The Alpine Sugarplex 315 SX is a pin mill that is based on the milling principle of the Alpine fine impact mill UPZ and has been specially tailored to the needs of the sugar industry. It is a compact system that does not need additional filters, fan, or air-cooling units that are usual with traditional system designs for sugar milling. That means that the plant operator gains through lower investment costs, reduced space requirement, and lower cleaning and maintenance costs. Sugar is fed via a rotary valve through the mill door directly into the milling mechanism. The milling mechanism, consisting of 2 pin discs, is completely integrated into the mill door. The Sugarplex achieves throughputs of 3 tn/hr at finenesses of 97% < 250 µm or 1.5 tn/hr at finenesses of 97% < 150 µm. A frequency inverter allows users to control the rotor speed to achieve the desired fineness.
