Seedburo Pellet Durability Tester

Pellet Durability Tester
Enlarge Image

Seedburo's Pellet Durability Tester utilizes a test developed by Kansas State University to predict the amount of fines produced by handling pellets before feeding time. This is accomplished using a specially designed pellet tumbler which duplicates the amount of breakage that normally occurs from the time the pellets are expelled until they are consumed by the animal.  Each chamber measures     12" long x 5-1/2" wide x 12" deep.

The results of the tests are interpreted as a standard measure of quality, which is referred to as the Pellet Durability Index (P.D.I.) The test is simple to perform and requires a minimal amount of equipment. The procedure:

1. Secure a representative sample.
2. Remove broken pellets from sample with appropriate hand sieve.
3. Weigh out 500 grams of screened sample.
4. Tumble 500 grams of screened pellets for 10 minutes.
5. Re-screen and weigh whole pellet sample.
6. Compute Pellet Durability Index by dividing the weight of the whole pellets by 500 and multiplying by 100.

The unit features a 1/6 HP, 115/230V, 50/60Hz, Single Phase, TEFC Motor.
