Pulverizers for polymers and other materials
In the pulverizers segment, MAAG offers a wide range of pulverizers for different throughput ranges and applications. Our state-of-the-art product portfolio is based on 30 years of research, development, ongoing system improvement, and in-depth know-how in the grinding of plastics and other materials. The range of pulverizers extends from units for small throughputs such as for laboratory or pilot plant operations to pulverizer systems for medium to high throughputs. Key process parameters are the pulverizer disk geometry, the grinding gap setting, the feed rate of the input material, the temperature in the grinding chamber, and the screen fineness. Our pulverizer systems are characterized by high efficiency and top performance in terms of the ratio of produced kilograms to consumed energy.
Lab Pulverizer REX tech
The REX tech, our lab scale pulverizer, makes sampling and trials for R&D fast and simple. Depending on the selected equipment, the REX tech can be cooled with ambient air or nitrogen. This versatile plastic pulverizer can service a wide variety of applications in which top-quality sample powders are required. Almost anything can be trialed… [...]
Pulverizer REX basic
The REX basic pulverizer was designed for users who do not require tight particle distribution specification. It can be used to pulverize a wide variety of materials. This air-cooled pulverizer serves compounding, extrusion, molding, and recycling markets. To further enhance its process capabilities, several different process cooling innovations can be added to the machine. Some… [...]
Pulverizing System 85XLP
The pulverizing system 85XLP, with its compact design, is the perfect fit for the medium throughput range or the ideal solution for in-house production. This unit of the plastic pulverizer, with its integrated PLC controls, assures fully automatic production at a high level with very little operating effort. As with all of our pulverizers, this… [...]
Pulverizing System REX duo
The REX duo series serves the demanding end user with expectations of best quality powder and highest throughput rates. Efficient utilization of its entire available power makes the REX duo Series the most economical ambient pulverizer in relation to kilograms produced versus power consumed. A small footprint (owing to its very compact dimensions) make this… [...]
Our cryogenic plastic pulverizing system uses liquid nitrogen to cool down the feed material prior to and/or during milling to either help prevent its melting or decomposition, or achieve embrittlement. Because each product is unique, therefor throughput rates for powder production vary from those achieved with ambient air. [...]
Pulverizer for laboratories
The Maag laboratory pulverizer offers the versatility and flexibility required for laboratory and pilot plant applications. It can be operated at both ambient and cryogenic temperatures. Maag laboratory pulverizers can be used to grind polymers ranging from synthetic resins to rubber to adhesives, as well as pharmaceuticals, and even including food grades, into top-quality powder.
Pulverizer for a wide variety of applications
The REX basic pulverizer is designed for applications that do not demand a particularly tight grain size distribution. This makes it ideal for processing a wide variety of materials, especially in polymer compounding, extrusion, mold-making, and recycling.
Compact pulverizer 85XLP
Compact pulverizers are the perfect solution for medium throughput ranges, and are ideal for in-house production. The 85XLP multi-purpose pulverizers enable fully automatic production in the medium throughput range, with maximum quality performance and low operating cost. They are also the ideal solution for in-house production. Quick cleandowns and short changeover times are further benefits.
High-performance pulverizers for high demands
We meet demands for top powder quality and extraordinarily high throughput rates with our high-performance pulverizers. That improves efficiency in terms of the ratio of produced powder to required energy. Highly demanding powder producers, in particular, benefit from the performance of the pulverizer and the compact footprint of the plant.
Cryogenic pulverizers for temperature-sensitive materials
The cryogenic Maag pulverizer uses liquid nitrogen to cool the input material before and/or during the grinding process. The extremely low temperature prevents melting of materials with a low melting point and leads to finer grains.
Accessories for pulverizers
Special retrofit kits allow the use of disposable disk technology even in pulverizers already in service. Our patented disposable pulverizer disks eliminate the need for the costly and time-consuming external sharpening process. The disposable pulverizer disks are simply replaced by new ones. The new pulverizer disks are thinner and lighter. Their light weight also improves handling during installation and removal, and reduces modification times correspondingly.
The COLORex color mixer is a great alternative to conventional high-speed mixers. The mixing process is directly downstream of the grinding process. Both dry and liquid pigments can be used for coloring. Typical cleaning times of a conventional system are shortened by the COLORex.
