The Bico Pulverizer features efficient operation with minimum power consumption and long service life. Time proven design is compact and effective for processing hard rock, ores, and minerals. The grinding chamber is easily accessible for cleaning, maintenance and complete sample recovery.
The LC-53 Pulverizer grinds 1/4in (6.4mm) feed material to approximately 75µm (No.200 sieve size) in a single pass, depending on material. Throughput is about 60lb (27kg) per hour. A threaded knob with locking lever adjusts the gap between the 8in (203mm) diameter grinding plates to control particle size output. Stationary and revolving grinding plates are easily replaced.
Power from the 2hp motor rotates the shaft at 900—1,000rpm through a double V-belt drive. Three phase 50 or 60Hz motors can be set to operate on 220V or 440V. A motor starting switch is included, and must be installed separately. Inquire for additional voltages. Totally enclosed motor has thermal overload protection. Safety guards and catch pan are included. Lubrication to shaft bearings is supplied by manually adjusted grease cups.
Pulverizers process materials through an opposing set of two 8in (203mm) Grinding Plates. The plates are available in a wide variety of materials with differing characteristics, and there is no standard process of selection for applications. Choices are made based on experience and requirements for service life, efficiency and concern for cross contamination. Less expensive plates suitable for most materials usually have a shorter useful life and may contribute contaminants to the process during operation. Plates of Ceramic or other hard materials are much longer lasting and add very little contamination, but are costly up front. Please contact Gilson’s Technical Department
for expert advice on your application. One LCA-6 Iron Alloy Grinding Plate Set is included.
