"We’ve purchased the Air Jet Mill manufactured by Sturtevant. Model SDM2, a 2” R&D model with screw & vibro feeder. The performance of the jet mill is excellent. We can control the process parameters viz. grinding pressure, feed pressure & feed rate so preciously that we’ve achieved the PSD of X50 ~ 1.2-1.3 µm in a single pass.
