Laboratory Equipment

LEADING IN LABORATORY EQUIPMENT: Our R&D systems set new standards.

The basic parameters for the production process are set at an early stage, i.e. during the development of new processes. Hence, developers require equipment and analysis processes that also apply to later industrial-scale processes. This eliminates costly developments that cannot be implemented on an industrial scale.

 

 

Hosokawa Alpine provides a comprehensive range of high-end quality monitoring and inspection equipment for a wide powder range on a laboratory scale. Our laboratory systems are optimized in an ongoing process to ensure that we set future standards. Close cooperation with research institutes ensures a constant exchange of information. Thanks to their easy handling and high repeatability, our laboratory equipment and pilot plant lines are tested in many applications and accepted worldwide.

The Alpine air jet sieve

Developed by Alpine in 1953, the air jet sieve has become the most widely used system for the powder analysis. It analyses particle sizes of down to 20 µm with maximum repeatability. It has become the most widely used system for the analysis of powder particle size distributions in the world and has become established in virtually all industries. A high number of industry standards such as DIN EN 933-10 refers to the ALPINE air jet sieve as standard equipment.

The picoline

Testing new size reduction processes with particularly valuable products is a special challenge: the generation of repeatable results with minute amounts of material. As a response to this challenge, we developed a new line generation: the picoline. Thanks to extreme miniaturisation, comminution processes for very expensive products and strictly minimized sample volumes can be applied to industrial-scale processes. Almost one dozen different modules represent virtually the entire range of possible processing methods on a small scale.

The Multi-Processing System

Similar in versatility and equipment, the picoline’s “big brother”, Hosokawa Alpine’s multi-processing system combines five different processing methods to meet a wide variety of requirements. In the wake of a steady flow of newly developed products with unpredictable milling properties, customers require systems that offer maximum versatility.

Fast and simple changeover procedures accommodate a high number of different processes. These highly versatile products are suitable for a high number of potential applications: from A for aluminium oxide, to P for powder coating and pigments right down to Z for zinc oxide.

Case Study: special equipment for special applications

Our machines have to meet numerous requirements. Every industrial segment and each product calls for an individual, tailor-made approach and solution. Thanks to many years of experience in particle processing, we can meet this challenge with tried-and-tested systems such as Alpine’s UPZ fine impact mill:

  • Tried and tested in many different areas, from minerals and food to pharmaceutical products
  • Suitable for laboratory, pilot plant and production scale 
  • Versatile size reduction system – exchangeable size reduction modules
  • High fineness levels with sharp top cut
  • Explosion pressure shock resistant design to ATEX directive 94/9/EG
  • Optional wear protection
