Continuous granulation has always been tradition at Lödige. Ring layer mixers of type CM are well-known to perform continuous granulation in many fields. And for continuous dry mixing, the Ploughshare® Mixers are used successfully over years now. But one thing was missing in the portfolio: an appropriate dryer. This gap has now been filled by a new machine of type LCF. Together with the ring layer mixer of type CM and the customer’s dosing technology, this dryer provides a complete continuous granulation line called GRANUCON®.
The dryer LCF works in accordance with the fluid bed process. A general disadvantage of the continuous fluid bed has always been the wide retention time distribution inside the machine. This is why Lödige specialists have now integrated a screw in the fluid bed dryer in order to have certain influence on the retention time distribution. The dryer is designed for throughputs ranging from 5 kg/h up to 30 kg/h depending on the product humidity.
