Universal Mill
Stone, Pin, Plate and hammermill attachments


The unique combination of plate mill, pin mill, stone mill and hammer mill, in one basic structure is an inexpensive solution to small millers requiring these functions. The various attachments and speed reducers are supplied in kit form whereby one drive unit is all it takes to, in turn, transform the plate mill into a hammer mill or a stone mill or a pin mill.

Without changing pulleys, a frequency inverter may be used to change the required speed of operation for the various applications. The hammer attachment mill is used for milling herbs or other coarse / large dry products. The plate mill is used for grinding grains and wet and particles, or non free flowing materials. The pin mill is primarily used for milling granular products into powders at low temperature, for example milling sugar into castor sugar. The stone mill is used for milling non granular materials into powders at cooler temperatures, and is used mostly in spice milling and as a final reduction in wheat milling. The machine can also run off of diesel or petrol engines - if required

The fineness of the milled product, when using the plate, or stone attachments, can easily be adjusted with the adjustment wheel on the side of the machine - which adjusts the apperture between the two plates. The pin mill however is not adjustable as the fineness is determined by the speed of the pins and the spacing of the pins.

To adjust the fineness of the milled product when using the hammermill equipment, the screen is changed. Screen sizes vary between 0.6mm apperture up to 25mm apperture.
