Importance of Grain Recovery from Gunny and HDPE Bags

Every Little Bit Counts!
In a feed mill process, raw material covers approx. 85 % of the total cost of feed production. In current scenario with high competition, less margins, scarcity of raw material, high cost of grains, we must aim to produce the feed at minimum prices and saving in raw material from gunny and HDPE bags not only saves the raw material wastage but also the clean gunny bags are sold at higher prices in market.

For recovery of grains and fibrous ingredients from bags, we specially designed a highly efficient BAG CLEANING MACHINE;  other machines available in the market only support Gunny Bags; but this design best suitable for both Gunny and HDPE Bags; for all grains and fibrous material. even maize too.

1. Considering a feed mill producing 150 MT / Day using 55 % maize and 10 % fibrous material. ( considering gunny bag only)
150 X 55 %  = 82.5 x1000 = 82500 kgs / 50 = 1650 bags , assuming average 70 grams( 50 to 120 grams )  recovery per bag , total recovery per day  = 115 kgs @ 18 rs = 2070 rs

2. For 10 % fibrous material = 300 bags @ 70 grams average recovery @ 15 rs = 315 rs

Total recovery = 2385 rs

Operational & labour cost for approx. 2000 bags
1. Machine capacity = considering 250 bags per hour ( maximum 300 -320 bags) For 2000 bags = 8 hours
2. Power consumption is around 1 unit for 100 bags ; for 2000 bags = 20 units @ 8 rs / unit = 160 rs
3. Labour , 1 person @ 500 rs
4. Total operating cost per day @ 2000 bags = 660 rs
5. If we consider 700 rs considering depreciation & maintenance = net benefit = 1685 / day
6. 0.20 rs / gunny bag benefit ( increased value of gunny bag after cleaning = 2000 = 400 rs a day
7. Total benefit / day =2085 rs / day
8. Considering a 70 % average throughout the year @ 300 days
9. 300 x 2085 x 70 % = approx. 4,35,000 rs
10. Cost of machine = 1,35,000
