Poultry manure is the most commonly used material in organic fertilizer production. But fresh poultry manure usually has a high moisture content between 70%-90%, which is not suitable for organic fertilizer manufacturing. Therefore, it is necessary to dry the manure, and it runs through the whole process of organic fertilizer making. For this, we especially design a fertilizer dryer line for you. It can fully meet your requirements of drying manure fertilizer. They generally play important roles in organic fertilizer making. So drying manure is greatly helpful for you to turn poultry manure into quality organic fertilizer.

Why Do you Need to Dewater Poultry Manure in your Farm?

When you have more poultry manure in your farm but not to know how to dispose of them. SX can provide you a suitable advice – dewatering poultry manure. This step is very important. Because only after dewatering poultry manure can carry out subsequent processing.

Poultry manure is the most common material for the production of organic fertilizer, such as cow dung, chicken manure, pig poop, etc. Because it contains rich nutrients, which are necessary for the growth of crops and plants. But you cannot use poultry manure as fertilizer directly. Because poultry waste usually has a high moisture content, which will affect organic fertilizer making. For this, it is advisable to use manure dewatering machine to remove excessive water from it. Solid liquid separator and inclined screen dehydrator are the best choice for you.

How to Remove Excessive Moisture from your Poultry Manure?

How to dry poultry manure? Commonly, there are two types of dewatering machines for your choice.

Screw Dewatering Machine for Low Moisture Content Manure Processing

If you want to process poultry manure with low water content of 50%-90%, screw dewatering machine is the best choice for you. It adopts physical extrusion dewatering method, which can remove excessive water from manure in a short time. And after dewatering, the moisture content of your manure material will decrease to 30%-40%.

Inclined Screen Dehydrator for High Water Content Manure Drying

However, when you plan to compost manure which has high water content over 90%, it is wise to buy our inclined screen dehydrator. Before extrusion, inclined screen dewatering equipment will separate solid from liquid. Hence,it can dry high water content poultry manure more effectively. And the separation rate can reach 95%.

After Granulation to Dry Poultry Manure Fertilizer

If you want to get more profits from poultry manure, the best way is to make them in to granules. When you use wet granulation method, you need to dry poultry manure pellets after granulation. For this, what equipment can be used in fertilizer dryer line after granulation?

Rotary Drying Machine

In this process, rotary drum dryer is your best option, especially pan granulation and rotary drum pelleting. Compared with dewatering equipment, it relies on high temperature to process manure. The temperature in drying drum can reach 300℃, so rotary drying machine can further reduce the moisture content of manure fertilizer pellets to a lower level, about 10%.

Rotary Cooling Equipment

Can we directly package poultry manure fertilizer after rotary drum drying? No,we cannot. After rotary drying of poultry manure, the temperature of final organic fertilizer is about 30°C – 40℃. Which will affect the quality of your manure organic fertilizer and is not suitable for bagging and storing directly. So there is rotary cooling machine designed for you. It can reduce the excessive temperature of manure fertilizer quickly.

How to Make it Easier for you to Transport and Store Final Dried Fertilizer?

In the fertilizer dryer line, the last machine is package machine. It can help you transport and store the final dried fertilizer. For this, there are three types of automatic packaging machine for your choice.

Small Scale Single Bucket Automatic Bagging Machine

If you only plan to start a small scale organic fertilizer making preparation, out single automatic bagging machine is your best option. As the name suggests, this machine only has one feeding port. But it can fully meet the requirements of small quantities fertilizer packaging. Moreover, it has advantages of integrated structure (packing + sealing), small area coverage, low cost, etc.

Medium Double Buckets Auto Packing Scale

However, when you need a packager for larger scale organic fertilizer manufacturing plan, it is an ideal choice to purchase double buckets auto packing scale. It can process fertilizer with two ports simultaneously. That is, you can complete the fertilizer packaging in only half the time.

Large Scale Ton Packaging Equipment

Then if we want to pack organic fertilizer into bag with a capacity over 1 ton, is there suitable equipment? Of course. For this, SX design ton packaging equipment, which can package 500-2,000 kg per bag. In addition, it has a high degree of automation and high packing precision. The packing speed can be adjusted. And it adopts a unique hydraulic lifting system,which makes large scale fertilizer packaging easier.

How to Upgrade your Fertilizer Dryer Line?

After drying and cooling, you can package poultry manure fertilizer. But if you want to upgrade your fertilizer dryer line, you can add dust collector system. It effectively maintains your production environment.

When you are drying and cooling poultry manure pellets, it will produce some dust. For this, SX can provide you three types of dust collector: cyclone dust collector, bag filter dust collector and water curtain duct collector. The water curtain can fully collecting the small quantity dust after the dust collecting room. And the bag filter has the same function with the dust collect room. If you use the bag filter after dust collecting room, still have some dust will into the air. What’s more, cyclone and dust collecting room, because of the space room, we cannot include them in the plant. For this, water curtain dust collector is the best choice for you.

What is the Cost of Fertilizer Dryer Line?

After deciding what equipment is used in your fertilizer dryer line, it is time to purchase it for your organic fertilizer manufacturing line. In this process, the cost is an item you must pay attention to. Then where to buy the fertilizer dryer line at a low cost? You can choose SX Engineering Equipment Co., Ltd. The price of SX fertilizer dryer line is $20,000-$250,000. Why SX can provide you with manure drying machines at a favourable price? For one thing, we are a leading fertilizer equipment manufacturer and we have the strength to provide you with drying machines at a low cost. For another, we are a source factory for manure fertilizer equipment manufacturing. So there is no extra charge during the transaction.
