Cryogenic Grinding

Cryogenic grinding is used to create very fine finished product or where heat generation could cause chemical or physical changes to the raw material.

ACE utilizes liquid nitrogen to embrittle the rawmaterial which is then pulverized into the desired mesh size. Some benefits of cryogenic grinding is that it is extremely dry, imparts no impurities on materials and eliminates any possibility of surface oxidation.

Ground material can reduce compound costs, reduce blistering, and reduce mixing time, increase extrusion rates, and provide "value" from recovering companies own scrap instead of incurring landfill costs. Leads towards 100% material usage and "green compliant".

  • No heat generation
  • No chemical changes
  • No impurities or surface oxidation

  • Can reduce compounding costs,
           blistering and mixing time
  • Increases extrusion rates
  • Provides value from scrap
  • Decreases landfill costs
