State-of-the-art solutions for maximum end-product fineness values: Comminution technology as a quality factor in the manufacture of carbon black
Managers know that inaccurate particle size analysis can create dangerous working conditions for operators and lead to out-of-spec production, affecting safety, reliability and profitability.
How can I improve my size reduction equipment's throughput?
When considering optimization of one’s size reduction equipment, it is important to consider not only the mill itself but the ancillary equipment as well.
Briquetting is the most economical way to eliminate dust, increase weight and improve handling characteristics of dry powders. Removing of dust reduces the hazardous risk for operator and avoid dangerous working conditions. Higher weight reduces transport and storage costs. Dust free materials have better flowing and storage properties.
Hosokawa Mikro Air Jet Sieve model MAJSx is one of the world’s leading powder analysis instruments, offering a simple, accurate, repeatable analysis. The MAJSx is easy to operate with on-screen instructions to assist users with frequent, fast testing. This “Hands-On” course is highly recommended to individuals who desire to achieve maximum performance of their Air Jet Sieve.
A new method of lyophilization or freeze drying that uses a single, closed vessel to deliver lump free, fine powder product has the capability to revolutionize the production of bulk pharmaceutical powders. With the benefits of improved operator safety, reduced equipment requirements and high quality, contaminant free end product results, the proven, Active Freeze Drying technology, from Hosokawa Micron B.V., is making pharmaceutical manufacturers worldwide reconsider their existing tray type freeze drying methods.
Enough plastic is thrown away each year to circle the earth four times –and plastic in a landfill can take up to a thousand years to degrade. According to the Recycling Coalition of Utah, only about 25 percent of the plastic produced in the U.S. is recycled even though the process requires 88 percentless energy than using raw material to make new plastic. Granulators are usedin recycling plastics because the machines rapidly reduce the plastic and other materials.
The Vrieco-Nauta Conical Screw Mixer has a long-standing reputation in the solids industry. Since 1946, the concept has been recognized as an extremely reliable and highly effective mixer for a wide range of powders. Its inventor and manufacturer Hosokawa Micron has sold more than 10,000 units over the years and still regularly maintains numerous mixers that have been mixing powders satisfactorily for several decades. Although the mixing principle remains unchanged, today’s Nauta mixers are a world away from the older types according to Daan Goris, Team Manager Food at Hosokawa Micron.
Although Hosokawa Micron B.V.is particularly well known for its mixing and drying systems, it actually offers much more technology for making custom-made powders. The company develops complete processes which enable customers to give their end products the desired properties directly.
Video demonstration of the Mini Cyclomix lab mixer, a high shear laboratory batch mixer, especially suitable for blending Dry Powder Inhaler formulations.
The Mini Cyclomix is very efficient compared to other high shear blenders, providing a homogeneous blend with a minimum input of mechanical energy due to the large surface area in relation to the product volume. By adjusting the mixing speed and time the Cyclomix can also perform other processes like coating, bonding, rounding or densification, making it a very versatile device. The Mini Cyclomix lab mixer features exchangeable product bowls of 0.1, 1 or 2 liters, suitable for offline, contained filling and cleaning.
