Prater Compactor Briquetter

Prater Compactors and Briquetters, available in either heavy or severe-duty versions are versatile and energy-efficient systems for compacting, densifying or briquetting your material. You can rest assured your final product will be in the size, shape and density that you require plus the the solubility and friability you may need.

The process utilizes counter-rotating rolls to densify materials with the application of pressure. Material is transported into the nip area between the rolls by a single or intermeshing multiple screwfeeder. Compression is achieved as the volume of material entering the nip area is squeezed through the rolls. This unique feeding system provides improved compression over competition.

Compacting requires smooth or corrugated press rolls to produce a sheet of densified material. This sheet may be granulated to your desired size. Briquetting utilizes the same principles but uses pocketed rolls to densify and form the material into a specific shape.

Prater Compactor Features:

  • Unique design pre-compacts product prior to reaching nip area
  • Compacts “off spec” fines into good product
  • Turns over 90% of scrap or reject into usable/salable product
  • Converts hazardous or nuisance dust into easier-to-handle forms
  • Reduces volume of waste or excess product
  • Resolves environmental or flow problems
  • Easy Maintenance and Superior roll replacement flexibility
  • Versatile roll and gap adjustments
