Compact It

Roll compactors are machines designed to give you an economical, high volume, mechanical means to upgrade or convert fines by agglomeration into salable granular product.


Briquette It

The briquetter is a rugged machine designed specifically for compacting material into briquettes, especially applications requiring high pressures and a variety of shapes and sizes.

Granulate It

The granulator is designed for precise gradual size reduction in one, two, or three stages per unit depending upon the ratio of feed size to desired finished granular particle size.
