Paul O. Abbe: Steel Ball Mill

May 4, 2000
This company’s new steel ball mill is designed for grinding dry, abrasive powders. It includes an innovative discharge housing and pullout drawer that simplifies and speeds the product-collection process. Additionally, an electrical control package completely automates the milling process. The mill’s steel cylinder is available with various types of linings, including alumina, rubber and urethane. Following milling, the top access door is opened and the grinding cover is replaced with a discharge grate. The grate retains the grinding media and allows the powder to flow into the housing when the machine is restarted.
