Pin Mill Introduction

Pin mill uses a series of pin breakers attached to discs instead of hammers in the rotating grinding head to achieve a high energy impact between the mill and the particles.  It is traditionally employed to disintegrate starch-protein bonds that exist in the material and produce fine flour. Pin mill work by a similar principle as hammer mills (impacts and shearing) but with typically faster tip speed rotor-stator configuration of intermeshing pins which impact the particles as solids are directed through the intermesh pins. The mill product leaves by centrifugal forces to the periphery and is then collected or further processed.  This method of milling is most likely to produce materials in the micronized regime (as less than 100 mesh) and with uniform product size.

Ideal for pulverizing any materials (except highly oily or sticky ones). Due to the variety and interchangeability of internal components, this equipment has wide production adaptability, ranging from granular material to super-fine particles. The system is designed to prevent contamination of materials, increase efficiency, lower manpower requirements and maintain material quality.

The pin mill is also categorized as a disc mill, pin mill machine, Universal Pulverizer, pin grinding machine,pin crusher.

Our company's universal crusher includes two types of curshing equipment: one is the pin mill, and the other is the coarse crusher. The function of the coarse crusher is to crush materials larger than 5 mm to less than 5 mm, so that it can enter a pin mill or other types of crushers for further fine grinding.

In fact, the internal teeth of our grinder come in various types, including rod-shaped (commonly referred to as "pin type"), blade-type, and micro-hammer type. Depending on the specific material, we recommend different types. For materials that may contain some oil and are heat-sensitive, we typically suggest the blade type. For precise recommendations tailored to your material, please contact Haiwell Machinery Company, and we will provide you with the best choice based on your material.

Pin Mill Principles

This pin mill uses the relative motion between movable and fixed teeth discs, the raw materials to be crushed undertake comprehensive actions such as impacted by teeth, friction, impact between raw materials, and finally the raw materials are crushed and passed the sieve. Its features are simple and solid in structure, stable in operation, and high crushing efficiency. The crushed raw material can be discharged through the grinding chamber. Moreover, different sizes of raw material to be crushed can be got through a screen with different mesh. Moreover, the dust-collecting crusher set is made from stainless steel. It makes the products of medicines, foodstuffs, and chemicals, and so on in conformity with the requirements of the standard and meet the requirements of GMP.

1. By means of relative motion between movable and fixed fluted discs, the material is crushed by impact and friction of the teeth and impact among the materials. The crushed material enters the catcher automatically under the effect of rotating centrifugal force.

2. Crushed material by centrifugal force, automatically enter the trap bag, the dust is filtered and recovered by a dust collector through a cloth bag.

3. The pin crusher adopts high-quality AISI304 or AISI316L stainless steel, the production process has no dust and can improve the utilization of materials, and reduce business costs. Replacement of different particle sizes is determined by the number of screens.

4. Inside the enclosure (crushing groove) all alveolar by precision machining so as to achieve a smooth surface, easy to clean and change the ordinary mill rough wall, easy to accumulate dust.

5. The powder disc mill structure is simple, robust, and smooth operation, the crushed material is quick and evenly, with good results.

6. The pinmill just can crush the materials into 20-100mesh dry powder, if it wants to get more than 100mesh to 500mesh, please use our air classifier mill

Our grinder can be categorized into two types based on the presence of a dust removal system. The first type includes a dust removal system, which effectively eliminates the generation of dust during operation, thanks to its integrated fine powder dust removal system. The second type is a standalone unit that doesn't have a dust removal system. In this case, a long fabric bag is used to collect fine powder, and because fabric bags are employed, they serve the dual purpose of material collection and dust filtration.
