Mill Refurbishing and Rebuilding
Steel ball mills and ceramic lined mills will eventually need to be refurbished or relined. We can evaluate your mill and do anything from relining with ceramic brick or polyurethane to check and rebuild the bearings and drives components including ring & pinion gears and reducers and motors. If the mill is old and has babbitted bearings we can machine the trunions and replace the old friction bearings with sealed roller bearings. Even old pebble mills with Burrstone linings can be relined with high-alumina brick. We tear out and dispose of the old brick, check the steel shell thickness, repair or replace and thin or corroded section and the install the new brick lining. We use only high quality, fine-grain 90% (or 96%) alumina brick with tongue and groove design. Bricks are secured and grouted with pure Portland cement or two-part epoxy.
