A new pharmaceutical-grade Pin-Mill, model CIM-18-S316 from Munson Machinery, grinds friable powders, flakes and granules into controlled particle sizes ranging from coarse to fine. Unlike conventional Pin Mills in which the static outer disc is removable but the inner rotating disc is not, the outer and inner discs can swing away from the unit on cantilevered arms, providing full access to both sides of both discs and the mill housing for rapid cleaning and sanitizing. High-speed rotation of the inner disc creates centrifugal force that accelerates bulk material entering the central inlet of the opposing stationary disc. Aas material travels from the center of the periphery of the discs at high speed, it passes through a path of five intermeshing rows of precision-machined rotating and stationary impactor pins, with the desired tight particle size distribution obtained by controlling the rotor speed.
