picoline - process technology for R&D

This new series features eight individual machines specifically designed for the production of very small batches of between <1g and several grams. The Alpine picoline equipment maintains, in miniature, the top engineering standards and leading-edge technology for which HOSOKAWA ALPINE Aktiengesellschaft is renowned. With machines in the Alpine picoline series for size reduction, classifying and mixing, Hosokawa Alpine Aktiengesellschaft is able to offer the widest wet and dry processing options for ultra-small-scale production on the market.

  • Function modules

    The picosplit is an ultrafine classifier for the classification of dry powders by particle size. Classification is based on the centrifugal counterflow principle in a high-speed deflector-wheel classifier.

    The picozirk is a mechanical impact mill with integrated classifier for the dry fine milling of soft to medium-hard materials with a steep particle size distribution.

    The picojet is a fluidised bed opposed jet mill with integrated classifier for the contamination-free dry ultrafine milling of soft to hard materials. The design and principle of operation are almost identical with that of Alpine's AFG product line of fluidised bed opposed jet mills.

    The piconizer is a spiral jet mill for the dry milling of soft to medium-hard materials. The design and principle of operation are largely identical with that of Alpine's Aeroplex spiral jet mill AS product line.

    The picocross is a 2-rotor contra-rotating impact mill designed for the dry milling of soft to medium-hard materials. The design and principle of operation are largely identical with that of Alpine's Contraplex impact mill C product line.

    The picoplex is a mechanical impact mill for the dry milling of soft to medium-hard materials. The design and principle of operation are largely identical with that of Alpine's UPZ Ultraplex fine impact mill product line.

    The picoliq is an agitated media mill for the continuous or batchwise wet milling of particles in liquids. The design and principle of operation are largely identical with that of Alpine's AHM product line.

    The picobond is a mixing reactor designed to give a functional design to dry particles using a mechano-chemical process. The design and principle of operation are almost identical to that of the Alpine Nobilta product line.

    The picomix is a high-shear batch mixer for dry powders.

    The picocrush is a mechanical hammer mill designed for the dry precrushing of large granules and agglomerates made of soft to mediumhard materials.

  • Concept

    Initially featuring the Alpine picojet fluidised bed opposed jet mill, Alpine picoliq agitated ball mill, Alpine picomix batch mixer, Alpine piconizer spiral jet mill and Alpine picoplex impact mill, the series will be extended during the course of the year by a further three machines.

    Because the principle of operation of the Alpine picoline machines is the same as that of large production-scale machines, R&D departments can be confident that the transfer of a manufacturing process developed using a picoline machine to a production-scale machine will be smooth and problem free. Picoline machines  are designed for ease of operation, maintenance and cleanability, and offer early-stage development opportunities at low capital investment costs.

    Ideally suited to research and product development or for manufacturers of expensive materials in the fields of nanotechnology, pharmaceuticals, plastics, ceramics, speciality chemicals or new functional materials, the Alpine picoline series leads the way in mini batch processing technology.
