Pilot-scale & mid-size milling platform

with the SDx Series

Efficient powder milling with scalable results

The SDx Series - milling & screening platform for mid-sized capacities

Presenting the next phase of our cutting-edge product development in powder processing and size reduction.

The industry's most progressive mid-sized milling and screening platform offering two pilot-scale processing solutions on a single, common drive.

SDx™ Series Mid Sized

Flexible and easy to migrate from the lab, this model of the SDx™ Series provides the easiest path from research & development through to full production - sitting between the SLS - Scalable Lab System™ and the SDx™ Series production-scale powder milling & screening platforms.  This is also ideal for Customers who have smaller-scale production runs.

This complements the Fitzpatrick & Quadro range of exchangeable milling and screening platforms.

Easily navigate between the Quadro® Comil® and Quadro® FlexSift security screener as the SMARTdetect technology will recognize the head and automatically make RPM modifications, affording the ability to change heads in seconds.

Exceptional value for your investment - two individual functionalities on a single platform, providing the lowest long-standing cost when compared to the purchase of individual units.

U10x Comil®

Benefits of the U10x Comil:

Results obtained with the pilot-scale Classic U10 are duplicated and enhanced with the new and improved U10x.

The greaseless gearbox reduces the risk of contamination and lowers the operating temperature.

Achieve tighter particle size distributions (PSDs) with 20-40% more on-target.

New, high-efficiency screens offer up to 50% average capacity increase (patent-pending).

Compatible with Classic U10 screens & impellers - saving on tooling requirements.
