The grinding mill is an important grinding equipment in mining machinery. It can process the crushed materials into powder with a fineness of 80-3000 mesh through grinding, impact, etc. It is widely used in metallurgy, building materials, chemical industry, mining, etc. field. As technology continues to develop and customer needs continue to change, there are more and more types of equipment. The two types that are more commonly used are vertical mills and Raymond mills. What are the differences between the two? The following is a detailed introduction for you.


What is the difference between vertical mill and Raymond mill?

Vertical mill and Raymond mill are two types of grinding equipment commonly used in the market. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Which one is better to use? In fact, it depends on which one can meet your needs. There are differences from appearance to internal structure design, as well as feed particle size, grinding fineness, output size, etc. The details are as follows.

Internal structure:

The spring plum blossom frame inside the Raymond mill is equipped with multiple evenly distributed grinding rollers. The grinding rollers make circular motion around the central axis. The grinding ring of the Raymond mill is its side wall and is fixed. It is lifted by the bottom blade. The lifted materials are sent between the grinding roller and the side wall grinding ring for grinding.

When the vertical mill is running, the position of the grinding roller is fixed after being adjusted. The grinding roller itself performs rotational motion, and the bottom grinding disc is also rotating. The two are not in direct contact, and the materials in the gap between the grinding roller and the grinding disc are moved. Carry out crushing and grinding.

 Scope of application:

Vertical mills are used for pulverizing non-metallic ores, pulverized coal processing and mineral powder processing, such as the grinding and processing of solid waste such as slag, water slag, steel slag, and furnace slag.


Raymond mill is mainly used for grinding limestone, calcite, barite, kaolin, bentonite, gypsum and other non-metallic minerals.

 Product performance:

The vertical mill is a new model that integrates grinding, grading, drying and conveying. The process is simple, the grinding efficiency is high, the energy consumption is low, and the layout is compact. It has a vertical structure, a small footprint, and can Open-air layout reduces construction costs; it adopts a dynamic environmentally friendly powder separator with concentrated particle size distribution, good particle shape, variable frequency speed regulation, and easy adjustment of product fineness.

The main transmission device of Raymond mill adopts sealed gear box and pulley, which ensures smooth transmission and reliable operation. It occupies a small area, intelligent operating system, and new pulse dust removal equipment to remove dust thoroughly, reduce pollution, and discharge materials evenly. High sorting accuracy and high quality of finished fine powder.
