● Pulverize materials such as grains, 1. Single Disc Attrition Mill
spices, sand, plastics, waxes, polymers 2. Double Disc Attrition Mill
and other ibrous materials by sliding, 3. Vibrating Disc Mill

grind grains and hard materials Advantages and Disadvantages
● Developed by the US Bureau of Mines ● Advantages: high level of strength is
(early 1960s): effective for producing required for hard materials (like stone,
paper-coating clay from coarse kaolins etc.), have a relatively larger capacity,
(clay mineral) relatively quiet than other kinds of mills
