Super Fine Powderization of Korean Ginseng Using Low Temperature Turbo Mill
It is investigated whether ginseng can be milled into super fine powder below 50μm, changing the circumferential velocity of impeller of a turbo mill(100, 110 and 120m/s). The mean particle size is 113.3μm in control but is decreased abruptly into 11.9μm at 120m/s. The largest particle diameter at 97% of volume distribution is reduced into below 32μm at 120m/s from below 725μm at control. The particle size distribution between d(0.1) and d(0.9) is 334μm at control, but is decreased into less than 26μm in all conditions after milling. It shows that ginseng can be milled into super fine powder by the turbo mill, which has the narrow particle size distribution.
