Well, “A stich in time saves nine”. Maintenance is an important part of feed mill management. The main purpose of regular maintenance is to ensure that all equipment required for production is operating at 100 % efficiency at all times. It must be a part of the daily schedule.

As we all know, livestock needs feed on a daily basis and there is no space for unwanted breakdowns in feed mills. Every feed miller must be aware of the importance of preventive maintenance. For this, we developed special checklists & formats in different languages.

Few check-points for machinery are:

1. Intake Chain

  • Checking of Motor, Gear Box and Chain
  • Abnormal Sound
  • Check Drag Chain Slackness
  • Greasing of Bearings
  • Checking of PVC Scrapers
2. Jute Remover
  • Rotor Change
  • Greasing
3. Elevators
  • Check Tension in Belts
  • Belts Alignment
  • Cleaning the Boot of Elevator
  • Cleaning Top end of Elevator
  • Tightening of Bucket Bolts, Joints
  • Greasing of Bearings
4. Magnet
  • Cleaning after every 4 hours
5. Hammer Mill
  • Check Hammer Edges
  • Screen Conditions
  • Vibration
  • Abnormal Noise
  • Grinding Texture
6. Pellet Mill
  • Check wearing condition of dies & rolls
  • Greasing of bearings
  • Check for any vibration & noise
  • Check the position of cutting knives & deflectors.
  • Check the gap between die & rolls.
7. Crumbler
