MAXIMIZE MATERIAL RECOVERY WITH GK’S VIBRA-DRUM® TECHNOLOGY FOR GRINDING, CRUSHING AND LEACHING!
General Kinematics VIBRA-DRUM® Grinding Mills are proven in dozens of milling applications in the mining and mineral industries.
Each grinding mill is achieving impressive energy savings (35-50%), thanks to a unique rotational material motion that is more efficient than conventional ball or rotary grinding mills. New processes such as micron grinding and mechanochemical grinding give our customers a unique and effective competitive advantage.
VIBRA-DRUM® Grinding Mill units are also ideal for continuous processing of “difficult-to-fluidize” products such as large flake and stringy or tacky materials. Typical VIBRA-DRUM® Grinding Mill applications include direct gas contact heating, drying, cooling, and coating. Need more information about the General Kinematics VIBRA-DRUM® Grinding Mills?

HOW IT WORKS:
Exceptional grinding performance and energy savings are the result of the VIBRA-DRUM® natural frequency design. A sub-resonant, two mass drive and spring system alternately stores and releases grinding power. Once in motion, energy is only needed to move the grinding media as a fluid mass, and to overcome frictional losses.
The increased number of impacts in the VIBRA-DRUM® Grinding Mill results in a faster, more efficient grinding action. As the grinding mill vibrates, media particle migration is experienced in both axial and transverse directions. In fact, the media migrates through the VIBRA-DRUM® Grinding Mill in a path similar to that of a rotary grinding mill without lifters, but each media particle imparts positive impact energy at each vibration.
