Wilhelm Niemann to present Kreis-Basket-Mill-RS 'annular gap' for the first time at Middle East Coatings Show


Niemann will present the Kreis-Basket-Mill®-RS for the first time at the upcoming Middle East Coatings Show (MECS).

The new machine belongs to the category of the basket mills and is especially suitable for the production of pigment pastes, industrial coatings, flexo printing inks and other products that are difficult to grind.

Managing Director, Frank Niemann is proud to be the first manufacturer on the market to produce an immersion mill with annular gap technology.

After the successful test phase, the first series machine KBM-RS 411 with 45 kW driving power and a container volume of 800 litres was presented on the occasion of the ECS.

The Kreis-Basket-Mill-RS offers all the possibilities of a classic basket mill and extends these with the advantages of the annual gap technology, with which the finest grinding up to nanoscale is possible.

Due to the low grinding chamber volume, up to 60% less grinding media are required.

The grinding media movement is made by a rotor with pins, whereby an extremely high energy density can be achieved in the annular gap.

The optimised ratio between the cooling surface and the grinding chamber also has a positive effect on the process times during the production of products, which are difficult to grind.

The slim grinding chamber makes a high energy density possible and immensely improves the cooling ratio.

In contrast to the classic basket mill, up to 60% of the required grinding media quantity can be saved.
