Roll Compactor

Briquetting and Granulating System

The Bepex Roll Compactor is a high-pressure agglomerator, able to press fine and often highly aerated solids into larger, cohesive masses with controlled densities. Agglomeration is performed by compressing fine material between two opposed, counter-rotating rolls held under pressure. By utilizing high pressure to agglomerate, you often eliminate the need for a liquid binder and the ensuing drying or curing step required in wet agglomeration. This slots pressure roll compaction as an economical option for particle enlargement, de-dusting, and densification.

The resulting product, whether in briquetting or granulation, is a high-density, dust-free, slow dispersing solid mass. It is often implemented as a dust-control method, whether working to convert hazardous dust into a non-hazardous agglomerate, or densifying fines to provide easier and more economical material transfer or transportation.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Produce a dust-free briquette or granule with consistent density and dispersibility
  • Special design available for compacting low-density feeds
  • Multiple roll designs available for the production of a variety of materials
  • Custom roll designs to match your product size and shape specifications
  • Pre-densifying feeder delivers consistent stream to counter-rotating rolls
  • Optional dust and vapor tight design for product containment and atmosphere control
  • Both rolls are driven by a single motor and double output shaft reducer
  • Vacuum deaeration available to aid in handling highly aerated solids

The Roll Compactor is most commonly employed in one of two general processes; Briquetting or Granulation.

In briquetting, the rolls are furnished with individual pockets of a specified size and shape, matching your requirements. The briquettes are formed in a one-pass process, requiring no additional processing equipment outside of a finishing step if required to clean or smooth the edges of the briquettes prior to packaging.

In granulation, the rolls are typically furnished with a corrugated surface which provides a dense sheet of compacted material, often referred to as flake. Following the Roll Compactor, the flake passes through a sizing circuit, commonly comprising of two separate hammer and screen mills, such as the Bepex Granulator, to produce the required particle size for your granular product.

The Roll Compaction briquetting and granulation system 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 compaction process systems using the right technology. Between our proven industrial process equipment and decades of experience serving a variety of industries, we are able to design an industrial briquetting or granulation system that is right for you.
