Hosokawa Alpine Flake Crusher Bexmill

Innovative crushing technology

from laboratory-scale to industrial-scale production

Bexmill ABM

You place high demands on the crushing technology of your bulk materials? Our Bexmill ABM product line is the perfect answer with which the requirements of the pharmaceuticals, chemicals and food processing industries can be satisfied – from laboratory-scale to industrial-scale production up to 10 t/h. What that means for you: ONE single product line in a number of different machine sizes for a maximum range of applications.

  • Multiple options, accessories, and design variants available
  • Grinds soft to medium-hard materials in one step
  • Fast tool change of rotor and screen
  • Short cleaning times, easy operation

Principle of operation

Crushing with the Bexmill brings several advantages right from the start:

  • Bulk materials are homogenised, the flowability improved, the bulk density increased, agglomerates dispersed and rejects crushed gently
  • The conical shape of the grinding chamber guarantees high speeds, higher throughput rates and higher fineness values
  • Wide product and application range – from moist to dry feed material
  • The rotor can be adjusted without any need to open the grinding chamber, and this ensures an optimum crushing effect


Tailored to your application

  • Crushing of flakes, homogenisation of mixtures, disintegration of agglomerates, finishing of granulates
  • After mixer agglomeration, after fluid beds and kilns
Powdered milk

Powdered milk

The deagglomeration of the powder downstream of the mixing and drying steps constitutes an essential element of the production of high-quality milk powder.

Sugar cubes

Salt & Sugar lumps

Hygroscopic products have a tendency to form lumps during their storage. Homogenisation ensures a smooth production process.

Baked Goods

Salty snacks / Sweet pastries

Broken goods need no longer be disposed of but can rather be returned to the production process as rework material.

The facts speak for themselves


  • Dust-tight
  • Product-contacted parts in stainless steel
  • FDA-approved


  • ATEX design
  • Position of drive
  • Gas-thight design
  • Installation frame in mobile design
  • Flange geometry


  • Rotor
  • Inlet and outlet
  • Screens

Your screen for optimum product quality

Choose a screen insert depending on the product properties for the perfext interaction between the grinding tool and the screen:

  • Round perforations
  • Rasp-like perforations
  • Slotted perforations
  • Square perforations

The amount of energy required is generally low and corresponds roughly to the force that one can apply by manual crushing. The product is crushed between the rotor and the screen. A defined top cut is achieved in this way. Typical screen mesh sizes range from 0.5 – 10 mm.

Thanks to the low energy input, the end product is low in fines and the crushing process is low in noise. The feed material must not necessarily be dosed. The machine does not need to be dedusted. 

Test before you buy

Our test center can perform product trials with your test material. That lets you see the quality of our systems for yourself.
