Product Information

The Ultraplex UPZ Fine Impact Mill is a versatile but simple to operate size reduction system with exchangeable grinding elements.

Ultraplex UPZ Fine Impact Mill

This impact mill’s versatility comes from the easily interchangeable milling elements, making the machine adaptable to suit a wide variety of feed materials.

Ultraplex UPZ Mills can be equipped as pin mills without a sieve, with one rotating pin disc and one stationary one. They can also be equipped as a beater mill with a beater disc, swing, or plate beater unit, for operation with grinding tracks or sieves. The overall result is a host of practice-oriented and perfectly coordinated equipment combinations.

The UPZ impact mill is used in many branches of industry (particularly chemicalsfood, animal feed, and pharmaceuticals) for a wide variety of applications. Its versatility can be summarised as follows:

  • Beater disc, pin discs, swing beaters and plate beaters, sieves and grinding tracks
