Anode Material Graphite Grinding & Shaping System


Particle surface shaper is a controlling equipment originally developed according to different particle surface requests, such as spherical multi-prismatic shape, high aspect ratio, slenderness ratio, etc., to control the particle morphology. We now have developed Jet Mill shaper and Impact Mill shaper to meet different material shaping requirements with various properties and have a good application in shaping graphite, diamond, carborundum, mica, wollastonite, etc.

Our shaping mill is specially designed for graphite anode material to improving the tap density and reduce the S.S.A (specific surface area) of the spherical graphite. It should process the ground graphite from our mechanical impact mill base on batching type. Apart from graphite, it can be also used to shaping different material such as diamond, mica, carborundum, wollastonite, etc.

Shaping mill

Shaping Mill Working principle:

The crushed material is fed to the shaping chamber of the main machine by the quantitative feeding device, and the material particles are collided and squeezed by each other for a certain time. After the certain time, the shaped material is separated into qualified product and fine powder through the classification wheel. The qualified product will be collected for next process.

It is a high-speed impact mill to perform ultrafine milling by using the high-speed rotating hammer to grind materials, the ground materials will be brought to high-efficient turbine classifier; the coarser particles will be swirled back to grinding chamber for further grinding. Our impact mill is mainly used in battery materials grinding including cathode raw materials such as  lithium cobalt oxide (LCO), lithium manganese oxide (LMO), nickel cobalt manganese oxide (NCM), nickel cobalt aluminum aluminate (NCA) and anode materials including natural graphite and artificial graphite. The system is available for grinding battery materials with different particle size requirement.

Impact Mill Working principle:

LNI Impact Mill is a high speed impact mill to perform ultrafine milling by using the high speed rotating hammer to grind materials, The ground materials will be brought to high efficient turbine classifier, the coarser particles will be swirled back to grinding chamber for further grinding and the exhaust gas is discharged by the induced draft fan.
