- Offer Profile
- SALMATEC supplies equipment
for producing pellets and crumbs.
"Salzhausener Maschinenbautechnik SALMATEC GmbH" was founded in 1972 and has
been manufacturing pelleting systems and spare parts for all known makes of
pelleting machines ever since.
The company's reputation has been built on offering a very high standard of
technical advice on projects and also offering a well organized and
efficient service department.
Machine construction – Made in Germany
SALMATEC Salzhausener Maschinenbautechnik GmbH stands for machine
construction made in Germany – this means perfect quality at the
Machines and processes for pelleting have been developed and
produced in Salzhausen in the most diverse industries for over 40
years now. SALMATEC pelleting presses and the corresponding
components such as molasses mixers, conditioners or thermoscrews are
used successfully worldwide.
SALMATEC pelleting units guarantee a high level of reliability in
the production process combined with low production costs.
System construction: Planning and implementation
SALMATEC is a manufacturer of pelleting presses and peripheral
equipment that is part of a complete production line.
However, SALMATEC also assists in the planning, construction and
implemention of entire production lines. In addition to conveying
and metering devices, this also includes refrigeration systems,
screening machines, product containers and much more. It goes
without saying that you will need a top-class control system for the
best possible production with our machines and systems. Please feel
free to ask any questions, we are happy to help.
Everything from a single source
SALMATEC would be happy to plan and support you in implementing your
ideal production unit.
Cost-effective and safe to operate
SALMATEC pelleting presses from the Maxima series have a modular
design and can be adapted perfectly to the most diverse
The different operating conditions that a pelleting press is
subjected to during production of pellets make high demands on
construction and production.
That’s why SALMATEC pelleting presses are made exclusively of
high-quality materials and of course comply with the latest safety
standards and guidelines.
The capacity per hour may amount to up to 50t depending on the type
of machine and area of application.
Double pelleting in the smallest of spaces.
Maxima-Duplex is composed of two Maxima pelleting presses and
ensures the highest pellet quality while simultaneously enhancing
performance and ensuring greater flexibility.
And the special thing about it: Both Maxima pelleting presses also
work individually or can be adapted to one another. The method of
operation can be adjusted simply by using the pneumatically
adjustable flap control device.
Guarantee homogeneous mixtures
SALMATEC conditioners from the SALMACON series guarantee the
omogeneous mixing of basic components and the controlled addition of
additives such as steam, molasses, water and many others.
The conditioners made from stainless steel from the SALMACON series
ensure a continuous flow of materials with their product-related
design. It goes without saying that these conditioners offer the
best possible mixing result with the lowest possible delays.
Like all SALMATEC products, the conditioners from the SALMACON
series conform to the latest safety regulations and guidelines.
Stable and flexible
The stable steel housing is made entirely out of stainless steel.
The solid round shaft material and the mixing paddles are also made
of stainless steel. All product contact materials are made from the
highest quality materials.
The amount of retention time can be set using the adjustable angle
of the mixing paddle. The speed of the drive can also be changed and
individual requirements can be adapted.
The inspection port extends across the entire width of the mixing
On request, the conditioners can be equipped with wear-resistant or
non-stick coated linings.
Our broad product range offers the right mixer for all requirements.
Two mixing shafts offer a great mixing effect
The SALMATEC molassing machines are designed for admixing large
amounts of liquid
The opposing and rapidly rotating mixing shafts guarantee a great
mixing effect and high throughput.
Immediately after the mixing process has been completed, the product
can be coated in the same machine. This happens in what is known as
the expansion stage. The mixed material is powdered with unmixed
material. This prevents the subsequent conveyor units from sticking
Like all SALMATEC products, the molasses mixers from the SALMACON
series also conform to the latest safety requirements and
- Two opposing mixing shafts with overlapping paddles.
- The mixer paddles can be adjusted to the shaft. The special
arrangement of the mixer paddles on the shaft ensures that they
- All product contact parts are manufactured from high-quality
SALMATEC offers a ZE version for each SALMACON for powdering the molasses with untreated material.
It goes without saying that steam can also be added.
All double shaft mixers from the SALMACON series are also suitable as conditioners for adding high amounts of steam.
Competitive advantages offered by heat treated
The SALMATHERM screws for heat treatment of the compound feed create
competitive advantages and reduce operating costs at the same time.
SALMATHERM enable compound feed pellets to be produced with
increased steam temperatures and with a long retention time.
The pelleting pressed material becomes smoother as a result of the
extensive and homogeneous steam admixing process and is easier for
the downstream pelleting presses to process and at the same time
provides improved pellet quality.
The feed is heat treated in the SALMATHERM for two to four minutes
by controlled retention. This process kills the spoilage
Like all SALMATEC products, it goes without saying that the
SALMATHERM also conform to the latest safety requirements and
Dies and rollers
Best requirements for your quality
SALMATEC produces dies and rollers at its site in Salzhausen for all
pelleting presses and also for products of other manufacturers of
All dies and rollers are made from high-quality, wear-resistant
special steels. The choice of material is dependent on its intended
The dies can be manufactured individually for any pellet diameter
required. This means that SALMATEC is able to produce dies for all
SALMATEC rollers can also be adapted individually to the appropriate
pelleting materials. This makes it possible to produce the roller in
a number of different surface patterns and with a customised design.
We offer a perforated or fluted design. A combination of a fluted
surface with lateral rows of holes. It can also be saw-tooth fluted
or diagonally fluted with the option of open or closed edges.
Areas of application for pelleting units
- SALMATEC supplies product-specific pelleting units and
also the corresponding peripheral equipment: from individual presses to
For pellets and granulates made from plastic, wood, dusts, mixtures...
- The quality requirements for the compound feed to be
produced are becoming increasingly stringent and new laws and regulations
are sometimes presenting difficult challenges for manufacturers of compound
feed. In order to be able to meet these demands and requirements in the
future too, SALMATEC has developed special machines and processes to go
alongside the tried-and-tested pelleting presses.
Renewable raw materials
- Processing of renewable raw materials for thermal use is
becoming increasingly significant. However, high raw material and energy
costs are causing the margins to decrease. It is absolutely essential to use
technology which improves operating costs.
- Raw material resources are finite on our planet. That’s
why efficient recycling of raw materials is becoming more and more
important. In an attempt to make the recycling process profitable and
cost-effective, an increasing number of pelleting presses are being used for
manufacturing granulates or for comminution.
- Processing food products such as instant powder, spices,
coffee or tea for example imposes particular demands on a pelleting unit.
That’s why only high-quality materials are used at Salmatec to meet the high
requirements of the food industry..
