The Micronzier Jet Mill from Sturtevant boosts reactivity by grinding particulate materials to sub-micron sizes – without the heat buildup that  can harm sensitive products Many chemical compounds are highly susceptible to temperature-related degradation. The Sturtevant Micronizer brand jet mill reduces the particle size of pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, and other dry chemicals to 0.25 μm or larger with narrow size distributions and without heat buildup. The Micronizer employs high-pressure compressed air, steam or other gas to disperse and deagglomerate the
