Size Reduction Machine FAQs
As you look for particle size reduction equipment, if you have the answers to the following basic questions, a good, experienced supplier can help you maneuver through designing the best equipment for your application. Begin by answering these five questions:
- What raw material will be crushed?
- What's the raw material's moisture content range?
- What's the raw material's particle size range?
- What production rate should the size reduction equipment achieve (in pounds per hour, tons per hour, or kilograms per hour)?
- What particle size range must the final product have?
For processes that require frequent changeovers, particle size reduction machines with a wide range of process control and operating flexibility are the answer. Whether the materials are friable or not will affect the type of particle size reduction equipment that’s optimal. In addition to material type, the starting and final size of the milled material drives the mill selection process. Contact the experts at Stedman Machine Company to discuss which size reduction machine is best for your application.
