NETZSCH Grinding & Dispersing on the ACHEMA 2009

More than 173,000 visitors from all over the world visited the 3,767 exhibitors on the ACHEMA 2009 in the different halls on the exhibition grounds in Frankfurt during five days to catch up on the latest products and technologies in chemical engineering, biotechnology, environmental protection and adjoining branches of industry.

The Business Unit Grinding & Dispersing a member of the NETZSCH Group and a leading manufacturer in mechanical process engineering presented their machines on a joint booth of their companies NETZSCH-Feinmahltechnik GmbH and NETZSCH-CONDUX Mahltechnik GmbH. The worldwide acting mechanical engineering company NETZSCH delivers a positive summary of the event: The number of visitors and the quality of the contacts was significantly above the expectations based on the current economical situation.

Besides the presentation of the newly developed grinding process s-Jet® the highlights on the booth were the Nano Mill Zeta RS and the display model of the Horizontal Agitator Bead Mill Type LME 30. The latter one was equipped with a transparent grinding chamber enabling the visitors to convince themselves of the efficiency of the centrifugal separating system by pressing the start button.

The topic steam and s-Jet® was not only in the focus on the booth but also on the company grounds of NETZSCH-CONDUX Mahltechnik GmbH where the inhouse event “s-Jet® goes live!” met with great interest. NETZSCH organized the live demonstration of the new laboratory grinding plant s-Jet® 500 to take place at the same time as the ACHEMA and offered a shuttle service from Frankfurt to the nearby situated premises in Hanau. The live demonstrations were accompanied by lectures on the newly developed s-Jet® grinding process, where the product is ground in fluidized bed jet mills using overheated steam. All participants were very enthusiastic about the laboratory grinding plant installed in Hanau and the advantages resulting from this new process with regard to energy efficiency and fineness (< 1 µm).
