The feather meal production line is mainly for processing various animal feathers into feather meal particles by a series of processes. This new hydrolyzed feather powder machine adopts the hydrolysis method under high temperature, high pressure and strong shear conditions, with advanced process methods and unique equipment. Generally, 10,000kg of feathers can produce 500kg of finished feather powder.
Its outstanding feature is that it completely destroys the spatial structure of feather keratin, thus turning it from food industry waste into high-quality soluble protein feed that can be fully digested and absorbed by livestock and poultry, realizing the transformation of waste into treasure. According to multiple inspections and tests by authoritative departments, its average digestibility and absorption rate can reach more than 75%.
Shuliy new hydrolyzed feather powder machine developed by our company is a new generation product developed based on the advanced technology of Europe and the United States and combined with our company’s more than 20 years of production experience.

Feather meal refers to the non-deteriorated feathers obtained after slaughtering livestock and poultry, such as chicken feathers, goose feathers, duck feathers, pigeon feathers, turkey feathers, etc., processed into animal protein feed through modern technology. Feather meal can be divided into enzymatically hydrolyzed feather meal, hydrolyzed feather meal, and puffed feather meal according to the production method.
Feather meal is a commonly used protein feed material, and its crude protein content is not less than 75%. The amino acid content of glycine, serine, and isoleucine is very high, reaching 6.3%, 9.3%, and 5.3% respectively, which is suitable for compounding with raw materials with insufficient isoleucine content (such as blood meal). In many developed countries, 2% to 3% feather meal is used in all livestock and poultry feeds. Therefore, feather meal is one of the important sources of protein in poultry feed.
The complete set of equipment includes feather water separator, feather water squeezer, feather feeder, belt conveyor loading machine, hydrolysis tank, buffer silo, screw conveyor, steam dryer, rotary cooling screen, crusher, quantitative packaging machine.
It consists of exhaust gas condensation and deodorization system and electric control cabinet.

The feather powder has a uniform texture, looseness and fragrance, good palatability, and fluidity. Feather meal contains about 75%-90% of crude protein, which can make the digestion and absorption rate of protein by animals reach over 85%.
The feed value of feather meal is actually not high, and it is mainly used to supplement the content of thioine in animal feed. However, feather meal has a significant effect on breeding, which is to reduce the phenomenon of anal pecking and feather pecking in chickens and ducks. This is because feather meal is rich in sulfur-containing amino acids.
Feeding feather meals to poultry such as chickens, ducks and other poultry in the spring and autumn molting season is conducive to the growth and development of their down. It should be noted that the amount of feather meal in the poultry diet should not exceed 3% to 5%, and it should be mixed with other protein feeds containing lysine, methionine, and tryptophan. In the feather meal production line, the feathers can be decomposed after pressure and heating treatment, which improves the nutritional value of feather protein and makes feather meal a useful protein resource.
