Dual conditioning with CRT and CM conditionersANDRITZ conditioning system


ANDRITZ offers four different series of conditioners that ensures optimum preparation of the material before the pelleting or extrusion process.

Correct conditioning of a material is necessary in order to obtain a good pellet quality and an effective utilization of the pelleting or extrusion installation. Optimum conditioning results in the desired activation of natural binders by using heat, moisture, and time. The ANDRITZ range of conditioners comprises single or dual conditioning.
