Advantages and disadvantages of Rotary drum granulator

Rotary drum granulator Introduction:

Drum granulator is a molding machine that can make materials into specific shapes. Drum granulator is one of the key equipment in the compound fertilizer industry, suitable for cold and hot granulation and large-scale production of high, medium and low concentration compound fertilizers. The main working method is granulation wet granulation. Through a certain amount of water or steam, the basic fertilizer is fully chemically reacted after the humidity is adjusted in the cylinder. Under certain liquid phase conditions, the rotation of the cylinder makes the material particles Generate extrusion force to agglomerate into balls.

Rotary drum granulator working principle:

The working principle of this series drum granulator is: the belt and pulley are driven by the main motor, and are transmitted to the driving shaft through the reducer, and the split gear installed on the driving shaft is connected with the large gear ring fixed on the machine body. Together, work opposite each other. The material is fed from the feed end and passes through the inside of the cylinder. Through the function of the special structure inside the cylinder, it is made into granules, and finally flows out through the discharge port. Due to the continuous input of materials and the continuous rotation of the granulator, mass production can be realized.

Structural composition of Rotary drum granulator

The structure of the transfer granulator is relatively simple, and the device is mainly used for highly cohesive, uniform powder granulation materials; drum structure, transmission device.

Performance characteristics of Rotary drum granulator

1. Share transfer granulator includes production management capacity: 1.0~20.0t/h

2. Supporting power: 7.5~45.0kw.

3. Large output, low power consumption, low maintenance cost, low noise, and low cost of wearing parts.

4. The transfer granulator requires smaller materials, generally need to pass through a 30 mesh sieve to enable high energy grinding.

5. The ball forming rate is up to 70%, there is a small amount of returned material, and the returned material has a small particle size, which can be re-granulated.

6. In the granulation process, 15% to 20% of water needs to be sprayed into the granulator when the stock is transferred to the granulator, so the finished product must be dried, so that the drying energy is relatively large.

7. Steam heating is applied to increase the temperature of the material, so that the water content of the material is low after the ball is formed, and the drying efficiency is improved;

8. Use rubber engineering plastics as the inner lining, the raw materials are not easy to stick to the cylinder, and play the role of anti-corrosion and heat preservation;

Advantages of Rotary drum granulator in compound fertilizer production line

1. It saves the cost of granulation, packaging, and transportation of urea concentrate, and also saves troublesome operations such as crushing, solid material measurement, and transportation when making compound fertilizer from solid urea.

2. When the urea solution directly participates in the granulation, the granulation temperature of the granulation material in the compound fertilizer production line can be increased from about 40°C to about 60°C, and the granulation moisture can be reduced from 5% to 2.5%, which greatly reduces the drying load.

3. Use the viscosity of urea solution to help the material granulate in the granulator, improve the granulation rate of the material, increase the production capacity by about 30%, and reduce the power consumption by 30%.

4. The particle strength of compound fertilizer equipment products is increased from the original 12N to 30N, the water content of the finished product is reduced from 2.0% to 1.00%, the appearance of the particles is improved, and the agglomeration can be slowed down.

Disadvantages of Rotary drum granulator in compound fertilizer production line

1. There are many anti-materials;

2. Large dust;

3. Large power consumption;

4. The particles are not smooth and round enough;

5. The operating environment of the compound fertilizer production line is not very good.
