High Shear Mixers for the Fertilizer Industry
The Lancaster High Shear Mixer can been used to blend the raw materials for fertilizers and granulate the material in a single process. This is typically done with a lower moisture level than traditional processes. This lower moisture results in a reduction of the drying required and a significant cost savings in the process.
The use of the Lancaster High Shear Mixer for fertilizer production also provides for the production a wide variety of sizes of pellets which can be applied for certain specific applications.
A growing application of this Kercher Industries process application is the conversion of the very fine synthetic gypsum produced by coal fired utilities into a more usable pellet for normal fertilizer application equipment.
