Processing and refining are the actual tasks of the spice industry - a product which is "suitable for consumption" must be manufactured from the raw spices. One of the main tasks is the grinding of the raw materials. As the flavoring components - mainly essential oils - are very volatile, a particularly gentle grinding procedure must be used.
Sugar is a versatile raw material used to manufacture chocolate, jams, ice cream, beverages or bakery products such as cookies. For many applications, sugar is finely ground to increase the rate of solubility or simply for the decoration of tasty desserts.
Typical toner products have a D50 in the range of 5 µm – 7 µm. NETZSCH Trockenmahltechnik GmbH entered the field of toner processing with the development of the CGS Jet Mill in the 1990’s followed by the CFS/HD-S High Dispersion Air Classifier a few years later.
In contrast to conventional grinding plants, the processing gas in the new Impact Mill Condux® Compact is circulated. A pressure shock resistant rotary valve feeds the product directly into the mill. After the product has been ground, it leaves the machine through another valve at the bottom of the mill.
Condux® fine impact mills can be used for a wide range of applications. Equipped with various grinding tools and stators, optimum adaptations to different processes are guaranteed, also for pressure-shock-proof, inert gas and cryogenic grinding plants.
Our long-term experience with a diversity of products in these fields, is available for your toll grinding needs.
Mills and classifiers for processing cellulose
The demands placed by the manufacturing industry on the technical design of mechanical plants and processes are getting tougher all the time. Gas-tight or surge pressure-resistant designs are already a must for most plant and machinery to ensure compliance with the latest regulations. New product qualities and/or methods of production also enlarge the portfolio of requirements, for example in the cellulose processing sector.
Whether used for the fine icing on cakes and cookies, in the production of confectionery and drinks, or for the visual rounding off of delicious desserts, in our latitude we cannot imagine a life without white sugar crystals for the sweetening of foodstuffs. Apart from the "coarse" crystal sugar or refined sugar which is mainly used, the considerably finer form of sugar, icing sugar, is required for many applications in the household and in industry. The manufacture of this fine sugar is carried out by mechanically milling sugar crystals on modern impact mills.
Are you searching for a versatile grinding machine to handle multiple bulk products? One solution may be a unversal mill. The mill uses grinding tools that can be interchanged to handle a range of soft to medium-hard materials, providing the advantages of custumized grinding in one housing. After outlining the universal mill´s components, operation and maintenance, this article gives information on grinding tools, special applications and mill selection.
