Dry grinding: Reducing costs and increasing product quality with an agitated media mill

Agitated media mills have long been used for wet grinding bulk materials to very fine sizes. Today, dry-grinding applications for agitated media mills are growing. After explaining how the mill operates, this article details the mill's dry-grinding applications, benefits, and limitations; typical process layouts; and tips for selecting equipment for your application.
