FEECO has over 50 years of testing experience in their fully equipped laboratory and pilot plant
Green Bay, WI (September 14, 2006)- The FEECO International testing and tolling facility is a state of the art facility consisting of a pilot plant, tolling production plant, and analytical laboratory. The FEECO International Test Laboratory / Pilot Plant provides workable solutions for your fine material problems. Let us show you how we can convert all types of dust, bulk powder material and sludge into free flowing pellets or granules for dust-free handling. And we can show you how to granulate sludges into organic fertilizer.
The pilot plant can be set up for testing on a single piece of equipment or multiple pieces of equipment as a continuous process loop with agglomeration, drying, sizing, and recycling capabilities. We record all the necessary operating data for process scale-up to meet your production requirements.
Our test lab can perform a benefit analysis based on test results and the customers’ product requirements. FEECO lab personnel, working with design engineers, can then recommend the best process and equipment combination for production. Once a workable process and set-up is identified, the FEECO test lab has the equipment available to simulate production conditions, scale the process up to a full-scale production plant and produce end product anywhere from pounds to tons-per-hour. The tolling production plant can be set up to produce quantities in the range of 5 ton to 100 ton.
At FEECO we take pride in providing quick, accurate results on test materials. With over 50 years of testing experience, we’ve built a vast database on a variety of materials and test procedures. We can use our experience to help you make informed process decisions based on actual performance data.
FEECO’s Laboratory and Pilot Plant include the following equipment: 4′ 6″ Disc Pelletizer, 16″ & 24″ Disc Pelletizer, 8″ Batch Pin Mixer, 6″ Continuous Feed Pin Mixer, 2′ x 6′ Rotary Granulator, 36″ Circular Screen, Hammer Mill, Circular Screen, Rod Mill, Virtual Fluid Bed Dryer, 2′ x 20′ Rotary Dryer with recycle loop, 36″ Disc Pelletizer, 14″ x 6′ Paddle Mixer, 15″ Batch Pin Mixer, 10″ Continuous Feed Pin Mixer, 36″ x 9′ Rotary Granulator, Roller Mill, Batch walk-in oven, Rotex Screen, Pipe Reactor, Indirect Kiln / Dryer, Spargers and heat source for hot melt granulation.
We welcome the opportunity to conduct a free “look-see” test on your material. There is no charge for this quick test to verify that your material will agglomerate. We require only one five-gallon pail of material in the state that you would want to process it and a current MSDS. We would also seek your input as to material characteristics such as size, strength and density you would require in a final product. We can select the most appropriate agglomeration technology and conduct the testing for you. If you have specific ideas regarding the process development, we would value your input.
We have a broad knowledge of binder materials, characteristics and application rates. We also have a wide selection of binders on hand for establishing the most cost effective concentrations to use for your material.
FEECO International, Inc has been supplying companies globally for 55 years with equipment such as Rotary Dryers / Coolers, Pin Mixers, Disc Pelletizers, Material Handling Equipment, Process Systems, Rotary Calciners, Rotary Coolers / Dryers, Rotary Kilns and more.
