Wet & Dry Milling: Corundum-, Colloid Milling and Dry Grinding – IKA Process Newsletter 07/2014


Dear Valued Customer,
The machine program of IKA®, is as diverse as the mixing industry itself. We specialize in solving the most difficult mixing applications for the processing industries. From low to extreme high shear mixers, in-line mixers, batch mixers, colloid mills and turnkey systems, IKA® offers innovative and proven technology that is specifically designed for the unique requirements of the chemical, pharmaceutical, cosmetic & food industries.
Corundum Disk Mill MCD

The Corundum Disk Mills are excellent for difficult-to-mill natural products and homogenization over a wide viscosity range. The adjustable grinding gap, along with selectable stones of various coarseness provide maximum flexibility for achieving product consistency. The ultra fine milling capability provides consistent batch-to-batch results and is fully scalable.

Ideal for Fine Milling of:

Mustard · Chili · Spice Pastes &middot Nuts &middot Cocoa ·

Coffee · Beans · Seeds · Grains · Fruits · Vegetables · Fish pastes

Colloid Mill MK

The colloid mill MK 2000 is especially designed for the production of colloidal solutions, or extremely fine emulsions and suspensions. The high tip speeds, combined with an extremely small shear gap, produces intense friction on the material being processed. The friction and shear that result is commonly referred to as wet milling. The rotor and stator are cone shaped, and have three stages of increasingly fine serrations, or grooves. The stator can be infinitely adjusted to obtain the desired gap setting between the rotor and stator. The grooves change directions in each stage for increased turbulence. With high quality finishes and materials, the MK tool offers an
extremely efficient milling geometry.

Dry Mill PilotinaIKA® Pilotina MUThe universal 2 in 1 mill for dry products

The IKA® Pilotina MU is the optimal solution for most milling applications. The modular design allows an easy modification from the impact to cutting mill and vice versa within the shortest possible time. The advantages: one machine, two milling principles, without making any compromises with regards to disintegration quality. Due to the powerful, frequency controlled 5 hp drive with digital indication, the circumferential speed of the tool can be adjusted to the required milling process in a way that is optimal for the particular application needs.



IKA® Pilotina MC

The cutting mill system

The dry mill IKA® Pilotina MC is the preeminent choice for the disintegration of smooth, sticky, elastic or fibrous materials such as plant parts, plastics, food pellets and much more. The design guarantees an excellent milling quality, a precisely defined final particle fineness, as well as an easy and quick cleaning process after milling.

IKA® Pilotina MIThe Impact Milling system

The dry mill IKA® Pilotina MI is the foremost option for the disintegration of hard and brittle materials e.g. coal, glass, ore and/or seeds. The product is disintegrated quickly due to the geometry of the milling space and the fast rotating impact rotor. The final particle fineness can be precisely adjusted via the sieve that is inserted into the milling chamber. In addition, high-quality surfaces make cleaning easier after the milling process.
