ROSS: Three-Roll Mills
Three-roll mills are available from this company in a wide selection of capacities and features that are reportedly suitable for handling any laboratory application. Shown here is the 5 x 12-in. model with hardened carbon steel 52100 precision ground rolls, each cored for water cooling and heating. Standard handwheel controls reportedly feature a quick release/reset engagement mechanism for easy operation and accurate repeatability, while a trip switch across the top of the mill can help ensure operator safety. Mounted to a heavy-duty free-standing base, the 5 x 12-in. three-roll mill comes with adjustable bronze endplates and a stainless steel apron. A pre-programmed control panel is shipped loose with the mill for on-site installation.
Options such as hydraulic roll adjustments, hardened stainless steel rolls, coated rolls (in aluminum oxide, chromium oxide or tungsten carbide), Teflon endplates, special roll setting gauges, analog position indicators, stainless steel sheathing and explosion-proof controls are reportedly available.
