On May 29th, 2022, we received an inquiry from a prospective client in South Africa. He operates a fertilizer plant and was keen on enhancing his production capabilities to meet the growing demand for water-soluble granular fertilizer. Also, his main interest was in our granulation equipment, along with other auxiliary equipment.

What Are Fertilizer Manufacturing Requirements of South African Customer?

Our South African client was no newbie in the fertilizer production industry with many years of experience. So he was clear about their needs. In fact, his company aimed to produce granular compound fertilizer at an approximate capacity of 2 tons per hour. Additionally, for water-soluble fertilizer, he said they typically use urea, diammonium phosphate, potassium sulfate, and other trace elements. Besides, he expressed interest in other machinery integrating granular fertilizer processing to enhance fertilizer effectiveness.

How to Make Compound Granular Fertilizer in South African Commercial Project?

Ⅰ. Optimal Fertilizer Granulator Choice Model

2 TPH Model Double Roller Press Granulator

Based on this client’s requirements and production target, our double roller extrusion granulator (ZAR95,000 or $5,000) with 2t/h capacity is perfect for this task. Because it is suitable for the process of forming particles from powder or granular raw materials by rolling, enabling the production of uniform and dense granular fertilizers. Due to the use of dry powder granulation technology, there is no need to add any adhesive, and no sewage and exhaust gas emission during the production process. And we will install dust covers on the belt conveyors.

Ⅱ. Machines for Simple NPK Fertilizer Granulation Line

Alongside, we also suggested other equipment to create an efficient production line. Firstly, the batching machine with 4 bins, about ZAR280,000 ($15,000), accurately measures the NPK ratio, ensuring a consistent and premium quality of the end fertilizer product. Secondly, the horizontal fertilizer mixer, available for ZAR31,000 ($1,650), is a cost-effective solution that efficiently mixes all the NPK materials to create a uniform compound.

Thirdly, the rotary drum fertilizer screener, at ZAR32,000 ($1,700), is crucial for the quality control process. It sieves the granulated fertilizer, ensuring the uniformity of the granules and removing any oversized or undersized particles. Finally, the packing machine, priced at ZAR75,800 ($4,000), accurately weighs the granulated NPK fertilizer and packs it into bags, ready for distribution. This machine not only increases the production speed but also reduces labor costs.

Thus, in addition to the roller compactor granulator, these machines form a simple and efficient production line, contributing to a streamlined process and a consistently high-quality granular water-soluble fertilizers. As a result, our client obtained a comprehensive solution that met all his production needs.

A Deal with Exceptional Service from Yushunxin!

Ⅰ. Successful Transaction Process

After the initial inquiry on May 29th, 2022, the South African customer visited our factory in China on June 12th, 2022. During this visit, the client had the opportunity to witness our production process, the quality of our equipment, and our professional service. Moreover, we offered factory prices and ready stock for him. And our engineers informed him these machines are shipped as a whole, eliminating the need for installation. And the equipment is steel-wire bound to prevent damage during transportation. Therefore, they were extremely satisfied with the proposed plan and made the decision to purchase on June 15th, 2022. All in all, this transaction was successful, with a total price at ZAR712,500 ($38,150USD) after applying a certain discount, including all equipment with belt conveyors and transportation costs.

Ⅱ. Appropriate Transportation Plan

After confirming the transaction, we began preparations for delivery. Before shipping, we provided a trial run video of the equipment, so the client is at ease. Furthermore, We estimated a shipping cost of ZAR53,000 or $2,800, and the total transit time was around 35-40 days.

At the beginning, we would send these equipment in a container from our factory on June 30th, 2022, first to the port of Shanghai. From there, they were transported via sea route to Durban port in South Africa. Upon arrival in South Africa in August 5th, 2022, the client arranged transport to their factory in Johannesburg.

As the equipment was shipped as a whole and did not require installation, he was able to begin using them in their factory immediately. Therefore, by August 10th, 2022, the machines were in operation at the South African customer’s fertilizer factory, located just outside of Johannesburg.
