What is the difference between granular and powder fertilizer?Which one will be the better?
In recent years, more and more fertilizer manufacturers have chosen to sell more granular fertilizer in the fertilizer market,not powdery npk. But why?What is the difference between granular fertilizer and powder fertilizer?In general, the particle size of the boundary is about 0.1 mm. Particles with a size of less than 0.1 mm are called powder, and the granular size is about 0.1 mm to 10 mm.The larger particles exceeding 10mm are will be caking.
The control of fertilizer particle size is of great significance to the storage and transportation of fertilizers. Powdered fertilizers are easy to produce dust during transportation, causing pollution and waste, while granular fertilizers are not easy to cakeand are easy to transport.
NPK production line will add some trace nutrients to improve the fertilizer efficiency of compound fertilizer, while powder fertilizer is easy to absorb moisture and cakeafter adding trace elements. However, the composition of granular fertilizer is stable, and it is not easy to cakeeven if trace elements are added.
Fertilizer granulation improves the quality of agricultural production. Fertilizer granules play the role of slow-release fertilizer effect. Itis convenient for fertilization and not easy to damage the soil.
Compared withpowdered fertilizers, fertilizer manufacturers choose to produce granular fertilizer can makea higher profit.In the fertilizer market, the price range of per ton granular fertilizer is 200-300$.
Granular fertilizer are selling well in the market
Compared with powdered fertilizers, granular fertilizers need to increase the granulation process. But granular fertilizers have more advantages in circulation, application and fertilizer efficiency, enough to offset the cost of granulation. Therefore, most of the fertilizers sold in the market are in granular form. Recently, farmyard manures and organic fertilizers such as compost and poultry manure have also been used after being granulated.
Granular fertilizer market prospect is broad. Therefore, how to manufacture fertilizer particles？Fertilizer pelleting production process includes mixing,granulating, drying, cooling and so on, so the composition of granular fertilizer production line is more elaborate. Hence you need a variety of fertilizer production equipment to equip the granular fertilizer production plant.
