Fluid Energy Micronization
Particle to particle impact facilitated by air flow producies particles less than 50 microns in size.
Significant benefits to this style of milling include:
* No Heat Build Up
* No Abrasion Generated Contamination
Our production scale fluid energy milling systems are located in a dedicated air locked process suite. The mills are fed via a loss-in-weight or volumetric feeders, micronized product is then collected in a reverse pulse dust collector, and discharged to product containers through a rotary air lock valve. This system design allows for significant product containment and recoveries of +99.9%.
Agglomeration/Granulation via Roll Compaction
Roll compaction is a form of dry agglomeration that uses the force generated between two counter revolving rolls to compress powders into solid sheets. The sheets can then be milled and classified into a particular particle size range. Benefits to using roll compaction over wet agglomeration technologies include:
* Continuous process with internal recycle of off – spec granules and dust collection fines
* In many cases the addition of a binder is not required
* No granule drying is required
Our roll compaction system is located in a dedicated air locked process suite. This system includes internal recycle of undersized particles, oversized particles, and dust collector fines. The system design allows for significant product containment and recoveries of +99.5%.
CGI offers various styles of mechanical mills that can be used to delump, granulate, or pulverize a wide variety of solids. These mills can be setup in air locked process suites with various with varying degrees of dust collection and containment.
