Over 400 visit at The Powder and Bulk Solids Show

Rosemont, IL – Hosokawa Micron Powder Systems met with over 400 industry leaders at the International Powder and Bulk Solids Show in Rosemont, Illinois in early May.

Thousands of visitors flocked to the three day event hosted at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center. Guests came from many sectors of the powder processing industry, many looking for technology and equipment to improve existing applications or develop new programs. Special lab scale equipment such as Hosokawa’s Mikro-Bantam® Mill, Model NGB and Micron Air Jet SieveTM were among the most popular attractions.

Hosokawa’s Mikro-Bantam® Mill, Model NGB offers precision grinding for a lab scale operation at an affordable price. The Mikro-Bantam® Mill, Model NGB has interchangeable rotor options with limitless processing potential. Some visitors are considering this instrument for processing research since the machine can easily be scaled up for production.

The Micron Air Jet SieveTM was also a crowd favorite. Hosokawa’s application engineers demonstrated a full range of materials that could be evaluated using this table top sized particle analyzer. The Micron Air Jet Sieve™ can analyze material ranging from carbon black to ground coffee with an industry leading precision.

Rob Voorhees, vice president and general manager of Hosokawa Micron Powder Systems, attended the show and was pleased to meet with many industry leaders.

“We are pleased that so many potential customers visited the booth and had the opportunity to look at the craftsmanship of our equipment. It really helps prospective buyers appreciate a well designed piece of equipment when they can look inside while speaking with an applications engineer,” Voorhees said.

Hosokawa Micron Powder Systems already have plans to exhibit at the next International Powder and Bulk Solids Show in May of 2010.
