Principle of Operation

  • Size reduction in the LAG490 takes place by impact effects.
  • The feed material passes from the hopper directly into the centre of the grinding chamber, where it is caught by the cross beater and ground between the baffle plates of the cross beater and the toothed grinding insert.
  • As soon as the material is smaller than the aperture size of the bottom sieve used, it passes through the sieve and enters the collecting receptacle.
  • The air drawn in through the hopper by the cross beater accelerates the discharge of the ground material.
  • The airborne fine fraction is separated off by a downstream filter system.
