Using a fluidized-bed jet mill for more than size reduction  By Gregg Shemanski and Becky Shemanski, Custom Processing Services The fluidized-bed jet mill has long been known as an excellent machine for reducing a wide range of friable or crystalline materials down to micron-sized powders (called micronizing), grinding partly brittle but low-melt materials without damaging them, and grinding abrasive materials without the danger of cross-contamination from metal abraded from the mill’s housing. But the mill has more uses, as well. There are many jet mill types, and all of them operate […]

Ask an Expert – Preventing material build up during milling

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

Ask an Expert: Avoiding material build up and screen blinding during milling Q: The heat generated from our milling operations causes material to build up and harden on the mill parts and causes screen blinding. How can we prevent these problems? Gregory J. Shemanski, Custom Processing Services, says: There are several different cooling methods that can help you avoid material build up and screen blinding during milling operations. In an impact or mechanical grinding milling system, the traditional cooling method is achieved by cooling the airstream with liquid nitrogen. This method […]

Jeff Klinger discusses Multiple Grinding Techniques to Reduce Particle Size

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

Coarse grinding can be achieved in many different ways. Typically we start off with drastic size reduction by running the product through a series of jaw crushers and pass this material through our rotary kiln dryer if moisture reduction is required. The continuous process carries the product from the dryer to our impact crushers to further reduce the size. The material is then sized to customized “mesh” particle sizes by screening the material over a series of different screens to meet the customer’s specifications. Multiple Grinding Techniques to Reduce Particle Size: […]
