CPM Unveils World’s Largest Ring-Die Pellet Mill

January 28, 2014

CPM, a leading supplier of process equipment and technology for the animal feed, oilseed, biofuels, and human food-processing industries, debuts the world’s largest ring-die pellet mill today at the 2014 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.
 
The CPM Model 9950-14 is almost 40 percent larger than any other CPM pellet mill, with a 2198-sq-in. die.
 
“The market demanded a pellet mill with higher capacity that didn’t sacrifice pellet quality or equipment durability,” said Jim Hughes, general manager of CPM-U.S. “In creating the 9950-14, we were able to maintain CPM’s traditional two-roll design for maximum efficiency and service life.”
 
High-capacity operations such as swine and turkey feed mills will benefit from the new pellet mill’s size and output efficiency. Its single-reduction, one-piece, cast-iron gearbox is designed to be directly coupled to a wide variety of commercially available motors, up to 800 hp.
 
Available with popular options such as CPM’s lineator remote roll adjustment and roll speed measurement, the new pellet mill offers features that increase energy and cost efficiency, while mass-producing higher-quality pellets. CPM anticipates the Model 9950-14 will be available for deliveries in fall 2014.
 
“We’re very excited about the impact this new pellet mill can have upon larger feed mill operations,” Hughes said. “Its capacity and durability mean many owners can essentially replace two pellet mills with one. The savings can be significant.”
