Larger particles are retained on the screen, while smaller particles fall through the screen to ensure consistency of particles. And in the process of screening, the screening machine can help you remove substandard impurities, like stones, metal pieces or other foreign bodies. This is helpful to ensure the purity of raw materials and guarantee the basic quality of the litter with this step.

After sifting standard particles, then you can use a fertilizer mixing machine to mix the materials and additives. You can add additives such as activated carbon, spices, and antibacterial agents that can enhance the ability of cat litter.

After mixing the materials with additives, belt conveyor will transport them into a granulation machine. You can choose a rotary drum granulation plant, a double roller extrusion granulator, or a disc pelletizing. During granulation, you can control the parameter to produce cat sand you want.

After granulating, the cat litter will be conveyed into a drying machine to reduce the extra moisture content. This is helpful to produce high quality cat sand. And then, kitty litter will transported into a cooling machine, which can help to maintain the nutrients of cat litter. And the last step of cat litter production line is packaging.
