IPA specializes in designing and manufacturing turnkey roller compaction systems for industrial applications – Equivalent to the Fitzpatrick Chilsonator.

The IPA Roll Compaction system consists of the roll compactor, mill, screener, and elevator/conveyor. Its twin feed screw design is more efficient and ideal for processing lighter, bulk density powders which contain large amounts of air. The HFS controls the system throughput while the VFS is separately adjusted to remove air from a variety of feed materials. This design feature allows for lower(cooler) processing temperatures. Our custom designed PLC control system can integrate with your up and down stream equipment and has the ability to communicate with your local DCS.

Our team will work directly with your engineers to customize a roll compaction system that meets your design specifications. Unit sizes are available for rates as low as 100 kgs/hr to 5000 kgs/hr based on product density and product yield.

IPA’s bucket elevator is sturdy, reliable, and dust tight for 24/7 operation – one of the best in the industry. Its unique vertical design compliments our roll compactor system as it provides a uniform blend of recycle and fresh feed to the rolls. This elevator is designed to be low maintenance, with hinged doors allowing easy access for dry cleaning. An additional benefit of using IPA’s vertical bucket elevator over other forms of product conveying includes lower annual operating costs.
