Ball Mill Motors

Electric Ball Mill Motors

Ball mills are frequently used in applications in which minerals are ground or blended.  These machines depend on a steady source of motion to function properly.  For outstanding reliability, turn to Louis Allis, an industry-leading manufacturer of electric motors for ball mills. 

Used in industries ranging from cement to coal to textiles, the general notion behind the ball mill is quite straightforward: the material to be ground down is placed within a drum filled with balls made of a harder substance than the material being ground (balls may be manufactured from anything ranging from rubber to stainless steel).  As the drum is constantly rotated, the balls act as grinding media that reduces the material down to the desired consistency, sometimes even down to a fine powder.

Electric Motors for Ball Mills

While the earliest ball mills were driven by steam power, today ball mills are driven by electric motors, and operators depend on those motors to run as efficiently as possible with minimal downtime.  Louis Allis, a worldwide leader in specialty electric motor manufacturing, has developed a range of repair solutions for all major brands of ball mill motors, along with first-class purpose-built electric motors specifically for use in ball mills. Rather than use off-the-shelf electric motors from another application, Louis Allis produces high-voltage electric motors built specifically for use in ball mills. 

Ball mill motors are generally very large and costly to remove for service. Louis Allis has extensive experience in performing in-place refurbishment, repair, and rewind services on ball mill motors regardless of the motor OEM.
