In recent years, more and more chicken farm owners want to manage the chicken litter into organic fertilizers. As chicken litter has high organic nutritions and is the great fertilizer to promote plant growth. But how to make high quality chicken manure pellets and what machines can you choose? As a professional fertilizer equipment manufacturer, ShunXin will provide you the following solutions in chicken litter pelleting.
Why chicken manure pellets are better than regular chicken manure?
Chicken dung is the most nutritious manure of all animal waste. Chicken can not digest feed well because of the short intestines, so the chicken manure nutrient content is between 40% and 70%. But it’s very harmful to the soil and plants if you fertilize plants with chicken manure directly without disposal: if you apply chicken manure directly to the soil, the chicken waste will ferment naturally under the right conditions and release a lot of heat, causing the roots of plants destroyed. What’s more, the chicken manure contains a lot of germs and may cause plant disease.
But now more and more people choose chicken dung fertilizer pellets for their crops. Compared with regular chicken manure, granular chicken feces have higher purity of nutrition, the fertilizer effect lasts much longer. Before granulating, the chicken manure has been composted by compost turners in advance. After composting and pelletizing, pathogens in chicken manure can be efficiently killed, so you don’t need to worry the fertilizer will destroy the plant. The most convenient thing about chicken manure, compared to regular chicken waste, is that the pellets can be packed in separate bags with fertilizer packing machine, that will make the storage and transportation of chicken manure fertilizer more easily.
What machine can be used for chicken manure granulating in ShunXin?
New type chicken manure granulator
New type chicken manure granulator is also called stirring tooth granulator. As its name suggested, it granulates chicken waste by the high speed rotating mechanical stirring force. The raw material mixed evenly, gradually granulated, spheroidized and densified with the rotating of stirring teeth. By adjusting the speed of the rotor, the diameter of chicken manure pellets can be 3-5mm. Inside the drum, we use special rubber lining or acid-proof stainless steel lining to prevent fertilizer from sticking to the inner wall.
Rotary drum chicken feces granulator
Be known as two-in-one granulating machine, this kind of granulator is the combination of rotary drum granulator and stirring tooth granulator. It also uses both the two granulation ways: the drum and inner stirring teeth rotating continuously at the same time, chicken waste raw material rolling in the drum with a high speed and turning into pellets more quickly than other chicken dung granulating machine.
Compared with new type chicken manure granulator, this type of granulator has higher granulating rate, operate more smoothly, energy consumption lower, and have lager capacity, the finished pellets are more uniform in size and their structure is more compact.
Disk granulator for pelletize chicken litter
Disk granulator is an open granulation machine. Unlike drum granulators make granules inside the drum, the disc granulator makes granules in an open pan. So you can observe the chicken litter granulation process intuitively and if something happens to the granulation, such as the chicken manure is too dry, you can add proper amount of water or adhesive to continue granulating. And for your convenience, we equip the disk granulator with spray system. When the materials are too dry, the spray syatem can smartly add water to the raw materials, that will greatly improve the granulating efficiency.
Chicken manure flat die granulator
This machine is very suitable for small scale chicken waste granulation. Because of extruding granulation, it requires the moisture of chicken under 10%, and the most suitable value is 5%. So the dewatering process before granulation is very important. But after granulating, you needn’t to dry the chicken dung pellets, that will save you the cost of drying machine. Using this granulator can greatly simplify your chicken manure fertilizer production process. And the pellets are columnar with optional diameter in the range of 4-8mm.
Except for granulating chicken manure pellets, what else can these granulators be used for?
The above chicken manure granulators can make your chicken waste into your ideal granules efficiently. Otherwise, these granulators have strong adaptability to different raw materials. They can used for granulating organic fertilizer, such as pig manure, cow dung, horse waste, all kinds of poultry manure and livestock waste. Furthermore, they can meet your need of compound fertilizer granulating. For example, the granulation of limestone, sulphur, npk fertilizer, and so on. Whether you want to make organic fertilizer or compound fertilizer, you can find your ideal granulator from them.
Chicken waste pelleting technology.
Wet granulation method
Fertilizer raw materials with moisture content in the range of 20%-40% are suitable for wet granulation. Chicken manure with this range of moisture can be granulated and shaped easily. But to keep the chicken manure pellets longer, they need to be dried after granulation. The corresponding wet granulation equipment are new type wet granulation machine, rotary drum granulator, rotary drum churning granulator, and disk pelletizer. Their granulating rates almost are higher than 95%, they are really excellent in granulating organic fertilizer besides chicken manure.
Dry granulation method
Dry granulation is suitable for granulating fertilizer with 5%-10% moisture content. There are two granulators for pelleting dry chicken manure: double roller granulating machine and flat die granulator. After disposing chicken manure to suitable moisture, they could be fed in the granulator and be extruded into pellets of predetermined size. Granules produced by these granulators can be packed without drying process. So if your chicken manure has been dried to the suitable moisture content, dry granulation equipment will be your best choice.
How to make chicken manure pellets?
Fresh chicken manure contains about 75% water. So you need to dry the chicken dung into suitable moisture for different granulation method. After then, to kill pathogens in chicken manure, it’s very necessary to compost the chicken manure. This step is very important for granulating chicken manure. It not only can make chicken manure granulation process more efficient, but also can improve the purity of chicken dung fertilizer, even improve the nutrient content to 100%.
After composting, according to the moisture and the quantity of chicken manure, you can choose the suitable granulator for turning them into pellets. And if you choose wet granulation equipment, don’t forget drying the final pellets. If you choose dry granulation equipment, you just need to dry the raw chicken manure before producing.
