The following are the main features of the silo roll forming machine summarized from the practical application in cement industry:
(1) Boost the Output: The high voltage load produced by the silo roll forming machine installed in the grinding system is transmitted to the ground material layer through the double roller diameter, of which almost all the energy is used for the mutual extrusion of materials. The acoustic and thermal energy generated by the friction are converted into the deformation energy, which deforms, tears, and crushes the material so as to enable the potential capacity of the grinding equipment to be fully exerted. It increases output by 50-100% with total energy consumption reduced by 20-30%, thereby improving the production efficiency of the whole system.
(2) Reduce the Power Consumption: Not only the particle size of the rolled material is minimized, but also the Bond Work Index is greatly lowered by employing the roller forming machine into the grinding, which significantly facilitates the follow up grinder and reduces the unit power consumption of the whole grinding system. The total power consumption, compared with the traditional method, enormously falls off by 25-50%, which contributes to a considerable annual energy saving.
(3) Economize the Investment: A silo roll forming machine is simpler, smaller and lighter compared with a tube mill with the same output capacity. It asks for less occupation area sparing part of the construction investment. Besides, it is easy to reform the original grinding system with a simple operation and a handy maintenance.
(4) Improve the Working Environment: The material is crushed continuously and steadily in the cover of the extrusion roller, which gets the harmful dust grounded. In addition, nearly no impact appear when in operation, roll forming machine's noise is enormously less than that of a tube mill.
(5) Easily Realize the Scale-up: The traditional tube mill is dependent on the processing, the transportation, the heat treatment and other conditions, and therefore the large-scale tube mill is hard to achieve the scale-up. The grinding system with the silo roll forming machine is the way out, making the massive production a possible.
