Clay is frequently agglomerated to improve handling and performance across many applications. Whether you need to create a micro-pelletized product, or you’d like to turn fines into pellets, FEECO can serve all of your clay agglomeration and pelletizing needs with our agglomeration drumsdisc pelletizerspin mixers, and pug mills, as well as our complete pelletizing lines.

Thermal Processing

FEECO offers rotary dryers for removing moisture from clay, as well as rotary kilns and calciners for high temperature clay processing applications.


FEECO also provides a comprehensive line of bulk material handling equipment for all of your clay handling needs. We offer custom bucket elevators, belt conveyors, reversing shuttle conveyors, and steep incline conveyors, along with pieces to increase the flexibility of your handling system, such as belt trippers and plows, and belt feeders.

We can supply a single piece of handling equipment to fit into your existing process, or a complete bulk handling system as part of an overall process solution.


The FEECO Innovation Center is a unique testing facility where we can test your material at both batch and pilot scale in order to work out process variables and design commercial-scale units, as well as scale up the process.

The FEECO Innovation Center is well-equipped to suit a wide range of testing needs, from pelletizing and drying to high temperature thermal processing, as well as continuous process loops integrating multiple testing methods.

We offer comprehensive testing services in four categories:

Feasibility/Proof of Concept: An initial, non-witnessed batch testing phase in which the possibility of creating a product is explored.

Proof of Product: A more in-depth batch testing phase in which more time is spent determining whether a product can be made to desired specifications.

Proof of Process: A continuous testing phase that aims to establish the equipment setup and parameters required for continuous production of your specific material.

Process/Product Optimization: An in-depth study to optimize your specific material’s characteristics and/or production parameters in an industrial setting.
