LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., June 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Particle size reduction can present challenges to processors in a variety of industries—including rubber, plastics, food, and pharmaceuticals—particularly when working with heat-sensitive and tough-to-mill materials. To help processors overcome some of these challenges, Air Products (NYSE: APD) will share its cryogenic grinding solutions through a free webinar, "The Fundamentals of Cryogenic Grinding," on Wednesday, June 22, from 2-3 p.m. ET.
Air Products is a recognized leader in cryogenic technology applications with more than 40 years of laboratory and plant experience in cryogenic grinding. Through the interactive, technical webinar, the company will discuss the fundamentals of cryogenic grinding using liquid nitrogen, benefits and results of cryogenic grinding, safety considerations, and equipment requirements for cryogenics.
Participants will learn how cryogenic grinding using liquid nitrogen can be a cost-effective way to grind more effectively and efficiently. Exposing material to liquid nitrogen can help prevent melting or decomposition, or achieve embrittlement, resulting in a higher yield of particles in the desired target range, more uniform particle size distribution, higher production rates, improved product quality, and enhanced process safety due to nitrogen's inertness.
With trial facilities located in Allentown, Pa. (U.S.) and Shanghai, China, Air Products can test a customer's product on production-scale equipment to help determine the feasibility of using cryogenics in their process, as well as to help quantify the benefits versus cost.
