The use of granulators for profitable processing of grain waste, animal feed, sawmill waste and furniture production has become familiar. But such equipment can also help in other areas, for example, in the food industry.

Let's talk in more detail what other waste can be recycled with Artmash granulators.

Utilization of substrate for mushrooms

The nutrient medium for mushrooms consists of wet straw, flax bonfires and other plant biomass. It creates excellent growth conditions not only for fungi, but also for pathogenic fungi, small parasites, and other undesirable organisms. Therefore, the mushroom substrate must often be changed and disposed of properly. If it is simply thrown away, not only farmed mushrooms will begin to hurt, but also the maintenance staff.

Granulation of the mushroom substrate is one of the effective ways to utilize it. Unlike conventional combustion, the production of fuel pellets from such biomass allows you to get more heat and reduce ash content.

Mushroom substrate as raw material for granulation

The disadvantage of this method is the need to reduce the moisture content of raw materials to 12-15%. For effective granulation, presses and dryers will additionally have to be used.

Beer pellet food

Beer pellet - brewing waste, which is crushed particles of barley and malt. After heat treatment and the receipt of the wort, it becomes unnecessary and is sent to forage for agricultural animals or used in the confectionery industry. It is really a valuable source of protein and trace elements for livestock, but fresh beer grains deteriorate in 2-3 days. Now it’s more profitable for beer producers to donate grains to the nearest farm than to pay for their placement on the landfill or to try to transport.

Beer pellet for feed granulation

In granular form, beer grains remain a valuable nutritious product, becoming suitable for long-distance transportation and long-term storage. Such a product can already be profitably sold even to distant livestock complexes. Yes, and the farms themselves can take grains for nothing, and then create a supply of excellent food for their animals.

The disadvantage of the method is the same - the need to quickly and at minimal cost dry the raw materials to an acceptable level.

Cake alcohol/post-alcohol bards in granules

In the manufacture of each liter of alcohol, manufacturers receive 10-15 liters of stillage. Initially, the bard contains only 5-10% of grain residues, but usually the humidity is reduced to 55% at the factory, getting cake. Such a thickener can become an additive for livestock feed, but, like beer grains, it tends to deteriorate quickly.

Cake alcohol (post-alcohol) granulation barge

Since waste cannot be disposed of according to the law, alienation at the landfill is expensive, and it is impossible to use the whole cake of bards for animal feed due to the difficulties of transportation, it should be granulated.

The technology and scope are similar to the processing of beer grains.

Lignin processing

Lignin is a natural polymer of plant origin, which becomes a waste of paper production, and also appears during the hydrolysis of plant materials. Previously, it was widely used in the chemical industry, but in recent years it has become almost unclaimed.

Processing lignin into pellets

But this substance is not only perfectly granulated into fuel pellets by itself, but also provides the necessary stickiness of any other biomass. Having lignin in stock, it is possible to produce pellets from sawdust not only in oak and coniferous wood, but also in other types of wood, which are usually not granulated. This will help to efficiently dispose of waste woodworking enterprises that are now throwing or just burning sawdust hardwood.

Also, lignin will help to easily granulate unnecessary straw, which in its pure form hardly sticks to pellets.

How to start granulating?

Keep in mind that the theoretical ability to granulate any raw materials on our equipment is not a guarantee of success. For each material, you need to select the appropriate matrix and the operating mode of a particular granulator model, some materials require the introduction of additional binders. Therefore, do not experiment yourself, risking equipment. Send your raw materials to us and agree with the manager about trial granulation.

Artmash mini granulation line for lignin processing

As a result, you:

  • You will find out which models of Artmash granulators are suitable for processing your raw materials;
  • Get recommendations on equipment operating modes and recipe selection;
  • You will be warned of possible risks and side effects (for example, when granulating the litter, a pungent unpleasant odor is released and the equipment wears out faster due to metal rusting);
  • You will see a photo of the obtained granules and a video of the work process. (At the request of the customer of the experiment, we send the result of granulation to him for subsequent evaluation in the laboratory);
  • You can order a suitable matrix with the desired diameter of the granules or a complete set of equipment for processing the selected raw materials.

Trial experiments are carried out at the Artmash plant for free. You will spend only on the services of transport companies and protect yourself from buying unnecessary equipment.
