Wet type microbead mill for grinding and nanoparticle dispersion, especially for dispersing nanoparticles with low crystal damage.
Dual Apex Mill (DAM) is a dual-axial wet type bead mill equipped with a centrifugal bead separator and an agitating rotor, which are driven independently, with a high flexibility in the agitating rotor revolution.
For low crystal damage on nanoparticles, it is necessary to rotate the agitating rotor at a low speed and to use microbeads at the same time. However, the slow rotation results in decrease in centrifugal force, and therefore, bead leakage easily occurs. Dual Apex Mill solves this problem by adopting a dual-axial system of driving the agitation rotor and the bead separator independently. The dual-axial mechanism allows a low speed agitation and a highspeed bead separation at the same time, so that nanoparticles are dispersed with a low crystal damage by applicating microbeads and slow rotation of the agitating rotor. As this model has a large freedom of the agitating rotor’s rotational speed, it is possible to rotate the agitating rotor at high speed too. Thus, this model is applicable for micron size grinding too. High power for grinding and moderate power for nano dispersion are handled by a single mill.
Two models available are a single motor coaxial type for mass production, which does not require seldom speed change, and a double driving axil type for operation requiring frequent speed change.
