Machines for the Chemical Industry

The chemical and physical properties of a product are the result of complex combinations of raw and basic materials, as well as special chemical processes. Raw materials that are processed in the chemical industry, are predominantly solids and defined particle sizes are of great importance when handling the material. Specifically, at the microscopic level, defined particle size has certain min/max limits that must be met. Roller compaction and granulation processes are often used to convert raw materials to a form that allows further processing or end use. With these processes, the physical properties (granule size, particle size distribution, bulk density, granule hardness and active surface) can be manipulated so that commercial use or sale of the resulting product form is made possible.  Compared with powder, granules are characterized by greatly improved flowability and higher bulk density (volume reduction). 


Alexanderwerk offers a comprehensive portfolio of specialized machinery for the chemical industry. This includes machines for research and development as well as for high-performance manufacturing. Our equipment for compaction, granulation, as well as grating and shredding, combines the use of modern production technology and highly-developed feeding and control technologies. This coordination guarantees the accurate and economic production of high-quality granules of sodas, textile dyes, battery compounds, salts, fertilizers, silica, feedstuff, additives and much more.
