Capabilities

Micropowders invests in the most advanced milling equipment available whether that be to mill, handle, blend, package or analyse product on behalf of our customers. Materials can be milled, tested and measured, using the latest in laser diffraction analysing systems (within a range of 0.02 to 2000 microns).

Our machines range from a 100mm Lab Mill to a 400kW Programmable Logic Controlled production system. This allows us to achieve production rates of up to 2000 kilos per hour at less than 20 micron.

Micropowders has the ability to produce products with minimal fines and no oversize, and works closely with clients to produce the final product in the most cost-effective manner. We can mill materials down to particle sizes of micron or sub micron, with averages of 75+ microns at rates of up to 2 tonnes per hour.

With each of our clients, an appropriate testing methodology is jointly developed and applied to suit their product. This ensures that test information provided is accurate, reliable and has real meaning.

Our Testing methodologies include Laser Defraction Testing and Electron Scanning Microscopic Imaging.
