Complete Fertilizer Systems

We can design, engineer, and supply a complete, turnkey process plant based on your feed materials and product requirements. Depending on your needs, our complete systems can include metering and control systems, pressure and non-pressure granulation technology, along with all of the necessary material handling and feeding equipment. We provide granular fertilizer solutions in the following three categories:

 

  • Inorganic – Classical approach to manufacturing fertilizers using inorganic raw materials such as sulfuric acid, phosphoric acid, ammonia, potash. phosphate rock, etc.
  • Organic – Utilizes bio-waste to create a granular fertilizer product. Other inorganic raw materials can be added to increase the plant food value as well.
  • Waste-to-Fertilizer – Many industrial processes create process by-products and other materials containing plant food value that can be converted to a granular fertilizer.
Materials
  • Ammonium Sulfate
  • Potash
  • Superphosphates
  • Compost & other organic materials
  • Sulfur

 

In addition to our fertilizer capabilities, we are also highly active in the agriculture industry as a whole. We offer custom equipment and processing solutions for a variety of applications, including the production of animal feed, soil amendments, and other agricultural products. Some of the most common materials we process include:

 

  • Manure – cattle, hog, chicken, chicken litter
  • Dried Distiller’s Grain (DDG)

Material & Process Testing

The FEECO Innovation Center is a unique testing facility where we can conduct both batch and pilot-scale testing on hundreds of materials. The only facility in North America with such diverse and comprehensive testing capabilities, the Innovation Center is where ideas come to life.


FEECO offers a broad range of equipment and systems for agglomeration, granulation, drying, and high temperature thermal applications. Material can be tested on a single device, or as part of a continuous process loop integrating multiple pieces of equipment.


Process experts can guide you through the testing process to provide the answers you’re looking for. Various material characteristics can be analyzed during the testing process to ensure a material will meet its intended application. In combination with our state-of-the-art PLC/MCC system from Rockwell Automation the testing in the Innovation Center offers unmatched data collection, trending, reporting, and ultimately, process transparency. Process experts used the data gathered during batch and pilot-scale testing to scale-up the process to commercial production.


Whether you’re looking to optimize an existing process or product, have an idea for a new product, or would like to adapt a product for a new market, the Innovation Center is well-equipped to suit all of your testing needs. FEECO offers comprehensive testing capabilities in four categories:


Feasibility/Proof of Concept: An initial, non-witnessed batch testing phase in which the possibility of creating a product is explored.
Proof of Product: A more in-depth batch testing phase in which more time is spent determining whether a product can be made to desired specifications.
Proof of Process: A continuous testing phase that aims to establish the equipment setup and parameters required for continuous production of your specific material.
Process/Product Optimization: An in-depth study to optimize your specific material’s characteristics and/or production parameters in an industrial setting.
