Hosokawa Micron announces new toll processing suite

01 April 2011

Hosokawa Micron has announced the opening of a dedicated toll processing suite at its Runcorn headquarters. The investment in the facility delivers a complete suite of three separate toll processing rooms allocated to chemical and food applications.

''We have responded to the increased demand in the market for flexible and efficient toll processing by designing a series of processing rooms capable of single or multi-stage processing, variable process stage configurations and fast turnaround. The toll processing suite design allows for process isolation, full product containment, batch validation and tracking as well as in house product analysis, testing and process evaluation,'' explains Kathryn Hipkins, technical centre manager, Hosokawa Micron.

The new facility is geared for increased demand for milling of chemicals with the larger capacity and throughput capability offering customers a commercially viable toll processing service.

Dedicated food processing rooms are BRC Global Standard-Food 2005 registered for the receipt, milling/size reduction and packing of dry powders for the food industry and is capable of powder and particle processing of lots from a few kilos to several tonnes.

''The modular design of the processing rooms and availability of interchangeability of a wide range of different pieces of equipment means we are able to offer contract processing services from single process requirements to complete process line services. We offer a round the clock service to ensure our customers have a fast turn around and reliable service to meet their short or long term processing needs.''

Hosokawa Micron’s toll processing service is supported by an in-house test centre and accredited to ISO9001.
