What is (contract) pastillation?
During pastillation, molten products are transformed into granules. With the help of modern equipment, this is done at Ebbecke in Bruchköbel as pastilles, scales or coarse flakes, depending on customer requirements. By continuously converting the molten starting product into granulate form by means of cooling belts, we achieve an efficient conversion process.
Depending on the product, industry and requirements, Ebbecke works with different feeding systems such as the rotator process. Additional equipment for grinding, breaking or crushing is not necessary. In the production of flakes, these are integrated in the machines. This lowers energy consumption, protects the environment and reduces costs.
In roller technology, the focus is on an internally geared hollow roller with holes in the gaps between the cogs. The intermeshing of the hollow and press roll ensures that the pastilles are evenly dispensed via the holes in the hollow roll. As soon as the teeth of the hollow roll and press roll slide out of engagement, a vacuum is created for a short moment, which favors the pastillation of ropy products.
