The Compacting Process


The Compacting Process

The compacting process is the compressing of fine-sized powders between a roll compactor. The compacted material is then typically reduced in size and screened to specification.

The compacting process includes these steps.

Materials are fed and mixed from the material silo into the compactor. Feed materials are then pressed together into compacts by roll compactors.
The produced compacts are broken into granules and classified into desired particle size. Undersize materials are fed back into the roll compactor while oversize materials are fed back for further size reduction.
Materials of the final desired size and shape are ready for any further finishing, such as drying or anti-caking agent application, and prepped for final packaging.

For over three generations, the KOMAREK name has been associated with the design and manufacturing of briquetting machines, and compaction and granulation systems. Now as a Koeppern Group Company, KOMAREK remains a leading, privately-owned organization dedicated to providing services and equipment for all types of briquetting and compaction/granulation applications.
