Product Description

The Ultraplex UPZ Fine Impact Mill is a versatile but simple to operate size reduction system with exchangeable grinding elements.

This impact mill’s versatility comes from the easily interchangeable milling elements, making the machine adaptable to suit a wide variety of feed materials.

Ultraplex UPZ Mills can be equipped as pin mills without a sieve, with one rotating pin disc and one stationary one. They can also be equipped as a beater mill with a beater disc, swing, or plate beater unit, for operation with grinding tracks or sieves. The overall result is a host of practice-oriented and perfectly coordinated equipment combinations.

In short, the Alpine Ultraplex UPZ Fine Impact Mill can be tailored to match the individual requirements of every customer. The versatility of different available milling elements fulfils a wide variety of demands on the end-product, for example:

  • High fineness with sharp top cut
  • Products that are low in fines with good flow properties
  • Production of powders with a high bulk density
  • Production of powders with a high mass fraction within a defined particle size range
