How does compaction work?
Step 1. A screw transports the raw materials with vacuum deaeration in the roller unit.
Step 2. The compaction rollers create a sheet of product by high pressure.
Step 3. The flake crusher performs the coarse crushing of the compacted flakes followed by three granulation steps to achieve the final particle size distribution.
