At comparably low specific energy consumption, long gap mills achieve maximum fineness values which are impossible to attain with conventional impact mills such as universal mills and pin mills, and which can only be achieved with classifier impact mills at high energy costs.
Long gap mills are ideal for a combined process operation where several process steps are executed simultaneously in one single unit. With the LGM, a product can be simultaneously comminuted, dried, coated and/or mixed. Based on decades of experience with impact comminution, Hosokawa Alpine has redefined the standard for this technology and at the same time refined the design of the LGM long gap mill.
A top priority during development of the new LGM mill was the market demand for maximum availability. A prerequisite for this requirement is minimum downtime for maintenance and adjustments. The ease of operation and maintenance of Alpine's new LGM is convincing.
