Zirconium Silicate Beads, Sintered

Zirconium Silicate Beads, Sintered

SZS Zirconium Silicate Beads are manufactured from world-class premium zircon (ZrSiO4) mineral in a special high temperature sintering process. Because of its outstanding breakage resistance and the advantageous price, this medium density bead is particularly suitable for use in large-volume agitated bead mills.

Until now, CHEMCO® SZS Zirconium Silicate Beads are successfully being used in all modern types of mills, which include vertical mills, horizontal mills, agitated media mills, stirred media mills, such as IsaMill, Metso Vertimill®, Metso SMD, FLSmidth® VXPmill, OUTOTEC HIGmill®, HOSOKAWA ALPINE agitated media mills, NETZSCH mills, Buhler bead mills, DYNO® mills, CMC Supermill PLUS®,  'Red Head' vertical media grinding mills,  Niemann Kreis-Basket-Mill®  Getzmann bead mill & basket mill, Vollrath bead mill, HCP Immersion mill, IEC basket mill & bead mills, just name of a few...

 Features

  • A medium density media particularly suitable for use in large-volume agitated bead mills

  • Fully dense, perfect sphericity and extremely smooth beads surface

  • No porous and irregular shape problems

  • Outstanding breakage resistance

  • Optimum performance-price ratio

  • This is the bead recommended to efficiently fine-grind zircon

Main Applications

SZS Zirconium Silicate Beads can be used in milling and dispersion of following materials, just name a few:

  • Coating, paints, printing and inks

  • Pigments and dyes

  • Agrochemicals e.g. fungicides, insecticides

  • Minerals e.g. TiO2 ,GCC , Zircon and Kaolin

  • Gold, silver, platinum, lead, copper and zinc sulfide
