Test center achieves submicron particle sizes with wet grinding systems

A size reduction testing and demonstration facility helps customers improve their size reduction operations.

Companies that process dry bulk solids often need to reduce a material’s particle size to the submicron level to make a new product or improve and enhance an existing product’s performance and characteristics. However, many companies have dry grinding equipment that can’t achieve submicron particle sizes because the high kinetic energy requirements generate excessive heat during the grinding process. One solution is to switch to a wet grinding process that can handle the kinetic energy requirements. To select the necessary equipment, it’s best to work with an experienced equipment supplier with a test center. The test center will determine the best-suited grinding mill and ancillary equipment for your application and establish the grinding system’s optimum operating parameters to efficiently and economically produce submicron particles. One such test center is operated by a size reduction equipment and components supplier in Exton, Pa.
