  2. CNC Milling
  3. Grinding Machines
  1. Agglomaster

    Agglomaster

    The Agglomaster is a multi-purpose batch fluid bed processor for grinding, agglomeration, coating and drying. The design of the fluid bed bottom with rotating split disk and agitating blades, together with opposed pulse jet mechanism and facility for liquid injection on different positions, creates a wide range of controls for particle size, shape and density of particles.

  2. Air Classifier Mill

    Air Classifier Mill

    This type of mill operates on the principle of impact grinding and employs high rotor speeds with a striking edge velocity of up to 120 m/s. Size reduction takes place by the impact of material particles on the rotating grinding surfaces (hammers or pins) and on the fixed liner, or grinding track. Designed with an integral classifier, particle size, distribution and cut point can be accurately controlled by variable classifier speed.

    Operating in the medium to fine particle size reduction range the Mikro ACM delivers guaranteed, accurate particle size because of the highly efficient, variable speed dynamic integral air classifier and achieves a steep particle size distribution with minimum ultra fines.

  3. Angle Disintegrator

    Angle Disintegrator

    The Hosokawa Micron Angle Disintegrator offers continuous and  intense grinding/pulverising/homogenising  of wet and dry products and can automatically separate and reject non friable material through the optional secondary discharge.

    Suitable for chemical, food and pharmaceutical products.

  4. Cyclomix

    Cyclomix

    This high shear mixer relies on a centrally located high speed rotating shaft driven from the mixer cover. The shaft is fitted with paddle-shaped mixing elements which rotate close to the vessel wall.

    The Cyclomix is specially designed for cohesive powders with liquids or melt binders. It also handles pastes, slurries and liquids with ease due to its combination of high-shear and high-impact forces.

  5. Downflow Booths

    Downflow Booths

    Hosokawa Downflow Booths offer a safe working zone for operatives. 

    They provide protection from harmful, hazardous, toxic, or sensitizing dusts which are generated during manual powder handling activities such as sampling or dispensing. This also includes charging and offloading sub-division from powders or solvents, drum loading, and unloading.

    Achieving Operator Exposure Levels (OEL) typically between  50 and 100µg/m3  TWA/Task Duration. Lower levels of containment can be achieved by using containment screens.

  6. Drum Handling Equipment

    Drum Handling Equipment

    Hosokawa Micron Ltd manufacture a range of automatic and manual drum and keg tipping equipment designed to offer safe product transfer. Product tipping units can be integrated with downflow booths, laminar flow booths or be free-standing. Additionally they can incorporated within glove box facilities.

    Designed to minimise the amount of manual handling which occurs, our drum handling equipment is suitable for fibreboard kegs, plastic drums, and steel drums up to 200ltr and 250kg. They are manufactured to conform to current COSHH and manual handling regulations.

  7. Drum Handling Systems

    Drum Handling Systems
    Hosokawa manufacture a range of automatic and manual drum and keg tipping equipment designed to offer safe product transfer. Product tipping units can be integrated with downflow booths, laminar flow booths or be free-standing. Additionally they can incorporate glove box facilities and HEPA safe-change filters. Suitable for fibreboard kegs or plastic or steel drums up to 200 ltr and 250kg and conforming to current COSHH regulations, all units are individually designed to meet customer requirements.
  8. Filling and Weighing Systems

    Filling and Weighing Systems

    Accurate weight controlled filling systems from Hosokawa maintain the highest standards of hygiene, dust control and product integrity.

    Stable and repeatable weight readings are given to meet exact container weight specifications even in arduous conditions.Incorporating the proven inflatable packing head, the packaging system is quickly adaptable to a wide range of boxes, bags, drums and sacks.

    When combined with an automatic container indexer, conveyor and label printer a complete, automatic bulk packaging system can be developed.

  9. Flexible Compact Isolator

    Flexible Compact Isolator

    Designed to meet the demands for a cost effective, flexible, barrier containment solution, the Hosokawa Stott flexible isolator offers companies involved in scientific research, biotechnology or pharmaceutical development, high level, product and personnel protection across a range of processing applications.

    Containment levels <1µg/m3

    A cost effective, modular, barrier containment solution which can easily be transported to where it is needed. Simply ‘plug and play’.

  10. Glove Integrity Tester

    Glove Integrity Tester
    Hosokawa Micron’s new automated glove integrity tester provides a quick and easy way to test isolator fitted pharmaceutical gloves and gauntlets.
    This fully automated, easy to use glove tester is essential to check for damage to gloves and gauntlets, not apparent to the naked eye, which may put operators handling potentially harmful materials at risk.
    Even detects holes less than 100µm
