Cryogenic grinding can achieve finer powder, increased yield and throughputs. It also helps with protecting the quality of temperature sensitive products (i.e., proteins).

A cryogenic milling operation is very similar to a normal, ambient grinding operation. It can be set up in many different ways, but the basic components may include: the mill, a cryogenic conveyor, liquid nitrogen flow controls, a liquid nitrogen supply system, and then other supporting equipment common to normal, ambient grinding operations.
