Process for reducing the grain size of phosphate rock

Only coarse grained phosphate rock with a grain size of over 2 mm arrives in the plain-roller grinding mill. The plain-roller grinding mill is operated with the rollers running at different speeds in order to achieve a self cleaning effect of the rollers by virtue of the difference in peripheral speeds in the gap between the rollers.
