Saving energy while avoiding caking
The cooling of different fertilizer products minimizes the thermal effects and chemical reactions which can result in ‘caking’ – the creation of crystal bridges from small amounts of salt solutions present in the granules. Eliminating the caking mechanism allow the product to maintain easy flow characteristics in storage and downstream transportation.
In order to tackle this problem Solex Thermal Science introduced an indirect plate-type heat exchanger used in the final fertilizer cooling step before product storage or packaging. The cooling system offers several major advantages over fluid bed coolers (FBC) and rotary drum coolers.
