Reasonable ratio of raw materials is the basis to improve the ball formation rate

Single chemical fertilizer can not meet the needs of various nutrients of plants. NPK fertilizer production line mixes and granulates different nutrients to improve fertilizer efficiency. So how to improve the pelletizing rate of fertilizer?

1. Reasonable match of fineness of raw materials. According to our experience, the fineness of the whole raw material should be matched as follows: about 30% - 40% of the raw materials with 100-60 mesh, about 35% of the raw materials with 60 mesh to 1.00mm diameter, and about 25% - 30% of the small particles with 1.00-2.00mm diameter. The higher the fineness of the material, the better the viscosity, and the higher the surface finish of the granulated particles. However, in the production process, the proportion of high fineness materials is too high, and it is easy to cause the bad problems such as too large particles, irregular particles and material wall sticking due to the good viscosity.

2. The reasonable collocation of cohesive material and dispersive material. In the production process formula, the proportion of viscous raw materials is high, the organic fertilizer granulator is easy to form balls, the proportion of dispersive raw materials is high, and there are more fine powders. In the conventional formula, the proportion of low concentration compound fertilizer viscosity raw material is 45% - 50%, and the proportion of high concentration compound fertilizer viscosity raw material is 35% - 40%. At the same time, it should be combined with material fineness. With bad matching, there will be no fine powder, no particles, particles are not round, easy to get big balls and other problems in the production process.

3. The chemical reaction between materials should be considered when formulating. After the formulation of some materials, free water will be precipitated during the production process, which will cause the liquid phase of the material to exceed the standard and cannot be produced normally. After matching, some raw materials will greatly reduce the critical relative humidity of the mixture. During the production process, due to the large amount of moisture absorption Unable to produce normally. Therefore, the chemical reaction between the materials must be considered when formulating to achieve a reasonable match between the materials.

4. Comprehensive water content of the material after mixing. The water content of the raw materials directly affects the pelletizing effect of the disc granulator machine. Some materials are stirred into mud without steam and water in the production, resulting in the failure of normal production. Therefore, keeping a low water content of the material is conducive to the addition of steam in the granulation, to the improvement of the temperature and viscosity of the material, so as to improve the compatibility between the materials and the balling rate.
