More control, more profit
Improve your new or existing processing plant with the most robust, energy-efficient and cost-effective finishing technology in the world: prilling.
Prilling is a proven and extremely effective finishing technology. In the prilling process, a liquid melt is sprayed to produce droplets falling through a countercurrent cooling medium and therefore crystallizing into spherical solids, also referred to as prills. Prilling offers you many advantages over other solidification methods, such as granulation or flaking.
Prilled solidification section
At Kreber we design, construct and support prilling equipment for international processing and chemical companies. A breakdown of our full package for a prilled solidification section:
- Formation of prills
Prills of your melt are formed inside the prilling machine by a prilling nozzle, also known as a prilling bucket or prilling head.
- Cooling of prills
To solidify prills need to have sufficient cooling time. Inside the prilling tower droplets are sprayed in a counter-current stream of the cooling medium. More about prilling tower process.
- Collection of prills
The freshly formed prills are gently collected with a prill scraper, available in two standard configurations; horizontal and conical.
- Handling of prills
The collected prills are offloaded from the prilling tower via a chute. Most common handling solutions for further transport to storage or packaging facilities comprise screw conveyors, belt conveyors, bucket elevators or air lifting systems.
- Special options
We offer various accessories to optimize production, including an explosion suppression system, de-dusting unit and an anti-icing system.
Our repetitive business statistics and extensive company portfolio, reflect a high degree of trust in the performance of our prilling equipment. We have taken that trust to the next level, by offering the Kreber Performance Guarantee.
