Vertical planetary ball mill is a necessary device of high-tech materials mixing, fine grinding, sample making, new product development and small batch production. Tencan planetary ball mill owns small volume, high efficiency, low noise and functional features which is a ideal equipment for R&D institution, university, enterprises laboratory to get samples (each experiment can get
Four samples at the same time). this kind of ball mill can be used for grinding special materials under the vacuum condition if it is loaded with vacuum mill jars.
Vertical planetary ball mill production model is a large-sized planetary ball mill which is designed, developed, and manufactured on the basis of working principle of small planetary ball mill. The
production planetary ball mill is mainly suitable for mass grinding production.


 Planetary Ball Mill has four ball grinding tanks installed on one turntable. When the turntable rotates, the tank axis makes planetary movements, the balls and samples inside the tanks are impacted strongly in high speed movement, and samples are eventually ground into powder. Various kinds of different materials can be ground by the mill with dry or wet method. Minimum granularity of ground powder can be as small as 0.1μm.


The ball mill shell is welded with thick steel plate, which has high strength, impact resistance, deformation resistance, fine workmanship, strong and beautiful appearance. The material of mechanic parts is strictly processed by heat treatment process and numerical control processing technology. The gear box is adopted with quasi-sealed groove embedded structure, and the drive gear is made of wear-resistant precision gear. The machine frame and structure are fully considered in design to ensure the stable, safe and reliable operation of the ball mill under long-term and high load conditions, and to effectively achieve the effect of noise reduction in the operation of the machine. The liquid oil self-lubricating device is designed with low noise and high intensity, and it is equipped with a liquid oil level meter for easy replacement. The supporting lifting and feeding devices are adopted with integrated design. The feeding device incorporates the technology of vibrating screening and discharging for simple and convenient operation. It realizes easy and fast picking up, discharging and loading of mill jars, reduces labor intensity and improves production efficiency. With the touch screen of micro-computer, machine operation is becoming convenient, the interface is more simple and intuitive,forward and reversal alternating control can be achieved easily. It owns functions of timing and power-off memory.

Advantages of Tencan Vertical Planetary Ball Mill Production Model

1.Stable revolving speed of the drive gear ensures consistency and repeatability of experiment.

2. Planetary movement principle is adopted in the machine with advantages of high speed, large energy, high efficiency, fine granularity.

3. Four powder samples from different sizes and different materials can be obtained for each batch.

4. Ball mill is controlled by frequency converter, you may choose ideal rotating speed according to expected experimental result. The frequency converter is

equipped with device of under voltage and over-current to protect the motor.

5. Planetary ball mill has functions of timing power off, self-timing forward and reversal rotation. You may choose freely any operation mode of one-way direction,

alternation, succession, time setting according to experimental needs, so as to improve grinding efficiency.

6. Technical features of Tencan planetary ball mill: low center of gravity, stable performance, compact structure, easy operation, reliable safety, lower noise, small loss.

7. Safety switch is installed on the machine for stopping to prevent safety accident if the safety cover is opened while machine is running.
