Micronization

Precise particle size and morphology are critical for enhancing the performance of electrode materials in the battery industry. Micronization addresses these requirements by achieving a controlled particle size distribution (PSD), which is essential for consistent battery performance.


This process provides precise control over particle sizes to meet diverse application needs, a crucial aspect for battery materials. Additionally, milling enables control over particle morphology, which is essential for optimizing the electrochemical properties of the materials used. Furthermore, the process incorporates features that minimize contamination risks, which are crucial for maintaining the chemical integrity of battery materials and ensuring process safety. These combined capabilities make micronization a vital technique in the production and development of battery components, directly impacting their efficiency and safety.

Tailoring the PSD to specific requirements optimizes properties such as flowability, dissolution rate, and mixing behavior, enhancing the functionality and performance of battery components.

Our mills are designed to finely tune both top-cut and bottom-cut requirements, ensuring a narrow and controlled PSD curve, vital for batteries where particle size directly impacts efficiency and capacity. The mills feature advanced design elements and handling systems that minimize contamination risks, ensuring process safety and regulatory compliance. Adjustments in process parameters and mill design facilitate the achievement of the desired particle shape, crucial for optimizing the electrochemical properties of battery materials.


Spiral Jet Mill


The Spiral Jet Mill employs high-speed gas streams, typically air or nitrogen, to accelerate particles within a spiral flow pattern in the milling chamber. This process causes particles to collide and rub against each other, effectively reducing their size through collision and attrition mechanisms.

The design of the milling chamber, which is independent from the jet mill body, facilitates customization for each product, enhancing the mill's flexibility for multi-product applications. Additionally, the absence of mechanical moving parts within the mill simplifies dismantling, making it a versatile choice for industries like pharmaceuticals and fine chemicals that demand ultra-fine and consistent particle dimensions.


Co-axial Jet Mill


The Co-axial Jet Mill marks a significant innovation by integrating a powder injection system that aligns coaxially with the outlet, optimizing the flow and distribution of particles. ​ This design effectively addresses the inefficiencies and challenges often seen with traditional venturi injectors. The coaxial configuration enhances the mill’s overall efficiency, reducing common drawbacks and improving particle size reduction performance. This mill is particularly advantageous for applications demanding high precision and minimized waste.


Opposed Jet Mill


The Fluidized Bed Opposed Jet Mill operates by using opposing gas jets within a fluidized bed setup, where particles are suspended and subjected to intense jet streams from opposite directions for efficient particle disintegration. This setup facilitates frontal collisions of dry particles, accelerated by pressurized process gas, allowing for micronization to a particle size distribution below 10 microns, depending on the end user's requirements.​ The design of this mill ensures a gentle handling process, crucial for materials sensitive to shear forces, and achieves uniform particle distribution. With high automation, this mill is ideal for continuous micronization in applications such as powder production for inhalation, requiring minimal human intervention and ensuring consistent, high-quality outcomes.​
