Highly-Efficient Combination Dissolver & Basket Mill Introduced
BYK-Gardner Brings to Market VMA-Getzmann TORUSMILL TM Combination Dissolver & Basket Mill
By: BYK-Gardner USA
The revolutionary technology in dispersion, the 2-in-1 TORUSMILL system uses a single, closed-container for both pre-dispersion with an impeller disk, and subsequent milling with an integrated basket mill.
"This is a major advancement in dispersion technology aimed to save time, space and manufacturing costs," states Andreas Stummer, BYK-Gardner Business Line Manager for Dispersion.
The systems pre-dispersion is achieved in the traditional manner with a centrally mounted impeller disc. For fine dispersion the centrally mounted basket mill is lowered into the millbase. With this system very fine particle size (even nano), and narrow particle size distribution are achievable in a short time.
The 2-in-1 TORUSMILL has a container capacity of up to 2,000 liters.
BYK is one of the world's leading suppliers in the field of additives and measuring instruments. Additives are chemical substances which, when used in small quantities, improve product properties such as scratch resistance or surface gloss. Manufacturing processes are also optimized by the addition of additives.
The coatings, inks, and plastics industries are among the main consumers of BYK additives. Yet with the production of oil and gas, the manufacture of care products, the production of adhesives and sealants, and construction chemistry, too, BYK additives improve the product characteristics and production processes. Testing and measuring instruments from BYK can effectively evaluate the quality of color, gloss, and appearance as well as the physical properties of paint, plastic, and paper products and are an important part of quality control.
As a globally operating specialty chemicals company, BYK has production sites in Wesel, Kempen, Moosburg, Schkopau and Geretsried (Germany), Deventer, Denekamp and Nijverdal (Netherlands)
Today the company employs around 2,200 people worldwide and forms part of the ALTANA Group.
