Sweco Vibro-Energy grinding mills are a versatile line of mills available for fast, low-cost particle size reduction to sub-micron range. Vibro-energy grinding action achieves higher output per input horsepower, as well as precise control of size and distribution. Product contamination from media and lining wear is virtually eliminated. Maintenance costs are low because of few moving parts and replaceable linings made of abrasion-resistant metal, ceramic, or elastomers. The mills’ vibratory motion, coupled with the use of cylindrical media, allows a dense packing of the media bed, assuring maximum media surface contact and minimum void area when operated under a low-energy condition. Feed materials as large as 300 microns can be reduced to sub-micron sizes. In the high-energy configuration, feed materials as large as 12-in. agglomerates have been successfully milled and solid particles of a half inch are being reduced to a d50 of less than 5 microns.
