5 Hicom Mill (MD Research)

6 Possible Types of Mills for Fine to Very Fine Grinding High speed mechanical impact Use of fluid energy Use of grinding media

7 Mills using Grinding Media Tumbling mill Vibration mill Planetary mill Fluid energy (agitation) mill Centrifugal mill

8 Centrifugal Mill Scope of Investigation Machine design - Transfer from DEM simulation model to prototype machine Extensive simulation analysis Theoretical vs. simulation model analyses Verification by prototype X-Mill

9 Prototype design of the X-Mill

10 Specification of the Prototype X-Mill TypeBalanced twin cylindrical mill bodies OperationBatch or continuous Cylinder dia.150 mm Cylinder length300 mm Grinding mediaca. 17 kg * 2 (steel balls) Dimensional size762(W) * 935(H) * 1190(L) mm Motor7.5 kW 6 Poles

20 Simulation Model Analysis Versatile Simulator ‘Mill Solver’ 2-D model For tumbling mill, centrifugal mill, vibration mill and planetary mill Visualize motion of balls and the center of gravity of ball charge Visualize energy dissipation maps in 2 camera angles Track mechanical effects and energy dissipation of individual collision events

21 Simulation Model Analysis Track energy dissipation on individual collision events by 6 components: - ball to ball radial component (bbr) - ball to ball tangential component (bbt) - ball to wall radial component (bwr) - ball to wall tangential component (bwt) - ball to liner bar radial component (blr) - ball to liner bar tangential component (blt) Record data for later (e.g. statistic) analysis

46 Autogenous Comminution of Limestone

47 Potentiality of the X-Mill High stress intensity Simple machine structure Compact size and low installation cost Little vibration and easy installation Competitive enough grinding efficiency

48 Applicable to both dry and wet grinding operations Suitable for fine to very fine grinding Easy maintenance Reasonable consumption of liner and grinding media Reasonable noise level Frequent but easy maintenance of liner bars/plates Heat dispersion - water jacket?
