2 Projects for making dry and wet limestone pellets

In general, most limestone pellets manufacturers prefer to prepare granules into two forms. Wet and dry. So in order to meet the different requirements of our customers, we especially design wet limestone pellets making line and dry limestone granules production line separately.

Wet limestone pellets making line design

When you want to further process limestone, you can choose to turn powder limestone into granules. Then because of more complicated process, it needs more limestone pellets making machines. Generally, a complete wet limestone pellets preparation line contains crusher, Raymond mill, batching machine, mixer, granulator, screening equipment, dryer, cooler, coating machine, packaging machine, belt conveyor, dust collector. You can choose them to design your own plan for limestone pellets granulating production line according to your needs.

They can fully meet your needs, whether you have a small or large budget for limestone granules making plant setup.

$102,311-$213,310 Limestone pellets making system

When you plan to invest $102,311-$213,310 in your small scale limestone granules production plant setup as cost, we recommend you to buy our pan fertilizer pellets making line. Generally, it consists of Raymond mill, batching machine, mixer, pan pellet making equipment, screener, rotary dryer, rotary cooler, automatic bagging machine and belt conveyor. This limestone pellets granulating production line mainly adopts wet granulation method. It makes use of liquid as binder to turn limestone powder into granules. So limestone powder can combine with each other easier and you can produce higher quality limestone pellets. Moreover, in general pan pellets making line can prepare 1- 6 tons of limestone particles per hour. This can fully meet your requirements for small quantities limestone pellets manufacturing plant setup.

Preferred Dry Granulation for Turning Limestone Into Pellets

To turn limestone into pellets, you can use dry granulation method or wet granulation method. They both can granulate pellets efficiently. Many fertilizer manufacturers prefers the dry granulation method to make pellets, and here are the main reasons:

limestone granulation line raw materials

Firstly, the roller compactor adopts dry granulation. Dry granulation is different from wet granulation. There is no need to put adhesive into the materials, or increase the moisture content. It granulates under the normal temperature. The raw materials’ moisture is 5-10%. In this way, there is also no need for drying the formed granules, which cuts a lot of cost in your production. Besides, as the friction coefficient between the materials and the rollers is small, the energy cost is also much lower.

What’s more, this technology reduces the granulation cost compared with other granulators. And the production is relatively easy without adding any additives. It can not only keep the calcium oxide content and activity unchanged after granulating the active lime powder, but also maintain a certain mechanical strength of the active lime, so that the material is fully purpose of use.

Therefore, you can use our double roller granulating machine to make high quality and functional limestone pellets with dry technology. There are different models and types of it in our factory, you can choose the one which is the most suitable to your taste.

How Does the Whole Limestone Granules Production Line Work?

limestone fertilizer pellets granulating machine

A limestone pellet granulation line is a process of convert limestone powder into small pellets. The process involves several steps, including grinding the limestone into a fine powder, mixing it with a blender, and then pressing it into small pellets using a pelletizer.

  • The first step in the process is to grind the limestone into a fine powder. This is typically using our hot sale new type vertical crusher to do it.

  • The powder is then mixed with a blender, such as disc mixer etc., which can help to hold the pellets together and provides additional benefits such as increased strength and water resistance.

  • Once the limestone and binder mixes together, the next step is to form the pellets. You can add limestone materials from the feed hopper, and then double roller press granulator rollers extrude pellets and release them from the mold.

  • Lastly, as the granulating machine makes limestone pellets with dry granulation method, there is no need to dry and cool to low down the moisture. Therefore, the pellets can send to package by out single(double) bucket automatic packaging machine and storage for commercial.

Overall, the limestone pellet granulation process can be a highly efficient way to produce high-quality pellets, which can apply in different fields.

Where Need A Production Line of Making Limestone Granules?

As we mentioned earlier, limestone is one important material for the production and development, it has wide application in industry, building, food, and agriculture etc. Therefore, our limestone granules production line also has a wide application in these fields to make contributions. Here we take two examples for references.

Therefore, limestone granules production line has many usages and can create huge economic values for you.
