4 Differences between Vertical Sand Mill and Horizontal Sand Mill
The sand mill machine is currently the most widely adaptable, most advanced, and most efficient grinding equipment. The grinding cavity is the narrowest, the gap between the levers is the smallest, and the grinding energy is the most intensive. With the high-performance cooling system and automatic control system, it can achieve continuous material Continuous processing and discharge greatly improve production efficiency. Sand mills, also known as bead mills, are mainly used for wet grinding of chemical liquid products. According to the performance, the sand mill machine can be divided into horizontal sand mills, basket sand mills, and vertical sand mills. Among them, the most widely used are horizontal sand mills and vertical sand mills.
The sand mill machine mainly relies on the high-speed rotation between the grinding medium and the material to carry out the grinding work. Sand mill machines can be divided into vertical sand mills and horizontal sand mills according to their appearance. So are these two just the difference in external form? Let's take a look at the following, what is the difference between them in performance.
Different Processed Products
First, compare it from the difficulty of manufacturing. Since there is no sealing problem during the working process of the vertical sand mill, the manufacturing is easier and the cost is lower. Therefore, vertical sand mills are more suitable for manufacturing products with relatively low product requirements but high output requirements.
On the contrary, the manufacturing cost of the horizontal sand mill is relatively high, but it can ensure the tightness of the material, and the material will not be contaminated during the processing, so the purity of the product can be guaranteed. Horizontal sand mills are more suitable for grinding products that require high precision and fineness.
Different Grinding Fineness
From the point of view of the fineness of the grinding. After the grinding medium in the grinding cavity of the vertical sand mill is affected by gravity, the filling rate of the medium is low, and the distribution is uneven, which becomes the unsatisfactory grinding effect. The horizontal sand mill can well overcome the influence of gravity on the medium, so it has a better grinding effect and can meet the fineness requirements of the product.
Cost of Processing Materials
To compare the cost of using vertical sand mill machine and horizontal sand mill machine. When the vertical sand mill is stopped, the grinding medium is deposited on the bottom of the grinding cavity. If the machine is turned on, the blade and the beads will generate strong friction. And because the grinding beads are too concentrated, it is easy to cause broken beads (grinding media fragmentation).
On the contrary, the horizontal sand mill can greatly reduce the occurrence of such things. Because the contact surface between the grinding medium and the blade in the horizontal sand mill is larger, the grinding beads will not be too concentrated.
