Type ME

The mill type ME is designed for grinding of dry and free flowing products as well as for fat containing or high protein products, and also for high fibers.

The ME series comprises of three sizes and a range between 132 and 450 kW for the drive.

Technical Details

  • Symmetric housing, allows operation in both directions
  • Swiveling inlet flap with proximity switches to change sense of rotation
  • Enforced impact plates at both sides of the mill inlet, exchangeable
  • Foreign body trap inside the grinding chamber, easy to clean
  • Special rotor design, run down time less than 6 minutes without brake
  • Six sieves fitted in frames, exchange single elements when worn
  • Change screens while machine is idle running
  • Automatic door locking system with stand still monitor
