  • Patent number: 6193176
    Abstract: A method of grinding cement clinkers and a cement clinker grinding apparatus having a vertical roller mill are provided. In the method, feed material is ground by a table and rollers. Next, substantially all the resultant ground material is taken out from an underside of the table and then converted to a separator for classifying the ground material by a bucket elevator. The resultant coarse powder provided by the separator is returned to a center of the table. In grinding, an pressing force of each of the rollers onto the table is selected so that a roller pressure per full sectional area of the roller ranges from 10 to 15 kg/cm2. Further, a circulation quantity of the coarse powder to be returned to the vertical roller mill is selected from 100 to 300% of the feed material charged into the center of the table. And the liquid of 0.

  • Patent number: 6019299
    Abstract: The grinding efficiency can be improved by use of a vertical roller mill, while reducing the energy consumption and improving the product quality. The disclosed cement clinker grinding apparatus comprises a closed circuit for conveying the ground material from the vertical roller mill (21) to the external separator (28) by the bucket elevator (29), for classifying the conveyed material into coarse powder and fine powder, and further for returning the classified coarse powder into the vertical roller mill (21). That is, a part of the ground material conveyed by the bucket elevator (29) is divided by the distributing damper (32) and then directly returned to the vertical roller mill (21). Since the ground material are not conveyed by air flow conveyance (i.e., air sweep), it is possible to prevent an increase of power consumption of the suction fan (31).

  • Patent number: 5975309
    Abstract: A fluidized-bed classifier has a vessel defining a space divided into an upper fluidized-bed chamber and a lower gas chamber by a perforated dispersion plate having the shape of a funnel. Rising currents of a gas, such as air, are blown through the dispersion plate into the upper fluidized-bed chamber to produce a fluidized bed of a particulate material over the dispersion plate. The lower gas chamber is divided into a first gas chamber and a second gas chamber by a partition plate. The gas is supplied into the first air chamber so that rising gas currents of a velocity necessary for fluidizing coarse particles contained in the particulate material fed into the vessel are blown from the first air chamber through the dispersion plate into the fluidized-bed chamber.

  • Patent number: 5529248
    Abstract: A grinding apparatus includes a roller mill in which material particles are pre-ground, a tube mill connected to the roller mill through a fluidized-bed-type classifying device in which the material particles are classified by size and a circulation line is connected between the classifying device and the roller mill, wherein a fluidized portion of the pre-ground particles, which consists of a fine material component is fed into a tube mill, a remaining portion of the pre-ground particles, which consists of course material and some amount of fine material not fed into the tube mill is returned to the roller mill through the circulation line where the remaining portion of the pre-ground particles is again crushed together with newly fed material particles in the roller mill.

  • Patent number: 5221051
    Abstract: Materials such as cement clinker are crushed by utilizing a crushing apparatus including a vertical roller mill provided with a rotatable table and a plurality of rollers and a distributing device for distributing materials preliminarily crushed by the vertical roller mill. The materials to be crushed is fed into the vertical roller mill, the materials are crushed between the table and the rollers by a pressing force applied to the rollers and substantially the whole amount of the crushed materials is then taken out from the vertical roller mill and conveyed to the distributing device. The crushed materials once conveyed to the distributing device is returned partially as they are to the vertical roller mill and again crushed together with the materials newly fed into the vertical roller mill. The materials are returned to the vertical roller mill by about 20% or more in weight ratio with respect to the newly fed materials when cement clinker is utilized as the materials to be crushed.
