Gear Pelletiser

The Alpine Compaction Gear Pelletiser produces cylindrical pellets with good handling and dosing properties through press granulation. Pellets of a uniform size and shape and smooth surface are produced – often prior to a secondary spheronisation process.

  • The nozzles are easy to change, it is simple to adjust the diameter and length of pellets to produce a wide variety of products
  • Easy access to the rolls makes cleaning and nozzle replacement simple and fast
  • The rolls can be heated up and cooled down.
  • High pressure and shear forces reduce the use of binders to fuse particles
  • Dust free operation
  • Batch or continuous operation
