Briquetting transforms powders, particles, even dust into larger, easy-to-handle shapes and sizes. Bepex’s high-pressure technology means that often no liquid binder is needed, avoiding the added cost of drying and curing.
The Bepex Roll Compactor sets the standard for high-pressure, dry briquette pressing. Customizable to meet any size or shape specification, Bepex equipment is found in a wide variety of applications from charcoal grill briquettes to water softener pellets to turning waste dust into value-added products.
Create New Products
Whether granulating or briquetting, you control the finished product. From altering the particle size and shape in granulation, to producing an exact shape or size briquette, the Bepex Roll Compactor produces shapes of consistent size, density, strength, and solubility.
Compacting dust and powders cuts transportation cost, improves material handling, enhances plant and operational safety, and solves bulk storage issues. Turn hazardous dust into non-hazardous blocks or pellets. Or transform waste dust into value-added products.
Get Trusted, Confidential Support
Our Process Development Center will help you design, test, and quantify the Roll Compactor along with fines screeners, finishing equipment, or other system components needed to meet your processing goals. Developing new products? We’re trusted by Fortune 100 companies to help develop briquetting products using their confidential, proprietary dry binding formulas.
All new inquiries begin with a feasibility study. These studies aim to provide preliminary insights into the viability of a commercial process. Using as little as 100 grams of material, we can begin early process design, develop plans for pilot-testing and/or confirmation, and begin providing early economic estimates. Our experience across our wide range of technologies gives us a unique ability to provide quick feedback on the feasibility of your process.
From our learnings, we’ll begin the process development work. The primary work in this phase takes place in the form of pilot-scale testing in our Process Development Center. Our pilot tests look a bit different than what you may have experienced in the past. Each test is designed to measure the system performance and feasibility rather than that of any single machine.
Each system is custom assembled for each test. Our goal is to provide as much of a pilot-scale simulation as possible while gathering scale-up data to deliver on commercial capacities. When a certain technology proves ineffective, we’ll draw from our range of options to determine if there is a better fit. The Process Development Center is our sandbox to build, test, and revise to ensure we get every detail right.
With a successful pilot simulation completed, we now have everything we need to scale up and provide proposals for capital equipment with included performance guarantees.
System Design And Build
After receipt of the purchase order, we begin with both equipment and system engineering. Each proprietary technology we sell is custom-designed and built per application. We do not have any off-the-shelf units. At this stage, your exact system begins to take shape, including auxiliary equipment, process flow diagrams, process and instrumentation diagrams, safety provisions, and more.
After delivery and installation of your new system, Bepex will provide a mechanical check to ensure everything is placed according to plan. This is followed shortly thereafter by system commissioning. This is where our pilot-scale simulations become invaluable, as our team of application engineers, controls technicians, and sales engineers begin working with your team to successfully bring your system online.
At this point, you’re up and running at rate, producing a quality product, but our work doesn’t stop there.
Following commissioning, Bepex remains a reliable partner, providing quality OEM parts, immediate field service, process optimization, training, system troubleshooting, and more. We have consistently had high customer retention rates, and we believe it is due in large part to our comprehensive approach to serving our customers long after the original sale.
