Mars Mineral is a leader in the design, manufacturing and servicing of manure pelletizing systems that help poultry farmers dispose of their animal waste in a manner that is environmentally safe and profitable. The systems include pin agglomerators, disc pelletizers or deep drum pelletizers.
For more than 40 years, the technology we are using to pelletize poultry manure has been employed primarily for agitation agglomeration -- the conversion of fine powders and dusts into spherical pellets. Over the past decade, we have established a presence in the poultry production market while continuing to serve customers in the steel, foundry, chemical, mining, cement, lime and fertilizer, and consumer products manufacturing sectors.
Our equipment and services are backed by solid experience, an engineering staff qualified in material handling, a veteran technical support group and in-house manufacturing expertise.
Regardless of your specific application, we have the experience to meet your needs while exceeding your expectations.
With federal Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFO) regulations in effect, the time is right for you to consider pelletizing your poultry waste and creating a new revenue source while complying with potentially burdensome government rules which are being updated continually.
Mars Mineral's Manure Pelletizing Systems give you everything necessary to make pellets for sale to fertilizer users such as agricultural production companies, independent farmers, golf courses and commercial landscapers, and "middle men" who deal with companies that use or sell fertilizer.
Our systems enable you to process from 500 to 50,000 tons (100 million pounds) of poultry waste annually.
The pelletizing process captures agriculturally valuable nutrients and minerals that originate from grain-based feed, along with organic material and humus to produce a certified organic fertilizer.
Mars Mineral is capable of designing customized manure pelletizing systems to almost any specification. Systems may include pin agglomerators, disc pelletizers or deep drum pelletizers.
Your Mars Mineral Manure Pelletizing System can enable you to generate significant new revenue from a waste material in five easy steps:
The Pin Mixer receives dried chicken manure 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 organic fertilizers and soil amendments with superior moisture retention properties, depend on our Pin Mixer PRO-CM.
With a capacity to produce 0.3 to 50 tons of pellets per hour, the Pin Mixer PRO-CM can help you:
The Pin Mixer PRO-CM features carbon or stainless steel construction, as well as variable frequency drives to help you maximize productivity.
