Classifier Milling Systems host different types of particle size reduction equipment with each having capabilities and methodologies of particle reduction. In the past, there were hardly any equipment that could be used in breaking down large solid pieces into small ones. It required manual effort to achieve that; of course the entire process turned laborious and time consuming. In due time, innovation gave birth to equipment and machines that offered the capability of breaking down large pieces of materials to smaller ones. The machines are unique, each with a special functionality, with some, breaking down materials to very tiny particles in powder form. While others, only breaking down to solids to a certain recommended medium sized particles. The right particle size reduction equipment for the task is the one that can efficiently add energy for the application.
Your particle size requirement is a primary factor in selecting a size reduction machine for your process. Coarser specifications require less processing energy and less sophisticated equipment. Conversely, finer materials require more energy to produce, and usually high tech and complex equipment to deliver. Knowing what your particle size demands is the very first step towards determining and deciding which is the right size reduction equipment for your needs. For all materials, there are various grinding options to reduce particles, and there will always be the particle size reduction equipment suited for that specific activity. For instance, a stringy material can be tangled on the shaft and grinding surfaces of a machine designed to handle powders or slurries. Trial milling is carried out for the product to be handled in order to ensure efficiency in installation and performance.
In addition, the below criteria should be followed to ensure that the particle size reduction equipment performs at its optimum:
- Controlled temperature within the ground product
- Minimum maintenance requirement
- Economical capital loss
- Optimum productivity per kW
