Air Products expands portfolio of size reduction offerings with the addition of an ultra-fine grinding mill. This patented mill is capable of processing material at throughputs ranging from just a few kilograms to over 1000 kilograms per hour.

Alan Barton, CEO of Lehigh Technologies, commented, “Lehigh is happy to team up with Air Products, a global technology leader that shares our drive for developing innovative and sustainable solutions. We look forward to working with Air Products.”

Georges Decrop, Global Marketing Director for Air Products, agreed, “Air Products is pleased to strengthen our position in offering cryogenic grinding solutions to any market where size reduction is required.”

He continued, “Our 40 years of experience in applying cryogenics to grinding technologies, combined with our capability to test grind product samples at our commercial-scale laboratory, enables Air Products to recommend the most cost-effective size reduction processes to meet our customers’ need.”

The mill, licensed from Lehigh Technologies, Inc, can produce a high yield of micron-scaled powders with a narrow particle size distribution, while maximising production rates and minimizing overall operational costs. Lehigh Technologies was recently recognized as a 2010 Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum.
