The latest high temperature processing technology, from drying specialists Hosokawa Micron B.V., enables processors to impart different properties and altered characteristics in materials to generate custom powders of high value. Alternatively, by increasing the process heat up to 325°C processors may achieve time and cost efficiencies, over more traditional processing models.

With a range of technologies available, enabling vacuum, atmospheric and pressurised processing, Hosokawa Micron B.V. can offer a unique single or multi-processing flexibility to meet exacting customer requirements.

Areas of specialist expertise include post polymerisation heat treatments capable of changing material characteristics and evaporation – with the benefit of both being carried out in a single closed system. Accurate temperature and process control combined with the ability to deliver various temperatures at different times, creates limitless opportunities for those wishing to design materials having specific characteristics. Experience with a wide range of engineered polymers with special purpose applications in aerospace and Formula 1 offer customers an efficient route to producing a high quality, technically valuable end product.

Hosokawa Micron B.V.’s expertise in catalyst production, specifically an energy efficient approach to transforming carrier materials to the required consistency and the impregnation of active components, typically precious metals, onto carrier materials is achieving high value results in petrochemical and other specialised applications.
