The diversity of powder characteristics in this industry, means engineering capability as well as experience is necessary for the design of these systems to meet customers’ specific powder processing requirements.

Our equipment range offers customers a number of options for all processing stages of drying, dis-agglomeration, milling and classifying of minerals.

Found everywhere on the planet, minerals are natural resources used extensively in the manufacture of everyday and specialist products, ranging from dietary supplements, pharmaceuticals, liquid detergents, paint, glass and cosmetics, to Lithium batteries, smartphones, nuclear reactors, insecticides, weapons systems, sandpaper and precision instruments such as thermometers.

Hard and soft minerals – such as calcium carbonate, gypsum, quartz, ceramic clay, silica and graphite – represent a diverse spectrum of powder characteristics and each presents its own unique processing challenges. Very specific handling is required to achieve optimum results for the application required, which includes the fiercely competitive filler market, along with the agrochemical, construction, healthcare and battery materials industries. As requirements become more high-tech and intricate, so too is the need for extremely in-depth powder processing and equipment expertise.
