Technology Description

The goal of the crushing process is to decrease material size before further processing. In the Farmet technology we use powerful hammer mills that are designed for long service life and low operation costs.

Decreasing particle size to optimum is particularly important for smooth operation of the extruder. It also benefits the transformations of nutritional and anti-nutritional substances in the processes of conditioning and extrusion; smaller particles permit a more efficient exchange of heat and moisture, which ensures that the feed components are properly processed and “cooked”. Proper crushing of the material thus guarantees optimal transformation of feed components at reasonable running costs.

Technical Parameters

Performance of the technology is always optimized with respect to the customer’s demands in order to maximize its effectiveness.


Farmet offers optional accessories that will satisfy even the most demanding customers. Nonetheless, the most convenient solutions are usually our turnkey deliveries, which are optimized from both the technical and economic perspectives, meet all your requirements and include the automatization of the entire process.
