Cone mills can be integrated with vacuum transfer for an automated milling process. Integrated milling methods, such as using vacuum transfer to pass product through a mill, is a well-proven method of rapid, dust-free processing.
Integrating the Hanningfield Conical Mill and Vacuum Transfer System
Hanningfield can offer a complete milling and vacuum system which ensures full compatibility and ‘matched performance’, offering a highly efficient processing method. This system optimises process time and minimises down-time. The combination of a Hanningfield Uni-Vac vacuum transfer system and Hanningfield Uni-Mill cone-mill offers the perfect integrated solution. The integrated system also offers the most space saving configuration for powder transfer during milling, making the optimum use of available production space.
Typical Application: Vacuum Transfer Through a Mill
A typical application for vacuum transfer through a mill is Fluid Bed Dryer unloading. The vacuum inlet is connected directly to the Fluid Bed Dryer and dried material is drawn directly into the mill by vacuum, size-reduced and vacuum conveyed to the next stage of the process. This well established and proven integrated process provides a very adaptable and operator friendly system.
Feeding and discharging from a cone mill using a vacuum is a particularly effective method for achieving dust-free milling. This process not only contains the dust, but also automates the process and minimises waste – helping customers make efficiency savings. Vacuum transfer through a mill also helps reduce operating temperature inside the milling chamber a further benefit to improved processing. This process ensures that from pick-up to discharge, the system is fully enclosed, preventing the escape of dust protecting both the operator and the environment.
