Process design of 3-4 t/h cat litter making machine in New Zealand

Brief description of cat litter production process:

The tofu fiber, corn flour, starch, guar gum and water are conveyed by wind power and sent to the mixer through the elevator (closed type) for mixing and mixing. Then they flow into the silo through the bottom outlet and are transported into the granules through the silo mixing cage.

The granules are extruded by the machine into long strips. At this time, the granules are in a soft and water-containing state and do not produce floating dust. They are transported to the drying unit by the conveyor belt. After drying, they are cooled and transported to the vibrating screen for screening.

Unqualified products pass through the lower screen. Mesh screening, recycling and reuse from the bottom outlet, the finished particles are transported to the automatic packaging machine for packaging, and the production is completed.

  1. Material preparation
    The main raw material of 3-4 t/h cat litter making machine in New Zealand is tofu residue, and also includes a small amount of corn starch, sawdust, cellulose and other auxiliary materials. These materials need to be mixed in a certain proportion and then ground.
  2. Grinding
    After the materials are mixed, they need to be ground by a machine to make the materials softer and more delicate for subsequent processing and shaping. At the same time, impurities can also be removed and the purity of the ground material can be improved.
  3. Processing and forming
    The ground material needs to be processed and shaped. First, the material needs to be compressed and formed into a block. The block material is then cut into small pieces or granules by a machine for subsequent drying and packaging.
  4. Drying
    The processed tofu cat litter needs to be dried to remove the moisture in the material. Usually the drying temperature is controlled at about 130 degrees Celsius and the drying time is about 2 hours. The dried tofu cat litter appears brown or yellow in color and has a hard texture.
  5. Packaging
    The dried tofu cat litter needs to be packaged for storage and transportation. Usually packed in plastic bags, each bag weighs 5-10 kg. During the packaging process, the working environment needs to be kept clean to prevent impurities from entering the tofu cat litter.

All in all, the production process of tofu cat litter is divided into five links: material preparation, grinding, processing and shaping, drying and packaging. During the entire production process, attention must be paid to keeping the production environment clean and hygienic to avoid contamination by impurities.

In addition, the R&D and production technology of 3-4 t/h cat litter making machine in New Zealand are constantly improving and innovating to improve product quality and performance.

Public supporting projects


Water supply

The water for this 3-4 t/h cat litter making machine in New Zealand project is collected from groundwater and relies on existing wells in the factory area. The water used in this project is mainly domestic water and production water.

Domestic water: This project has a working capacity of 10 people and works 300 days per year. The per capita domestic water consumption is calculated as 50L/d per person, then the domestic water consumption is 0.5m3/d and 150m3/a.

Production water: The production water in this 3-4 t/h cat litter making machine in New Zealand project is mainly used as ingredients for cat litter production. The water consumption for cat litter production is 40L/ton of product.

This project has an annual output of 7,600 tons of cat litter, so the water consumption for batching is equivalent to 1.216m3/d, 304m3/a. 80% of the water used for ingredients is lost during the drying process, and 20% enters the product. Therefore, the fresh water consumption of this project is 1.716m3/d, 454m3/a.



The factory area implements a rainwater and sewage diversion system for drainage, and rainwater is discharged through the rainwater pipe network. The wastewater in this 3-4 t/h cat litter making machine in New Zealand project is mainly domestic sewage.

The pollution production coefficient of domestic sewage is calculated according to 0.8, then the production volume of domestic sewage is 0.4m3/d, 125m3/a. The main pollutants are COD, ammonia nitrogen, and total nitrogen, and their production concentrations are 350mg/L and 30mg/L respectively. and 45mg/L.


Power supply

The power supply of this 3-4 t/h cat litter making machine in New Zealand project is drawn from the municipal power grid, and the power supply is sufficient to meet the needs of project construction and production.

The electrical equipment used in this project mainly includes machinery equipment and lighting equipment. The annual electricity consumption of this project is approximately 100,000 kW·h.


Heating and ventilation design

This 3-4 t/h cat litter making machine in New Zealand project uses air conditioning for office heating, ventilation in the workshop mainly through doors and windows, and liquefied petroleum gas as the heat source for drying.

Environmental protection measures


Analysis of atmospheric environmental impact

The dust generated by the loading and mixing of this 3-4 t/h cat litter making machine in New Zealand project is collected by the gas collecting hood, and the drying dust and liquefied petroleum gas combustion exhaust gas are uniformly entered into a set of bag dust collectors for processing, and are discharged through a 15m exhaust pipe.


Acoustic environment impact analysis

The high-noise equipment in this 3-4 t/h cat litter making machine in New Zealand project mainly includes elevators, mixers, cat litter pellet machines, dryers, fans, etc., with sound pressure levels of 75 to 80dB(A). Noise pollution prevention and control measures:

  1. Control the sound source and select equipment with low noise and in compliance with national noise standards. Reduce vibration and enhance routine maintenance of equipment.
  2. The overall layout of the workshop is coordinated and reasonably laid out, and all equipment is arranged indoors.
  3. Arrange working time reasonably and do not arrange processing procedures at night.
  4. The project strengthens the sealing of workshop doors and windows during the production process to increase the sound insulation effect on the noise generated by production equipment, prevent the impact of equipment noise on the Songjia Town Health Center, strengthen employees’ environmental awareness education, provide civilized production, and prevent artificial noise.

Solid waste impact analysis

The solid waste generated by this 3-4 t/h cat litter making machine in New Zealand project mainly includes domestic garbage and general industrial solid waste.

  1. Domestic garbage
    The number of workers in this project is 10, and the domestic waste production coefficient is 0.5kg/person·day, so the domestic waste production volume is 1.5t/a, which will be uniformly removed and processed by the environmental sanitation department.
  2. General industrial solid waste
    The general industrial solid waste generated by this 3-4 t/h cat litter making machine in New Zealand project is mainly waste packaging materials and dust collected by dust collectors.
    The amount of waste packaging materials produced is about 1.5t/a, and the amount of dust collected by the dust collector is about 1.44045t/a. After general industrial solid waste is collected, it is temporarily stored in the general solid waste warehouse in the factory area and is regularly sold centrally.
