These components need to withstand significant mechanical loads and stresses, and using forged shafts can ensure the necessary strength and durability. The term "forged shaft" refers to a shaft that has been manufactured using a forging process, this process enhances the mechanical properties of the metal, such as strength, durability, and resistance to impact and fatigue.
Grinding Rollers wheel hub: The grinding roller wheel hub is a metal casting part that is mounted on the outside of the grinding roller shaft. The wheel hub refers to the central part of the grinding roller that connects it to the driving mechanism of the mill. The wheel hub is designed to transmit the rotational motion and force from the mill's drive system to the grinding roller, allowing it to rotate and exert pressure on the material.
Grinding roller tyre: The grinding roller tire of a vertical roller mill is a crucial component that directly contacts the material being ground during the milling process. It's also commonly referred to as the grinding roller or roller shell. This component is made up of a cylindrical shell or tire-like structure that rotates around a central shaft. The grinding roller tire is typically equipped with segments or studs that aid in grinding and pulverizing the material as the mill's table or bowl rotates.
Rocker Arms: The function of the rocker arm device of the steel slag vertical roller mill is to transmit the pressure provided by the hydraulic cylinder to the grinding roller, so that it can be transformed into the grinding force act on the material bed. The rocker arm device is mainly composed of upper rocker arm, lower rocker arm, rocker arm shaft, bearing and bearing housing and other components. The upper rocker arm is used to install the grinding roller, the lower rocker arm is connected to the hydraulic system, and the two rocker arms are connected as a whole through shafts, taper sleeves and taper pins.
Classifier: Powder classifier (also known as coarse powder separator) of the steel slag vertical roller mill plays a vital role in the selection of powder during grinding. The ground material is carried by the high-speed rotating airflow in the mill and enters the powder classifier through the stationary blades. The material is screened under the high-speed rotation of the cage rotor, and the screened fine particle material is taken out by the exhaust gas and enters the cyclone. The coarse particle material falls into the grinding disc through the lower cone tube for re-grinding.
Middle shell: The middle casing of the steel slag vertical roller mill is a welded structural part, which supports the weight of the entire separator. There are 4 inspection doors on the middle casing for roll overhaul. The door is designed with a sealing sheath that is in close contact with the grinding roller to Prevent air leakage.
