LCI's Basket Granulator Extruder is the lowest pressure extruder available. The wet mix, which is typically prepared in a kneader, pug mixer or high shear granulator (pharma), is metered into the feed hopper by a feeder or hand fed. Materials are gravity fed into the granulator and are wiped through perforated screens by extrusion blades creating cylindrical extrudates of a controlled diameter. Extrudates then fall onto a rotating table for discharge to the next processing step.

Features and Benefits

  • Uniform extrusion pressure across entire screen area
  • Easy disassembly for cleaning 
  • Adjustable discharge chute location
  • Easy scale-up
  • High yield
  • Better particle size distribution
  • Improved flowability
  • Excellent process repeatability
  • Minimal holdup volume
