A horizontal rotary ball mill drum can be used for grinding of dry hard materials, such as hard minerals for the ceramic, glass or porcelain industry and processing of soft minerals with abrasive properties.
The Super Orion ball mills from Hosokawa Alpine are employed for the dry ultrafine grinding of mineral powders and ceramic raw materials. The ball mill is designed for the dry comminution of hard materials, especially for the ultrafine range < 10 µm in circuit with an ALPINE ultrafine classifier.
Ball mills are giant drums that are filled with between 30 and 40% of their volume with freely moving grinding media, in this case balls. The diameter of the balls is between one and several centimeters to suit the application – smaller balls for fine milling results and larger ones for coarser milling tasks.
Hosokawa Alpine (www.hosokawa-alpine.com) offers comminution technology for the production of powders, particles and bulk materials: from mills and classifiers to complete turnkey systems. For R&D and laboratory applications, as well as for industrial production. Tailor-made solutions for powder and particle processing in the chemicals industry, for paints and pigments, mineral raw materials and metals, pharmaceutics and cosmetics, foodstuffs and animal feed, and for industrial recycling.
