The grinding process is performed either in dry or wet conditions. The drum mill can be operated either as a Ball or as a Rod Mill by using the corresponding module. A sufficient number of balls or rods is required for an effective grinding process. Typically, a final fineness below 20 microns is obtained.
The drum mill consists of a gear motor mounted on a solid steel frame complete with outlet funnel and a set of separation screens plus sample collector. The Drum mill features a yoke and locking mechanism for easy access to the sample. The drum cover is easily removed for cleaning thanks to a quick release locking mechanism.
