Hockmeyer Equipment’s fifth patent covering immersion mill enhancement has been granted by the U.S. government.
HARRISON, NJ – Hockmeyer Equipment’s fifth patent covering immersion mill enhancement has been granted by the U.S. government. The patent covers the deterrence of wear at a bearing construct in a basket media mill.
The device involves the introduction of slots in the rotating peg hub within the basket. As the hub rotates, centrifugal force pulls the media and feedstock away from the polymer-bearing construct within the peg hub. This creates two favorable conditions. One result is extended bearing life regardless of the media type or size; the other is the elimination of micro media escaping through the clearance between the rotating drive shaft and the bearing construct. Bearing life, typically six months to one and a half years, has more than doubled.
