Malvern, United Kingdom – The webinar is part of an ongoing collaboration between Malvern, whose particle sizing solutions are widely used in milling applications, and IIT, who design and manufacture compact, high output, energy efficient milling and classification equipment. To register interest for this event, which is free to attend, simply follow the link provided in our calendar entry here.

At its site in Gateshead, IIT have a full size demonstration plant, incorporating its classification equipment and a Malvern Insitec laser diffraction particle size analyser for real-time monitoring. The webinar will showcase the IIT facility and the presenters will discuss the usefulness of real-time particle size data in day-to-day operation. A key focus will be the role of real-time particle sizing in supporting the successful processing of new materials and in refining milling solutions towards ever higher energy efficiency with particular emphasis on the control and optimisation of milling within the minerals industry.

In-line Process Monitoring for Optimum Milling Performance

IIT manufacture a range of compact, high output, energy efficient vertical mills that are both cost-effective to install and easy to operate. Recent developments include a second generation of the highly successful “m-series”, designed specifically to address the needs of high yield applications and/or those involving hard and abrasive materials. The IIT demonstration plant allows the company to demonstrate to customers how its hardware, in combination with electronic control and in-line process monitoring, delivers exemplary milling performance for the widest range of materials and enables the efficient toll processing of customer samples as and when required.

The Insitec laser diffraction particle sizer is a process analyser designed specifically to meet the rigors of 24/7 operation in a manufacturing plant. Suitable for particles in the size range 0.1 to 2500 microns it can be used for both wet and dry milling, to measure in real-time. The resulting data support efficient commissioning, the optimisation of plant set-up and equipment design, and highly effective process control. Equally importantly they provide a basis for automated mill control and the many economic benefits it delivers: increased throughput, reduced waste and lower energy consumption.
