Centrifugal Mills

A centrifugal mill is a mechanical device used to grind a substance into smaller pieces or completely to a powder-like consistency. Balls or other objects are placed in the mill and the mill is rapidly rotated. The centrifugal action of the mill causes the substance and the balls to be thrown to the outside of the milling chamber and the resulting impacts are used to crush the substance being processed in the mill.
