When grinding kaolin, choose a Raymond mill or a ball mill?

Kaolin can be used in ceramics, rubber, papermaking and daily chemical products because of its special fire resistance and plasticity.
With the increasing demand for kaolin, the demand for kaolin grinding equipment has also risen steadily.
Users who want to buy kaolin grinding equipment do not know how to choose.
Should we choose Raymond mill or ball mill?
The following CLIRIK will give you a brief analysis of the difference between Raymond mill and ball mill, hoping to help users when purchasing equipment.

kaolin grinding mill
Raymond mills and ball mills are relatively common milling equipment, but the two types of equipment have different focuses, such as different looks, different capabilities, and different application fields. Users should choose according to their own needs. And conditions, to choose the equipment that suits you.

Kaolin Ball Mill

The advantage of the ball mill lies in its large processing capacity. The equipment is relatively simple to maintain and has a high degree of automation. You don't need to worry about it when working, just wait for the material to be processed. But the disadvantage is that it covers a large area, consumes a lot of electricity, and the granularity of the finished product is between 180-200 mesh.

Kaolin Raymond Mill

Compared with ball mills, Raymond pulverizers with vertical structure have greater advantages in terms of floor space, and the mesh number can be adjusted according to user needs, which is more energy-saving and environmentally friendly. , But the output is not as high as the ball mill, and the price is much lower.

Working principle is different

The ball mill uses the repeated rolling of the steel ball to complete the grinding, while the Raymond mill uses the cooperation of the roller mill and the grinding ring to grind the material.

Environmental friendly

In terms of dust, Raymond mills are undoubtedly more environmentally friendly than ball mills.

Feeding method

In terms of feeding, the Raymond mill has a certain advantage, because the Raymond mill can continuously feed and process materials, while the ball mill can only process materials batch by batch.

According to the fineness of the discharge, how to choose a kaolin mill?

HGM kaolin grinding mill: 74-5 micron(200-2500 mesh); D97=5 micron
YGM Raymond mill for kaolin powder making: 613-33 micron(30-325 mesh); D90=30 micron
CLUM vertical roller mill for kaolin grinding: 20-5 micron(600-3000 mesh); D50=2 micron D97=4 micron
