CPM, a leading solutions provider of process equipment and engineered technologies, has announced the acquisition of Innovative Pelleting Solutions GmbH and its high-capacity, direct drive pellet mill technology invented by Graf Equipment GmbH.
The new technology brings to the CPM biomass portfolio a high capacity, direct drive pellet mill capable of processing various biomass feedstocks.
The move demonstrates CPM’s commitment to its customers looking for higher-capacity, more energy efficient biomass machines, according to the company.
The all-new Direct Drive technology is beneficial for several reasons, it added.
The force from the pellet mill motor is directly driven to the machine which reduces the need for other mechanical components, thus offering a smaller footprint and simplified maintenance.
Higher torque produces denser pellets. The technology is more sustainable as it lowers the use of grease due to its low vibration and low die speed which also preserves the longevity of machine parts.
With three types of pellet mill solutions, CPM’s biomass equipment portfolio is expansive and offers flexible for customers to plan optimal processing operation.
“We are steadily and systematically expanding our biomass technology portfolio and are well-positioned to supply and service the global biomass market,” said Maarten Visser, general manager, Industrial Solutions.
“This direct drive pellet mill is the only one of its kind in the biomass industry today. Our customers asked for a higher capacity, lower energy pellet mill with a small footprint, and we listened.”
