The vibratory head of the model LM2 is driven by a universal shaft powered by vee-belts from a standard, stationary (non-vibrating) 2.2kW electric motor. This drive arrangement delivers more power to the grinding bowl and optimises motor life (because it is not exposed to direct vibration as happens in traditional integral vibratory motor driven mills). The mill also differs from traditional integral vibratory motor driven mills). The mill also differs from traditional mills because of its ability to be fitted with a unique 800cc, 1000cc or 2000cc single puck type grinding bowl in addition to any standard size of ring and roller grinding bowl.
The LM2 mill is used for pulverising ores, minerals, metallurgical samples, ceramics, soils, aggregates, chemicals and similar particulate. Typically, samples can be ground to 95% minus 75 micron in approximately 3 minutes depending upon their mass and physical characteristics.
The model LM2 is well suited to high volume mineral laboratories regularly preparing large samples in the unique Essa single puck style of bowl or to any laboratory remote from the specialised repair services typically required for integral vibratory motor driven mills.
