Briquetting Rolls

Briquetting, where raw materials are pressed between matched rotating rolls with machined pockets to create a desired product shape, is a common process in many high volume industrial, food, and pharmaceutical applications. While the specifications for wear, corrosion, or thermal properties may vary from application to application, the soundness and consistency of rolls produced using the centrifugal process is always demanded. MetalTek metallurgists help customers select alloys with the correct thermal conductivity properties to process materials at the desired temperature. Heavy walled roll construction lets customers process dense materials. MetalTek’s experience casting CDA 815 chrome copper for food applications gives customers a material that is readily machinable to ensure consistent product dimensions and long tool life.
