The new M350 milling system extends the company’s m-series of vertical roller mills and is a direct outcome of IIT’s involvement in the Project Chariot powder manufacturing programme.
The special three-year collaborative project, headed by Procter and Gamble’s Technical Centre as part of the UK government's Advanced Manufacturing Supply Chain Initiative, involved the development of new technologies for advanced powder handling and processing applications.
The M350 mill has an output capacity of up to 4.5t/h for single pass applications and 500Kg/h for finer products requiring classification. IIT said the mill provides a versatile and flexible solution for the effective size reduction needs for bulk materials up to 9.5 Mohs hardness.
The design of the ATEX-compliant mill is based on a patented centrifugal grinding mechanism, utilising a special pivoting roller assembly and a static grinding ring to provide a highly energy-efficient size reduction capability. The modular assembly of the M350 is also designed for efficient strip-down, cleaning and maintenance and includes a variety of construction material options to suit specific markets and applications.
