Dual Force

Double working power immersion basket mill

Dual Force double working power immersion Basket Mills are outstanding energy-efficient and ultra-fine grinding machines.

This system is designed taking advantage of the double force of two independent engines with separate drives for grinding and mixing. The special design allows to optimize product circulation inside the vessel taking care of different flow behavior without changing the grinding maximum allowed speed.

Equipped with an energy-efficient grinding chamber and two lateral agitators, they can grind large batches up to 1500 lt and reduce total energy consumption, grinding time and the number of microspheres used compared to similar machines.

Main advantages

  • Innovative technology enabling industry 4.0 that optimizes business processes in terms of management time, costs and quality
  • Continuous process control thanks to internal PLC
  • Total integration with the production flow and the company ERP
  • Efficient recipe management, high product repeatability and reduction of production waste
  • Minimization of breakdowns and unwanted downtime by predictive maintenance indicators
  • Remote assistance for immediate customer support
  • Larger batches with low engine power (1000 L with 30 kW)
  • Processing products with a wide range of viscosities
  • Grinding time reduced by up to 50%
  • Simple mounting, easy to maintain and inspect
  • Fine grinding and narrow particle size distribution
  • Cleaning time reduced by 60%
  • Energy savings of up to 40%
  • 70% fewer microspheres
  • Coated grinding chamber for controlled temperature processing
