TORUSMILL® SK

Basket mill for any container.
Option: Vacuum, scraper system, explosion proof according to ATEX, PLC Control, Ceramic Version

The basket mill TORUSMILL® SK is a milling system for fine grinding of 35 up to 1600 litres. The technology of the basket mill conforms as far as possible to the TORUSMILL® TM-CC. Whereas with the basket mill TORUSMILL® TM-CC the pre-dispersion is made by a dissolver disc and the fine grinding is made with the basket milling system, the TORUSMILL® SK has been modified on order to grind exclusively as a milling system. A pre dispersion with a dissolver disc is not possible therefore a production dissolver like DISPERMAT SC is essential for mixing and pre-dispersion.

Basket mill with integrated pumping wheel for excellent milling results

The TORUSMILL® SK are high-efficient basket mills with which excellent grinding results can be achieved in very short time. The TORUSMILL® SK is available in versions from 15 kW upto 55 kW drive power for processing low and medium viscous products. The TORUSMILL® clamping device is suitable for container volumes upto 2000 l. The rapid circulation of the mill base through the grinding basket is achieved through an integrated, patented pump wheel. This provides a high number of passes, and a narrow particle size. The dissolver disc mounted below the milling basket ensures a milling of the millbase within the milling container with minimal dead volumes.

  • Double walled milling basket, suitable for cooling and heating systems. The heat generated during the milling process is dissipated effectively by the spirally guided cooling liquid
  • Excellent circulation of the mill base by the patented pump wheel and dissolver disc
  • Easy scale-up from the laboratory instrument TML to the production machine TORUSMILL® SK
  • Standard usage of customers existing vessels, also with different volumes
  • Variable speed adjustment by modern frequency converters
  • Options: ATEX zone 0/1/2, Vacuum, PLC?control, Ceramic version
The process control of the basket mill TORUSMILL® SK
  • Digital indication of speed, ampere and product temperature
  • Variable speed adjustment
  • Pushbuttons and contactors for Power, Start, Stop, separate height adjustment of the stand and basket, drain off milling basket and Emergency Stop

The TORUSMILL® SK can also be fitted with the PLC-control. The graphic display allows for an indication of the operational parameters such as speed, power output, peripheral speed of the milling tool, torque and product temperature. The combination of a graphic display and the standardized PLC-control allows for an extension as well as for an adaptation of the control system to further process control applications at any time.

TORUSMILL® SK includes all necessary safety devices according to CE standards and local work safety legislations.

The fine grinding process with the basket mill TORUSMILL® SK

The container with the liquid component is moved into position under the TORUSMILL® SK and fixed. The milling basket is immersed into the liquid.
The TORUSMILL® SK now starts the actual dispersion process for extremely fine grinding. After the intended fineness is achieved, the dissolver disc and the milling system are raised above the product surface, product residue in the grinding basket is centrifuged out by briefly running the milling and dissolver discs.
The milling system is now completely raised and the container with the ground finished product is removed. Cleaning the milling system is carried out in a separate conical container in order to minimise the required amount of cleaning fluid.
Cover Options for TORUSMILL® SK

TORUSMILL® SK can be equipped with different variants of covers due to different process requirements.

  • Light Weight Safety Cover suitable for different size containers:
    TORUSMILL® SK is equiped with a simple cover due to safety reasons. During the milling process the cover lies tight on the container due to an intelligent feature; when raising the basket over a certain point the cover is dragged with it. Pneumatic lifting & lowering system can also be applied to this cover in order to increase the working distance in different size containers. The diameter of the cover is selected in such a way that containers with different diameters can be covered safely. The cover can be fitted with container illumination, a locking opening for adding the product respectively for sucking off dust and fume.
  • Special Cover with skirt for Scraper System:
    TORUSMILL® SK is equipped with this 2 piece security cover together with the optional scraper system. During the milling process the cover completely blocks access inside the container when raising the basket over a certain point the cover is dragged with. In order to take out the container, the cover can be split off. The diameter of the cover is selected in such a way that containers with different diameters can be covered safely. The cover can be fitted with container illumination, a locking opening for adding the product respectively for sucking off dust and fume. When the small cover of the feeding inlet open, scraper arm stops for safety.
  • Leakproof cover:
    For vacuum operation or for solvent based products using of a completely closed cover is essential.
