A single horizontal shaft carrying rows of paddles arranged in an interrupted spiral pattern move material through the cylindrical chamber. Stationary anvils and optional internal die plates prevent material from rotating with the shaft and exerts additional energy into material providing homogeneous blending. Liquid streams may be introduced via one or more inlet ports anywhere along the vessel. The intense mixing results in a consistent paste-like blend just before being forced through extrusion plates at the discharge. When both particle length and diameter are critical, a shaft-mounted or separately driven cutoff knife shears the pellets to a consistent length.
The Extrud-O-Mix low-pressure extruder is just one of the agglomeration technologies we employ to develop industrial process systems that meet your application requirements. At Bepex, we are committed to developing the best agglomeration process systems using the right technology. Between our proven industrial equipment and decades of experience serving the industry, we are able to design an agglomeration system that is right for you.
