Inorganic Fertilizer Systems
FEECO started its business in 1951 offering fertilizer granulation systems using inorganic raw materials. Today, we have refined the process to provide you with a state-of-the-art system for your granulation needs. We offer two basic types of fertilizer granulation systems: tumble growth granulation and pressure granulation. The best process for you depends on your raw materials and product requirements.
All FEECO equipment and process systems can be outfitted with the latest in automation controls from Rockwell Automation. The unique combination of proprietary Rockwell Automation controls and software, combined with our extensive experience in process design and enhancements with hundreds of materials provides an unparalleled experience for customers seeking innovative process solutions and equipment.
Inorganic Fertilizer Equipment
Tumble Growth Granulation Systems
The tumble growth granulation systems are a classical approach to fertilizer granulation using a rotary drum or disc pelletizer to form the granules, followed by a drying, screening, and recycle circuit. This system is very flexible and allows the use of liquid raw materials (i.e. sulfuric acid, phosphoric acid, ammonia, etc.) and reactions of materials to form granules.
Pressure Granulation Systems
The pressure granulation systems consist of a double roll compactor to make sheets of the material, followed by a crusher and granulator to break the sheet up into granules, screening and recycle. This process does not typically require the addition of liquids or the need to dry.
Some of the systems and processes we offer include:
- DAP (di-ammonium phosphate) and MAP (mono-ammonium phosphate)
- NPK Grades
- Potash (KCl)
- Ammonium Sulfate
- TSP (triple super phosphate) and SSP (single super phosphate)
- Pipe Reactor Grades
- Soil Conditioners (limestone, gypsum, etc.)
- Micronutrients (Zinc Sulfate, Magnesium Sulfate, etc.)
- Animal Feeds – DCP (di-calcium phosphate), MCP (mono-calcium phosphate), and DFP (de-flourinated phosphate)
FEECO International installed its first NPK Granulation plant in 1953 for Agway Fertilizer Company at Lyons, New York. The following year complete battery limit NPK granulation plants were engineered, designed, fabricated and installed world wide. FEECO has been able to stay in the forefront of NPK urea technology by working very closely with both equipment suppliers and customers throughout the world and is indebted to the IFDC for its assistance in urea technology. As the fertilizer industry expands and world wide awareness increases about the agricultural and economic benefits of high urea NPK fertilizers, FEECO has made a commitment to build on its long-standing expertise and maintain its leadership in the design, fabrication, and supply of fertilizer based products.
Pipe Reactor System
The TVA Pipe Reactor System – An important development in energy and cost reduction in the modern MAP (Mono-Ammonium Phosphate),DAP (Di-Ammonium Phosphate), and ammonium sulfate fertilizer processing plants.
FEECO has been leading the industry in modernizing the Pipe Reactor design. Starting with a complete review of all existing equipment, a complete proposal will be submitted incorporating the pipe cross reactor into your new or existing facility. Features of the Pipe Reactor include:
- Heat of reactions utilized to remove moisture from product
- Increases productivity
- Lower production costs
- Formula cost savings
- Less fuel consumption
- Lower moisture content in product to the dryer
- Lower recycle rate
- Better product
- Harder Granules
- Granules more uniformly sized
- Results in less dust
- Better chemical analysis
- Homogenous product particles eliminate NPK segregation during handling and shipping
