Hosokawa Micron’s Equipment and Technology Development Considering SDGs Read more
Editor's pick

As a powder processing machine and system manufacturer, efforts are being made to improve energy efficiency from the perspective of SDGs. It is aimed to further improve the efficiency by using hot air for the jet mill, which is generally considered to have low energy efficiency, and by improving the impact type pulverizer with a built-in classifier. In addition, remote monitoring of plant operations and data collection systems using online digital technology are expected to be further developed in the future from the viewpoint of labor cost reduction.

Tasks of Powder Process for Connecting World Read more
Editor's pick

With the progress of IoT(Internet of Things), we are now in a "connected world" in various fields using online. Demands and expected technologies related to powder processes are being examined from the viewpoint of both product quality and energy consumption for the production. The on-line and in-line measuring devices and technologies for powders required to realize these are introduced along with remote monitoring systems that utilize big data. They seem to become more and more useful in the future for the process optimization.

Drying Technology as a Measure against Global Warming Read more
Editor's pick

As a part of measures against global warming, in the drying system, which consumes a large amount of heat energy in addition to mechanical energy in the powder process, a high-performance pulverization and classification mechanism is used, and the hot air that was previously discarded from the system is returned to the furnace for effective utilization of thermal energy. At that time, the water content of the circulating hot air increases and condensation tends to easily occur, so attention is paid to dew point control and dew condensation countermeasures within the system. In this way, energy saving and CO2 reduction are achieved for the entire system.
