Press Release Summary:
Able to handle wet or dry materials, 24 in. sanitary stainless steel Model CIM-24-SS grinds bulk pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals into controlled particle sizes down to 325 mesh. Materials travel from center to periphery of discs, passing through 5 intermeshing rows of rotating and stationary pins. Desired tight particle size distribution is obtained by controlling rotor speed, which is infinitely variable between several hundred rpm and 5,400 rpm.
Original Press Release:
Centrifugal Impact Mill Finely Grinds Pharmaceuticals, Nutraceuticals
A new 24 inch (610 mm) sanitary stainless steel Centrifugal Impact Mill Model CIM-24-SS from Munson Machinery grinds bulk pharmaceutical and nutraceutical materials into controlled particle sizes down to 325 mesh.
High speed rotation of the inner disc creates centrifugal force that accelerates bulk material entering the central inlet of the opposing stationary disc. As material travels from the center to the periphery of the discs at high speed, it passes through a "treacherous path" of five intermeshing rows of rotating and stationary pins, with the desired tight particle size distribution obtained by controlling the rotor speed.
Setting the infinitely variable rotor speed between several hundred rpm and 5400 rpm provides the flexibility to use the machine for coarse grinding and de-agglomerating as well as for fine grinding.
Also called a "Pin Mill," the unit is said to handle wet or dry materials, to produce tight particle size distribution at any given rotor speed setting, and to sanitize rapidly.
According to the manufacturer, the unit provides high throughput rates per horsepower relative to machines employing screens, hammers, knives or rolls, depending on application.
Other size reduction equipment offered by the company includes screen classifying cutters, rotary de-clumpers, attrition mills, hammer mills and shredders. Blending equipment also produced by the company includes ribbon, paddle and plow blenders, rotary batch mixers, rotary continuous mixers, high intensity blenders and Forberg mixers.
