Particle Size Reduction Equipment
Every day millions of people use products we’ve had a hand in producing without realizing it. MPE manufactures industrial size reduction equipment critical for the production of many food, chemical, and mineral (FCM) goods and products.
Our state-of-the-art Gran-U-Lizer™ and Crack-U-Lator® equipment produce the most accurate particle size distributions that improve product yields and reduce unwanted fines. From cereal and peanuts to quartz and zinc, our grinding equipment can grind anything for commercial and industrial settings.
- Gran-U-Lizers accurately cut and sheer product down to specific particle sizes—not crush
- Crack-U-Lators produce narrow particle distributions with a controlled cracking process between longitudinal and/or circumferential cuts on mating rolls
- Reduce size to anywhere between 4 to 325 mesh or 4,760 to 50 microns
- Less fines produced, meaning better yields and more profit
- Complete CIP designs available
- FDA food-grade and sanitary designs
