Product Announcement from Sturtevant Inc.
The Sturtevant Open Manifold Design (OMD) Micronizer® eliminates any hidden areas and allows the mill to be completely disassembled for cleaning. Having access to all internal areas allows the user to switch products without the risk of contamination and reduces turnaround time between the different powders. The Micronizer® Jet Mill can typically produce particle size distributions between 1 and 20 microns.
The Open Manifold Design Micronizer® employs compressed air or gas to produce particles less than one micron. Precisely aligned jets create a vortex. Material is fed into this vortex along an engineered tangent circle and accelerates. High-speed rotation subjects material to particle-on-particle impact, creating increasingly smaller fines. While centrifugal force drives large particles toward the perimeter, fine particles move toward the center where they exit through the vortex finder.
There is no closed manifold, no access plugs, easy jet removal & polished surface finish. The Micronizer® grinds and classifies powders to low and sub-micron particle sizes in a single operation using high pressure compressed air, gas or steam:
- Pulverizes chemicals, pharmaceuticals, pigments, cosmetics, ceramics and minerals to narrow particle size distributions
- No moving parts for minimal product contamination and no heat generation
- Laboratory, pilot plant and continuous production models
- Variety of replaceable liners for protection against wear and contamination
