DISPERMAT® bead mills

Fine grinding with bead mills

A bead mill is needed when the required dispersion result cannot be achieved on a high‒speed disperser. A bead mill will further break down the solid particles and improve the dispersion result.

  • Wetting the surface of the solid particles
  • Mechanical break down of solid particles to a smaller size
  • Stabilization of smaller particles generated during the milling process against reagglomeration

A bead mill differs from the high‒speed disperser used to prepare the millbase by using small ceramic beads to mechanically break down of solid particles and improve the dispersion result. A bead mill consists of a milling chamber containing small ceramic beads and a milling rotor that is driven by a motor.

The dispersion result is affected by the speed of the milling rotor, the size of the beads and the speed at which the product is passed through the mill. A bead mill can be used to disperse the product in either a single pass, or several individual passes, or be set up to continuously circulate the product which is known as re‒circulation milling.

Explosion‒proof bead mills
All DISPERMAT® bead mills are also available in an explosion-proof version according to ATEX
