Roller mills: Precisely reducing particle size with greater efficiency

This article introduces roller mills and explains how they efficiently grind friable materials to a uniform final particle size while using relatively little energy and minimizing waste.

Dry bulk solids processors are demanding more from their equipment today than ever before. Processors who use size reduction equipment have especially rigorous demands: improved product characteristics, higher process efficiencies, and lower energy usage. Roller mills can answer all of these demands for a wide range of chemical, pharmaceutical, food, mineral, and other products. The mill is suited to reducing friable or fragile and breakable materials -- that is, any material that breaks rather than flattens under pressure -- in applications that require a uniform particle size with minimal fines.
