The time and frequency of material rolling in the rotary drum granulator are the primary factors to determine the pelletizing rate and particle roundness. The roundness of granular product in fertilizer production can be improved by controlling the drum granulator.
Production principle of rotary drum granulator
Materials rely on surface tension, proper amount of liquid phase, extrusion force generated by rolling between materials, and correct movement direction of materials in the granulator, with small particles as the core, they absorb and adhere to each other and form balls in rolling. In a certain period of time, the higher the rolling frequency is, the higher the spheroidization rate is, and the rounder the particles are.
In the process of production, we have encountered two kinds of situations due to the different friction between materials and the wall of granulator.
1. The internal surface finish of granulator is large, so that the friction force between material and cylinder wall is reduced, and the upward movement force of material is weakened. If the material does not roll, it will not produce particles. In view of this situation, we can solve this problem by adjusting the speed
