What is clay soil pelletizing machine?

Clay soil pelletizer is a kind of equipment specialized in pelletizing clay soil raw materials. Moreover, it is widely of application in the fields of ceramics production, horticultural soil conditioner preparation, and environmental engineering. Clay soil pelletizers can be of use to improve productivity and product quality. Thus, it increases their applicability and effectiveness in a wide range of applications. These machines typically include a mixing and blending system to blend the clay and other additives. Then, the mixture is pressed into pellets by means of a die or extrusion mechanism.

Applications of Clay Pellets

In the process of ceramic manufacturing, clay raw material affter granulating is easier to mold. Moreover, because of its good fluidity and uniformity, it can reduce defects in the sintering process of the products, such as bubbles and cracks. Thus, it improves the rate of finished products and product strength.

Clay soil pellets can be of use as a soil conditioner or as a plant growth medium. Its good air permeability and water retention properties help the development of plant roots, and it can also provide some of the minerals required by plants.

Clay soil granules also can be of use as filter material in water treatment projects. Moreover, it utilizes its good adsorption and filtration properties to remove impurities and pollutants in water, for sewage treatment and drinking water purification.

Clay soil granules can be of use to make pet litter. Also, clay soil pellets are made into cat litter because of its strong water absorption ability. Additionally, it facilitates the cleanup after pet excretion and effectively reduces odors.

Top 3 High Efficiency Clay Soil Granulators

Rotary Drum Granulator

Rotary drum granulator is the core machine of a clay soil granulation production line, which is suitable for large-scale production. It adopts the wet method of agglomeration granulation, through a certain amount of water or steam, making the fertilizer in the cylinder body humidification after the full chemical reaction. With the rotary movement of the cylinder, the material is agglomerated into balls. Additionally, if you use this kind of equipment for granulation, you may need to equip a fertilizer drying and cooling machine for your clay soil pellet production line. Of course, we have suitable dryer and cooler for your use.

Disk Pelletizer

Clay soil disc granulator is a highly efficient granulating equipment, which is popular for small and medium scale granules production. Indeed, it has three discharge ports on this granulator, which can realize continuous production and greatly improve the production efficiency. It not only has the simple structure and flexible operation, but also has a high granulation rate of more than 93%. For this reason, it is an ideal machine for many mineral fertilizer manufacturers because of its high efficiency.

Double Roller Extrusion Granulator

Double roller extrusion granulator is a practical pelletizer, It adopts dry granulation method while processing. Thus it is suitable for materials with a moisture content of less than 10%. Moreover, the granulation process of this equipment has low energy consumption and the finished granules are of high strength. It is suitable for small-scale clay soil granulating production line, which can form a certain continuous and mechanized production. This kind of granulator can get more uniform and specific shape of particles. Thus, it’s a good choice for many manufacturers.

How to make clay soil pellet during the granulating production line?

  • 【High efficiency】The clay soil granulator is able to process a large amount of clay raw materials in a shorter period of time, improving the production efficiency.

  • 【Energy saving and eco-friendly】Through physical pressure granulation, avoiding the use of chemical additives, the production process is more environmentally friendly.

  • 【Easy to operate】Nowadays, the clay soil granulator usually has high degree of automation. Thus, this makes it easy to operate and convenient to maintain.

  • 【Wide applicability】It has the ablity to handle clay raw materials with different humidity and viscosity, which is applicable for a wide range of raw materials.

  • 【High pellet quality】The clay soil pellets after granulation process have good homogeneity and stability, and the quality of finished products is easy to control.

How To Form A Complete Production Line For Clay Soil Granules?

If you want to assemble your clay soil pelletizing production line, Shunxin Machinery Fertilizer Equipment Company can fully meet your needs. In fact, we have various types of fertilizer equipment. And a complete pelletizing production line usually includes material crushing, mixing, granulating, drying and cooling, screening, coating, packaging and other processes. The following are the main equipment and processes of clay soil pelletizing production line.

First of all, you need to pulverize the raw clay material to achieve a specific particle size for granulation. If you adopt wet granulation methoed, there is essential for you to adjust the humidity of the raw material or add the proper amount of binder. For this process, you can choose the suitable crusher according to the production needs. And we have 3 pulverizers for you, which are chain pulverizer, cage pulverizer and new vertical pulverizer.

Then, it’s necessary to mix the pulverized clay material evenly, this process ensures the quality of the pellets after granulation. If needed, you can also add appropriate amount of binder or wetting agent in this process. Shunxin has four types of mixers: horizontal mixer, double shafts horizontal mixer, single shaft horizontal mixer and disc mixer. You can choose whatever mixer you want concerning to your needs.

Granulating is a critical process in a granulation production line. And, it turns the clay particles into pellets by a granulating machine. The granulator can effectively improve the efficiency of material use and product quality. For this process, we have 3 types of equipment for you to choose from: rotary drum granulator, disc granulator and double roller extrusion granulator. Apparently, different types of granulators are suitable for different raw materials and granulation methods. In fact, the choice of granulator is mainly based on the moisture of the material and the scale of production. For rotary drum granulator, it adopts dry granulation methed and is more suitable for large-scale production. However, the disc granulator and double roller extrusion granulator adopts wet granulation method. Hence, they are more suitable for small and medium scale production.

Freshly finished pellets usually contain a high water moisture, thus you need a drying equipment to evaporate the extra water. Subsequently, the temperature of the dried pellets are rather high. So there is a need for cooling machine to cool down the pellets. This could prevent damage to the pellets or loss of quality caused by the high temperature.

This process is not necessary for all granules. Since some granular materials are susceptible to oxidation or moisture. So you can coat them after granulating to protect from moisture and oxidation.

Finally, you can weigh and package the finished pellets, which is convenient for storage and transportation.

Do You Know Why Make Clay Soil Into Granules?

Clay soil is a kind of sandy clay with a variety of minerals, and its main components are silicate minerals, mica and diatoms. Clay soil granulation is the clay material through the granulation equipment processing into a certain shape and size particles. Furthermore, clay soil granulation  not only enhances its suitability and effectiveness in multiple application fields, but also  improves the physical properties of the material, such as increasing strength, improving air permeability and so on. Accordingly, this process will inevitably use the clay granulator, which can process the clay powder into granular materials. Especially, this process will directly affects the quality of the finished product. Owing to the variety of ways to make clay granules, including roller granulation, extrusion granulation methods. Definitely, we have different granulating machines that are suitable for different product requirements.
