Particle Size Reduction for Pharmaceuticals

A cost-effective way to achieve required particle sizes and production rates

Do you need help grinding your materials?

Air Products’ cryogenic grinding solutions can help you achieve the highest yield of very fine particles and most uniform particle distribution while maximising production rates and minimising overall operational costs.

Our solutions use liquid nitrogen to remove the heat produced in the grinding process.

Liquid nitrogen either helps prevent melting or decomposition of your materials, or achieving embrittlement prior to or during milling.

The Major Benefits of Cryogenic Grinding are:

  • Higher yield of particles in your target range
  • More uniform particle size distribution
  • Higher production rates
  • Improved product quality
  • Improved process safety due to the nitrogen inertness

From cryogenic services, industrial gas supply, to complete cryogenic systems, you can rely on Air Products experienced engineers to help you find the best solution for your process.
