Size reduction and deagglomeration
Nibblers are used as part of many processes, often directly integrated into the product stream. Main process uses are:
- Deagglomeration after drying, spraying and mixing etc.
- After storage in silos.
- Below big bag stations, tipping stations, sacks, drums and containers where compaction may occur.
- Before secondary processing including micronizing, milling, grinding and feeding.
- Before pneumatic or mechanical conveying.
- Reprocessing/reclaiming of oversize or off-spec materials.
- After band driers.

- Consistent particle size and high throughput with lower heat generation than traditional grinding solutions
- Very short downtime with easy to clean design features giving full access from both sides with an optional extractable drive
- Features allowing quick inspection and changing of the main screen
- Minimum product temperature rise and fines generation due to low rotational speed and by use of a cutting action rather than creating excess heat by grinding
- Easy adjustment of paddle / cutting screen clearance for maximum process flexibility
- Metal to metal contact detection for maximum process safety (standard with ATEX version)
- EHEDG design conformity, wash-out and wash-in-place seals
- ATEX versions for gas and dust environments (also combined)
- Highly efficient, low power consumption and low noise emission levels
