International Process Plants announces a toner manufacturing plant available for immediate sale. The facility has a capacity of 1,200 metric tons per year of toner, for use in photocopiers.
The plant was used by its previous owner to produce a black digital toner with particle size of 4 to 8 microns. The plant operated using a four-stage process of blending, fusing, milling and classification with raw materials including polystyrene, carbon black and other additives. Although the plant was used to produce a black toner product, it could produce three different toner colors, one on each of its three Hosokawa Alpine fluidized bed opposed jet mill lines. The plant is capable of the contamination-free, ultra-fine milling required to make other products, such as colorants, ceramic pigments and powder coatings.
The toner plant, which started operations in 1995, has been well maintained and is in excellent condition. Highly automated with an Allen-Bradley PLC system, the plant operated three shifts a day with seven staff per shift. There are no environmental or hazmat issues with the secure 31-acre site. The plant’s design includes in-process reclamation and recycling of out-of-size material, dust emissions control through multi-stage filtration with airborne particulate monitoring, and explosion containment in all milling and classification equipment.
This facility may be operated in place or relocated. There is also a possibility for the purchaser to contract manufacture some toner product for the previous owner. For interested parties, both purchase and rental options are available.
