Three tips: Specifying a pin mill for optimal performance and minimal downtime
As with any impact mill, the pin mill's components and surfaces are exposed to high wear and a challenging operating environment. The tips outlined here explain how you can specify a pin mill that will perform at peak levels with minimal downtime for parts replacement and repairs.
A pin mill is one of the most commonly used impact mills for grinding bulk solid materials to medium fineness. The mill can accept feed materials with a particle size from 20 microns to 0.5 inch and a Mohs hardness up to about 4, reducing them to particles as small as 10 microns, depending on the mill type and feed size. This versatile machine handles a wide range of materials; some typical examples are hydrated lime, sugar, wet corn slurry, food ingredients, and fertilizers.
