Three Roll Mill Applications

From the food industry to nanotechnology, EXAKT three roll mills are used in a wide variety of industrial and research applications. No matter which paste must be processed, the EXAKT three roll mills can break open all kinds of agglomerates. This creates substances of the greatest fineness and quality.

  • Adhesives: conductive, filled, underfills
  • Colors: inks, coatings paints
  • Cosmetics: lipsticks, eyeliner, makeup
  • Dental: gels, pastes, restorative materials
  • Electronics: flux, metal or carbon pastes
  • Grease and lubrication
  • Nano Technologies: graphene, CNT, ceramics

Conventional Mixing vs. EXAKT Milling

A comparative study conducted at the University of Hamburg, Institute of Pharmacy in Hamburg Germany concluded that the quality of compounds processed with three roll mills is better than those processed with electric mixing systems.

  • Particle size is smaller.
  • Particle size distribution is narrow.
  • Ointment stability is better.
  • Temperatures do not increase significantly during processing.
  • Ointments are softer consistency with lower flow limits
  • Three roll mills allow for quality control during processing.

 

Substance processed with conventional mixing procedure: crystalline substances are still clearly visible.

EXAKT’s Pathology Saw is Easy to Operate

Key elements of the saw such as doors, the top of the work table or the upper pulley of the saw blade are easy to remove without tools and can be cleaned under running water. Rinsing immediately after use removes any tissue residues from the band, subsequent samples are not affected and the overall system is far easier to clean.

  • Tool-less band replacement
  • Automatic band tension adjustment
  • Adjustable band speed
  • Stainless Steel design – fast to clean and hygienic

EXAKT Three Roll Mills for Carbon Applications

Why should you be using an EXAKT three roll mill for your carbon application? Some of the process advantages include:

  • Disperse the difficult – tangled CNT, especially in viscous pastes such as Epoxy and Silicone.
  • Exfoliate graphite-based materials without destroying the plate-like structure.
  • Control the level of dispersion.

EXAKT’s electronic models (80E Plus, and 120E) give the most precise control and repeatability.
