ANDRITZ vacuum coating system

Vacuum coater

The ANDRITZ vacuum coating system provides accurate control of vacuum pressure, liquid addition and cycle time to allow flexibility and repeatability in terms of degree of absorption and penetration.

Extruded pellets have a very porous inner structure. It is within the pores of this internal structure that added liquid is retained. The objective of vacuum coating is to use a pressure differential to force liquids through the outer layer and deeply into the porous area of the pellet.
