Multi Plant for Cosmetics

The dry processing of cosmetic products and/or their ingredients is usually carried out using conventional pin-disc mills and/or spiral jet mills. Due to the very large variety of product- and colors of these „powders“, corresponding high demands are made on applied machine technology. Recently, NETZSCH-CONDUX developed and delivered a plant especially for this particular application.

The plant, known as a Skid-System, of which the components are all mounted on one platform, is designed as a complete system in dust-explosion protected execution, being pressure-shock resistant up to 10 bar (g). The easy filling and positioning of the gravimetric dosing system is carried out via a mobile lifting device installed directly in front of the plant.

The heart of the plant is a CONDUX CUM 150 Universal Mill, which uses pin discs to dry-grind the products. In addition to this, a conventional spiral jet mill is also integrated in the plant to be used if required.

In order to facilitate and ensure the effectiveness of the cleaning after change of product and/or color, the product-contacted parts of the plant were equipped with a so-called easy-cleaning system. During design work for the machine/plant, care was taken to choose components, each with a weight < 10 kg in order to make dismantling and/or mounting work easier.
