Crespotec® Compact is a binding agent for technical applications in the compacting of a variety of different substances (biogenic or mineral particles or fibres), used for improving the physical properties of these substances for further application (e.g. storage, transport, thermal use, recycling).
Crespotec® Compact contributes significantly to the improvement of the green and final strength of compresses, reducing abrasion and breakage. The use of Crespotec® Compact also reduces equipment wear and energy consumption.
Crespotec® Compact is often used as a substitute for petro-chemically-based additives in a number of different industries (e.g. fuel industry, foundry industry, chemical industry, fertilizer industry). Crespotec® Compact burns in an environmentally friendly, CO2-neutral way and is low in odour and smoke.
The compacting processes are usually carried out on so-called die presses (flat and ring-shaped design), roller presses (briquette and/or pupil), vibro presses or punch/chamber presses. A prerequisite for the best possible functionality is a mixing as homogeneously as possible into the raw material to be compacted.
We have developed a special online calculation tool for the optimal dosage of binder and water, the Crespotec® Compaction Optimiser.
