Arrangement 2 was similar to 1 except that the water level in the tank was lowered until it was below the drum. This was done in an effort to reduce the amount of dirty water carried over the concentrates. The separator failed to make a separation operated in this manner, due to the fact that the surface tension of the water on the drum caused this water to act as a blanket, which did not allow the non-magnetic material to fall out.
Raw material is firstly broken by jaw crusher into required particle size, which are carried by bucket elevator up to the storage hopper. The vibration feeder then conveys the crushed materials at a fixed rate into the grinding chamber of the main unit for pulverizing. The three rollers hung upon the spider-arm are running around the shaft. With the centrifugal force, the four rotational rollers will go around the ring tightly. The raw materials is put up between the rollers and rings by the blade to make the raw materials into powder. The grinded materials is blown up to the classifier, through which the powder is separated by the airflow. Coarse particles fall back down to the mill for regrinding. The needed particles will go into the collector where products will be removed through the discharge opening. The purified air flows to the air blower through the pipe above big cyclone collector. Air flue is circular type. Air stream in all pipelines is negative pressure except for that in the air blower and grinding chamber, which improved the working condition in the workshop. Wind volume in air flue increases as the moisture in material changes into vapour leaking in from the flange conjunctions and feed opening. Added air volume is transporting through the air blower and after-wind pipe, to simple collector. The end powder enters the collector with air stream and discharged from discharge valve.
Taconite Pellets: These taconite pellets consist of finely crushed taconite rock that has been processed to improve the iron content and mixed with a small amount of clay to improve pelletization. This is one of the standard ways of shipping iron ore from a mine to a steel mill. The round particles are about 1/2 inch in diameter (1 1/4 centimeter) and are very easy to handle during shipping and at the mill. Image by Harvey Henkelmann. GNU Free Documentation License.
The grinding disc is driven from below via a hollow shaft. The shaft for the conical deflector classifying wheel, which has its own frequency-controlled drive, runs through the hollow shaft. The feed material is charged pneumatically, for which a partial flow of the mill air has to be branched off. Comminuted material follows the flow of air around the guide cone to the classifying wheel. The high-speed classifying wheel allows only fines to pass through it; coarse material is rejected and returned to the grinding disc where it is reground. The cover for the machine can be hinged back so that internals are easily accessible for cleaning.
The richer the crude ore, the higher will be the grade of concentrates and the higher will be the iron content in the tailings. This is due to the fact that the rich ore carries a greater proportion of rich particles and a smaller proportion of rock. The grade of concentrates is raised, due to the smaller percentage of attached particles, while the percentage of iron in the tailings is greater, because of the smaller amount of clean rock present to balance the small quantity of magnetic material entering the tailings.

Certain product properties can lead to a mill being particularly suitable for a specific application or to it not being suitable at all. Table 7 gives an overview of the suitability of various machine types on the basis of different criteria.
Collector added before grinding gave higher pulp potential which improved chalcopyrite flotation.
Grinding is converting energy: When the grinding charge is forced to tumble the motor energy is converted into new particle surface and heat.
Want the best of both worlds? Some grain mills can switch between manual and electric modes. You can use the manual operation for small batches of flour or times when you don’t have power, and then you can switch to the electric motor attachment when you need to mill larger batches of grains.
