Standard model applicable to treatment with micro-beads, minimum size 15μm in dia., for nanoparticle grinding and dispersion.
Adopting a centrifugal separator for bead separation, the first in the world, this micro-bead mill can use beads of Φ15μm to 1 mm.
Processing using microbeads of Φ0.1mm or smaller provides dispersion of slurry containing fine particles of 100nm or finer, such as fine inorganic powders, for example crude material of ceramics, electromagnetic materials, optical materials, etc. and pigments.
Among our bead mills, this model is the most widely applicable nanoparticle disperser; we have conducted several improvements on this model for widening its applications in these 20 years. This is the most suitable bead mill for dispersion processing submicron to nano-sized particles in general use.
It contributes to the technical progresses in the nanoparticle processing of barium titanate, organic chelate pigment, liquid crystalline coating agent, etc.
This bead mill can also be used for grinding of submicron to nano-sized materials since relatively large beads of Φ0.5 to 1mm can be used, thus this is a multirole bead mill. We also have sold units of this model for grinding API pharmaceutical crude chemicals of 200 nm or less. By inventing a micro bead separator utilizing centrifugal force, the first in the world, we have been awarded “Award for Prominent Master of the Manufacturing” and “the Science and Technology Award for Invention” from the Japanese Government.
