies little margin to alter parameters.
Once the feeder is manufactured, the number of outlets cannot be increased, so we recommend taking into account when dimensioning it a potential increase in the number of tanks or cages to be fed, whenever the feeding times allow it.
According to the needs of each client, we can manufacture in stainless steel AISI 304, AISI 316L, galvanized and aluminum. The pontoons and containers are made of steel by the respective manufacturers.
The curves affect negatively the duration of the pipes, since in these the feed particles produce more abrasion when the radius of curvature is smaller. The recommendation is that the curves have the largest possible radius of curvature, never being less than 30D, with D being the outer diameter of the pipe. The use of elbows and curves at 90º is totally excluded
The technology developed and patented by FFF of a matrix-shaped selector allows us, on the same surface, to have more outlets than traditional rotary-shaped selectors. In addition, it allows us to go from one outlet to another much faster and more precisely due to the movement in 2 coordinate axes that allows us to move from left to right, top to bottom and diagonally at the same time.
Depending on the morphology of the tank to be used, we recommend different types of spreaders. On our website https://www.fishfarmfeeder.com/en/feeding-systems/spreaders/ you will find more information and examples
The use of spreaders allows, among other things, an optimal spreading of the feed on the surface of the water, which contributes to a more homogeneous growth of the fish and prevents the feed from being wasted, consequently improving the FCR
Founded in 2008, we manufacture only feeding systems for Aquaculture, feeding all stages of the life of the fish and/or shrimp.
