Steel Ball Mills

Benefits of Tumble Milling: 1. HIGH EFFICIENCY – Due to the relatively slow rotational speed but large mass of media, more of the energy goes into milling (more...)

Ceramic Lined Ball Mills

Benefits of Tumble Milling: HIGH EFFICIENCY – Due to the relatively slow rotational speed but large mass of media, more of the energy goes into milling and less wasted as heat. (more...)


Slice Mill™

Slice Mills™ are identical to the Ball Mills and Ceramic Lined Mills in diameter and design The only difference is that they are as little as 12” in length. Since mill diameter dictates performance and mill length only affects capacity, Slice Mills™ are used to develop or test formulations with little concern for scale (more...)

Pivoting Jar Mills

Another option of rotating any type of ceramic or steel jar is to have one or more jars held in a pivoting frame that rotates on trunnions mounted on bearings. This design allows the vertical loading and unloading of jars without having to lift a heavy jar on and off rollers. Separation grates can be provides to separate the milled product from the grinding media. Materials: (more...)


Jar Rolling Mills

ABBE Jar Rolling Mills are designed to support and rotate our steel and ceramic jars individually or several at a time. The smallest bench top model, can handle 1 or 2 jars. The largest jar roller can have as many as four levels or tiers and from two to five rolls per tier. A "League of their Own" - These are not hobby shop tumblers or light weight rollers found in laboratory supply catalogs. ABBE Jar Rolling Mills are heavy (more...)

Milling Jars

There are almost as many types and sizes of Abbe Milling Jars as there are applications. Abbe Jars are available in a wide range of sizes and materials. Milling jars are small scale version of the ball mills and are typically used in the laboratory or small scale productio (more...)
