Hosokawa Micron Powder Systems provides the mineral 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.
Graphite is crystalline allotrope of carbon that comes in an amorphous, flake-like, or platelet shape.
Limestone, which is primarily calcium carbonate, is a sedimentary rock made from the minerals calcite or aragonite.
Kaolin or kaolinite mineral is alumina silicate clay that was formed from the weathering of igneous rocks in moist and warm climate regions.
Metal powders are used in the production of a variety of manufacturing processes. Hosokawa has developed applications specifically for processing of metallic powders.
Ground quartz is used as fillers in the paint, adhesives and plastic industries. Quartz powder provides strength, durability and resistance to wear. It also provides chemical inertness. Ground quarts can be added to achieve high solids content with low viscosity impact. High purity quartz will also provide a bright whiteness.
The compaction of talc on roller presses meets those demands. Due to the relative low bulk weight of fine talc, the roller presses must be equipped with a vacuum de-aeration for this purpose.
Talc is a clay mineral made of hydrated magnesium silicate. Talc is formed from metamorphic reaction of minerals in aqueous conditions.
