  • Patent number: 10022899
    Abstract: A double belt press having a first, lower circulating plastic belt and a second, upper circulating plastic belt. The plastic belts have a first, low flexural strength, and a product gap is formed between facing strands of the plastic belts for forming a plate-like product. A first circulating lower steel belt and a second circulating upper steel belt are provided and have a second flexural strength which is high in comparison to the flexural strength of the plastic belts. A forming section is formed between the facing strands of the steel belts, which forms part of the product gap. The first, lower steel belt runs parallel and bears against a rear face of the first plastic belt in the forming section during operation, and the second upper steel belt runs parallel and bears against a rear face of the second plastic belt in the forming section during operation.

  • Patent number: 9366485
    Abstract: A method for producing tablets containing ammonium nitrate, including dripping a product melt containing ammonium nitrate with a drop former having a rotating, pierced drum and a nozzle strip contacting an inner face of the pierced drum, so that the product melt is pressed through openings of the pierced drum. The method additionally includes placing the product drops on a circulating cooling conveyor belt, and solidifying the product drops during the transport on the cooling conveyor belt by cooling and removing the solidified product drops from the cooling conveyor belt.
