Bulk Goods Granulator for Compacting Powdery Foodstuff
Lödige Process Technology has developed a granulator especially for compacting powdery foodstuff such as tea or cocoa and coffee. The innovation 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, states the company.
The machine requires only three minutes to mix and compress, for instance, one batch of ground coffee. Even product changes are quick and simple: The machine is designed for quick, manual dry cleaning. Experience has shown that this takes approximately 15 minutes, adds the firm. The system is designed to fit seamlessly into the production line.
