As products and technologies become more advanced in today’s markets, the need for materials with specific properties for special applications becomes more important. With the broad range of requirements, it is not practical to think that one type of milling technology will satisfy all needs. This article provides an overview of five product-specific milling technologies used in many industrial applications today. Read our article recently published in Processing Magazine (July 2017).
On Wednesday, October 4th, Hosokawa host the Powder Technology Symposium in Summit, NJ.
The development of particle processing technology is closely related to the new economy, which made use of more high-tech products towards the beginning of the 21st century. Applying ultrafine powders and nanoparticles to create new materials has caught the imaginations of researchers around the world. Although particle processing technology has gained significant progress in recent years, learning to use the processing technologies via particle characterization to achieve new product functionalities while meeting with the environmental and safety requirements is still challenging, but full of opportunities.
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.
