Vertimill and Stirred media detritor - Automation ...

The attrition grinding action, vertical arrangement, and the finer media size distribution contribute to make stirred mills more energy efficient grinding machines. The Vertimill energy savings range from 30% to greater than 50% compared with traditional ball mills and the SMD energy savings are far greater than 50% of ball mill energy in fine ...


Stirred media mills in the mining industry: Material ...

Stirred media mills. Efficient grinding of fine and ultrafine particles requires small media to increase the surface area and the consequent collision frequency, but ball mills are fundamentally limited in the momentum that can be applied to such small beads by the force of gravity, which sets a practical lower limit in media size.


Agitated media mills – Making.com

Agitated media mills stir the grinding media to break down the target material into ultra-fine particles. The grinding media generally consists of spherical metallic or ceramic beads that are stirred into action by the agitator. Agitated media mills are …
