A wealth of knowledge and experience.
Successful for decades
If there’s one substance for which we have more than earned our spurs, it’s prilling urea. We have acquired a high level of knowledge and experience with urea in the past few decades, especially in the fertilizer market. And we would be happy to share that knowledge and experience with you.
Kreber designs, constructs and supports high-quality prilling equipment for international chemical companies. With more than 50 years of experience, an impressive track record and a top team of researchers and engineers, we can be called an absolute authority in the field of prilling.
Major new developments
Our R&D team is continuously working on improvements of the prilling technology. One of the major developments is the Vibro prilling. Adding a vibration to the melt has proven to result in more uniform prills with a defined narrow prill size distribution and lower dust formation.
Prills of urea in bulk offers significant advantages:
- Excellent 'free flowing' properties
- Low tendency to stick and agglomerate
- Distinguished for air lifting
- Highly resistant to abrasion and damage
- Minimal dust formation
- Excellent for storage in silo installations
- Precise dosage
- No additives needed; pure materials
more control, more profit
Prilling urea offers the following advantages over other solidification methods such as granulation:
Prilling is one of the most economical finishing technologies in the world for large outputs. Compared with other solidification methods such as granulation and pastillation, Capital Expenditures and Operating Expenditures will be multiple times lower at increased capacities.
Prilling makes it easy to scale up or down capacity in a range of 70-110% of the original design capacity. That makes it an extremely flexible part of your total production process. Quickly adapt to changes in the market? With prilling you can.
The high degree of ‘self-control’ makes prilling a robust finishing technology with a very stable processing procedure. It can therefore play a vital role in guaranteeing the continuity of your process and quality of your product.
The prilling process requires minimal energy consumption. In fact: it is the most energy-efficient solidification technology available. This helps you to minimize your operational expenses.
Prilling equipment is easy to operate. Due well defined process operating parameters and small number of equipment items. As a result you benefit from low operating and maintenance costs.
With the design of our prilling tower and additional prilling equipment, you benefit from a relatively small footprint compared to other solidification technologies.
Thanks to a constant stream of technical innovations, such as state-of-the-art air inlet filtration and scrubber technologies, prilling is now a much cleaner finishing technology than it ever has been.
Over the years, we have built up an impressive track record. Get your copy of our ever-growing prilling reference list.
