Micronizer®

How it Works

Click the illustration to see the Micronizer in action

  1. Feed material is metered into the inlet funnel
  2. Feed material is drawn into the grinding chamber through a vacuum created by the venturi
  3. Compressed air, gas or superheated steam is forced through the grinding nozzles at high velocities.
  4. The high velocity air, gas or steam accelerates the feed material generating particle-on-particle impact
  5. Centrifugal force holds the coarser particles in the outer area of the grinding chamber until milled finer
  6. The impact generates finer particles that are carried toward the center of the grinding chamber
  7. The micronized product exits the grinding chamber in the draft generated by the vortex finder

Powderizer®

How it Works

Click the illustration to see the Powderizer in action

  1. Material enters feed inlet
  2. Airflow draws material into a chamber where it passes by the classifier wheel
  3. Finer particles present in the material pass through the classifier wheel and exit mill with product discharge airflow
  4. Larger particles are rejected by the classifier wheel and travel downward onto the grinding rotor
  5. Larger particles are pulverized by the grinding rotor and corrugated impact wall
  6. Pulverized particles join incoming feed material and are presented to the classifier wheel
  7. In a continuous cycle, the finer particles exit through the classifier wheel and larger particles return to the grinding rotor for further milling

Simpactor®

How it Works

Click the illustration to see the Simpactor in action

  1. Material enters bifuricated (split) feed inlet
  2. Material drops on to the grinding rotor
  3. Material travels by centrifugal force into the grinding area where it is ground by rotor and stationary pins
  4. Material leaves rotor and impacts corrugated wall for final grinding
  5. Ground particles fall into product collection cone
  6. Product exits through cone outlet

Whirlwind®  Air Classifier

How it Works

Click the illustration to see the Whirlwind in action

  1. Product enters feed inlet by gravity
  2. Product falls through intake cone
  3. Centrifugal force directs product into classification zone
  4. Larger particles fall off distributor plate into coarse cone
  5. Internal fan conveys smaller particles upward
  6. Selector blades separate large particles from airflow
  7. Finer product falls into fines cone, air is recycled
  8. Coarser product exits by gravity
  9. Finer product exits by gravity

Side Draft  Air Classifier

How it Works

Click the illustration to see the Side Draft in action

  1. Product enters feed inlet by gravity
  2. Centrifugal force directs product into classification zone
  3. Product passes between air inlet and rejector cage
  4. Atmospheric or recycled air enters through air inlet
  5. Smaller airborne particles pass through variable speed rejector cage
  6. Finer product exits with airflow for collection in cyclone or dust collector
  7. Larger particles fall by gravity into coarse cone
  8. Coarser product exists by gravity
