Top 5 Things You Must to Know about Disc Pelletizer
When you want to get more profits from manure, turning them into granular fertilizer is necessary. If your farm’s scale is not too large, disc pelletizer is the best choice for you. For one thing, it can produce 1-6 t/h pellets with 93% granulation rate. For another, compound fertilizer production can also use pan granulation and it is beneficial for these granules storage and transportation.
But if you want to adjust the size of pellets in the process of making fertilizer, can you still use the disc granulator? Of course, SX can provide you with professional disc pelletizer. However, is it suitable for you to make large capacity granules? For this, you need to learn more about this pan granulator. So we especially summarize the top 5 thing commonly inquired about disc pelletizer from our customers feedback as follows:
Q 1: What is the Moisture Content of Raw Material When Granulating?
Generally, before granulating, you need to make sure the raw material moisture content about 30%. When granulating, the moisture of materials must increase to 45%-50%. After granulating, you should reduce the moisture below 25% to convenient for transportation and storage.
Can the moisture content of granules below 10% after pan granulation?
Of course. You can use SX granulate dryer to reduce granules moisture content below 10%.

Q 2: What is the Finish Compost Granules Size in Disc Pelletizer?
1-8mm. If you want to produce 1-5mm, SX can also meet your requirements. But how to control the granules size in pan granulator? There are two ways for your choice.
By Control the Moisture
SX installs a spray device when producing the disc granulator. You can control the water spray system to control the raw material moisture.
Less water, smaller size;
much water, bigger size.
By Control the Pan Slope Angle
SX the angle of disc can be adjusted. You can regulate the pan slop angle to regulate the final granules size.
Sharp slope, smaller size;
slow slope, bigger granules.
Q 3: What is the Capacity of a Single Disc Granulator?
0.8-6 t/h. Moreover, in order to provide you more suitable pan granulator, we design different models of disc pelletizer machines according to capacity.(technology details are as follows)
Rotary Speed (r/min)
Motor Power (kw)
Diameter of Disc (mm)
Q 4: Can the granulator be of closed pan type instead of the open pan type as we feel that the closed type design has a better control on the granule quality & also controls the dust generation？
SX can design for you to cover part of the disc granulator with iron sheet. But it can’t be covered completely, because it can’t feed into this machine.
Q 5: How to Upgrade the Disc Granulator System to Produce Better Fertilizer?
If you want to upgrade your disc granulation system or produce better fertilizer pellets, you can choose to establish a disc granulation line.
Before pan pelletizer, you can use dewatering machine, compost equipment, crusher, mixer to make raw materials more suitable for fertilizer granules manufacturing. After disc granulation, you can choose screener, dryer, cooler, coating machine, packaging scale to further improve the purity and quality of granular fertilizer you prepare.
If you are still hesitant about disc granulation line setup, you can tell us your conditions. Such as material, budget, factory area, expectant capacity, equipment you need, etc. We can design fertilizer granulation line design according to your requirements.
