Flame-retardants, borate blends and dry inorganic formulations are now more accessible to manufacturers using new technologies
West Hartford, CT – Rose Mill Company, in response to a growing demand for mineral processing services, has increased their capacity to mix and blend dry mineral-based salts and similar dry, salt-like products. New technologies, such as those relying on LCD/smartphone glass, or the new oil and gas "fracking" methods, often require minerals, mineral-based chemicals, and inorganic chemical formulations that are processed to meet the specific needs of the technology.
"We are adding new equipment to make our existing toll blending operation more efficient and to gain capacity to accommodate new business" notes Rose Mill President Jay Stolfi. "This is the second phase of our expansion. It is a natural progression from last year's expansion to our pulverizing capacity," he notes. In addition to dry mixing/blending and pulverizing, Rose Mill provides screening, labeling and packaging services for small and large manufacturers. Industries served include oil and gas, mining, chemical, automotive, construction materials, flame-retardants, metallurgy, consumer products, high-performance lubricants, high-performance glass, and others.
