High-shear granulator forcompacting powdery foodstuffs

By Gerald Ondrey |

This company has developed a granulator (photo) designed for compacting bulk goods, such as tea, cocoa or coffee. It is based on the mixing granulator type MGT, a vertical system for mixing and granulation of powders and granules. A specially developed compaction tool rotates in the cylindrical mixing vessel at a close distance from the vessel wall and base to achieve the necessary bulk density and a homogeneous mixing quality. In addition, the mixing vessel is equipped with a cooling double jacket to ensure that the full aroma of the material is retained. The product can be flavored in accordance with the recipe parameters directly in the processing vessel of the Mixing Granulator. This process can be carried out manually or automatically. The machine requires only three minutes to mix and compress, for instance, one batch of ground coffee. — Gebr. Lödige Maschinenbau GmbH, Paderborn, Germany
