Dry Processing for Ultrafine Industrial Mineral Fillers

Industrial Mineral Fillers are processed industrial minerals that may be irregular, platy or fibrous in shape, and which are used in paper, plastic, paint, or rubber industries. In the modern processing of industrial mineral fillers, there are many qualities that these fillers are supposed to have once milled, such as a specifically tailored particle size distribution, special particle shapes, come in the form of a dry, free-flowing powder, and more. Processing the industrial mineral fillers may prove difficult, especially when all of the required resulting properties are consider. However, Hosokawa Micron Powder Systems has many applications capable of processing industrial mineral fillers. These include:

Agitated Ball Mills

Agitated Ball Mills are GCC dry grinding ball milling systems known for their energy efficiency and fine-size reduction capability. Agitate ball mills are capable of grinding a wide variety of materials down to a size of D50 < 0.8 µm.

Alpine Turboplex Air Classifier

The Alpine Turboplex Air Classfier is an air-swept air classifier used to separate materials based on particle size and shape. It is capable of classifying ultra-fine materials, such as those often used in the dry processing of industrial mineral fillers.

Mikro LGM Long-Gap Mill

The Mikro LGM Long-Gap Mill is an application that combines size reduction, classification, and drying of materials all into one step. This is especially useful, as the LGM can be used to grind classify and dry wet industrial mineral fillers.

Alpine Jet Mills

The Alpine AFG Fluidized Bed Opposed Jet Mill and the Alpine TFG Fluidized Bed Jet Mill are perfect for grinding Talc into industrial mineral fillers. This is significant, as Talc is frequently used to create industrial fillers.
