Prater’s industrial processing equipment has become extremely beneficial for companies of all sizes to provide reliable particle management solutions.

The “Why”:

The “Why” should always proceed with the “What.” Providing solutions is the core of why Prater exists. When we ask the question, Why do we exist? the answer is “Prater brings people together to provide process solutions that feed, nurture, and house the world.”

The “What”:

After defining the why, we move on to the “What.” “What” does Prater do? We develop and provide innovative, tailored material size reduction, separation, and process solutions.

Applications for Size Reduction

We truly understand the wide array of applications that are necessary for a successful, superior product that can be easily adapted across many industries, such as food, baking, chemical, mineral, pharmaceutical, agricultural, and feed.

From size reduction, feeding, separation, classification, compaction, toll processing, automated solutions, and weighing and batching, their equipment and systems are ideal for many industries. We have helped to consistently improve customers’ products and utilize technological advancements to ensure the most optimal results.


Wherever dry free-flowing powders, granules, crystals, or pellets are used, our rotary valves perform well in a wide range of industry applications.


Have applications that need reduction from between 6″ to sub-micron size? Choose one of our fine grinders, air classifying mills, hammer mills, or lump breakers.


Have applications that require sifting/scalping, screening, grinding, or classifying? Our rotary sifters, vibratory screeners, and air classifiers are customized to your specifications.


Bundle your milling, grinding, and sifting equipment into an entire system. We offer a single point of contact from initial consultation through installation and commissioning.
