A new food-grade attrition mill, Model SK-30-SS, produces particles within a relatively narrow size range of 10 to 100 mesh. The unit is particularly suited for the reduction of fibrous and friable materials, and cracking of corn and other grains.
The SK-30-SS mill is equipped with an outer stationary milling disc and an inner rotating milling disc that adjusts to vary the gap between the discs. Material enters the gap through the centre of the outer disc, and is ground between the discs as it travels radially by centrifugal force created by the rotating disc, with greater reductions achieved by reducing the gap.
Precise machining and alignment of the discs, together with constant spring pressure, maximise size uniformity of the reduced material.
Plate patterns are selected to optimise the reduction for specific types of materials.
Capacity is generally dependent on mesh size of the reduced material, with coarser products produced at higher rates.
Quick-release grinding disc separation allows for thorough wash down between batches. Single runner mills come equipped with access doors for clean out and maintenance accessibility.
The unit is available constructed of #304 or #316 stainless steel to sanitary standards, with a statically- and dynamically-balanced rotating runner head assembly.
Other size reduction equipment manufactured by the company includes Pin Mills, Rotary Lump Breakers, Screen Classifying Cutters, Rotary Knife Cutters, Hammer Mills and Shredders. Blending equipment for dry bulk materials includes Rotary Batch Mixers, Continuous Rotary Blenders, Vee-Cone Blenders, Ribbon/Paddle/Plow Blenders, Fluidised Bed Mixers and High Intensity Blenders.
