Title : Optimization of structural and technological parameters of a fermentor for feed heating
Key words : regression model; heating; fermentor; factor; experiment
Summary :

The basis for obtaining high performance in cattle breeding is correct feeding. Production of a wholesome ration is labour consuming and expensive. Thus, work related to searching for alternative methods of production of wholesome feed is carried out. Synthesis of low value raw material, as a result of which high protein content feed is produced, is one of the methods. A fermentation process takes place in conditions, which cannot be ensured by presently used machines and aggregates. A fermentor, which enables obtaining feed with high content of protein from low value raw material at minimum expenditures, was developed. One of the conditions of correct course of synthesis is ensuring appropriate temperature of feed, where micro-organism develop. The objective of the paper is to determine optimal values of factors which affect energy consumption during feed heating. The result was to obtain the regression model which is characteristic for unit changes of energy consumption during feed heating, with the use of which, an optimal angle of embracing the container with a heating belt (159°) and the level of filling the container with feed (100%) were determined. Minimal value of optimization criterion at such values of indexes is 5.14 kJ·(kg·°C) -1.
