How to Make Organic Fertilizer Pellets?

As we all know, there is a long history for making organic fertilizer. From using animal manure directly to making organic fertilizer compost, it develops to make organic fertilizer pellets or granules. However, what is the whole organic fertilizer production process? Generally speaking, it can be divided into two main steps, composting and granulation.

◇ Organic materials fermentation and decomposition

It usually adopts aerobic fermentation as the core of compact treatment in commercial organic fertilizer industrial production. The process consists of solid-liquid separation, material pre-treatment, fermentation, turning and decomposition. Studies have shown that the essence of the fermentation process is microbial decomposition of organic matter, wherein the amount of gas, temperature, humidity, and C/N are the main fermentation parameters, so the key technology of the regulation is to create a suitable environment for the aerobic microorganisms. In the retting process, heap mild pH value rising leads to nitrogen volatilization losses. Reducing nitrogen loss and preventing excessive organic matter decomposition of organic fertilizer are the keys to improve the organic fertilizer quality. The above problems can be solved by improving material pre-treatment, adjusting C/N, moisture, pH, and controlling temperature and fermentation time.
◇ Fermented organic material granulation
Fermented organic materials are characterized by coarse texture, poor adhesion and

granulating difficulty. It has been bottleneck in organic fertilizer production for a long time. Organic fertilizer granulation can be in extrusion granulator organic production line and disc granulation organic fertilizer production line. Recently, organic fertilizer production can be processing in new type fertilizer granulator production line and pan fertilizer granulator production line.

How to Make Humic Acid Fertilizer?

Humic Acid Fertilizer”.  Humic Acid Fertilizer containing Humic substances is the major constituents of Soil, Coal, Peat, Lakes, Ocean water etc. Humic Acid Fertilizer is produced by Bio degradation of dead organic matter over time. Humic Acid Fertilizer manufactured contains a complex mixture of many Carboxyl and Phenolate group acids. Fulvic acid fertilizer are Humic Acid Fertilizer having lower molecular weight and higher Oxygen content than most other Humic Acid Fertilizer. You can use organic fertilizer making machine to produce humic acid fertilizer.

Humic Acid Fertilizer is made with Naturally available Potassium Humate which is 100 % water-soluble. Humic Acid Fertilizer is used to supplement marginal soil with low organic matter and salt problems. Humic Acid Fertilizer also helps in releasing unavailable micro nutrients presents in the soil which in turn increases water holding capacity of the soil. Besides Humic Acid Fertilizer is an excellent addition to any compost or fertilizer. Click here to learn more about

    Humic acid is a hot topic in composting. It is a natural component of soil, mulch, peat and other earthy products. Humic acid is a by-product of microbes created during the decomposition of organic matter.

     

     

     

    What Does Humic Acid Do?                                                                                     

    Humic acid holds moisture in, and keeps soil wetter for longer. It also helps plants absorb vital nutrients.

    Do You Need to Add Humic Acid to Your Compost?                                                                 

    There are some companies that produce humic acid as an additive for compost and compost tea. Compost by itself creates humic acid. Unless your soil is sterile, the humic acid produced naturally by composting is all you need.     

    Should You Put Humic Acid in You Compost Tea?                                                                

    Commercially produced humic acid can be a useful additive in compost tea. It is a food substrate and food source for microorganisms. Plants being given compost tea with humic acid added to it will benefit from its ability to aid in water retention and nutrient uptake. Humic acid can also increase the fungal content of your tea.

What is Organic Fertilizer Making Process?

The whole organic fertilizer manufacturing process consists of: raw materials choosing →materials crushing→fermentation→blending (mixing with other organic-inorganic materials, NPK≥4%, organic matter ≥30%)→organic fertilizer granulation→drying→cooling→packaging

1)Fermentation Process:

electricity system, turning components and multi-tank system. Fermentation and turning parts adopt advanced roller drive. The fermentation equipment of hydraulic fertilizer turner can be raised and lowered freely.
◇Shred raw materials using a mechanical shredder if necessary
◇Bag and weigh raw materials to compute for proportions of each material based on nature and moisture content
◇Pile the raw materials while watering if moisture is below 50%
◇Inoculate with activator while piling to attain well-distributed inoculants
◇Sieve the pile after the 7th turning
◇Sweeten pile to cool down temperature and open pile for 7 days to reduce moisture to 40%
◇Turn the pile every 2 days for seven times and check decomposition process within pile to determine if additional decomposition period is required. Moist the pile if necessary
2)Granulation Process
New organic fertilizer granulation machine is widely used in organic fertilizer granulation,

and it is the dedicated fertilizer pellet mill to granulate organic waste, such as animal manure, rotten fruit, fruit peels, raw vegetables, green manure, sea manure, farmyard manure, three waste and microorganisms etc. Due to high granulation rate, stable operation, durable equipment and long service life, it has been the ideal choice for organic fertilizer production. The shell of this fertilizer pellet mill are made of seamless tubes, more durable and never deformation. Coupled with secure base design, making this machine run more stable. The compressive strength of new type granulator is higher than disc granulator and rotary drum granulator. Size of particles is adjustable in accordance with customers’ requirements. This fertilizer granulator is most suitable for direct-granulation after organics fermentation, saving drying process, and greatly reducing the production cost.
3)Fertilizer Drying and Cooling Process
The granular fertilizer formed by the fertilizer granulator has high moisture content and

shall be dried to meet the standard. Rotary drum drying machine is mainly used for drying fertilizer with certain humidity and particle size in the compound fertilizer and organic fertilizer production. Fertilizer after drying have high temperature and shall be cooled to prevent caking of the fertilizer. Rotary drum cooling machine is used to cool fertilizer with certain temperature and particle size in compound fertilizer production line and organic fertilizer production line. The cooler is used combining with the rotary dryer, which can greatly increase the cooling rate, reduce labor intensity, increase capacity, and further remove the moisture and reduce the temperature of fertilizer.
4) Fertilizer Screening Process
In fertilizer production, the fertilizer granular shall be screened before packaging to ensure the uniformity of the finished product. Rotary drum screening machine is a common equipment used in the fertilizer industry for compound fertilizer production and organic fertilizer production. Rotary screen is mainly used in the fertilizer production line to separate finished product and returning materials. The trommel can also be used for classifying the finished product.

5) Fertilizer Packing
Materials are fed by gravity-type feeder, then enter into weighing system uniformly through gravity-type feeder from stock bin or production line. The gravity-type feeder starts to run after turning on packing machine. Then material will be filled into weighing hopper, through weighing hopper filled into bag. When weight reaches the preset value, the gravity-type feeder will stop running. Operators takes filled bag away, or put it on belt conveyor to sewing machine. The packing process finishes.
