CARBOGRIND high-performance low-density ceramic grinding media is engineered to provide a unique combination of thermal, physical and chemical properties. CARBOGRIND features a low-density similar to silica sand, but our sintering manufacturing process results in superior strength and wear resistance with a consistent particle size and shape. These characteristics provide economic and performance advantages.
Greater performance and value than silica sand
- Reduced product contamination
- Reduced equipment wear
- Lower equipment maintenance costs
- High grind efficiency
- Longer product life cycle
- Enhanced brightness
- Chemically inert and non-hazardous; contains no quartz silica
Superior durability for longer product life
The sintering process used to manufacture CARBOGRIND yields a higher Moh’s hardness and greater durability than silica sand, combined with less media and equipment wear. This reduces final product contamination, thus lowering process costs. It extends product life cycle, thus reducing media consumption and lowering the cost associated with transportation, disposal and replacement of materials.
Volume/cost advantages of lower density
- Lower cost per volume:
On a cost-per-volume basis, low density media can be 4-10 times lower in cost versus intermediate to high density ceramics.
- Reduced transportation costs:
Lower density products provide significantly more media per pound shipped.
- Reduced labor costs:
Lower density media allows more efficient mill stops and restarts without the need to offload material.
Ideal for vertical milling
The unique chemical composition of CARBOGRIND produces the durability and density that make it ideal for use in vertical mill operations. It is engineered to optimize grinding efficiency in the mill, reducing input energy. The light-colored media yields the desired finish when light color and brightness of the final product are critical.
