Cranston Ball Mill

Published 12/14/2016

We are pleased to announce that the Patterson (manufacturer brand name) ball mill is operational and the first customer lot was successfully completed.

The Patterson mill is located next to the Thermal Reduction furnace at the Sharpe Drive facility in Cranston. 

It is twice as big as the largest ball mill in either Cranston facility and incorporates a number of system improvements over previous units including a unique soundproofing blanket and ash cart transfer mechanism. 

This project was completely designed and fabricated by our staff on site.  

It was a large undertaking with the bottom of the third tier platform at 21 feet in height. 

All the steel structure, platforms, and stairways were created from steel stock (and some imagination), assembled for fitting, then taken apart and painted before installation.

Special thanks to our employees who worked on this project, for their input and hard work on this challenging task. 

 

Please contact your sales representative if you would like to schedule a visit to our facility and see the equipment in operation.
