Frewitt Milling Systems for Food Processing Powders

milling systemsFrewitt is a manufacturer of milling systems used in the milling, crushing and sieving of powders and bulk solids across a wide range of sectors, including food processing.

We also offer expertise in powder transfer, de-agglomeration, and dosing and filling solutions, as well as high-tech particle classification and homogenisation.

Milling solutions for R&D and analytical laboratories

Frewitt has developed a wide range of lab mills for research and development (R&D) and analytical laboratories across the food processing, pharmaceutical, fine chemical and defence industries, among others.

Our FlexMill-Lab enables six diverse milling processes in a single system, enabling users to produce a range of particle sizes, including a lower particle size distribution spectrum of D90 < 10μm.

Flex-Mill Lab offers unequalled process scale-up enhancement, allowing for batches of 50g to 1kg for small-scale laboratory applications while also ensuring the flexibility of a 30kg/hr-50kg/hr light production rate for pilot-scale quantities. From these lab-size and pilot-scale batches, FlexMill-Lab can also ensure true scale-up to high-volume industrial production levels.

The sixth and most recent milling process, the FlexMill-NW, is a high-performance bead mill on our FlexMill-Lab platform, which enables wet nano-milling down to 50nm, offering customers an additional dimension to particle size reduction.

The system allows operators to quickly and efficiently alternate between different milling processes. Detachable heads can be removed and other heads fitted and sealed for cleaning within seconds.

Powder size reduction technologies

Frewitt also offers a production-scale line of machinery, which provides ideal scalability with our lab machines. Designed and scaled for industrial production levels, FlexMill-Prod is a technology that unites multiple milling processes in one system.

FlexMill-Prod delivers a consistently high degree of flexibility across a complete range of processing needs, from small batches to large-scale production. It also facilitates the implementation of milling platforms to suit current and future production requirements.

Turnkey milling equipment

Frewitt also recognises a growing requirement for turnkey solutions, and has accordingly developed several modules adapted to our machines.

The modules permit the end-user to improve the usage of the machines in terms of dosing, cleaning, conditioning, gas management, N₂, O₂ monitoring and more.

Efficient customer service from a trusted milling systems manufacturer

In addition to being a renowned machine manufacturer, we offer a wide range of services to our customers, including after-sales service, engineering, laboratory tests and analysis, on-site process audits, process development, machine upgrades, logistical support, and leasing.

About Frewitt

In 1946, Frewitt was founded by a Swiss entrepreneur named Frédéric Wittwer who developed machines for crushing and grinding raw materials in pharmaceutical applications. Since then, the company has engineered a wide range of machinery and systems for multiple sectors, becoming a global market leader in its field.
