Impact mills, accessories and construction
Impact mills are often used in mining and prospecting. They may be manufactured locally, and by doing it yourself (DIY).
Rock may be quickly crushed and gold particles separated by using many types of impact mills.
In rural locations of Tanzania and Uganda we are constructing such impact mills on the ground, as they seem to be the best firsthand solutions.
Only few parts such as flanged bearings are ordered from outside of the country or purchased somewhere in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania or in Mombasa, Kenya.
We carefully note all the locations where any machine parts may be purchased. Towns in rural areas do not have metal supply so we are looking for parts at scrap metal yards.
- Feeder for impact mill
This is feeder for the impact mill, shown from different side.
- Impact mills and classifier in the workshop
One can see here our favorite, for decades experienced metal technician who is leading the workshop in construction of our mining equipment. The program Start Your Own Gold Mine is conducted in East Africa, in Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania, and provide our clients with full SYOGM™ Gold Recovery Plant with 10 tonnes capacity per hour.
- Perforated metal screen used in impact mills
This type of perforated metal screen is used in impact mills with more or less opening sizes depending of the need.
- Feeders for impact mills
One may see the feeder mounted on one of the impact mills.
- The production of impact mills in our workshop in Croatia
This picture shows the production of impact mills in our workshop in Croatia. Each such impact mill may handle 500 kg of rocks per hour and more than that.
- The construction of impact mills for rock milling
On this picture one can see some details of the construction of impact mills in our workshop in Croatia, Europe. Each such impact mill has capacity of minimum 500 kg per hour, and may mill the rocks down to the powder as small as 50 mesh and smaller.
- The impact mills during the manufacture time
These are the impact mills during the manufacture in our workshop in Croatia. Each impact mill may handle about 500 kg of material easy, or even more with better classification or setups. They are manufactured by company's financed blueprints and engineered designs, and by technician with decades of experience.
- This is the pulley as used on our impact mills
This is pulley made in the workshop in Novska, Croatia. It is used to run the impact chain flail rock mill.
- The drum for the impact mill
This is the drum and hardened chains shown on picture.
- Our main workshop to produce gold mining equipment is in Croatia
This is our main workshop for 2018 for construction of gold mining equipment. It is located in Novska, Croatia. Mining equipment is transported by ship from Croatia to Tanzania or Uganda.
- Turner preparing the cover
This is turner machine that is used to prepare the covers for impact chain flail rock mills.
- The drum for impact chain flail rock mill
These drums are steel pipes cut in pieces to serve for construction of impact chain flail rock mills that are giving us the result of milled material of 50 mesh and smaller.
- Plan for the foundation of the impact chain flail rock mill
This is the plan on how to make a foundation for the impact chain flail rock mill. The rock mills we are using in the last step of rock processing.
- The rock crusher or impact chain flail rock mill
This is the view from above on the impact chain flail rock mill.
- Impact chain flail rock mill from behind
This is the impact chain flail rock mill from behind. It offers the opportunity to crush and mill up to 1000 lbs of rocks per hour.
- The screens of the impact chain flail mill
These are the screens as shown from inside of the impact chain flail rock mill.
- One of best crushers or rock mills also known as Beast
This is the rock mill or crusher, the impact chain flail mill for rocks and perfect for small scale mining. This type of crushers is able to process 1000 lbs per hour when properly fed, or half of it when fed more relaxed. It is good for an entry into the small scale mining and is used in the program Start Your Own Gold Mine.
- The heavy chains in hardware store in Busia
The heavy chains in hardware store in Busia may be used in the chain impact mill that may influence the gold recovery.
- Possible source for a drum
Such gas bottle can be cut in pieces and 2 drums could be made out of the cylinder. Yet the metal wall is not as thick as we would like it. We do not know if it is worth trying for US $19.22 how much the scrap dealer asked us that day, or approximately 70,000 Ugs.
- Not a choice for this drum
This piece of metal scrap was used in some other historical machine. The idea was to convert it to the drum for our impact mill, yet it would not work as this metal is not good for welding purposes.
- Possible drums for the impact mill
This is a possible drum for the impact mill. We are reviewing scrap metal supplies as no other source of metal is available nearby. Local welders cannot bend the metal properly.
