CARBOBEAD high-performance ceramic media

The CARBOBEAD family of high-performance ceramic media technologies is engineered to provide a unique combination of consistent thermal, physical and chemical properties. These characteristics provide economic and performance advantages in a wide variety of applications compared to sand and other competing synthetic media types.

CARBOBEAD Applications

  • Abrasives: blasting, peening, cleaning, paint removal, deburring, lapping and etching
  • Filtration: water filtration and absorption
  • Mine Supports: mine and tunnel roof support
  • Heat transfers: solar falling particle receivers and circulating media fluid bed heat exchange systems
  • Catalysts support: high surface area catalyst media
  • Artificial turf: infill for sports and landscaping
  • Equestrian sand


  • Consistent, high-quality, engineered ceramic media
  • Exceptional roundness and sphericity
  • Superior strength and durability
  • Chemically inert, non-hazardous and produces no respirable silica dust
  • Cost effective alternative to sand and competing ceramic media
  • Available in a range of sizes and densities to meet the needs of a wide variety of industrial applications
