UTICA, NY A new 24 inch (610 mm) sanitary stainless steel Centrifugal Impact Mill Model CIM-24-SS from Munson Machinery provides coarse to fine grinding (325 mesh) of friable materials into controlled particle sizes, as well as de-agglomerating and conditioning of fibrous materials.
High speed rotation of the inner disc creates centrifugal force that accelerates bulk material entering the central inlet of the opposing stationary disc. As material travels from the
center to the periphery of the discs at high speed, it passes through a "treacherous path" of five intermeshing rows of rotating and stationary pins, with the desired tight particle size distribution obtained by controlling the rotor speed.
Setting the infinitely variable rotor speed between several hundred RPM and 5400 RPM provides the flexibility to use the machine for coarse grinding and de-agglomerating as well as for fine grinding.
Also called a "Pin Mill," the unit handles wet or dry materials, produces tight particle size distribution at any given rotor speed setting, and sanitizes rapidly.
It also provides high throughput rates per horsepower relative to machines employing screens, hammers, knives or rolls, depending on application.
