IsaMill gives you better energy draw and product size.jpg

IsaMillTM uses horizontal milling to secure better efficiency, product size and availability – but which one do you need?

IsaMillTM have a series of steps to make sure you know exactly which mill will deliver the best fine grinding, and a new online calculator is the first step.

1. How it works

The IsaMillᵀᴹ is horizontal so its product discharge is not fighting gravity like a vertical mill can. This means it avoids short circuits and maximises availability. IsaMillTM is the only horizontal fine grinding mill in the world.

It’s safe and easy to maintain. It’s not suspended vertically. You just slide it open.

The IsaMillᵀᴹ is also light. A low volume of concrete and structural steel are used, and the entire unit sits on a one-storey platform. This means it’s about a third the height and weight of some other grinding mills.

2. More Power than Other Mills

The IsaMillᵀᴹ is incredibly efficient and intense. With 8 grinding discs, evenly distributed energy, superior grinding media and a centrifugal grinding flow, it can have much more power than equivalent ball or tower mills.  What’s more, less residence time is required, so there’s less wasteful regrinding and the IsaMillTM is far more energy efficient and cost-effective.

3. Same Size as a HIG

A IsaMillᵀᴹ footprint is the same as a HIG mill, since both require access areas. However the IsaMillᵀᴹ requires less in civil works and does not require working under suspended loads.

4. More Consistent Product Size

IsaMillᵀᴹ creates a more consistent product size because of the staged grinding process and horizontal layout. This means the product is more consistent and doesn’t need re-processing.

5. Accurate Estimates and Reliable Scale-up

When we model and scale up your IsaMillᵀᴹ from sample tests, we’ll be able to assure you of product size or energy efficiency written into a performance guarantee. It means you avoid flowsheet disappointments.

6. Now in 7500 kW

IsaMillᵀᴹ comes in the M7500 size, comfortably addressing the 1600-2300 kW range of power draw.

7. 130 IsaMills

There are already 130 IsaMillᵀᴹ installations around the world! …Like Heron Resources in Australia, JSCAK Altymalmas in Kazakhstan, Sumitomo in the United States, Goldcorp in Canada, Hudbay in Peru, GPM in Armenia, Anglo Platinum in South Africa, Somincor in Portugal, Minera Penasquito in Mexico and lots more, in 21 countries…
