Glass

When considered a raw material, glass (glasses) is a collective term for an almost incomprehensible number of materials with a wide variety of compositions as an amorphous, non-crystalline solid. 
However, far greater than the variety of different types is the number of uses. Highly challenging applications for special glass such as the glass panels of the now very popular plasma TV screens joined the typical areas of application such as glass for windows or bottles long ago. 
Frits are a widely-used basic component for coatings for ceramic parts and are manufactured in large quantities. The established production standard for frits is a particle size of about 45 µm or approx. 16,900 mesh/cm2 screening surface. Here, an upper limit of up to approx. 3 mass-% sieving residue is common. In some areas, the trend is moving toward higher particle size standards. Finer components in the range of 32-25 µm and less are required for ever better print quality for screen print pastes or web-fed printing processes.


Dry Grinding

Products & Solutions in the field of Dry Grinding
s-Jet® Steam Jet Mill

The s-Jet® System (patent pending) is a new innovation in a line of consistent developments being made in the area of air jet milling. Final finenesses in the submicron range (example: d50 0.2 µm) can now be achieved with fluidized bed jet mills. As opposed to conventional dry grinding processes with fluidized bed jet mills, the s-Jet® System uses superheated steam as its milling gas.

CGS Fluidized Bed Jet Mill

The combination of an air jet mill and a dynamic air classifier represent fine dry grinding in perfection. The highest of final finenesses with an exact maximum particle size limitation become reproducible. The development of the new e-Jet® and s-Jet® grinding methods constantly yields new, interesting areas of application, both economically and technically. Applicable for finenesses from 1 to 70 µm (d97).

Machine sizes available for grinding air volumes from approx. 50 to 12,000 Nm³/h.

LabPilotPlant

Truly a flexible laboratory system – with reproducible results – variable for ultra-fine grinding and classifying – for laboratory operations or the continuous production of small batches!

s-Jet® 25 Laboratory-Scale-Steam Jet Mill

The s-Jet® System (patent pending) is a new innovation in a line of consistent developments being made in the area of air jet milling. Final finenesses in the submicron range (example: d50 0.2 µm) can now be achieved with fluidized bed jet mills. As opposed to conventional dry grinding processes with fluidized bed jet mills, the s-Jet® System uses superheated steam as its milling gas.

CGS 10 and CGS 16 Fluidized Bed Jet Mills

The smallest jet mills for virtually contamination-free fine grinding with an integrated classifier wheel – highest finenesses also achievable with the hardest of products.

For finenesses from 2.5 to 70 µm (d97).

Machine sizes with grinding air capacities of approximately 35 to 125 Nm³/h.

The next Generation of Agitator Bead Mills

NETZSCH-Feinmahltechnik GmbH has now developed the new Alpha® modular machine platform. Compared to earlier-generation machines, this series is designed such that different grinding systems can be mounted on the same base platform as appropriate for a defined drive capacity.

Circulation mill system Type Zeta®

The circulation grinding system for all fields of application. Suitability for all viscosities and nearly all products is achieved with different grinding media from 90 µm to 3 mm. This provides highest product qualities and fineness down to the nanometer range.

MiniSeries / MicroSeries - Laboratory Mills for Product Development of Smallest Batches

The compact, universally applicable laboratory circulation mills of the MiniSeries impress with their easy handling when processing very small quantities from 0.25 to 0.5 l up to particle sizes in the nanometer range. It is possible to conduct many tests with low loss of product and significant results within a short period of time.

Finest wet grinding technology – the laboratory mills of the MicroSeries are an investment in the future for new product developments of different fields of application of pigmented ink jets, technical ceramics, cosmetics, pharmaceutical applications and nano-scale high-tech products.

Nano mill Zeta® RS

Specially designed for grinding and dispersing to the nanometer range. This new development combines easy handling and revolutionary machine technology with ergonomic design.


Classifying
