Hosokawa Micron Powder Systems provides the chemical industry with some of the more reliable and accurate processing equipment. With thousands installations around the world, Hosokawa has the expertise to solve any processing need. We offer equipment, system design and engineering for size reduction, classification, mixing and blending, drying, filling and weighing to high containment applications. Here are some of the common materials and processes where our experience is proven.
Hosokawa engineers and manufactures fluidized bed opposed jet milling systems to efficiently micronize abrasives down to D50 = 3 µm.
Activated carbon is known for its unique properties; low density with many pores and significantly high surface area, characteristics that make it a candidate for adsorption.
Carbon Black is a material produced from the incomplete combustion of hydrocarbons such as heavy oil and other petroleum products. It is an essential component in tires, rubber, plastics and liquids, enhancing these products by adding strength and durability.
The presence of anywhere from 1% to 10% of sulfur in the pulverized coal burnt by electric power generation plants, produces in the flue gas high concentrations of sulfur dioxide (SO2), a gas which if left untreated in the atmosphere, produces acid rain.
Lithium is a relatively rare element that is found in very small concentrations in many different rocks and also in brines.
The Vrieco Nauta Conical Blender is well established in this application with uses for low shear blending application where the standards are the highest.
Plastics and other types of polymers are often soft and elastic materials that do not respond well to impact milling. These heat sensitive solids soften, smear or melt if mechanically milled ambiently, leaving cryogenic size reduction as the only option. However, another method indeed exists.
A powder coating consists of a free-flowing, dry powder that is applied to a surface electrostatically, free from solvents that are used in liquid paint coatings.
Hosokawa engineers and manufactures ball milling systems to efficiently pulverize ceramic materials used in proppants.
During the micronizing stage ultrafine particles < 5 µm are generated. These undesirable ultrafine particles create problems in the document imaging process.
Trichloroisocyanuric Acid is a disinfectant, algaecide and bactericide mainly for swimming pools and it is also used as a bleaching agent in the textile industry.
Vehicle tires are recyclable and the various components can be separated and reclaimed for resale. Tire Recycling, referred to as Tire Pyrolysis, has become an eco-friendly method to reclaim raw materials from used or damaged tires while reducing the burden on landfills.
Materials that are used with three-dimensional printers usually need to be size reduced to a fine powder and sometimes classified before they can be 3D printed.
