Abstract

Disclosed is a high speed toner jetmill rotor design and mounting configuration that allows the grinding anvils to be replaced and balanced without the need of welding and/or removing material from the rotor circumference. The correct and precise balancing of the rotor is critical to the function of the jetmill which rotates at speeds in excess of 4,000 revolutions per minute. Incorrect balancing results in extremely high vibrations and eventually destroying the machinery.
