Phosphates Processing

With decades of experience in working with phosphates, we can assist you with all of your phosphate processing needs, whether you’re working with granular fertilizers, animal feed, or other phosphate products. We have you covered from a single piece of equipment, to a complete process system. We can also assist in process development and material testing, as well as process scale-up and the manufacture of custom processing equipment to produce the results you’re looking for.

 


Phosphatic Fertilizer Production

We offer the best in fertilizer production equipment and systems for all of your phosphatic fertilizer needs, whether you’re producing Mono-Ammonium Phosphate (MAP), Di-Ammonium Phosphate (DAP), Triple Super Phosphate (TSP), Single Super Phosphate (SSP), NPK blends, or otherwise.

Equipment

Material Processing

Agglomeration & Granulation

FEECO is a leader in agglomeration equipment and can provide individual pieces of equipment, as well as complete process systems for pelletizing and granulating phosphates, whether that be for animal feed, fertilizer products, or otherwise.

 

Our granulation drums, pipe reactorshammer mills, and complete granulation systems are relied on by the fertilizer industry’s top producers.

 

Similarly, the animal feed industry relies on our pug mills and high speed mixers for the best in MCP and DCP animal feed granulation systems and equipment.

Rotary Dryers & Coolers

Our rotary dryers and coolers are the industry standard for drying and cooling phosphate products efficiently and reliably. Our robust drying and cooling systems can be integrated into fertilizer, animal feed, or phosphate ore upgrading systems.

 

Rotary Kilns

FEECO rotary kilns are the thermal processing tool of choice for upgrading phosphate ores.

 

Material Handling

FEECO also provides a comprehensive line of material handling equipment for all of your phosphate handling needs. We offer custom bucket elevators, belt conveyors, reversing shuttle conveyors, and steep incline conveyors, along with pieces to increase the flexibility of your handling system, such as belt trippers and plows, and belt feeders.

 

We can supply a single piece of handling equipment to fit into your existing process, or a complete handling system as part of an overall process solution.

 

Plant and Pilot Scale Process Testing and Design

The FEECO Innovation Center is a unique testing facility where we can test your material at both batch and pilot scale in order to work out process variables and design commercial-scale units, as well as scale up the process.

 

Whether you are working with ore, animal feed, or fertilizer products, the FEECO Innovation Center is well-equipped to suit a wide range of testing needs, including granulation, drying, and even high temperature thermal processing. We can test on a single piece of equipment, or a continuous process loop.

 

We offer comprehensive testing services 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.
