The R&D Grinding Unit FPX is a variant of the Forplex Universal Mill (FNG). Presenting the same characteristics as the FNG, it allows however the processing of larger batches than FNG00 or BLX. This mobile grinding unit is used for small industrial productions.
As others laboratory mills, the FPX main body is made of a machined 316L stainless steel single block, without any wielding, in order to avoid any product retention inside the mill. It may be installed in various ways, according to requirements :
- On a mobile platform,
- In a closed (mobile) unit
- Within the production line
Finally, The FPX enables processing of thermo-sensitive products, or of products that present a risk of explosion or combustion when in contact with oxygen (ATEX Certification).
The product is fed at the centre of the mill. Grinding is achieved by impact and by projection between the grinding tools on the rotor, which rotate at a high speed, and the fixed tools. The fineness of the processed material may be adjusted according to the type and dimensions of the holes in the removable sieving screen.
