LCI’s Pellet Mill Technology

LCI's Pelleting technology is based on Amandus Kahl's Flat Die pellet mills.

LCI is the exclusive representative of Amandus Kahl in the United States for Chemical/Industrial applications. The Kahl pellet press (pellet mill) is used in many applications throughout the chemical, plastics, ceramics, beverage, and other industries.

Material enters the pellet press by gravity and is pressed by rollers through a flat die plate to form dense uniform cylinders. Product densification is varied by adjusting the compression distance in the die.
