Particle Size Reduction Solutions for the Food Industry

Nitrogen enabled solutions for a safe and effective fine grinding process

Are you currently fine grinding your products, but are not achieving the desired particle size, shape or production rate?

Are you looking to fine grind a product that is either fragile or heat sensitive and you would like to ensure that you preserve its quality, taste and aroma?

Or are you looking to grind into powder a product that may be prone to dust explosion hazards?

Used in gaseous form for its inert properties or in liquid form for its relatively cold energy, our food grade nitrogen can help you with your particle size reduction challenges. Whether you need to grind spices, coffee or fats, we have the know-how and expertise to help you all along the way.

Our Nitrogen Empowered Particle Size Reduction Solutions

Inert Grinding

To prevent unwanted reactions such as oxidisation or dust explosions

Temperature Controlled Grinding

To prevent material degradation or ensure an optimal size reduction process

Full Cryogenic Grinding

To cryogenically freeze tough to grind materials before entering the mill for a finer and more uniform particle size

Membrane Systems

The PRISM® membrane separators contain thousands of asymmetric hollow fibers that act as a molecular filter. When high-pressure gas mixtures enter the separator, the gas components divide as a result of selective permeation.

Liquid tanks with adsorber vessels and a main air compressor

PSA Systems

Our proprietary PRISM® Nitrogen Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) Systems are available in a wide range of models that can be customised to suit each customer's application requirements. 

our recommended modes of supply

Onsite gas production plant within a fenced in enclosure

VSA Oxygen Generator

On-site production is often the best supply option for medium to larger oxygen requirements. Power efficient vacuum swing adsorption generators offer flexible on-site supply solutions.  When you buy oxygen under an on-site agreement, you will join customers in over 50 countries who count on Air Products.

ASUs at Hull with LOX/Lin and Argon tanks

Large Cryogenic Systems

Air separation plants are especially built for customers with large demands of gases per day. Power-efficient offer flexible on-site supply solutions with a possibility co-production of other gases as nitrogen or argon.
