The wet material is fed through customized feeding systems into the grinding and drying section of the dryer's main body. The grinding rotor disperses the wet material into very fine particles and the fine particles are fluidized in the grinding chamber by temperature-controlled, hot gas coming in from the air heater.

The hot air (or inert gas) can be heated up to 650 °C and as the wet product is dispersed, it is reduced in size in the bottom section of the dryer. The system is kept under a negative pressure by the exhaust fan and the surface area of the product is increased enormously so that water (or other solvents) is evaporated instantaneously.

The dry and fine particles are conveyed with the gas stream to the top section of the dryer where a separator classifies the particles by size. Then the particles pass the classifier at the set cut point and are conveyed with the exhaust air to a powder air separating system like the cyclone, cyclone filter or cyclone scrubbers.

The Micron Dryer flash dryer retains a fluidized bed of product in the drying chamber to ensure a low level of adhesion of wet material on the inside wall of the drying chamber. Moreover, process parameters like classifier speed and outlet temperature can be adapted to control moisture content and particle size of the end product.

  • Ultra fine regular end product - Due to its specially designed dispersion rotor, our flash dryers are able to produce ultra-fine powders in one step from suspensions, slurries, pastes and dough, filter cakes or wet powders.
  • High evaporation capacity - Due to the combination of high ?T with a good dispersion of the wet product in the air, our flash dryers can evaporate large quantities of liquids.
  • Compact design - Compared to other direct drying technologies, the flash dryer requires up to 50% less space.
  • Multi-purpose - Filter cake or slurry, in the same machine. Therefore with the Drymeister-H unlimited mechanical dewatering is possible previous to the final drying stage.
  • Easy access  - Either for cleaning, inspection or maintenance inside the dryer, our flash dryers offers the best accessibility from the market, regardless which size.
  • Various systems available - Open, closed- and recycle system concepts.

Proppants (Ceramic)


Hosokawa engineers and manufactures ball milling systems to efficiently pulverize ceramic materials used in proppants. The Alpine Super Orion Ball Mill SO, in conjunction with Alpine High Efficiency Air Classifier, is designed to continuously grind hard materials down to D90 = 10 µm at rates up to 100 tons/hour.

In many modern oil and gas fracking, drill operators use proppants and fracking fluids to recover the highest volumes of fuel from well sites. The proppants or fracking fluids are injected into the wells below the surface under high pressure to open new veins and support the cavity created in the fracking process.

To maintain stability and maximize recovery, the proppant materials need to be nearly spherical and have high tensile strength. Due to the large quantities of proppants needed in these wells, the material cost and quality is tightly monitored and controlled.

Proppant material consists of tiny round pellets ranging from 500 µm to 3 mm in diameter. These pellets can be constructed with a variety of ultra fine raw and blended materials including sand, glass and ceramic depending on the well characteristics. Ceramic proppants are particularly popular due to their low material cost, high strength and roundness. 

To produce these high quality ceramics proppants, producers prefer ultra fine ceramic powders with tight particle size distribution. The fineness of the powders increases the density and roundness possible when forming the pellets. Hosokawa’s ball milling system is specifically designed to produce this ultra fine ceramic powder with a high degree of accuracy and low energy costs.
