Stirred mills & Tower mills — simple, effective and cost efficient

As lower ore grades and complex mineralogy are driving demand for more efficient fine grinding, you can depend on FLSmidth for a full range of fine-grinding mills designed for easy shipment, simple erection and trouble-free maintenance. Most importantly, the mills are customisable to each unique mining application, optimizing the performance of the mill and recovering more ore for your business.

 

Our stirred mill and tower mill solutions offer a range of advantages, designed to optimise your milling while solving a number of issues traditionally related to industrial grinding:

 

  • Lower capital expenditures
  • Shorter lead time than competitors
  • Simple, containerised shipping
  • Factory tested, pre-assembled mill components for rapid site erection
  • Vertical orientation for smaller installation footprint than a comparable sized horizontal mill
  • Open atmosphere design to reduce problems with back pressure within the grinding zone
  • Above grinding chamber impeller bearing eliminates problems with bearing seal leakage
  • Reduced maintenance cost because there are no seals or filters within the mill chamber
  • No need for complex internal product separators because slurry discharge occurs by overflow through a polyurethane screen at atmospheric pressure
  • Vertical design eliminates cavitation in the grinding zone at high speeds
  • High-torque drive allows the use of grinding media with a wide range of intrinsic density
  • Variable speed drive allows the mill speed to vary with process conditions
  • Quick, simple, safe maintenance procedure
  • Worldwide support network
