Hosokawa Mikro-ACM Air Classifying Mill – Seatex’s Hosokawa Mikro-ACM Air Classifying Mill is suitable for the size reduction of a great variety of products and is employed in all branches of industry. The Mikro ACM uses a combination of impact grinding and an integrated dynamic classifier which constitutes the perfect solution particularly for the fine and ultrafine comminution of soft to medium-hard products.
GMF Gouda Rotary Drum Congealing Flaker – Seatex’s Gouda Rotary Drum Congealing Flaker takes a molten product and converts it into a solid form. A thin layer of the molten liquid product adheres to the outside of the rotating, internally cooled drum in a continuous process. Heat is then extracted from the product by contacting the cooled drum surface where the product solidifies and cools to a required final temperature. A stationary knife removes and breaks up the solidified layer. Flake sizes are achieved by controlling circumferential speed, layer thickness, and knife angle. Careful design ensures optimum use of the drum surface area to maximize capacity at the chosen operating conditions. The drum flaker is primarily used to produce flakes, but there are also ways of converting materials into easily manageable pastilles or prills.
Bematek In-line Colloid Mill – Seatex’s Bematek High-Shear colloid mill provides highly efficient particle size reduction for nearly any multicomponent fluid emulsion or dispersion. A high-speed conical rotor and matching jacketed stator subject the product to intense hydraulic shear forces. The result is a finished emulsion or dispersion with a small mean particle diameter and a narrow particle size distribution.
Littleford Horizontal Plow Mixer is a powder mixing circuit capable of both low and high shear powder mixing, liquid incorporation, de-agglomeration, and particle coating. The mixing vessel is stainless steel and jacketed for both heating and cooling. This mixing circuit is totally enclosed and explosion proof. The Littleford is also equipped with a vacuum drying system capable of drying materials and recovering solvents. A pilot scale mixer with identical capabilities is available for batches from 5-40 pounds.
