When it comes to choosing a chicken manure fertilizer granulator, there are several things you need to consider. Some of these include the thickness, shape, and size of the materials that you’ll need to cut. Additionally, you’ll also need to think about the number of materials that need to be processed. Read on as we dive into some tips on how you can select a granulator to process your chicken manure.
One main part of the granulator is the cutting chamber. These range from either conventional, tangential, or the straight-drop variant. The tangential design positions the rotor so that the feedstock can move downward which is one of the most effective ways to process thin-walled or bulky material. The straight-drop on the other hand feeds materials perpendicular and is used for thicker material; however, these can even be customized to suit your raw materials.
Another main part is the type of rotor that comes with your machine. Rotors can be either staggered, solid, closed, open, or even segmented. The open variant ensures that enough air is flowing and it is used for materials that are still warm after they’ve been processed. Solid or closed were built to cut through some of the thickest materials while staggered rotors can cut heavy materials.
Additionally, the number of knife blades also determines the type of granulator that you can purchase. Their sharpness, speed, tip angle, and arrangement impact the final quality of your products. These knives are usually mounted to the rotor or they can be placed on the bed. However, smaller clearances tend to produce more efficient and cleaner cuts if you’re grinding softer materials.
Based on the size of the material that you’re working with, you’ll need to select a screen hole size to suit. If you’re running at slower speeds, thinner screens with smaller holes will produce more uniformly shaped particles. In the case of higher speeds, larger screen holes will be required to successfully reduce fines and vary the particle size range.
As we conclude, we have just looked at some considerations that you’ll need to think about when it comes to purchasing a granulator for processing organic fertilizer pellets. When purchasing a machine, it’s best to think about the final output that produces the highest quality with little to no wastage in time and materials. To maximize your profits, it’s also a great idea to select a granulator that meets your budget at the lowest cost.
With that said, you should still keep in mind that not all granulators on the market are capable of ensuring that your personal goals are met. Both technology and experience did contribute to the continued improvement of granulators in the industry. As such, selecting the best machinery to meet all of your needs takes time if you’re planning to take your business to new heights. Another rule of thumb when purchasing equipment is to never look at the initial cost of your equipment simply because it’s a good investment; it’s better to look at the long-term value that the equipment can provide for you.
