Advantages of ConCor Technology

The main advantages of ConCor technology over other techniques such as ball/bead milling and high pressure microfluidic devices are:

  1. Increased milling energy: the ConCor technology submits a particle / agglomerate to a level of energy at least one order of magnitude greater than any competitive technology currently on the market.
  2. Reduced capital expenditure costs: one ConCor mill can potentially replace several bead mills, or, at the very least, the need for different milling media charges. Also, many nanodispersion or emulsion processes require multiple stages using different equipment; in many cases ConCor could be used to replace several processing stages.
  3. Significant reductions in operating costs: whilst a single particle is subjected to a higher energy than competitive technologies, the overall energy consumption is less, as the energy is transmitted into the particle in a far more efficient manner.
  4. Lower product contaimination: as there are no milling media to degrade, there is no ‘pick up’ of contamination during processing. This is an important benefit in food and pharmaceutical markets.
  5. Less stress introduced to the product matrix: application work has shown that, when using ConCor, the nanomaterials lattice experiences less stress while being processed. This can result in increased quality of end product; for example lower levels of discolouration in films and coatings.
  6. Tight particle size distributions: the technique results in very tightly controlled product particle size distributions.  This results in products of high quality and cuts down significantly on excess and waste materials, some of which can cost £1000’s per gram.
