With a material as demanding as potash, it’s important that your processing equipment is robust and able to withstand harsh processing conditions. The industry’s top potash producers rely on FEECO for the best in custom equipment and process solutions. All of our equipment is designed to work around the unique characteristics that potash presents.
Pelletizing & Compaction
FEECO is a leader in agglomeration equipment and can provide individual pieces of equipment, as well as complete process systems for pelletizing and granulating potash.
Rotary Dryers & Coolers
Our rotary dryers and coolers are the industry standard for drying and cooling potash efficiently and reliably. Our drying and cooling systems can be integrated into both pelletizing and compaction granulation settings depending on the requirements of your process.
Rotary equipment is especially beneficial when working with potash, because the tumbling action imparted by the rotating drum helps to wear down any rough granule edges, polishing the product and reducing the opportunity for attrition.
BULK MATERIAL HANDLING
FEECO also provides a comprehensive line of bulk material handling equipment for all of your potash 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 bulk handling system as part of an overall process solution.
PLANT AND PILOT SCALE PROCESS TESTING AND DESIGN
With challenging characteristics and wide variability, testing is often a critical component in the success of a potash processing operation. 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 pelletizing, drying, and roll compaction. 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.
PARTS & SERVICE
FEECO provides a comprehensive offering of parts and service to keep your equipment running its best for years to come. This includes a variety of field services, process and equipment audits, spare parts, and more.
