The IKA Pilotina is a dry milling system in pilot plant scale, available in 3 different configurations:
IKA Pilotina MC – The cutting mill system
The dry mill IKA Pilotina MC is the ideal choice for disintegration of smooth, sticky, elastic or fibrous materials such as parts of plants, plastics, food pellets and many more.
The design guarantees an excellent milling quality, a precisely defined final fineness, as well as an easy and quick cleaning. The powerful 1.5 kW drive makes the Pilotina MC the ideal pilot plant machine. The counter bearing that is conically borne in the milling chamber door supports the rotor and thus enables a precise cutting quality, even under high load.
IKA Pilotina MI – The impact mill system
The dry mill IKA Pilotina MI is the ideal choice for disintegration of hard and brittle materials e.g. coal, glass, ore or seeds.
The product is disintegrated quickly due to the geometry of the milling space and the fast rotating impact rotor. The final fineness can be precisely adjusted via the sieve that is inserted in the milling chamber. High-quality surfaces make cleaning easier after milling.
IKA Pilotina MU – The universal mill
The IKA Pilotina MU is the ideal combination of MC and MI.
If you have a wide variety of milling tasks and therefore need cutting as well as an impact mill, the IKA Pilotina MU will be the best choice.
The modular design allows an easy modification from impact to cutting mill and vice versa within shortest time. Your advantage: one machine, two milling principles, all this without making any compromise regarding disintegration quality. Due to the powerful, frequency controlled 3 kW drive with digital indication the circumferential speed of the tool can be adjusted to the required milling process in an optimum way.
The IKA Pilotina, like all IKA products, was developed to accomodate the needs of our customers.
Regardless of cutting, impact, or universal system module, the
- Ease of operation
- Reproducible product quality
- Adaptation of the system to suit the customer application
are all factors that have been implemented in this dry grinding system.
The Pilotina MC cutting mill system and the Pilotina MI impact mill system are impressively easy to operate. After powering on the system by hitting the main switch, only two additional buttons are required for starting and stopping the system. In both milling systems, the particle size can be adjusted with the sieve. No tools are required; simply insert or replace them by hand. Through this simple action, the Pilotina ensures a high quality reproducible end product.
For applications requiring a wide spectrum of products, we recommend the Pilotina MU universal dry mill. This system can be used for both cutting and milling. The universal system also offers the option of adjusting the speed of the tool in order to optimally configure the machine to the material being processed.
Regardless of customer requirements for the machine, the safety of the user is always the top priority for IKA! This is why the Pilotina can only be started with the door closed and why the door on the machine cannot be opened as long as the tool is moving. The design of the inlet and discharge of the Pilotina ensures that the user cannot come into contact with the milling tool.
IKA also offers an extensive line of accessories for the system. Let us know what you need, and we can help you implement the process you want.
