The new m-series powder milling machine from International Innovative Technology comprises a modular design capable of grinding soft‚ medium and hard materials passing 45 microns and below.
The Newcastle company says that the technology combines low energy consumption with a compact size to provide a highly efficient and versatile grinding system for a wide range of materials and industries.
Very low electrical energy input is required relative to particle size and volume of powder output‚ with specific energy consumption typically between 5kWh/T and 10kWh/T.
The m-series is suitable for the milling of a wide range of natural raw materials and other industrial products including metal oxides‚ bauxite‚ calcium carbonate and limestone products‚ silicon carbide‚ coal‚ fly ash‚ blast furnace slag‚ nickel slag‚ steel slag‚ glass waste and glass reinforced plastic‚
The self-contained grinding modules comprise very hard rollers linked to swinging arms and a centrifugal mechanism which develops very high grinding forces.
Multi-stage grinding processes can be developed through the incorporation of a number of grinding modules in series with milled powder size controlled by the number of modules‚ rotational speed and module barrel diameter.
Fully integrated electronic control and process monitoring systems for the new technology have been developed in collaboration with Siemens.
Typically‚ a standard 600mm barrel operating at 300 rpm produces a very fine powder output at up to 5 tonnes per hour and configurations are available to meet capacities of up to 50 tonnes per hour.
The vertical configuration and compact size gives the IIT m-series mills a small floorspace footprint for efficient installation in relatively confined spaces and simple integration into existing processes.
The new M-series is available as a stand-alone milling plant or can be supplied as part of a complete powder milling process solution with the IIT c-series Dynamic Classifier for fine particle sizing and the s-series of high efficiency cyclones . ATEX rated models of the grinding mill and ancillary plant are also available.
