What do you need to do for starting small organic fertilizer production?

Before starting small scale organic fertilizer manufacturing, you need to know what you should do for it. Generally, you need to pay attention to 3 items: materials, plant location and equipment selection.

Material collection

In general, you can make small scale organic fertilizer with 3 kinds of materials. Animal manure: cow dung, chicken manure, piggery waste, goat poop, etc; Industrial waste: biogas residue, sludge, sugar waste, mushroom waste, etc; Agricultural litter: straw, sawdust, maize stocks, soya bean residues, etc. It is advisable to use the first two as the main material for organic fertilizer making and the last as auxiliary materials.

Equipment selection

Then suitable equipment purchasing is essential for smoothly small scale organic fertilizer production. For this, you need to know what machine is needed in small scale organic fertilizer making? How much does the small scale organic fertilizer making system cost? Can your small organic fertilizer factory accommodate it? But don’t worry, we will help you. Even we can offer you customized design according to your requirements.

Plant location

For small scale organic fertilizer making plant setup, there are three tips for you. Avoiding building in areas where local policy prohibits. Located in a place with convenient transportation. And setting it up close to raw material sources.

What equipment is suitable for small scale organic fertilizer manufacturing?

When you want to produce organic fertilizer in a small scale, it is necessary to choose organic fertilizer machines with small capacity. Usually, small scale organic fertilizer manufacturing line can produce 1-5 tons of organic fertilizer per hour. For this, SX can provide fertilizer machines as follows:

Screw dewatering machine

For small scale production of organic fertilizer, SXTS-180 screw dehydrator is your best choice. It adopts a stainless steel sieve with 0.3-0.5 mm holes, which can help you separate solids from excrement of livestock quickly. After dewatering, the water content of manure can be reduced to 30%-40%, which is more suitable for organic fertilizer making.

Small scale fertilizer making dehydrator
Equipment Screw Type Dehydrator
Capacity (m³/h) 10-20
Power (kw) 4-5.5
Feeding Moisture 50%-70%
Dischage Moisture 30%-40%
Screen Material Stainless Steel

Small composting equipment

Composting plays an important role in removing harmful substances from manure. For small scale fertilizer fermentation, there are 3 types of fertilizer composting machines for your choice. For starting small scale composting in fermentation trench, we recommend you choose groove type composter. When you plan to start composting on the ground directly, you can buy windrow compost turner. In addition, if you want to finish composting of organic waste faster, the in-vessel fermentation tank is your optimal option.

Equipment Capacity (m³/h) Compost Time (days) Infrastructure Compost Temperature (℃)
Groove Type compost turner 700-2000 15-20 Fermentation Trench 60-70
Windrow Compost Machine 500-1500 15-20 Flat Cement Ground 60-70
In-veseel compostor 5-150 10-15 Flat Cement Ground 60-70

Equipment Semi-wet material crusher
Capacity (m³/h) 1-8
Power (kw) 22- 75
Feeding Moisture 50%-70%
Dischage Size (mesh) 50
Equipment Material Carbon steel Q235

Disc mixer

Then in order to ensure the nutrient balance of your final fertilizer, it needs a mixer to blend different materials evenly. And for small scale organic fertilizer plant mixer, it is advisable to purchase disc blender. It not only has advantages of suitable output, but also low cost, less space occupation, etc.

Small organic fertilizer granulator

When it comes to small scale organic fertilizer granulation machine, we can provide you with disc granulation equipment, new type pelletizer, double roller granulator. If you plant to us water to facilitate the organic fertilizer pellet making, we recommend you choose pan pelleting machine or new type pelletizer. But for starting granulation with moisture content below 15% materials, double roller granulator is your optimum choice.

Equipment Capacity (m³/h) Moisture Granule Size (mm) Feeding Material Size (mesh)
Disc Granulator 1-6 20%-40% 1-8 50
New Type Granulator 1-8 20%-40% 2-5 50
Roller Press Granulator 1-3 5%-10% 1-10 50

How to make better organic fertilizer granules in a small scale?

What you need to do after organic fertilizer pellet production? If you want to make better organic fertilizer in a small scale and have enough budget, you can add the small scale organic fertilizer machines as follows:

Screening equipment

Screening, that is, separating the qualified fertilizer granules from the unqualified. For this, we can offer you rotary screener. Moreover, in small scale organic fertilizer production, most people prefer to use SXGS-1240 sieve machine.

Dryer and cooler for better fertilizer manufacturing

Dryer and cooler

In order to make your final organic fertilizer meet international standards, you also should process them with dryer and cooler. They can eliminate excessive water left by wet granulation to improve your organic fertilizer quality. But they are dispensable for mini organic fertilizer production with dry granulation method.

Coating machine
