Recycling

Energy efficient size reduction solutions (comminution) for traditional and new markets.

Where once milling technology could not efficiently handle non-economic materials the m-series has opened up a vista of opportunities in the area of recycling scrap. As well as efficiently milling hard materials such as metal oxide, bauxite, blast furnace slag, granite, glass etc., IIT milling technology is equally versatile for soft materials. In the construction industry, m-series mills enable surplus limestone (below 6mm) to be used as a cement replacement in concrete production.

IIT milling systems offer superb ‘green credentials’ and excellent opportunities for the recycling markets including:-

Glass Recycling

Glass cullet before and after processing.
(Power consumed only 10 kWh/t).

Glass Recycling

The effective uses of recycled glass range from filtration, golf bunkers and fluxing agent for bricks to use in building materials. Previously, milling costs prohibited its use, but m-series mills can reduce glass cullet down to sub 75 micron powders extremely cost effectively.

Limestone

Limestone before and after processing.

Limestone

Limestone, below 5mm is often in surplus within the quarrying industry with sometimes many thousands of tonnes stockpiled. Economical milling to sub 45 micron allows this material to be used as a cement replacement in the production of concrete.
