Lab Grinder features precision operation.

Press Release Summary:

LPP 6.5 roller-style Gran-U-Lizer(TM) grinds material to narrow particle size distribution, with few unwanted fines, while minimizing impact and heat generation during process. Suitable for achieving results on lab and pilot plant scale, precision particle reduction solution offers independent control over roll gap, with accuracy to 0.0005 in.; roll shear ratio, with independent drive control for each roll; and roll corrugations, with sizes and shapes tailored for application.

Original Press Release:

Model LPP 6.5 Lab Grinder

Modern Process Equipment (Chicago, IL), the world's leading manufacturer of precision particle reduction equipment, introduces the LPP 6.5 Laboratory/Pilot Gran-U-Lizer(TM). Like all MPE roller-style Gran-U-Lizers, the LPP grinds material to a narrow particle size distribution, with few unwanted "fines", while minimizing impact and heat generation during the process. Better yet, the LPP's size makes it suitable for achieving results at the roller grinder standard in the lab and at a pilot plant scale.

Capability-wise, the LPP has independent control over the three important variables that affect ground product quality:

Roll Gap: The gap between the grinding rolls can be adjusted by the operator to 0.0005" accuracy with a gap adjustment handle located on the side of the unit.

Roll Shear Ratio: The LPP includes independent drive control for each roll, allowing independent adjustment of the roll speeds and the corresponding shear ratio between the roll surfaces.

Roll Corrugations: To obtain the best possible yield, the roll corrugation sizes and shapes are specifically tailored for the application. The LPP allows for simple, hand ("no tools") replacement of the roll bodies, thereby allowing for varying roll surface corrugation sizes and shapes.

Generally-speaking, the LPP is perfectly suited for laboratory settings, where a wide range of products are tested, or for testing a single product under a variety of conditions. It is designed and built to GMP standards, with easy clean-out and all product contact parts are removable for cleaning or autoclaving.
