A DRY PLANT LIKE NO OTHER…
“A friend of mine once said, churches are built with their busiest day, Easter Sunday, in mind,” – Doyle Pearl, managing owner.
This sound logic spilled over into the design and construction of our new fertilizer plant.
“Our former fertilizer facility was fine, but we needed the ability to load and blend fertilizer faster and more efficiently for the busiest week or two of the year better than we were able to previously.” – Doyle Pearl
Completed in the fall of 2014, the new J.B. Pearl fertilizer building has 3,000 tons of storage capacity across seven different product bins. The previous plant held 800 tons.
At the centerpiece of this new structure is the blend tower. Its’ many features include:
- 120 tons of storage in nine overhead bins, meaning that all products are available for use at all times.
- Twin weigh hoppers which work in 2 pound increments to finely tune custom fertilizer blends.
- Twin Bombay-style doors to move loads from the mixer into a surge hopper, which prevents the segregation of materials.
All of the above design features allow the blend tower to load trucks with 25 tons of custom blended product in as little as eight minutes.
Perhaps the most important part of the new J.B. Pearl blend tower is its High Intensity Mixer (H.I.M.) unit. Situated in the heart of the tower, the H.I.M. is designed to blend and coat fertilizer products thoroughly and gently in a matter of seconds. The H.I.M. dispenses coating in the center of the unit and blends it from both ends in as little as 10 seconds.
