Quality Index of Multi-Disc Grinding Process of Grainy Biomass

Open access


The main aim of the grinding process is size reduction. For such formulated purpose of grinding, the particles dimensions after grinding process are the major quality determinant indicated in many works concerning size reduction. In this paper original quality index integrating size reduction and energy consumption in the grinding process was proposed. The aim of the study is to create method for grinding process quality assessment. The problem was formulated as a question: (1) is it possible to create mathematical description of grinding process quality? (2) what grinding parameters influence on the grinding quality index? To resolve the problem, original quality index was developed and experiment on a multi-disc mill was conducted. On the basis of obtained results it was found that discs angular speed affects the grinding process quality.
