Cryogenic Grinding System

Cryogenic Grinding System

Cryogenic grinding of herbs and spices involves powdering these elements at sub-zero temperatures ranging from 0 to – 196°C. The elements are frozen with liquid nitrogen, as they are being ground. This process does not damage or alter the chemical composition of the main elements in any way. Standard grinding process which does not use a cooling system can reach up to +200°F. This high temperature can reduce volatile components and heat sensitive constituents in spices.

Superiority of Cryogenic over Standard Grinding Systems:

Traditional Grinding System

Cryogenic Grinding System

The heat is developed inside the Grinding Mill

Temperature below 0*c inside the grinding mill

The heat, which is developed during grinding, leads to evaporation of the essential oil and on the other hand, heat sensitive fats are melted

Negligible loss of volatile component

This leads to grinding elements becoming greasy and harms the machine by blocking it

This does not happen in Cryogenic process

High Energy Consumption

Low energy consumption

High Capacity Motors are required to grind the material

Low capacity motors are required to grind the material

Essential value of material is evaporated

No evaporation of essential value

No control on particle size

Particle size is under controlled

Salient Features:

  • Cryogrinding curbs usual loses of Spice Aromatic (Volatile oils) as well as moisture during the grinding process
  • Permits extremely fine grinding
  • Cuts down the oxidation of spice oils
  • Are considerably more stable than ambient ground products
