KTV can provide you with quality roller mill grinding equipment benefitting from the latest technological advances. This technology is designed to produce uniform particle sizes with a minimal generation of "fines" for thousands of applications where particle size reduction is required.
Among these applications we have:
- Food Grinding
- Chemical Milling and Grinding
- Mineral Grinding
KTV offers several grinder models from MPE "Modern Process Equipment Corporation". These Gran-U-Lizer grinders are using roller mill technology and are designed for the food industry.
For each model of grinder several options are available:
- Electroless nickel construction
- Large doors for easy cleaning
- Stainless steel contact parts
- TEFC motors
- Wash down materials
Common food applications include:
- Flax Seed
- Sweeteners (Aspartame, Sorbitol...)
- Various Spices (Nutmeg, Coriander...)
KTV also offers Gran-U-Lizer grinders which are used in numerous chemical milling, chemical grinding and pulverizing applications wherein final product yield and a minimization of fines are essential.
Available options in addition to those found in the food industry include:
- Explosion-proof controls
- Inert gas grinding chambers
Typical applications are dry, friable materials such as:
- Activated Carbon
- Coke (Metallurgical, Petroleum)
- Phenolic Resins
- Super Absorbents (SAP)
From basic roll crusher to the most automated equipment design, KTV offers a Gran-U-Lizer grinder that is ideal for a multitude of mineral grinding applications where final product yield and a minimization of fines are essential.
Available mineral grinding options, in addition to those found in the food grinding, chemical milling and grinding applications options, include:
- Heavy-Duty bearing
- Drive components
Typical applications for dry, friable materials such as:
- Bentonite Clay
- Limestone / Calcium Carbonate
- Rock Salt
- Silicon Metal
Gran-U-Lizer grinders offer unique grinding capability when compared to traditional cone mill or hammer mill grinders. Gran-U-Lizers increase particle size uniformity, minimize fines, lower grind temperatures and maximize process repeatability.
KTV offers a pharmaceutical line of Gran-U-Lizers to handle:
- Dry dosage applications
- Active ingredients
- Dry Chemicals
- Numerous Drug Products
- Human Cortical and Bovine Cortical Bone
- Animal Health Products
Common applications for pharmaceutical grinder include:
- Full cGMP compliance
- The most accurate particle size results attainable
- Minimal generation of "fines"
- Cool, low impact size reduction
- High efficiency, low energy process
- Easy cleaning features
- Washdown capability
- Inert processing
- Water and glycol cooled equipment
KTV can help you to choose the best grinder for your application among our five kinds of grinder models described below.
1) Single Stage Gran-U-Lizer
Single Stage Gran-U-Lizer with optional integrated sifter offers the highest degree of particle size accuracy attainable. Gradual reduction of only oversized particles virtually eliminates the generation of unwanted "fines". Remaining oversized particles are continuously recycled through the Gran-U-Lizer until they fall within the desired target range.
2) Multiple Stage Gran-U-Lizer
Multiple Stage Granulize designs (IMD 69.3 Series shown) are ideally suited for single-pass size reduction applications requiring accurate particle sizing. Gran-U-Lizer designs are optimally configured for each application and offer adjustment settings to meet required target size ranges.
- Double Stage
- Three Stage
- Four Stage
- Five Stage
3) Laboratory & Pilot Gran-U-Lizer
The versatile Model 6.5 Gran-U-Lizer is designed to obtain a superior particle size reduction. This model achieves superior grind uniformity with fewer unwanted "fines", if compared to conventional grinding equipment such as hammermills, fitzmills and other attrition type grinding methodologies.
The model 6.5 can be easily configured to grind a wide range product and target grind sizes, such as:
- Drug Products
- Food Products
- Extruded and Compacted Materials
4) Industrial Gran-U-Lizer
Industrial Gran-U-Lizer with high capacity: Model IMD 1042 and 1052 roller style Gran-U-Lizers provide precisely controlled uniform particle size distribution, with fewer unwanted fines, in even the most demanding industrial applications, and designed for use where exact particle size distributions are desired.
5) Disc-Style Grinder
The Model GPX provides a high degree of versatility in the size reduction of a broad spectrum of materials. This compact grinder specializes in a variety of grinding applications including:
- Food Aggregates
Ruggedly constructed, GPX features diamond hard grinding discs that are precision cut to optimize their cutting "action" for a better end product with an increased production capability, if compared to hammermill, at a fraction of the price.
Designed to grind over 500 lbs. per hour of particles up to ½" in diameter and with reduction capabilities to 150 mesh, the GPX utilizes a convenient dial control to determine each grind. The GPX is currently used in hundreds of types of applications and can produce results that meet most requirements.
