Ball mills and agitated media mills

Powders of extremely high fineness can be produced with ball mills and agitated media mills. When wet mills are used, fineness values in the submicron range (>1 µm) can be achieved.

These mills are equipped with grinding media (balls, grinding beads) for the grinding process. The bed of grinding media is set into motion by an agitator or by the rotation of the grinding chamber itself. As a result of this, relative movements take place between the grinding media and the feed material introduced into the mill is comminuted between the grinding media as the result of impact and shear forces.

Different mill designs make both dry or wet grinding possible. In the case of wet grinding, the powder is mixed beforehand in a liquid and then fed to the mill as a suspension or slurry.

The horizontal agitated media mills in the AHM product line permit the wet grinding of particles down to the submicron range. The AHM is suitable for a host of substances. The grinding process can be performed in batches, continuously or in circuit.  Details

The vertical agitated media mill ANR is employed for the energy-efficient ultrafine grinding of highly concentrated limestone slurries (GCC). The most typical application is the manufacture of GCC slurries used for the production of paper.  Details

The ATR product line is employed for the dry grinding of mineral powders to high fineness values of <10 µm down to 95% <2 µm. Typical applications are mineral fillers, glazing raw materials and non-mineral hard materials. In addition, the product can also be coated during the grinding process.  Details

The Super Orion ball mills are employed for the dry ultrafine grinding of mineral powders and ceramic raw materials. In combination with an air classifier, for example, ultrafine fillers at high outputs and simultaneously low specific energy inputs can be produced.  Details
