Because of the rising demand for zeolite pellets and it has the ability to increase the ammonia retention capacity of the soil, more and more projects invest in making zeolite granules. For example, on 27th June 2023, a customer from the USA inquired about how to setup a 6t/h zeolite granules production line. This client told us “…complete line- from receiving raw materials zeolite rocks from the factory up to packing the powder fertilizer for zeolite rocks to produce zeolite pellets. With capacity 6 t/h … send me the layout , quotation…” The follow are the specific details of communication in this case.
What Equipment is Needed in a Complete Zeolite Granules Production Line?
This American customer wanted to buy a complete zeolite pellets processing line- from zeolite rocks collection to granules packaging with capacity 6 tons per hour. Then during the subsequent communications, he asked us what equipment is needed in a complete zeolite granules production line in details? In general, it contains the following machines:
Load Type Feeder
You need to transport zeolite rocks into load type feeder. It can filter grass and other waste from rocks and feed them into fertilizer product making system.
Raymond Mill System and Crusher
Do you want to granulate zeolite rocks easier? Do you hope to produce zeolite granules with a smooth surface? Crushing machine is indispensable. It can grind rocks into coarse powder and Raymond mill system can crush coarse powder into fine powder. The finer the powder, the better the granulation effect.
After crushing, there are still some small stones in zeolite powder. At that time, in order to improve the purity of your zeolite granules, it is wise to separate waste from fine powder. Here, powder screener can help you a lot.
In general, besides zeolite powder, we also need to add 4%-6% starch slurry to help agglutinate powder. But adding to zeolite powder directly cannot make them play their roles. You need to mix with zeolite powder evenly.
Rotary Drum Granulator
Then it is time to process zeolite powder into granules. This makes your zeolite granules more convenient for transport, storage and use. For this process, the USA customers were more interested in rotary drum granulation. Because it has characteristics og high erosion resistance, easy operation and low consumption. And for 6t/h granulation, we also can provide you with disc granulator and double roller pelletizer.
Besides powder, after granulation, it is also essential to separate zeolite granules with required size from others. We can offer you professional fertilizer granule screening equipment.
Dryer and Cooler
Because this zeolite granules manufacturing line employs wet granulation method. In this way, the moisture content of zeolite pellets is 35%-50%, which is higher than that of international requirement. So you need to use dryer to remove excessive water. After drying, the temperature of fertilizer particle is 30℃-40℃. This is not beneficial for zeolite granules storage. So we design cooler to reduce the temperature to a proper level.
In the process of zeolite pellets making, there is an item you also must focus on. It is gas waste disposal. Dust collector and dust fall room are designed to make zeolite granules in an environmentally friendly way.
Finally, you can package finished zeolite fertilizer into 25 kg or 50kg according to your needs. Our automatic bagging equipment can help you finish fertilizer packing in a short time.
What is the Design of a 6T/H Zeolite Granules Production Line?
When you want to setup a zeolite pellets plant, factory area are also two aspects you must consider. Usually, the whole zeolite pellets manufacturing area is divided into three parts:
As the name suggests this is an area for zeolite rocks crushing. And in generally, it will vary with capacity. The larger the capacity, the larger the crushing area. For example, the customers from the USA wanted to use Ray mill system and crusher to prepare an area of 15*10m.
This area is designed for installation of equipment from granulation to packaging. For 6t/h zeolite granules manufacturing, it needs about 80*38m .
Besides the above two areas, you also need to prepare a place for finished zeolite pellets storage. However, this only needs a small area.
How Much Does it Cost to Setup a 6T/H Zeolite Granules Production Line in USA?
6T/H Zeolite Granules Production Line Cost
Finally, the client from the United States inquired about the quotation of the zeolite granules production line with a capacity of 6 t/h . Because of quality ferilizer equipment use, the price of it is $134,709 – $ 213,310. Can I set up a 6 t/h zeolite pellets plant in USA at a lower cost? The answer is yes. You can replace the rotary drum granulator with 2 sets of double roller press granulator. It has a capacity of 1-3 t/h, which you can fully meet your requirement of producing 6 tons of zeolite fertilizer from zeolite rocks per hour. And it has a more economical price.
