High-Performance Classifier - Mikro CC

The Hosokawa Micron classifiers and cyclones are coordinated perfectly to match the Mikro ACM classifier mill series. The classifiers can thus be integrated in-line into a grinding system or can be employed off-line as an independent classifying system. Backed up by numerous references worldwide, they are employed in the following industries

  • Powder coatings
  • Chemicals
  • Pharma
  • Food
  • Cosmetics
  • Minerals
  • Principle of operation

    The Mikro classifier CC is characterised by its optimised cyclone-classifier principle. Because of the optimised flow pattern and the use of a high-efficiency classifying wheel, the Mikro classifier CC is especially suitable for ultrafine classifying operations in in-line mode. The feed product is fed tangentially to the top of the classifier. The classifying wheel separates the feed product into a coarse fraction and a fines fraction. The classifying air and the fines pass through the classifier wheel, whereas the coarse material settles on the housing wall. A flow of secondary air introduced tangentially above the product discharge recirculates any unclassified material to the classifying wheel for renewed classification, whereby agglomerates are dispersed and the material is then distributed uniformly in the classifying zone. The optimised classifying wheel geometry results in a high product yield at an extremely high precision of cut. In addition, the low pressure drops result in low energy consumption and correspondingly lower operating costs.

  • Features
    • The Mikro classifier CC was designed for all types of fine to medium-fine products. It is especially suitable for powder coating classification aimed at reducing the ultrafine portion under 5 – 10 µm.
    • Special attention was paid during design of the Mikro CC classifier to ease of cleaning and simple maintenance. It is therefore predestined for use when the product is changed frequently.
    • Suitable for off-line and in-line mode even with high air flow rates.
    • Intensive dispersing power.
    • Controlled flow pattern.
    • Wide cut point range from 5 µm to several 100 µm.
    • Efficient classification as a result of internal recirculation of the feed material.
    • Simple to clean and maintain.
  • Applications

    The Mikro classifier CC is suitable for all types of fine to medium-fine products. It is especially suitable for dedusting powder coatings in the particle size range from 5 to 10 µm.
