Organic Fertilizer Processing Systems

The ever-increasing demand for natural or organic fertilizers materials requires innovative solutions for efficient processing. Whether the need is for dried powder material for dispersion, granulation for broadcast spreading, dedusting or a combination of technologies, Bepex can offer a solution to meet the needs of organic fertilizer processing. Whether starting from wet cake, powder or slurry based raw material sources, Bepex industrial process systems can deliver the required results.

Our organic fertilizer processing systems are used to produce various final product grades.

  • Drying, Reacting and Pasteurization of feed and product characteristics
  • Granulation: Roll compaction or wet agglomeration systems for production of granules

Our process systems for organic fertilizers are industry proven. The PCX dispersion dryer not only offers efficient drying, but provides premilling of filter cakes. This results in the generation of a usable powder material directly from the dryer but also results in less energy consumption in subsequent milling steps. The Bepex Pulvocron is an air swept pulverizer with internal classification if control of the final product size is important. The Pulvocron system can function for both drying and milling. Both the PCX and Pulvocron systems offer an attractive alternative to spray drying, both in operational and installation costs.

Indirect heat transfer results in the need for far less sweep gas than direct system meaning less gas treatment. Indirect options include the Bepex Solidaire paddle dryer, which uses a heated cylindrical vessel with a paddle type rotor and Torus Disc, which uses a heated vessel with a hollow disc type rotor. The Bepex Thermascrew is an indirect heating system that is used for material cooling.

Bepex has several options and the choice of system is decided by the requirements of the final product. Bepex MS Series roll compactors are well proven. Because of the high pressures involved, hard, dense granules are produced, often without the need for binders. By a simple change of screens and milling conditions, the final particle size is controlled.

In wet granulation systems, dry solids are mixed with moisture in a turbulent environment, as created in the Bepex Turbulizer and FlexTurbulizer, to grow granules. Fluid bed drying provides drying and final conditioning.

Testing is conducted on full scale production equipment to insure a smooth transition from development to production and product quality is checked at every step of the process. You can rely on Bepex as a trusted partner for organic fertilizer processing, drying, granulating and pulverizing.
