The Philippines is a country that makes animal husbandry a priority industry. It provides strong policy support for farmers. Including policy support on production, market, training and related systems. Therefore, there are many poultry farms in the Philippines. For these poultry farm owners, poultry waste management is important. And making it in organic fertilizer is an ideal choice for them. So on 18th July 2022, a customer from Philippines who has a 240,000 birds farm inquired us about it. Then we designed a suitable fertilizer production project for the customer from Philippines according to his actual situation. The following are the specific details of the case of chicken manure fertilizer production line for 240,000 birds farm in philippines:
How to make chicken manure into fertilizer pellets?
What equipment is needed to make chicken manure into organic fertilizer
A whole chicken manure fertilizer production line usually consists of nine parts. Composting, batching, crushing, mixing, granulating, screening, drying and cooling, coating and packaging. Every process has its own unique role. And SX can provide you with suitable equipment for each process to help you produce high quality chicken manure fertilizer.
You can choose them according to your needs. And we will design the project according your requirements.
What capacity of organic production line is suitable for 240,000 birds farm
This customer from Philippines has a chicken farm of 240,000 birds, so we recommend him choose a 2t/h fertilizer production line for chicken manure. Because an adult chicken can produce about 0.15 kg of manure a day. So 240,000 birds will produce about 36,000 kg of manure per day, equal to 36 tons. But the chicken manure from the Philippine customer is fresh. It contains solid and water. Only 1/3 of it can be used to manufacture organic fertilizer. Therefore the feces generated by 240,000 birds a day can make 12 tons of organic fertilizer. And considering that you need to add other materials during chicken manure fertilizer preparation. We recommended him a 2 t/h organic fertilizer making line of chicken manure.
How to make fresh chicken droppings become suitable for organic fertilizer making
As mentioned above, the material from the Philippine customer is fresh chicken droppings. In general, it is a mixture of solids and water. This means it has a high moisture content, which has a serious impact on composting and final organic fertilizer quality. Therefore, fresh chicken dropping is not suitable for starting organic fertilizer preparation directly. Then how to adjust the water content of chicken poop and make it suitable for organic fertilizer manufacturing? For this, we can provide you with two solutions for your reference.
Add dry organic materials
If the moisture content of chicken dung is lower than 80% and you want to finish water content reduction at a low cost. You can choose to adjust the waster content of manure by adding some materials with low moisture. Such as straw, corn cob, peanut cake, rice husk, etc. You can mix them with chicken manure or pave them on the bottom layer of fermentation groove to absorb excess water. Then the moisture will decrease to 50%-60%, which is suitable for composting.
Use SX dewatering machines
In addition, if you want to remove excessive water from chicken poop quickly and easier, you can use fertilizer dewatering machine directly. It can separate solid chicken manure and water quickly. And after dewatering, the moisture of chicken droppings is about 30%. Moreover, in order to meet the different requirements of customers, we especially design two kinds of manure water remove machines for your choice. They are inclined screen solid-liquid separator and screw dewatering equipment. The former is more suitable for processing materials with low solid content and high water content of over 80%. Such as fresh cow dung, pig manure, horse droppings, wine waste, etc. But for chicken manure processing, which has low moisture content. We recommend you choose screw dewatering equipment.
Which composting machine is a better choice to ferment chicken manure
This Philippine customer was interested in groove type compost turner and vertical fertilizer fermentation tank. And he wanted to know which is more suitable for him to ferment chicken waste. According to the customer’s capacity, there are two types of chicken manure compost machines are recommendatory.
Vertical fertilizer fermentation tank for less space occupation
If you don’t have enough space for chicken manure compost, vertical fertilizer fermentation tank is your optimal option. Only needs 10-30㎡, it can finish material fermentation. And it also can meet your requirement for no secondary pollution. Because vertical fertilizer fermentation tank makes aerobic fermentation in a closed environment. And it has a specialized treatment system for waste gas.
Groove type compost turner for low cost fermentation
If your budget is not enough, we recommend you choose groove type compost turner. It is used in trench compost work. It uses stirring teeth to turn the chicken manure. So the fermentation bacteria can fully contact with oxygen. Then the generated heat will kill harmful substances in chicken manure. In addition, its turning width can reach 2.5-5m, and turning depth of 0.8-1.8m. And combining with transfer vehicle, it can work for multiple grooves. If you want to enlarge production, you only need to increase the number of grooves. Finally, after negotiation, this customer from Philippines choose the groove type turner for his chicken manure fertilizer production line.
The above are details about our communication with the customer from Philippines. Expect chicken manure fertilizer production line, SX fertilizer machinery also can provide you with many other fertilizer making lines. Such as chicken manure composting system, chicken dung pellet making, cow dung fertilizer processing line, etc.
