Test Centre

During these challenging times, we at Hosokawa Micron keep committed to protect the health and safety of our employees, customers and partners. We are strictly following the guidelines from the responsible authorities and have adapted our usual operations to the current situation.

Hosokawa Micron's test and development centre in the Netherlands offers unique possibilities for testing your product to determine the most efficient process, system or plant prior to final design. We can provide laboratory as well as production-sized trials.

Whether you wish to test a single machine or a complete powder processing system, the same skilled and experienced staff are here to help ensure that your requirements are met, and that you are entirely satisfied with the results.

The test centre comprises more than 2,000 m² and is fitted with 30 machines, including test equipment at your disposal for:

  • Batch mixing from 1 up to 6000 litres
  • Continuous mixing from 100 up to 1500 kg/h
  • Batch vacuum drying from 5 up to 6000 litres
  • Batch freeze drying from 1.5 up to 800 litres
  • Continuous drying from 1 up to 250 kg/h (evaporation)
  • Continuous agglomeration from 100 up to 1500 kg/h

Is testing necessary?

If we could summarise the behaviour of powders in a set of rules and guidelines, in other words, if results could be predicted, then testing would be unnecessary. Of course the reality is somewhat different. Testing isn't only necessary; it is the foundation of any successful product or process. At Hosokawa Micron, we enjoy helping our customers test their latest ideas and requirements and with our modern testing facilities, we can help you put theory into practice.

Rental Equipment

Our testing centre is full-equipped with all of our latest equipment for operational trials but we also offer a range of rental equipment so that you can carry out operational trials at your own facilities too. This means that you can finetune process parameters and monitor production flows prior to finalizing equipment choices and process designs.
