Continuous Ring Mill

Continuous Ring Mill

A special adaptation of the Ring Mill capable of processing larger batches of mineral sample on a continuous flow through basis.

The Essa continuous ring mill is selected for those applications where ring milling would be the preferred method of reducing a coarse sample to analytical fineness but the quantity to be milled is greater than the capacity of a standard ring mill. Ring milling is a preferred methodology for rapidly reducing coarse mineral, ore and similar particulate to the degree of fineness required for laboratory analytical procedures. The resulting sample is homogeneous and repeatability is excellent. Each batch is processed on a one-at-a time basis in a sealed bowl to minimise the possibility of contamination from the outside or the loss of sample as dust. The largest batch that can be prepared in a ring mill however is only approximately 5kg. When a need is seen to prepare larger samples, they can be processed in a standard ring mill in smaller batches on this one-at-a-time basis and then be recombined or the Labtech Essa Autobatch™ ring mill can be used to perform this same function on an automatic basis.
