The Kompaktor® K is mainly used for powder processing in the chemical industry. However, this Kompaktor is also used in the pharmaceutical industry. Here active ingredient mixtures are processed into granules.
For this the powder is first pressed into flakes/pellets. These are often crushed with a Flake Crusher or Screening Granulator into granulate.
The Kompaktor K offers a stable, parallel roller gap over the whole press force.
A one-sided excess compression is avoided because of this. Therefore this machine is particularly suited to pressure-sensitive products.
The Kompaktor K is equipped with a press force control as standard. The quality relevant press force can be continually logged and controlled. Therefore the process can be validated.
