Cone Mills

Introduction

The Uni-Mill conical screen mill draws upon Hanningfield’s wealth of experience in size reduction for the process industries.

Conical screen or 'cone-milling' is ideal for achieving a fine, uniform particle size. By combining high throughput and high efficiency, the low energy Uni-Mill is perfect for the pharmaceutical, food, chemical and consumer goods industries.

The Uni-Mill is designed and manufactured by Hanningfield Process Systems at our UK Headquarters.

The Uni-Mill conical screen mill balances performance with simplicity, to provide a solution that guarantees a high throughput but is easy to operate, clean and maintain. This durable design makes the Uni-Mill extremely reliable, perfect for even the most demanding of processing requirements.

The Uni-Mill is suited to dry, wet or fine milling in the pharmaceutical, food, chemical and consumer goods industries. The mill can easily be adapted for use on different products, simply by changing the granulating screen, presenting a cost-effective solution to your size reduction requirement.

The Uni-Mill is available in various sizes to ensure all equipment is tailored to a customer’s specific requirements.
