How do we design a high quality rotary drum granulator?

The granulating drum is made of threaded pipe in one time without too many small accessories. It can reduce lots of maintenance costs. The simple and practical structure with excellent corrosion and abrasion resistance and is not easy to be deformed and broken, so that the granulator can serve you for a long time.

high thickness and hardness steel used for our rotary drum granulator

Inside the drum, we use a special rubber lining or acid-proof stainless steel lining. Compared to the traditional scraper device used in other machinery company, our drum granulator can realize automatically remove scar on the inner wall of the drum. Efficiently reduces the paste and corrosion of drum inner wall by fertilizer. It also saves the labor needed in cleaning.
The other is our machine bracket. Because of the huge appearance and large weight of drum granulator, the bracket must be durable and in high hardness. So we weld medium carbon steel plates and channels to ensure their high quality. And it has passed strict quality control and special process requirements. At last, all parts are combined together and formed the excellent granulator.

How does this granulating machine make granules?

Our rotating drum granulator mainly consists of a motor, a belt pulley, reduction gears, big gear ring and a drum. When the granulator begins granulating, the main motor drives the belt pulley, which are driven to the driving shaft by the reduction gears, and works in opposite direction with the big gear ring. Then the raw fertilizer will be added into the drum from feed port.

Through a certain amount of water or steam, the base fertilizer is fully reacted in chemical way after being wet in the drum body; then through the special structure inside the drum granulator, the raw material is made into pellets, and finally flows out through the outlet. To dispose the return materials, we have screening machine to screen them out and return them into the rotary drum granulator again. By this way, the fertilizer materials utilization rate greatly improves.

How to maintain the rotating drum granulator when it’s not in use?

To make sure the granulator has stable efficiency and longer working life, the cleaning and maintenance is very important when it’s not in use. So how to maintain the machine correctly and economically? As an experienced equipment supplier, we will give you some helpful suggestions.

1. Cleaning the inner wall after granulating

If your fertilizer materials have high stickiness or corrosiveness, they are very easy to stick to the inner wall and even cause damage. To help you clean the sticking fertilizer materials easily, we designed cleaning holes on the drum surface. You can use a hammer to knock the exposed lining wall through the holes. The fertilizer will fall down with the lining wall vibration. We can also equip the equipment with automatic hammers, that will save you lots of time and energy.

2. Daily maintenance of machine parts

The basis of maintaining fertilizer granulator is to make sure the working environment is clean and dry, without strong acid and corrosive substance. That will greatly reduce the damage from water, dust and corrosion. If the machine can’t work for a long time, you need to oil the important working parts (bearings, motor, gearing, etc) regularly to prevent rust.

3. Check the machine condition before use

Before using the granulator, it’s very necessary to check important parts of the machine. Only make sure that all parts are normal can the machine start to work. If there is something wrong before or during working, the operator needs to stop the granulator to find out causes and maintain the machine timely.

    What causes high temperature of rotary granulator bearing?2020-12-01T17:16:10+08:00

    Rotary drum granulator is an important machine in compound fertilizer making factories, which is used for large scale fertilizer materials granulating. Besides compound fertilizer granulating, it also can be used for organic fertilizer manufacturing line. But we learned some customers found the problem of high temperature of the gearing. That may affect the performance of the whole machine. So what are the reasons? And how to solve this problem?

    Bearing Circle of Rotary Drum Granulator

    At first, the lubricating oil is insufficient. The lack of lubricating oil will lead to the increase of friction between bearing and the machine, which will cause excessive temperature. So adding enough lubricating oil before using the granulator is very important.

    Secondly, if the lubricating oil is not clean, the bearing will be affected by dust. With the increasing dust, the gearing becomes rough. So the temperature of the gearing will rise continuously and burn down. If the fertilizer making environment is nor clean, this problem will be more serious. So the cleaning of the bearing and factory environment is very important.

    Thirdly is the damage caused by long-term use. If the granulator is used for a long time, the parts may be aged, and the damage is inevitable. So when the parts are damaged, it’s better to replace them in time. That not only can prolong the granulator working life, but also can make sure the high performance to bring you wonderful profits.

    The last reason may be unreasonable installation. Under normal conditions, the bearing is on the center line of the granulator. If you install the machine by mistake, the bearing temperature rising is obviously. To help you make fertilizer efficiently, we can provide you free installation guidance. If the problem can’t be solved, we can also arrange our technician to your site.

      Rotary Drum Granulator Fertilizer Making Plan2020-12-01T17:21:21+08:00

      Rotary drum granulator is the most typical large scale wet granulating machine. So the fertilizer producing factories with rotary granulator always has excellent capacity. If you want to build a large scale fertilizer making factory, the drum granulator fertilizer producing plant is really suitable.

      This kind of fertilizer making process not only can be used for making organic fertilizers, but also is suitable for compound fertilizer manufacturing. For making organic fertilizer granules, the whole plant consists of manure dewatering machine, large size composting machine, rotary pelletizer, fertilizer drying equipment and granules packing machine.

      compound fertilizer producing factory

      As for rotary drum granulator compound fertilizer factory, you don’t need to buy the composting machine. But the crushing equipment may be helpful. It can crush the raw materials into small particles, which makes the granulating process more smooth.

      All the machines in our rotary granulator fertilizer making plant is made by high performance parts and hard metal materials. Low cost on maintaining makes the whole plant more efficient and bring you higher economical profits. By wet granulating method, the final fertilizer granules have round performance and fine structure.

If you don’t know how to make reasonable layout, we can provide you free layout and installing guidance.

        Characteristics of Rotating Drum Granulating Machine2020-12-01T17:24:04+08:00

        As an efficient organic fertilizer granulating machine, the pelletizing rate of rotating drum granulator can reach 90%, and the it’s easy to operate and maintain. The specific advantages are as follows:
        1. Increase the material temperature during the operation of the drum granulator, so that the moisture content of the material after pelletizing is low and the drying efficiency is improved.
        2. The drum granulator is lined with rubber engineering plastics, so the raw materials are not easy to stick to the cylinder, and have the function of anti-corrosion and heat preservation.
        3. Ultra high molecular weight polyethylene is used to build the inner lining of granulator equipment, which eliminates the phenomenon of material sticking to the wall and reduces the labor intensity of workers.
        4. The drum granulator has large capacity, low power consumption, low maintenance cost and long service life.

        ShunXin rotary drum granulating machine has great efficiency and quality, choosing it, you will make fertilizer much easier.
