Grinding Media

Zirconium grinding media is used extensively in the paint and coating industry in basket mills, bead mills. Using the correct size bead is an integral part of the paint/coating process. For instance, on a basket mill depending on the viscosity and thixotropy of the material being ground, it is crucial to use a screen compatible for the size of bead being selected. This means that the pigment particles passing through the basket are constantly broken down with each pass on a basket mill. We are looking for number of passes through the basket rather than a tighter grind as on a bead mill. Normally a basket mill set up in the right configuration is 3x times faster than a conventional bead mill.  We can offer trial facility if you are interested in learning more about this method of manufacture and achieving maximum production.
