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.

Processors Maximize Regrind Use with Efficient & Cost-Effective Dedusting Technology
July 11, 2016

A growing number of plastics processors are realizing major manufacturing efficiencies and significant costs savings with the use of customized dedusting systems that eliminate dust, fines, and contamination to maximize the use of plastic regrind. Plastic parts manufacturers – such as blow molders, extruders, and injection molders - place a high value on regrind because it lowers material cost and increases profit margins. However, a big stumbling block in the plastic scrap reclaim process is dust which adversely affects processing, lowers material quality, increases equipment maintenance, causes rejected parts, and raises cost.

New Lab Compaction System
May 1, 2016

Since many active pharmaceutical ingredients cost thousands of dollars per gram to produce, Hosokawa felt it was important to continue development of laboratory scale equipment to process these valuable powders. In May 2016, Hosokawa introduced the Alpine Pharmapaktor APC C80/20, the companies smallest compaction and dry granulation system. It was developed to process small batches of 10 gram or less, or could be used in a continuous operation compacting up to 30 kg/hour.  The Pharmapaktor C80/20 was designed for processing active pharmaceutical ingredients into dust free granules using compaction forces up to 6 kN/cm.  The C80/20 compaction rollers are 80 mm in diameter and 20 mm wide and have an adjust able gap that is electromechanically controlled. The entire process area, including the flake crusher can be built inside a containment glove box designed to protect operators and reduce product contamination.
