With its innovative technology, the Immersion mill combines mixing and milling achieving optimum particle size distribution, increasing production efficiency, and producing extraordinary quality. Immersion milling is a revolution processing technology that defies comparison. Its unique design and method of operation surpass all other systems, enabling the entire milling process to take place within a single milling chamber.
Traditional milling is slow due to the low velocity of the feedstock passing through the shear zone. To increase velocity, the intensity of the shear zone must be decreased. Immersion milling works in an entirely different way. Products are passed through an aggressive shear zone at very high velocity: as fast as 50 passes per hour. This produces very narrow particle size distributions and decreases the bead to product ratio necessary for efficient milling.
