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

EXAKT Results

EXAKT Results

EXAKT three roll mills deliver results that are consistent and reproducible.

  • Process materials accurately and dependably, including Nanoparticles
  • Narrowest particle distribution
  • No separation
  • Processing down to 5 ml, virtually loss-free
  • Minimal cleaning losses
  • Durable mills mean low operating costs

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.

Substance processed with an EXAKT three roll mill: regular and fine consistency of the substance

EXAKT Mills Get Results

EXAKT three ointment mills deliver results that are consistent and reproducible.

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

  • The 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.
  • Ointment mills allow for quality control during processing.

What does an ointment mill do?

An ointment mill utilizes high shear force to disperse active ingredients, and homogenize viscous materials.

Shear force is created by three horizontally positioned rollers rotating in opposite directions and at different speeds relative to each other.

The product is pulled through the gaps between the rollers. Active ingredients and powder clumps are broken up and homogenized, which removes grittiness and results in a high-quality topical.  This gives your customers a pharmaceutically elegant and effective ointment.

The EXAKT 120EH-450 Three Roll Mill

The EXAKT 120EH-450 is the highest performance three roll mill of the E-Line series. Developed for production, the mill offers options for the automatic filling, monitoring, and cooling. The electronic control concept enables the precise setting of all relevant processing parameters. Recurrent production processes can also be programmed and all operating parameters continuously stored. This means they are available at any time for documentation or for subsequent analysis of the results. Reproducible, consistent and documented quality is the precondition for efficient production.

  • Achievable fineness of less than 1 μm
  • Gap or power mode optionally selectable per gap
  • One-pass calibration – automatic adjustment of the spacing and parallelism of the rollers
  • Electronic display of all operating parameters
  • DataLog – documentation of processing parameters
  • Throughput up to 14 or 27.5 l/h with a gap width of 5 μm
  • Roller temperature control for optimum process control
  • Safe working – overload protection, cleaning and reverse mode
  • Scale-up from the laboratory to production
