When it comes to particle size reduction, this sizing chart can help give you a better understanding of particle sizing in both US and metric units to give you a general idea of what some of our size reduction equipment can achieve.
More officially, the definition of particle size reduction is the micronization and milling process to generate a more consistent particle size distribution. Its an important step for engineering a myriad of materials, because its necessary to convert your large materials to smaller ones.
Crushing is generally considered to reduce particles, like large rocks and stones, to gravel-sized material. This translates to roughly 0 to 5 mesh. Williams Crushers has a variety of machines that can perform crushing size reduction like our Roll Crushers and Impact Crushers.
Grinding is generally considered reduction to table salt size, or about 5 to 25 mesh. Williams Impact Dryer Mills are capable of grinding wet, sticky materials like clay, limestone, gypsum, and other applications. The Impact Dryer Mills can also dry and classify at the same time for increased efficiency.
Pulverizing is generally considered to be reducing product to a fine powder. For instance, if you need coal, grain or other minerals to be in powder form, you would run them through a pulverizer or a roller mill. Pulverizing is typically defined as 25 mesh and beyond.
Our flagship mills are centrifugal ring-roll pulverizers equipped with two or threependulum roll assemblies suspended from a rotating carrier. As centrifugal force is created by the rotation of the carrier, the roll assemblies swing outward causing the roller at the bottom of the roll assembly to rotate against the inside of the stationary ring. Material is picked up by and directed between the roller and ring where it is ground using a combination of attrition and impact.
The fineness of the finished product discharging from the mill is determined by the size of the screen mesh fitted to the mill. The mill screen is designed to provide a large amount of area for easy passage of pulverized material from the mill. The screen itself can be changed easily and quickly to a screen of another mesh size so that various sized products can be produced efficiently in the same mill. Ground materials are then captured below the mill as final product or to be used for further processing. In addition, the mill is vented for dust-free operation.
For over 130 years, Bradley Pulverizer has produced reliable, heavy-duty roller mills that are built to last even in the most demanding environments. Bradley Mills are used to process a variety of materials with the most challenging specifications for particle size distribution and feature many functional benefits for our customers:
Mesh window screens are a summer necessity that is surprisingly fragile. Without them your choices are a house full of bugs, or sauna with no air movement. All it takes is one afternoon locked out of the house with a haphazard journey through an unlocked window and the screen is ruined. One poorly aimed soccer goal kick or football pass and your window screen is dented or broken in such a way that it needs to be fully replaced.
Measure your broken window, or bring it into one of our shops and we can fix the window by installing a new mesh screen. If the frame has also been damaged we can make a new screen that fits in the existing window. We can repair or make replacement mesh screens for all window and door sizes.
