DISPERMAT® SL bead mill
Horizontal bead mill for repeatable fine grinding for laboratory and pilot plant.
Option: Explosion-proof according to ATEX
DISPERMAT® SL laboratory and pilot plant mills are closed, horizontal bead mills with high output and extremely low dead volumes in the mill base inlet and outlet pipes. During the dispersion process, the product is fed through the horizontal milling chamber and continuously dispersed. The DISPERMAT® SL bead mill can be used for the pass as well as for the re-circulation process. After dispersion, the integrated air pressure system presses the remaining mill base out of the milling chamber which allows an complete recovery of the dispersed material.
Due to minimised dead volumes even the smallest quantities can be dispersed with high yield. Thus, the DISPERMAT® SL is an ideal tool for research, development and quality control. Also, larger quantities can be processed within a very short period of time. In order to minimise the product loss, the mill base is transported directly from the supply vessel into the milling chamber. The dispersed product passes through the mill base separation (dynamic gap) and is recovered either in a vessel (pass method) or flows back into the supply vessel (re-circulation method).
Wet milling from 50 ml to 50 l
- Quick and cost-effective of new formulations due to exact repeatability of dispersions.
- Quick and reliable transfer of laboratory development into production because of quantitative knowledge of the required mechanical power input.
- Quality control and assurance of production.
- Efficient control of incoming raw materials by measuring product properties relevant for the application.
The multi-purpose bead mill DISPERMAT® SL:
- One-pass-procedure and continuous pass procedure
- Circulation procedure with integrated pumping- and stirring system
- Dispersion of flowing and non-flowing products
- High mechanical power input permits processing of difficult to disperse products.
Diagrammatic view of the bead mill DISPERMAT® SL:
The milling system is made of wear resisting, high-alloy special steel. As an option it is also available made of:
- No metallic abrasion
- No colour deviation
- Very good caloric conductibility
- No metallic abrasion
- Good caloric conductibility
- Suitable for high abrasive media
The bead mill DISPERMAT® SL is supplied with VITON (FKM – rubber) O-rings as standard. Alternatively EPDM (ethylene propylene) O-rings can be fitted at no extra charge. If VITON or EPDM is not compatible with the products being milled, O-rings made from one of the following perfluoroelastomeres are recommended: KALREZ®, CHEMRAZ®, PERLAST®.
