Grinding and spray drying
We are a major supplier of complete plants for preparing spray-dried powder, from receipt of the rough raw materials right up to storage of the spray-dried product, for all types of products: tiles, tableware, sanitary ware, technical ceramics. Supplies can be integrated with technological development and ceramic body formulation
Continuous grinding ensures greater productivity, plant engineering solutions in small spaces, computerized control and management of production parameters. We are able to propose a broad range of continuous mills with capacities from 40,000 l up to 165,000 l.
Alsing mills are designed for wet grinding raw materials to prepare slips and glazes.
The body to be ground, mixed with water, is introduced into the mill and is ground by means of pebble collision. The grinding effect depends on the rotation speed of the mill and on the size of the grinding pebbles.
These mills are available in versions from 100 l up to 50,000 l and are ready for installation on bases made of concrete or steel profile sections.
By exploiting its experience with continuous mills, ICF & Welko has developed a line of continuous modular mills able to cater to a broad range of capacities and production types. Continuous modular mill technology permits optimizing plant performance in terms of quantity and quality and also achieving major benefits as regards energy consumption. The combination of modules permits covering a production range between 36 and 240 m3.
We design, build and install spray driers tailored to requirements. We examine the characteristics of the raw materials, additives and the viscosity and density of the slip in order to ensure production capacity, residual humidity and required granulometric distribution. Spray driers are available in versions from 0.5 l/h of evaporated water for lab use right up to 30,000 l/h for large productions.
Piston pumps are available in different versions according to flow rate, technical specifications and fittings. They are used to convey ceramic slips and dense and abrasive suspensions and are especially suitable for supplying spray driers and filter-presses.
