Press Release Summary: FEECO can determine the appropriate agglomeration equipment
depending on your production needs

Press Release Body: Green Bay, WI (March 1, 2008) - FEECO International, Inc. has
been designing, manufacturing, marketing and installing (agglomeration, thermal
processing, material handling) equipment and systems throughout the world to a
variety of industries for over 50 years. FEECO designs and manufactures Disc
Pelletizers, Rotary Granulators, Paddle Mixers and Pin Mixers, Compactors, Pug Mills
depending on your production needs. They pride themselves on being a "green" company
because of their ability to bring value through new ideas and processes based on
industry known environmental problems.

The FEECO International Test Laboratory / Pilot Plant provides workable solutions
for your fine material problems. The pilot plant can be set up for testing on a
single piece of equipment or multiple pieces of equipment as a continuous process
loop with agglomeration, drying, sizing, and recycling capabilities. Once desired
results are achieved FEECO lab personnel, working with their design engineers, can
then recommend the best process and equipment combination for production.

FEECO's Disc Pelletizers are the equipment of choice when uniform pellet size and
ease of control are important when converting powdered materials into round
spherical pellets of 500 micron to 20 mm diameter. Their Disc Pelletizer can
agglomerate fine, dry feed materials such as chemical powders, limestone,
fertilizer, coal fines, cement / lime kiln dust and flyash as well as wetter
materials such as filter / centrifuge cake, minerals, ores, vibrating sludges and
pond tailings.

All Disc Pelletizers made by FEECO is constructed of heavy, welded, reinforced
carbon steel plate (A) all inner disc bottoms six feet and larger are lined with
expanded metal to reduce abrasive wear. (B) The disc angle is easily adjusted from
40 to 60 horizontal by a hand-wheel operated jacking screw (C). The base, and (D)
the plow support members provide maximum rigidity while simultaneously allowing
rapid pan angle adjustment, without the need for separate plow adjustment. (E)
Individually mounted vane type plows easily control and maintain the product layer
over the disc's entire surface. Larger pelletizers feature ceramic facings. (F) The
pivot base, a rotating member, is mounted on heavy-duty anti-friction bearings.

FEECO will have a disc pelletizer along with several other pieces of equipment on
display at the Powder Show (Booth 1600) along with technical personnel to discuss
potential applications.
