Further reasons concern the way the machines are designed to match the characteristics of the grinding and spray drying processes. In the case of the MMC240s, these are the first solutions on the market SACMI has configured, as per the customer's request, with 4 modules. Further solutions with up to 5 modules are being supplied in other parts of the world.
Originally developed by SACMI in 2005, the modular mill is still the most flexible, most efficient way of controlling the various stages of grinding, from crushing to refinement. A fourth - or even a fifth - module introduces an additional control parameter, further optimizing the process in line with the characteristics of the product, thus saving energy.
Spray dryers are a different matter. On the SACMI ATE range, cost-effective design, operation and maintenance are, on higher-volume models, combined with a more than proportional increase in efficiency. With the ATE350, that increase can (compared to the installation of two ATE180s offering the same output) be as high as 1.5%. This reduces annual gas consumption by 250,000 standard cubic meters, which means a faster return on investment. Further advantages include a smaller footprint; output remaining equal, doubling the size can shrink the footprint by up to 20% and result in simplified plant engineering (fewer batching stations, conveyor belts, etc.). These machines are designed and sized to work 24/7 and provide all the quality, control and reliability one expects from SACMI.
And for Hayal, investment in SACMI technology doesn’t end here.
In addition to the 2023 projects for the Group’s other production facilities, again with machines of greater size and power, the Söke plant will soon be supplied with ten new PH 5200 presses, the market benchmark for medium-large items such as 600x600 and 600x1200 mm.
