Successful Compaction Technology Demonstration

On March 6th & 7th Hosokawa Micron Powder Systems partnered with Virto/Elcan and K-Tron for an in-house, live demonstration and seminar called “Advances in Material Handling & Compaction Technology”.  More than 100 guests from as far as Chile attended the event. The program focused on equipment and technology used for dry powder compaction and granulation, screening and recycling, and feeding and conveying of materials.  

Hosokawa demonstrated the Hosokawa Pharmapaktor, a pilot scale, pharmaceutical grade compaction system & the Hosokawa Flake Crusher, a post compaction granulator.

Virto/Elcan demonstrated various screening and separation devices covering a wide range of material handling options. K-Tron demonstrated different feeders inline with a conveying system and a screening deck.
