EQUIPMENT

FEECO has been providing the fertilizer industry with custom equipment and process solutions for phosphates since 1951. We offer a range of capabilities to suit both novel and traditional phosphoric fertilizer production capabilities.

Material Processing

Granulation & Agglomeration

FEECO granulation drums are the standard production equipment for producing granular monoammonium and diammonium phosphate products. We can provide everything from a single granulation drum, to an engineered, process equipment package. In addition to our granulation drums, we also offer custom pipe cross reactors, or pipe reactors.

 

FEECO also offers a variety of additional agglomeration equipment including disc pelletizers, pin mixers, and pugmill mixers (paddle mixers) for producing specialty fertilizer products.

Coating

Specifically designed around the unique characteristics of the product at hand, FEECO coating drums are the device of choice when a uniform coating and premium granular fertilizer product are sought.

Rotary Dryers & Coolers

FEECO rotary dryers are the ideal industrial drying solution for phosphate at every stage of its lifecycle; from drying phosphate rock for production, to drying granular fertilizer products into their final moisture range.

 

FEECO rotary coolers are also widely applied as a finishing step in the fertilizer granulation process.

Bulk Material Handling

FEECO also provides a comprehensive line of bulk material handling equipment for all of your MAP & DAP handling needs. We offer custom bucket elevators, belt conveyors, reversing shuttle conveyors, and steep incline conveyors, along with equipment 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 bulk handling system as part of an overall process solution.

Plant and Pilot Scale Process Testing and Design

From traditional products to those from novel sources and recovered phosphates, FEECO is an expert in designing systems for the production of phosphate fertilizers, including MAP and DAP.

 

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.

 

The FEECO Innovation Center is well-equipped to suit a wide range of testing needs, including granulation, pelletizing, drying, and coating. 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.
