Products

Hosokawa Micron specialises in producing equipment for powder and particle processing, hygienic filling and weighing, as well as containment and plastic processing. We design, build, and install this range of equipment for clients across a wide range of industries. Our customers are situated in the UK and Ireland as well as a number of overseas countries. We can install small R&D commissions or full turnkey installations – backed by the global resources of our Japanese parent Hosokawa Group.

Industries – Agro-Chemicals

We design and manufacture equipment for the Agro-Chemicals industry with a special focus on size reduction features, separation of chemicals, air classification, mixing, conveying, product collection, and feeding. Agro-Chemical clients typically use these fathers for fertilisers, insecticides, and pesticides, as well as other uses.

Industries – Ceramics

The ceramics industry demands high fineness and high purity in its processing equipment. We are pleased to offer a wide range of heavy-duty products that can process very hard, high-tech ceramics of any kind for a maximum powder fineness. These systems are designed to reduce any risk of iron contamination; we have a range of linings available depending on the ceramic material characteristics. Please visit our website to inspect the huge range of products available for this industry.

Industries – Chemicals

Moderns chemicals processing equipment requires features designed with environmental protection in mind. The chemicals industry is required to meet high standards on emission rates and noise control. Chemical processing equipment also needs to protect against fires and explosions – flammable materials and dust building up are hazards. Hosokawa’s efforts to meet these needs means that our equipment conforms to all European regulations while offering excellent quality to our clients. Please visit our website to inspect the huge range of products available for this industry.

Industries – Cosmetics

Cosmetics manufacturing requires a huge range of base materials in a powder form. Product specifications, which vary endlessly in the industry, determine the machines used for their mixing. Hosokawa supplies complete solutions for formulating powdery cosmetics – from research to production. Talcum powder, eye shadow, and dental care products, are just some examples. Please visit our website to inspect the huge range of products available for this industry.

Industries – Food

Hosokawa has developed a range of processing systems to deal with the high quality grades demanded of food processing and production. We offer machines for highly automated food processing and manufacture. And all of our equipment conforms to GMP and FDA regulations for hygiene and sanitation. Our equipment can help with steam sterilisation and cryogenic grinding of spices, grinding cocoa powder from press cake and chocolate crumb, shifting protein in flour, sugar grinding, and pureeing vegetables and fruit. Please visit our website to inspect the huge range of products available for this industry.

Industries – Metals

Metal powders and powder fineness all demand a high level of purity and cleanliness. Hosokawa produces processing machines capable of recovering powders from the grinding process at maximum levels of purity. Metal oxides can be reduced to an ultra fine size, and our machines offer ultra fine sieving, air classification for deducting and other applications, as well as cleaning metallic alloys. Please visit our website to inspect the huge range of products available for this industry.

Industries – Minerals

Hosokawa offers a full processing system for producing mineral powders – while doing it reliably and at a low operational cost.

Industries – Pharmaceuticals

Pharmaceuticals, along with the food industry, has some of the highest safety standards of any industry. As such, the processing equipment used in the industry must also be at the highest standard. We offer a full range of services for process technology, machine design, and engineering, to meet the standards from the cGMP, GAMP, and the FDA. And we work with our clients to build systems for the high requirements of both primary and secondary production stages. Our containment solutions include isolator glove boxes, downflow, and laminator booths. Please visit our website to inspect the huge range of products available for this industry.

Industries – Pigments

Milling pigments demands that primary particles, which have been agglomerated together in the manufacturing process, are loosened up and then ground to a find powder. Deposits can form if pigments have not been properly loosened and ground. Hosokawa offers a range of products for all stages of pigment processing – from prebreaking to ultra fine milling and classification. We offer a full system for mineral colourants, black colourants, and dyes. Please visit our website to inspect the huge range of products available for this industry.

We sell products that are easy to use, safe and reliable, and that do not take up inordinate space on a processing line. Please visit our website to inspect the huge range of products available for this industry.

Industries – Powder Coating

The powder coating industry is one of Hosokawa’s longest-standing and most significant areas of interest. We offer technologies and products for a broad range of applications in fine grinding work; and we are proud to say that no oversize particles can be expected in one pass of the processing offered by our equipment. Our particles can be ground to 15-35µ or even finer. We also offer laminar flow booths and fill/weigh systems. Please visit our website to inspect the huge range of products available for this industry.

Industries – Rubber

Hosokawa has a long history of supplying equipment to the rubber industry. Rubbers most often come in “bales” which then need to be reduced in size to facilitate blending or dissolving with other ingredients. We include granulators in our range of rubber processing equipment – ideal for granulating all kinds of synthetic and natural caoutchouc in bale or strip form. We also offer equipment for processing vulcanised and non-vulcanised rubber wastes. High impact polymers, butyrate’s, and nitriles, are all typical applications. Please visit our website to inspect the huge range of products available for this industry.

Industries – Soap and Detergent

We supply a range of processing equipment for the production of soap and detergent. This industry is characterised by a series of key processing operations – with the size and complexity of these operations varying from plant to plant. Hosokawa has designed and installed a number of production lines for soaps and detergents. We include as an essential features agglomeration and mixing technologies at the core of the processing operation. Please visit our website to inspect the huge range of products available for this industry.

Industries – Toner

Hosokawa offers processing equipment to deal with the raw materials that go into printer toner and that can handle the refined powder at the end of the process. Our equipment can help processing, from ultra fine size reduction, to classification, agglomeration, and mixing. Please visit our website to inspect the huge range of products available for this industry.

Technologies – Agglomeration and Compaction

Handling powders, dusts, and slurries, all pose significant processing challenges to industry. Our experience in agglomeration and compaction means that we can provide excellent technical and economical solutions for specific powder applications.
