Compact and powerful‚ the centrifugal grinding mechanism of the m-series is extremely efficient with the vertical material flow path and special roller assembly ensuring that the force produced is translated into maximum particle grinding power.

UK company IIT has developed new technology for the fine grinding of composites such as glass reinforced plastics (GRP), raw materials and minerals into fine powders. 

According to IIT, the low energy performance of the new mill has the potential to convert what may currently be regarded as waste material into commercial products for recycling and re-use.

IIT has successfully installed a milling plant in an established GRP production facility. GRP waste is first converted into flakes using shredding equipment before secondary reduction is carried out in an IIT m-series mill, which converts the flakes into a fine powder of generally less than 100 microns for re-use in the primary batch for the manufacture of new GRP products.

The IIT grinding mill and ancillary particle sizing plant are ATEX compliant.
