With the Gear Pelletizer cylindrical, stable pellets with uniform length are formed. The gear pelletizer is also known as the low pressure extruder or pelleting machine. This process is known as extrusion.
The extrusion takes place by a pair of counter rotating hollow toothed rollers. The product is drawn in by the rollers and pressed by nozzle bores or press nozzles. After the product has been pressed into the press channels, it leaves the inner side of the toothed rollers as cylindrical pellets.
The compression is determined by the relationship of the nozzle diameter to the nozzle length. The nozzle diameter is in the limits of 1 to 10 mm. According to the property needed through-hardened pellets or pellets just hardened on the outside can be produced.
The Gear Pelletizer can be run dust and gas-tight. Operation with inert gas and with solvents in possible without any problems.
