Micropastillation of caprolactam with the Rotoform process

The size and shape as well as the purification potential of the caprolactam pastilles led to some design improvements of the Rotoformer. With these improvements the granulated material can be produced nearly dust-free, regular in shape and size and therefore easy to handle for further (purification) steps. As the result, SPS is now able to offer a perfect fitted equipment for producing optimised pastilles for further purification steps.

SPS modified the well known Rotoformer equipment so that caprolactam micropastilles with small tolerances with respect to size and shape can be produced. SPS can offer this modified equipment to the chemical industry with a process guaranty.
