Abstract: The continuous production of 3 to 4.5 mm NPK-granules is achieved by spraying an appropriate mixture onto recycle or reflux (undersize) product in a rotating drum. Hot air is used to evaporate the water. An extensive study was performed on an industrial granulator to evaluate mass and energy balances, to define the average residence time of the reflux-particles and to develop a model for particle growth.
