  • Patent number: 3947938
    Abstract: A roll pelletizer as disclosed and claimed in U.S. Patent Number 3,561,051 with rolls consisting of a helically wound strip of resilient material having a reduced depth portion along its length providing grooves in adjacent wraps of the strip, the remaining non-reduced depth portion of the strip defining lands. Opposed compressive rolls of this invention are helically wound with opposite hands so that lands of one roll intermesh or mate with grooves of an opposed roll.

The non-yieldable strip may include right angle tabs spaced at intervals along the length thereof which mate with spaces provided therefor in the grooved portions of the resilient strip.
