At Mars Mineral, we’re giving limestone quarry operators and fertilizer plants the ability to pelletize limestone fines cost-effectively. We’re also helping distributors and retailers capitalize on increased market demand for limestone-based soil stimulants.
For more than 40 years, Mars Mineral has led the way in design, engineering and production of agitation agglomeration systems that turn limestone fines into fertilizer pellets for use in residential and commercial settings.
Our pelletizing systems provide numerous benefits, including:
We also offer testing services to determine the ability of your material to be pelletized (pelletability). Our additional capabilities include customized research studies and pilot scale development programs tailored to your specific requirements.
Pelletized limestone offers numerous benefits to quarry operators and fertilizer manufacturers. They include:
The popularity of pelletized limestone results from millions of homeowners willing to do everything within reason to achieve lawns that are the envy of the neighborhood. One thing that enables lawns to achieve their lush growth is the benefits provided by the addition of pelletized limestone to fertilizer.
The Pin Mixer receives limestone dust, fines or powders from the storage bin and feeder, mixes it with binder, pelletizes and sends the pellets to the Dryer.
The Dryer dries and cools the pellets, discharging them onto a conveyor belt that carries them to the Screen
The Screen removes and recycles oversized and undersized pellets, sending the “good” ones to the pellet storage bin, located outside the building.
The Bagger takes the pellets from the pellet storage bin and automatically fills a flexible intermediate bulk container (FIBC) or other package.
The Palletizer & Stretch Wrapper arrange the filled bags on pallets, stacking them for shipment and stretch-wrapping them to the pallet for stability in transport.
With a Mars Mineral Pelletizing System, you’re helping to reduce environmental and public health problems by converting dusts, fines or powders into pellets which are easy to transport, re-use or store.
To make feedstocks for a multitude of industrial products, depend on our Pin Mixer PRO-DFP.
With a capacity to produce 0.3 to 90 tons of pellets per hour, the Pin Mixer PRO-DFP can help you:
The Pin Mixer PRO-DFP features carbon or stainless steel construction, as well as variable frequency drives to help you maximize productivity.
