Hosokawa’s universal milling system has interchangeable rotor options giving operators a wide range of milling solutions in one platform. The Mikro® UMP Universal Mill was developed as the next step in the evolution of the Mikro Pulverizer Hammer and Screen Mill, especially well-suited for plastic and chemical applications. The contract manufacturing facility at Hosokawa uses the UMP for chemical processing. The UMP is a hammer mill, pin mill, knife mill and attrition mill all in one system. The interchangeable rotors can be quickly changed to achieve desired size reduction results down to D90 < 35 µm. This mill is constructed in stainless steel and is easy to disassemble for cleaning. It can be operated with conditioned air or liquid nitrogen to lower the grinding chamber temperature and to embrittle feed materials for more efficient milling.
