KEK Universal Mills benefit from varied and versatile system design capabilities, which can be customised to suit the demands of the individual applications.

The mill can be sited at elevated levels or at ground level and linked to the milled powder collection by either an integral hopper or by a remote filler – receiver (see below).

In addition, KEK Universal Mills benefit from customised process design options, typically including:

  • Temperature Controlled Grinding
  • Cryogenic Milling
  • Inert Milling
  • Explosion ProtectionExplosion relief through Bursting Panels
  • Explosion suppression with a Quench or Suppression System
  • Explosion containment with 10 bar PSR design
  • System inerting by replacing combustible gases and air with inert gas such as nitrogen.
  • Closed Loop Milling, fine grinding without the need for filtration.
  • Compact design
  • Minimal moisture uptake in milled powder
  • 10 bar PSR capable

Special Applications

Temperature Controlled Grinding

Temperature controlled milling involves the use of liquid nitrogen as a cooling agent which is applied to the mill and collection system. This system is often employed to either improve processing properties of heat sensitive materials or give a specified milled product output from the mill where it is essential to eliminate temperature pick up during normal milling i.e. control of mill temperature from ambient mill temperature to -5°C.

Cryogenic Grinding

Cryogenic grinding systems also involve the addition of nitrogen but the temperatures are much lower and cooling is applied to the mill system and the feed product. The object is to embrittle products that are impossible to impact mill at ambient temperatures. By cooling them to temperatures of -150° C, it is possible to grind problem materials finely.

Cool and Cryogenic grinding will also provide the added benefit of inert explosion protection.
