Rod Mills

In most cases, to obtain a product size below 2mm ; rod mills are used. In the rod mill the collision and attrition forces occurs. The grinding media as rods will create linear contacts to each other and the material between the grinding media during the rotation process is either crushed or ground. The crushing force in rod mills as always bigger than grinding force, the rod mills pretend as an advanced crusher so finer particul sizes can be attainable than the crushers. With general approach rod mills can be preferred down to 200 microns product size. 

Key figures to determine the mill sizing are the ore charactheristics, the feed size , desired product size, the capacity , grinding circuit type. We are glad to work together with our clients for the optimised dimensioning of the requested ball mill.

In most wet process rod mills, the mill is lined with steel lining. Rubber lining is not preferred much in rod mill applications because of the rods can stick in the rubber lining. However in some cases, there is also some applications by using steel lining in the heads of  the mill while rubber lining in the body of the mill.

In dry grinding processes, the mill is completely lined with special steel liners. The amount of manganese in the lining alloy is important for impact resistance, also the chromium amount provides abrasion resistance to the lining.

The decision of the lining type to be used is mostly a choice of the client. Also client has always has the right to have his own lining and we are ready to supply the mill without the lining. The lining operation can be done on site.
