BRISTOL, PA. — Kemutec, a member of the Schenck Process Group, on April 28 rolled out its KEK Cone Mill solution designed to grind difficult-to-handle ingredients, such as fatty, heat-sensitive, sticky or moist materials, in energy-efficient ways.

This grinding solution uses a gentle process resulting in minimal noise, dust and heat issues. It produces particles in a narrow size range with minimal fines generation, while reducing material build-up and heat generation.

“For many years, small, medium and large manufacturers in the powder and bulk processing industries throughout North America relied on Kemutec’s versatile, intermediate energy cone mill to meet their unique and challenging process requirements,” said Karin Galloway, executive director of sales for Kemutec North America.

KEK Cone Mills feature “ultra-hygienic” designs for sanitation and cleanability, featuring 304- and 316-grade stainless steel. They can be cleaned using high-pressure hoses. Access covers and motor shrouds can be easily removed for cleaning, according to Kemutec.

The systems are available in seven sizes, from 3-inch to 25-inch cone diameters. Process rates reach up to 15 tons per hour. Individual systems are customizable to meet processors’ specific needs.
