Plastic Granulators
February 13, 2017

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.

New Mini Cyclomix Demonstration Video Published
December 19, 2016

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.

Efficient Flour Grinding with a Hammer Mill
August 5, 2016

Hosokawa recently manufactured this 250 horse-power Mikro Pulverizer® Hammer & Screen Mill for a grain processor in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. This mill will be installed at a flour production facility that grinds various types of dry grains including wheat, rye, oats and barley in a 24 hour operation. The Mikro Pulverizer is particularly popular in grain milling applications because of its high capacity, low energy consumption and fine grinding capability. In many flour applications these mills can grind grains in the range of 80 to 100 mesh (180 µm to 150 µm) with some percentage below 200 mesh (75 µm).  Hosokawa’s hammer mills are well suited for a wide range of food milling applications including sugar, corn, rice, soya beans as well as for chemical and mineral materials. These mills are extremely durable and require little maintenance and downtime.
