Hosokawa's experience in process engineering means we are familiar with the problems of handling powders, dusts and slurries, and can provide optimal technical and economical solutions for specific applications. Our aim is to provide not only a stand-alone machine, but engineering and systems capabilities to meet production needs.
We have a large range of differing technologies to meet the agglomeration needs of many types of materials and processes including press agglomeration for particle size enlargement through compacting, briquetting and pelletising; extrusion technology; batch fluid bed processing; and mixer agglomerators.
Drying is the unit operation to remove moisture from wet materials through evaporation by heat.
Also the ability to mix and dry in a totally enclosed operation is beneficial in all industries, eliminating transport conveyors, holding hoppers etc., reducing downtime for cleaning and product losses.
The Hosokawa batch and continuous dryer range is available for drying and cooling a wide range of granules, powders, pastes and slurries.
With Varying requirements for product isolation and operator protection Hosokawa Micron have developed a range of equipment and integrated system options to meet the varied containment criteria demanded by different applications and industries.
Tumbler Screening machines screens are designed to match the three-dimensional action used in hand sieving, thereby providing solutions for a wide range of sieving problems, for both wet and dry applications.
Used in many sectors of industry, these screens are reliable and robust all-purpose machines, allowing multi-fraction operation (some models have up to 5 decks), and with a wide range of screen cleaning options including bouncing ball or ultrasonic.
Powder processing at some stage tends to involve some combination of raw materials, additives and active ingredients being processed to produce the required particle size.
This means a whole range of requirements have to be met from simple disagglomeration and coarse grinding through to ultrafine milling down to sub-micron particle sizes.
Hosokawa can supply a range of mill technologies, whose size and special designs, from lab up to production scale systems, are suitable for producing a wide range of fineness and product types.
The mixing process and mixer design is dependant upon the nature of the materials to be mixed.
Hosokawa has developed a wide range of mixing technologies to meet the needs of both wet and dry powder applications. From lab and pilot plant through to full scale production mixers and systems, Hosokawa can meet your wet and dry mixing requirements for batch and continuous operations.
Accurate, weight controlled filling systems from Hosokawa maintain the highest standards of hygiene, dust control and product. Suitable for drums, bags and IBC systems Hosokawa offer a wide range of filling and weighing options.
The continuing success of Hosokawa technology has primarily been due to the continued research and development into different areas of powder processing applications.
To help facilitate customers find optimum solutions to differing problems, Hosokawa offers a wide range of lab and pilot plant versions of existing technologies which can also be used to provide direct scale-up information to production sized machines.
Developments within powder processing have led to demands for increasingly finer particles and narrower particle size distributions.
In response to this need, Hosokawa have developed a diverse range of classifiers to meet differing classification applications within industries such as pharmaceuticals, chemicals and toners.
Our classifiers, designed for easy operation and maintenance, produce particle size distributions that are uniform and homogeneous, spherical, smooth and dry and easily dispersible.
