Impact pin mill

April 1, 2011




Munson Machinery’s 15hp, 18-in. (457 mm) diameter Model CIM-18-SS centrifugal impact mill provides coarse to fine (400 mesh) grinding of friable materials into controlled particle sizes, as well as de-agglomerating and conditioning of dry solids. A direct-drive system reduces the unit’s footprint to about half of that required by a belt-driven machine, allowing installations in restricted areas. High-speed rotation of the inner disc creates centrifugal force that accelerates bulk material entering the central inlet of the opposing stationary disc. The material travels through five intermeshing rows of rotating and stationary pins, with the desired tight particle size distribution obtained by controlling the rotor speed.
