  • What machine is used in dry granulation?

The main equipment used for dry powder fertilizer granulating is double roller extrusion granulator and flat die extrusion granulator. As their names suggested, they turn fertilizer material into pellets mainly by extruding. So the granulation process needn’t use any additives, raw materials are directly extruded into balls. Then what’s the difference between these two dry powder granulator machines?

1. Double roller granulator

Double roller extrusion granulating machine is the best-sale dry granulation equipment in SX. It can granulate many kinds of fertilizer materials, like sulphur, limestone, organic fertilizer dry powder, etc; the pellets strength can be adjusted freely according to different materials. It’s capacity is about 1-2t/h. It’s truly that the roller granulator is more suitable for small scale compound fertilizer production lines. But if you want a large scale compound fertilizer factory, we can provide you free layout with this machine. Such as one of our customer in Brazil, who wanted to set up a 10t/h extrusion granulator fertilizer line. We made him a free layout of large capacity compound fertilizer line with 6 double roller granulators.

Moreover, choosing our dry roller extrusion granulator, you can make 7 shapes fertilizer pellets with 4-10mm: pillow shape, semicircle shape, stick shape, pill shape, walnut shape, flat ball shape and square bar shape. You just need to tell us which shape you want, and we will customize the roller shape for you.

2. Flat die granulator

The biggest difference between these two dry granulation equipment is the flat die granulator is suitable for making organic fertilizer. For example, you can use it for granulating dry poultry manure, making fertilizer granules from dry animal wastes, etc. In addition, the final organic fertilizer pellets are cylindrical with diameter between 3mm and 8mm. With suitable hardness and compact structure, they are not easy to be affected by water, even in rainy area, the granules produced by our dry flat die organic fertilizer granulator can work well.

As for the capacity of flat dry granulation equipment, the smallest one is SXPM-350 with capacity of 0.5t/h. In mini organic fertilizer producing line, it’s really the most economical dry powder granulator machine for you.

  • How does the machine of dry granulation work?

As dry granulation machine, both of these two fertilizer granulators make fertilizer granules by extruding. But in fact, it’s quite different about their working principle. So how does each dry granulation machine work?

For double roller granulator, the dry powdery fertilizer materials will be extruded into fine hardness pellets by the two roller sheets. Add the materials through feeding hopper, by opposite rollers extruding, the fertilizer materials can be demoulded and pelletized, and then fall into the crushing chamber. At the same time, the crushing chain in the machine separates the granular but adhesive particles. If you want to make granular fertilizer with certain sizes, our engineer can design the ball socket size according to your requirements. By this way, you can get fertilizer balls with the size from 4 to 10 mm.

Without two roller sheets, the flat die granulator makes fertilizer pellets by the extrusion between roller sheet and granulating mold. Fertilizer materials can be make into long cylindrical pellets. Cut by shearing knives inner the granulator, you can get ideal organic fertilizer granules. More importantly, choosing this granulator, you can also get spherical fertilizer granules. After granulating, you can use a polishing machine. The polishing machine is used for making fertilizer granules more uniform and rounder. It also can make the cylindrical fertilizers into round balls. By this way, the cost of making fertilizer balls is much lower than other granulator.

  • Why dry granulation is favoured to make fertilizer pellets?

More choices in granular sizes:

Wet granulation equipment always make fertilizer into balls. But dry granulation equipment can turn fertilizer into many specific shapes. That will give customer more choices. And the diameter of granules can also be set in advance. Because of the extruding way of dry granulation, your powder material can be granulated without binder. It will avoid clumping during granulation and greatly improve the granulating rate.

More Safety and efficient in granulating process:

No binders added to the granular materials. It can make the granulator work more efficiently and continuously/ in a long time. Meanwhile, it also ensures the pure quality of the granular fertilizer. Working in a no binder added environment, the operator can run it more safety.

Simplify the granulating process:

The fertilizer pellets produced by dry granulation method needn’t to be dried or cooled, that will greatly simplify the granulating process, save you a lot of production cost and bring you wonderful income.

  • How to choose a professional dry type granulator factory?

At first, pay attention to the qualification and scale of the factory.

It’s obvious that the longer the factory is established and the large the scale is, the more worth it is worth knowing and choosing. Since the foundation of ShunXin Machinery in 2005, with 15-year business qualification, we have been the leader in Chinese fertilizer equipment factory for a long time.

Secondly, the design of dry granulation machine.

Dry granulator designed with great technology would have higher quality and makes more profits for you. According to the dry granulation principle, we designed our double roller dry granulator with advanced technology. Shorten the granulating time, improve the granulating rate and ensure the high quality of fertilizer pellets. The materials of which the machine is made are mainly medium carbon steel plate and channel steel. The high hardness of them makes the granulator more wearproof. That will prolong the working life of the machine and reduce your maintenance cost.
