Limestone is still relatively common in our lives, its application value is high, and it is a common raw material. So, what kind of equipment should be used to process limestone powder in general? How to choose?


As two common equipment in the milling industry, vertical mills and ball mills are both very popular. Ball mills are low in price and high in output, and have a wide range of applications in industrial production. Vertical mills rely on A series of features such as environmental protection and high efficiency are becoming more and more popular among users. So which one is better, a vertical mill or a ball mill in the milling equipment?

  1. Site requirements: The ball mill has higher requirements for infrastructure. The ball mill uses a horizontal installation, which will occupy a larger area; while the vertical mill uses a vertical installation, not only the area is small, but also the installation is simple. Good to save the cost of the venue.
  2. Crushing principle: The ball mill mainly uses the impact crushing principle, which will cause serious wear on the inner wall and affect its life; while the vertical mill equipment mainly uses grinding and crushing, the fineness of the powder can be adjusted, and the service life is also Will be longer.
  3. Process flow: Vertical mill equipment integrates crushing, drying, grinding, grading and conveying, with simple process and compact structure; while ball mill equipment can only crush, and other functions need to be purchased separately.

In summary, it is best to choose a vertical mill to grind limestone powder. The vertical mill is a new type of limestone grinding equipment that integrates crushing, drying, grinding, grading, and conveying. It has low operating costs, stable product quality, low investment costs, high drying efficiency, and simple operation and maintenance. Environmental protection and cleanliness. When we formulate its selection and configuration plan, we need to combine more milling information to develop a more reasonable configuration plan. Next, let’s take a look at the factors that affect the selection of vertical mills.

  • Understanding of limestone materials: When we select and formulate plans, we need to have a full understanding of the materials. Only by grasping its physical and chemical properties, application prospects and other information, can we make a scientific and reasonable selection and configuration. The main component of limestone is calcium carbonate, which is mainly used in the field of building materials. It is an important industrial raw material. When we choose a mill, we must consider limestone of different sizes, temperatures, and viscosities. The models of milling equipment are also different.
  • What is the required capacity: There are many types of mills, and different types and models of milling equipment have different capacities. Some mills have high production capacity, but high energy consumption, and some mills have low production capacity. But it is more energy-saving. For different customers, the requirements are also different. Only suitable is more important, so this is also very important for the selection of the mill.
  • What is the required fineness of the finished product: Anyone who knows the powder industry should know that different fields have different requirements for powder fineness. If the fineness requirements are not met, the output is useless no matter how large it is. Therefore, the user needs to provide the fineness requirements of the product when investing in the milling equipment, so that we can recommend the suitable milling equipment model for you according to your requirements. This requirement is very important for the selection of the milling machine.
