This sieve mill challenges agglutinated products

The formation of agglomerates can make additional processing of materials difficult and can negatively affect the quality of the final product. The Conika sieve mill solves this problem, by preventing powders and granules from forming agglomerates during storage, and thus minimizes loss for further processing. The internal rotor of the Conika shears the material through a conical sieve. The conical shape reduces the friction in the process and thus keeps the energy input into the product to a minimum. This results in less warming of the product. All wetted parts, including the sieve, are stainless steel. — IKA Werke GmbH & Co. KG, Staufen, Germany
