Feed Chute Ball Mill
- Type of Works: Machining
- Project Name: Feed Chute Ball Mill
This large and intricate feed chute ball mill was machined and fabricated from a number of individual pieces of equipment at our facility in August 2013. The equipment sketch (right) shows the scope of the project. Essentially a smaller chute within a larger chute that contains metal bearings used to crush mining slurry into finer material. The ground material passes through a grate that is too small for the bearings to enter. The heavy duty components were built piece by piece and rubber lined outside our facility before they were assembled in field. With the largest portion weighing roughly 25,000 lbs, this was certainly one of the largest non-pressure rated projects completed by EM.
