As for tubular ball mills, Barite vertical mill equipment benefits significantly from the employment of specific grinding additives, both in terms of production increase and barite quality improvement. The different grinding processes of barite vertical mill equipment compared to tubular ball mills, have led to the development of a new generation of barite grinding additives. These products have been specifically designed for the use in vertical mills, optimising both mill output and cement quality.
Besides high levels of energy efficiency, barite vertical mill equipment has the following advantages:
- Very compact and simple installation – one single machine for grinding, separating and drying;
- Improved versatility and optimisation in a multi-product situation, thanks to a lower MRT (material retention time);
- Less sensible for higher moisture-contents in raw materials, if sufficient drying energy is available;
- Thanks to the lower noise levels of vertical mills no additional measures are needed to reduce noise disturbances.
