What’s Bentonite?

Bentonite is a widely used mineral resource. It has abundant reserves and a wide range of origins. It is also widely used in various industries. One of the characteristics of bentonite is adsorption. With the development of the pet industry, this characteristic of bentonite has also been widely used. Good application, cat litter is a good example.


Bentonite cat litter is a product used for cats’ hygiene needs. It’s made from all-natural bentonite clay, which has excellent moisture absorption and deodorizing properties. As people pay more attention to pets, the bentonite cat litter market has gradually grown.

In addition to making cat litter, bentonite can also be used for adsorption and clarification of feed, organic fertilizer, fuel oil, edible oil, juice, wine, etc. Its other name is “montmorillonite”, which can be used to make medicine. But at Richi Machinery, we can only provide bentonite cat litter pellet machine, bentonite organic fertilizer pellet making machine and bentonite feed pellet machine.

The role of bentonite in cat litter production

As the main raw material of cat litter, bentonite’s main function is to absorb cat’s excrement and urine and form clumps for easy cleaning. At the same time, bentonite clay has strong hygroscopicity and can effectively control the humidity in cat litter and prevent mildew and odor problems.

Issues to note:

  • The quality of raw materials must be stable, especially the quality of bentonite;
  • Control the humidity, temperature and time during the production process to avoid problems of poor drying or overdrying;
  • Pay attention to quality issues during the screening process to ensure that the cat litter produced has no foreign matter and uniform pellets;
  • Packaging must be operated in strict accordance with the requirements and comply with the relevant standards of the country and region where it is located.

Working principle of bentonite granules making machine

Bentonite granules making machine is mainly composed of feeder, conditioner, transmission system, lubrication system and host machine.

Its working principle is:

Working Principle Of Bentonite Granules Making Machine
  • Bentonite powder with a moisture content of no more than 15% enters the feeding auger from the warehouse to be granulated.The appropriate material flow rate is obtained by adjusting the rotation speed of the feeding auger shaft, enters the conditioner, and passes through the conditioning shaft.
  • Stir and mix with steam for tempering. The iron removal device bypasses the chute and enters the ring mold cover. The powder is rolled into the pressing area through the feeding scraper. The transmission shaft drives the ring mold to rotate.
  • The bentonite powder is drawn into the ring mold and pressed. Between the rollers, two relatively rotating parts gradually squeeze the powder into the die hole of the ring die to form, and continue to squeeze out, and then the cutter cuts the pellets into the required length and flows out of the machine.

How to make bentonite pellets? Complete bentonite cat litter pellet production line process

Investing in a set of bentonite cat litter making machine costs tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars. We will reasonably design and configure a bentonite cat litter production line based on customer needs, equipment models, output, etc. The following is a detailed description of the bentonite granules manufacturing process:

Bentonite Cat Litter making Line project
  1. Preparation of raw materials: The raw materials of many customers are different. The main raw materials of common bentonite cat litter are bentonite, attapulgite, clay, water, corn starch and some additives.
  2. Mixing preparation: Mix all the raw materials evenly according to a certain proportion to ensure that the various raw materials are fully mixed. During the mixing process, attention should be paid to controlling the amount of water added to avoid delamination or undesirable caking.
  3. Granulation: To granulate the mixed raw materials, you can choose single-layer conditioner granulator, double-layer conditioner granulator and other bentonite granules making machines, using ring die granulation technology.
  4. Drying: Put the formed cat litter into the drying room to dry. The general drying time is 2-3 hours. During the drying process, attention should be paid to controlling the temperature and humidity to avoid problems such as poor hardness, excessive softness, and poor absorbency of the cat litter.
  5. Screening and packaging: The dried cat litter is screened and packaged, usually using automated packaging lines. During the packaging process, attention should be paid to screening the quality of cat litter to avoid problems such as inclusion of foreign matter.

Different processes have an important impact on the quality and use experience of cat litter. For example, the strength and particle size control in the crushing process will affect the water absorption and caking ability of the cat litter; the temperature and time settings in the drying process will affect the moisture content and dust content of the cat litter.

There are more and more people raising cats. Both the elderly and young people like to keep cats as a kind of sustenance and companionship. It seems that the bentonite cat litter processing industry has a very broad prospect and is a good investment direction. If you need a custom cat litter bentonite making line system designed for your pellet production buisness, we can do that!

Main Power:

  • Bentonite crusher:
    It is the main equipment in the crushing process. Before crushing, 2%-3% sodium carbonate should be added to the bentonite. Its function is to increase the adsorption (water absorption) of the bentonite cat litter. After adding sodium carbonate, it can be mixed evenly through a mixer or feeder, and then processed into a 200-mesh powder through a jaw crusher.
  • Bentonite granulator:
    It is the main equipment in the granulation process. After the bentonite is crushed by the jaw crusher, it enters the bentonite granules making machine for granulation. At this stage, about 0.2% potassium permanganate solution can be added to make the later cat The finished sand has the effect of disinfection and sterilization. Adding 1% water glass solution can increase the cohesion of bentonite powder.
    At the same time, add water drop by drop evenly during the granulation process. Just set the granulated product to 0.8-5mm. At this time, the processed cat litter will be wet, and what we want to take advantage of is the water absorption of cat litter, so we need to carry out the next step of drying.
  • Bentonite dryer:
    Dehydrate and dry the granulated bentonite wet cat litter. The moisture content of the granulated cat litter is about 16%, and we need to use a tumble dryer to reduce the moisture to less than 6%. Since it is dehydrated through high-temperature drying, the freshly dried cat litter has a certain temperature. , at this time, it will be cooled naturally. Since bentonite has strong adsorption, it will absorb a certain amount of moisture during the cooling process. The moisture content of the cooled cat litter is 6%-8%, which is why we need to reduce the moisture to 6%. % instead of dropping directly to 8%.
  • Finished product measurement and packaging equipment:
    Quantitative packaging according to product requirements. The cat litter after drying and cooling is the finished product, but we rarely sell it in bulk when selling. Moreover, leaving the bentonite cat litter in the air for too long will affect the later use effect, so it must be measured and packaged after cooling. Then store in warehouse.
