Agglomerate Reduction Technology
The Gericke Nibbler, distributed throughout North America by Powder Technologies, offers the combination of integrated paddles and suitable screens to reduce lumps and agglomerates to the desired size needed for the process. It is suitable to many applications working with raw products such as urea/carbamide/carbonyl diamide, instant breakfast drinks, sugar, plastic chips, disulphide, epoxy resin and magnesium fluoride. Similar to a centrifugal sifter or mill, the machine offers higher torque and force while maintaining a paddle circumferential speed of less than 1m/s. As a result no dusts or fines are formed, allowing it to function effectively in hazardous areas. Products pass vertically from the top of the machine to the bottom and the rotating paddles force the product through the hole in the screen until the desired size granule is achieved. The screen can be pulled out of the machine for easy cleaning, and automatic clean-in-place applications flood and wash the unit.
