Our Technology

Technology

The theory beyond the invention claims that a particle will break along its weak points when it is exposed to certain aerodynamic conditions. The vortex mill creates those aerodynamic conditions which are like the tornado phenomena. A vortex spins tornado-like and aerodynamic conditions are created within the milling chamber for reduction in particle size to the desired size. Aerodynamic force is the main force for particle reduction in our mill which is unlike all other milling technologies that are based on mechanical force.
The Super Fine Vortex mill comprises a compact vortex chamber with no moving parts.

The milling process of the Super FineVortex mill is a continuous process. The final milling results are achieved in one milling stage. There is no need for more rounds.

Super Fine's Vortex mills require an air supply at a pressure of up to 6 bars. Compared to other mills that use compressed air, our technology consumes much less air in the same conditions when milling a specific material. Super Fine's innovative approach has a number of significant advantages over conventional technologies, which relay on mechanical forces to reduce particle size.


 

Quality

Super Fine's milling technology delivers a product of superior quality to that obtained by other milling technologies in the following parameters:

1. Uniformity
The centrifugal forces created by the Super Fine's mill are utilized to remove particles that have achieved a certain size, from the milling chamber. Eventually, all the material is in the chamber with a relatively narrow variance in particle size.

2. Ultra-fine
Very little dust / ultra-fine is created during the milling process.

3. Purity
There is no contamination during the process. There are no moving parts in the mill. The walls of the vortex chamber are lined with a material that is the same as, or harder than, the material being milled.


 

Economic

Super Fine's milling technology can significantly reduce milling costs for a number of reasons, as the following:

1. Low Energy Consumption
Super Fine's low-pressure work regime of 4 to 6 bars at a low airflow rate translates into low energy consumption.

2. Minimal Material Loss
Super Fine technology does not create "ultrafine" particles like most of the technologies that are based on mechanical forces.

3. Efficiency 
TheSuper Fine Vortex mill can accept relatively large inputs, up to 800 times the size of the micronize outputs for most materials. This milling ratio of 1:800 is far superior to that of the other air-mills.

 

 


Advantages 

Super Fine's technology has a number of significant advantages in comparison to other milling methods currently on the market:

1. Advantage with "Soft" Materials 

One of the most outstanding advantages of the Vortex mill is that it can replace cryogenic milling with room-temperature milling or, in some cases, milling with air-cooling but only to a certain extent.

2. Powder Quality 

In numerous cases were we able to solve milling problems relating to the quality powder aspect.  The Super Fine Vortex mill also offers a solution to the problem of powder quality; we can reassure customers from the electronics and the pharmaceutical industries that the material we mill is with high quality. 

3. Milling in a Single Stage

Super Fine’s SINGLE stage process means that there is no need to conduct an additional classification process. ALL the milled material falls into a narrow size distribution so that when we say that the d50 = X, we mean that ALL the milled material has a d50 of X.  This is in contrast to many milling methods, which require that a selection and classification process be conducted after the milling process in order to obtain the desired d50. 

4. Economic

Due to the facts that we are using less energy, all the materials comes out in the same size, no need for addition classification stage and in those cases in which we can replace cryogenic process –

In many cases we can get a better quality powder with a process that costs much less!
