Rod mill MSTS 900x1800 (SM 6005A)
Rod mill MSTS 900x1800 (SM 6005A) with central discharge is designed for wet grinding of various ore and non-metallic minerals, as well as construction materials of medium hardness. The mill is used in ore, mining, chemical and many other industries. It works continuously in different mechanical schemes of an open or closed cycle. The mill produces homogeneous fine grinding product by means of 40 mm diameter and 1700 mm length rods. Mill capacity depends on grinding material physical and mechanical characteristics, grinding fineness, feeding uniformity, grinding bodies and material filling, proficiency of attending personnel.
Unlike the ball mills, rod mills support higher capacity. However, the grinded material is larger, comparing to the material grinded by a ball mill. Rod mill grinding can be the first stage of grinding before the secondary grinding- via ball mills. The mill consists of a mill drum, charging and discharging units, carrying rollers, drive and feeder. The drum is a steel hollow cylinder with metal lining plates preventing it from excessive ware. Charging and discharging units are protected with front liner plates. Carrying roller consists of a split-type body (in two planes) and two rollers fixed on spherical bearings. A mill drive consists of an electric motor, gear box, and a casing with pinion, fixed on the common frame. Such rod mill can be completed with a combination or drum feeder. The feeder and charging plug load material and water. Loaded material is crushed by grinding bodies and moves from charging to discharging ends under continuously incoming material pressure. The finished material goes through the discharge plug and a trommel and proceeds for its intended purpose.
