MPE Announces the "Cold Milling" Flax Seed Gran-U-Lizer(TM)

Press release date: Sep 12, 2012

(Chicago, IL) Modern Process Equipment Corporation (MPE), the world’s leading manufacturer of precision particle reduction equipment, announces the “Cold Milling” Flax Seed Gran-U-Lizer™ (grinder). This unit utilizes water-cooled rollers and a proprietary tooth profile to cut and mill flax seed into a very fine powder – much finer than conventional hammermills. MPE’s design eliminates screens, thereby eliminating product stickiness and “gumming”, while reducing product retention time within the grinder to eliminate heat generation and exposure.

Flax seeds need to be milled (ground) in order to offer their health benefits. The cold milling process keeps all of the nutrients intact, including preserving the fragile Omega 3 oils, a well-known nutritional benefit, that are found in flax.

Typical capacities for MPE’s flax seed grinders range from 2,000 to 4,000 lbs/hr., depending on the grind size setting. Larger and smaller versions are also available.
