Diatomaceous earth superfine grinding machine

2017-04-24

Diatomaceous earth also known as D.E., diatomite, or kieselgur/kieselguhr, is a naturally occurring, soft, siliceous sedimentary rock that is easily crumbled into a fine white to off-white powder. It has a particle size ranging from less than 3 micrometres to more than 1 millimetre, but typically 10 to 200 micrometres. Depending on the granularity, this powder can have an abrasive feel, similar to pumice powder, and has a low density as a result of its high porosity. The typical chemical composition of oven-dried diatomaceous earth is 80 to 90% silica, with 2 to 4% alumina (attributed mostly to clay minerals) and 0.5 to 2% iron oxide.


Diatomaceous earth consists of fossilized remains of diatoms, a type of hard-shelled algae. It is used as a filtration aid, mild abrasive in products including metal polishes and toothpaste, mechanical insecticide, absorbent for liquids, matting agent for coatings, reinforcing filler in plastics and rubber, anti-block in plastic films, porous support for chemical catalysts, cat litter, activator in blood clotting studies, a stabilizing component of dynamite, and a thermal insulator.


Diatomaceous earth is available commercially in several formats:

1. granulated diatomaceous earth is a raw material simply crushed for convenient packaging

2. milled or micronized diatomaceous earth is especially fine (10 µm to 50 µm) and used for insecticides.

3. calcined diatomaceous earth is heat-treated and activated for filters.

The ACM/A series are highly efficient super-fine punch-action mechanical micro grinding machines of performing the complete process of material grinding, separation and making of the finished product within the same tightly integrated system.

1. Built-in separation mechanism-preventing over-grinding.

2. Able to produce uniform granules of required sizes by adjusting the speed of the stage-separation wheel(s) or by adjusting the strength of the blower(s).

3. Powerful blowing and strong self-cooling capability, suitable for grinding heat-sensitive materials.

4. Different grinding accessories/devices are used according to the hardness of the material being ground; different types of materials (alloyed carbon steel, stainless steel, ceramics etc) are available for the Machine's inner linings and product extracting system, meeting the needs of different industries.

5. Both manual and programmable auto-controlled machines available.

The machine is suitable for super-fine grinding of various types of brittle materials. Material hardness (Mohs scale)<4, moisture contents<10%, input size 5-200mm (as decided by the model of the machine and material hardness). The machine is widely used coating materials and other industries.
