ANR Agitated Media Mill
The Alpine ANR Agitated Media Mill is designed for the cost-efficient ultrafine grinding of highly concentrated limestone slurries. The operating mode and the design permit the production of extremely high qualities with regard to fineness, degree of whiteness and abrasiveness.
The mill design ensures low maintenance, continuous system operation with no expensive downtime periods. The flow pattern through the vertically configured ANR is from bottom to top, whereby the feed material is ground to the required end fineness with the aid of ceramic grinding beads (zirconium silicate or zirconium oxide).
The agitator elements and the grinding chamber wall are made of wear-resistant hardened materials and efficient cooling of the mill stator removes the heat generated during grinding. Mill geometry permits trouble free scale-up to high production-scale capacities and the product line includes small pilot machines of 45 kW as well as production scale mills up to the MW range. The unit delivers low energy grinding at minimal wear rates with high mill service life.
Typical features of the ANR:
- Open-design vertical agitated media mill for single-pass mode
- Suitable for superfine calcium carbonate and other mineral powder slurries
- Suitable for continuous operation
- Low-maintenance machine
- Ceramic wear protection ensures high degree of whiteness
- Cost-effective due to low grinding energy requirement
