High Containment Roller Compaction

Precise, clean, fast

High containment levels specially designed for high specification needs and demanding projects.

Benefits of Highly Contained Roller Compaction

The culmination of decades of experience delivers     world-class dry granulation capabilities.

RC-CCS320

High quality results are thanks to our unique dual-screw feed system design which ensures the ideal conditions are created right from the outset at the critical nip area of the rolls.

Our range of CCS Roll Compactors are inherently well sealed with vacuum-tight security. But where even higher containment levels are demanded, our patented Product Containment System (PCS) with nitrogen inerting and security interlock is available.

The robust design gives you a machine with a long lifespan for a solid return on your investment. With minimal components to maintain or clean, production up-time is maximized. 

All CCS models share the same design, making it easier for cleaning and maintenance as knowledge is completely transferable.  Standardized HMI screens enable your Operators to run any machine. Additionally, results on lab and pilot models are directly scalable to larger units.
