COMPACTION / GRANULATION
© Ebbecke Verfahrenstechnik
Our compactor systems made of stainless steel usually consist of the product feed to the roll, a venting unit by means of vacuuming and counter-rotating rolls with infinitely adjustable press force and speed regulation. The pressed flakes are pre-granulated, followed by fine granulation and screening of the fine fraction with continuous recirculation of the screened fine grain.
By combining the granulator systems with screen inserts, oversize and undersize grain limitations can be defined. This enables us to produce a final product for our customers which, thanks to its uniform grain shape and grain statics, has homogeneous flow, as well as consistent bulk and compacted density properties. This forms the basis for all subsequent processing of the product to become complication-free, which is also reflected in its perfect dosability.
Our roll compactor offers the process engineering solution for the processing of products with particularly low dust emission, because with the Roll Compactor powdery components can be compacted to granulate in a very dust-reduced way. The press force of the Roll Compactor is infinitely variable. In addition, part of the system is equipped with pre-compaction by means of vacuum infeed.
Our process engineers have several options to modify both the shape and the properties of the end product to meet our customers’ requirements. For example, our pelletizing systems permit the granulation of products with difficult flow characteristics and the production of end products with a defined hardness. The surface hardness and thus the abrasion behavior can also be specifically influenced.
Our strength is our process engineering know-how combined with state-of-the-art machinery. We are therefore not only the right partner for our customers for standard contract compaction processes, we are rather the ones happy to help customers from all over Europe when things get complicated and demanding. This competence is bundled in our technical centers, where we carry out preliminary tests and trial runs together with our customers.
Actually, the range of customer wishes and industry requirements in the field of contract compaction is wide – but at Ebbecke Verfahrenstechnik AG, individually tailored solutions are developed. As a result, our customers receive an efficiently manufactured product that exactly meets the desired technical specifications.
Ebbecke doesn’t distribute own materials but works within the framework of the TIM-concept (Total Industrial Management) as a partner to the industry. Our employees know that our industrial partners have worked hard to create product properties and process technologies. They also know that this intellectual property often forms the capital stock of a business model or a successful product. Customer, product and contract compaction data are therefore treated with the utmost confidentiality and discretion at Ebbecke.
