High-Density Grinding Beads
June 1, 2006
Quackenbush Co., Inc.: "ZY" high-density yttrium-stabilized zirconia grinding beads offer a lower cost means of utilizing the performance advantages of a quality, 6.0 g/cc high-density ceramic bead. The beads offer shorter grinding times and longer life than lower-density ceramic media, such as zirconium silicate and zirconia-silica, which have a density of about 4 g/cc. Ideal for grinding thick, water-based products that have been "off-limits" to carbon steel balls and shot, "ZY" creates much cleaner grinds and does not discolor the final product. No pre-conditioning is required. Available in diameters as small as 0.2 mm, and as large as 2.0 mm. Visit www.quackco.com.
