Agitator Bead Mills
Agitator Bead Mills are engineered to manufacture lighter, smaller, more-resilient and stronger materials in a versatile, high-energy, high-flow system design. Grinding with these bead mills is a top-down process, where particles with an initial fineness of 1 to 20 micrometers are milled to an average fineness of 40 to 200 nanometers using various types of grinding media. In an enclosed vessel filled with grinding media, the agitator shaft in the mill activates the media, creating shearing and impacting forces. The rotation of the agitator imparts energy to the surrounding media. These forces then act on the solids suspended in a liquid and either fracture, tear or crush the particulate, resulting in overall reduction in particle size.
