The production process for NPK fertilizers typically involves blending different ratios of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium compounds, along with other micronutrients such as sulfur, magnesium, and calcium. These compounds may be sourced from various raw materials, such as ammonia, urea, phosphoric acid, and potassium chloride.
The manufacturing process may vary depending on the specific type of NPK fertilizer being produced, but generally involves the following steps:
The first step in the process is to prepare the ingredients required for the fertilizer. This involves sourcing the raw materials such as urea, diammonium phosphate (DAP), and potassium chloride.
After the raw materials have been prepared, they are mixed together in the right proportion to achieve the desired NPK 15-15-15 ratio. The mixing process can be done in a large mixer or blending machine.
The next step is to granulate the mixed fertilizer. You can choose the wet granulator or dry granulator to form small pellets or granules. The granules are then dried to remove any excess moisture.
The granules are then cooled to room temperature to prevent clumping or sticking together.
The cooled granules are screened to remove any oversized or undersized particles. This ensures that the final product has a consistent particle size.

Our professional engineer will make the full quotation for you according to your requirements. We offer free field analysis and CAD drawing. Furthermore, we will help you calculate the power consumption, labor, site, etc. of the entire production line. Related any question, our stuff will spare no effect to answer.
A Design for a Fertilizer Factory to Produce Mainly NPK-12-24-12
To produce NPK 20 10 10 fertilizer, you will need to mix 20% nitrogen, 10% phosphorus, and 10% potassium. This can be done in a mixing machine, which can also add micronutrients and other additives as required. The mixed fertilizer needs to be granulated to form small, uniform particles that are easy to handle and apply. There are various granulation techniques such as pan granulation, rotary drum granulation, and double roller NPK granulator.
We recommend you our SXZGZ-1870 rotary drum granulator, its capacity is 5-8 t/h. This machine is a key machine in NPK fertilizer making. The rotary drum granulator is a machine which apply to organic or NPK fertilizer production.
How Much is 5-8 t/h NPK Fertilisers Plant?
The process of NPK fertilisers making includes batching, granulating, drying, cooling and coating etc. Because of the complex step, thus you need more NPK production equipment to assemble the NPK fertilizer plant. The cost is higher than the powder NPK fertilizer.
NPK Fertilizers Granulator Rotary Drum Plant of Capacity 10mt Per Hour
NPK Fertilizers Granulator Rotary drum plant is a NPK production line mainly consist of the rotary drum granulator. We designed different capacity drum granulator for NPK fertilizer making. If you want to set up a capacity of 10mt per hour NPK fertilizers granulator rotary drum plant, we advise you our SXZGZ-2080 rotary drum granulator. It has a capacity of 8-15 t/h. When you using the drum granulator to granulate, you should add some steam or water to the machine.
When you plan to produce 200t NPK fertilizer in one day, supposing a granulator works ten hours a day, then you need at least one 20t/h granulator or even more large capacity. Our max granulator is SXZGZ-3210 rotary drum granulator, which it can granulate 30t NPK fertilizer one hour. Thus it is easy to produce 200 ton per day for it.
What equipment is suitable for NPK fertilizer manufacturing?
Machinery to Mix, Granulate, Coat, and Bag NPK Fertilizer
NPK Fertilizer Horizontal Mixer
Besides the batching machine, the efficiency of the mixer is an important factor determining the quality of the NPK fertilizer. Only the material mix evenly, the every granulator can has balanced nutrients. We highly recommend our horizontal mixer for your NPK fertilizer production. When the horizontal mixer working, the material in the machine is operated by two opposing rotors to turn around.
How to prevent the NPK fertilizer lump in together? Using our NPK rotary coating machine. It will coat your NPK fertilizer granulators with a layer of special materials which prevent the granulator sticking together.
NPK Fertilizer Bagging Machine
In order to remain the speed of the whole production line, it is necessary to buy an auto NPK fertilizer bagging machine.
Batching System For NPK Batching Unit
Are you worried about what to do if there is too much or too little of a certain element in the process of making NPK fertilizer? As for this condition, we designed the batching system to resolve the problem. SX has dynamic batching machine and static batching machine for you to choose.
Multi-bin Dynamic Batching Machine for Automatic Batching
It designed for continuous batching in commercial organic or NPK fertilizer plant. You can customized the bins of the batching machine. There is a belt conveyor under each bin to ensure the continuous batching of materials. How does the automatic batching machine accurately control the amount of materials? The automatic batching system adopts weight controller and sensor. It can batch and control the materials accurately.
when you need extra materials to you NPK fertilizer, we high recommend you our static batching machine. It has multiple hoppers and one belt conveyor. The can realize the material down one by one and through the conveyor into next step.
Commercial Offer Request for NPK Fertilizers Granules Drying and Cooling Machines
The rotary drum dryer and cooler are the key equipment in the production NPK fertilizer. The dryer is using to remove the extra moisture and the cooler is to cut down the temperature for bagging. Furthermore, it can reserve the granules for longer time after the drying and cooling.
After granulating, the moisture of the granules is about 30%, using the dryer can decrease to 13%. We designed different capacity dryer and cooler for your choice. From 1t/h to 20 t/h, can satisfy your requirements.
Things You Should to Consider Before Starting Your NPK Fertilizer Plant
Conduct market research
Before starting any business, it is important to conduct market research to determine the demand for your product, as well as the potential competition you may face.
Starting a fertilizer factory can require significant upfront investment. You will need to secure funding from investors, loans, or other sources to cover the cost of land, equipment, raw materials, labor, and other expenses.
Select a location
Choose a location for your factory that is easily accessible to raw materials, labor, and transportation. You may also need to obtain necessary permits and licenses for your factory.
Set up equipment
Purchase or lease the necessary equipment for your factory, including mixers, grinders, and packaging machines.
Source raw materials
Purchase high-quality raw materials for your fertilizer, including nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium compounds.
Mix the raw materials in the appropriate ratios to create your NPK-12-24-12 fertilizer. Use specialized equipment to ensure the ingredients are evenly distributed.
Package and label
Package your fertilizer in bags or other containers and label them according to regulatory requirements. After packing, you can sale them to local farmer or gardern owner.
Ensure quality control
Regularly test your fertilizer for quality and consistency. Make adjustments as needed to maintain the desired NPK ratio and other product characteristics.
Ensure environmental compliance
Follow all safety regulations and take measures to protect your employees and the environment. Dispose of waste properly and minimize environmental impact.
Market and distribute
Develop a marketing strategy to promote your fertilizer to potential customers, such as farmers, landscapers, and retailers. Distribute your fertilizer through various channels, such as direct sales, distribution partners, and online platforms.
NPK fertilizer plants may range in size from small-scale operations to large industrial facilities, and may be located in areas with high agricultural production or close to sources of raw materials. The production of NPK fertilizers requires specialized equipment and expertise in chemical engineering, process design, and quality control to ensure the production of high-quality fertilizers that meet the needs of farmers and growers.
