Application of grinding balls / beads and co.
In nearly all fields we meet products that are produced of completely different raw materials. Besides the chemical interplay also factors like size, density, state of aggregation a.s.o. have to be made „uniform“, that a homogenous product comes into being.
This is all the more important, the finer the final product should be. Coatings, pastes and fillers consist of insoluble, fine pigment- and powder particles. To homogenize these single components the raw materials will be dispersed in ball- and pearl mills.
Thereby mechanical energy is transferred from the grinding bodies to the dispersion. The twist- and shear movement of the balls „breaks“ the particles in finer particles, compensates chemical conditioned forces of attraction and removes surface air to distribute binding agents evenly. So a constant suspension with a balanced distribution of the single components arises.
We have the suitable grinding bodies for the multiplicity of applications like paints and varnishes, paper- and electronic coatings, pigments, as well ingredients for pharmaceutical and cosmetic products as food- coating- and filler masses.
In an optimum way ceramic pearls meet the requirements for high grinding efficiency at shortened grinding time, more fineness - till nano range - lower wear and prevention of impurities in the grinding goods. All over where mixing effects and dispersing works are well to the fore ceramic beads convince by shock resistance and low wear.
Glass beads are successfully used as grinding bodies. The with perfected technique absolutely round produced glass beads are specially elastic, lead-free and made of chemical neutral glass. Based on its absolute food- and colour genuineness glass beads offer universal application possibilities in nearly each pearl mill.
High specific weight gives an ideal component to the steel grinding bodies. Decisive for the use of steel grinding balls is the material to be ground and its use purpose. Steel balls are also used in medicine and at aggressive media like acids and lyes.
