Abstract: The concept of centrifugal milling is old 1. In this concept, the forces in the charge inside the mill are increased by operation of the mill in a centripetal instead of in a gravitation field. Comminution is more rapid, and the size of machine needed for a given milling duty is therefore reduced. A smaller machine would cost less to build and install, and maintenance would be simpler. In this paper, an outline is given of a detailed study of the centrifugal milling concept. This study gave rise to a cooperative development programme between the Chamber of Mines of South Africa and Lurgi. The outcome of this programme is a 1000 kW machine, which has been tested satisfactorily on a South African gold mine.
