The Contraplex is a fine impact mill with two driven pin discs. In counter-rotating mode, much higher relative speeds are possible than with the UPZ fine impact mill with only one driven pin disc. The highest relative speed develops at the outermost pin rows and can be up to 240 m/s.
The fineness can be adjusted by altering the pin disc speeds. The centrifugal forces acting on both discs ensure that even moist, greasy and sticky products can be processed. The design with the wide-chamber housing is ideal for processing these kinds of products. The feed material is often embrittled by intensive mixing with liquid nitrogen.
The mill door can be hinged opened wide to permit easy cleaning.
