“Particle size enlargement” – Compacting, briquetting and pelleting with roll type presses entails more than just the design of the machines.
Understanding specific applications and developing optimum solutions can only be achieved with expert experience in process engineering.
Bühler is familiar with the problems in handling powders, dusts and slurries. Flakes, briquettes and pellets provide dust-free products, good flow and metering properties as well as a higher bulk density.
With particle size enlargement the handling problems can be reduced substantially, whether antibiotics, filter dusts, fertilizers or metal chips are processed.
