Superior durability for longer product life
The sintering process used to manufacture CARBOGRIND yields a high Mohs hardness for greater durability and lower density. This translates into less equipment wear during milling, reduces final product contamination and lowers process costs. It extends the product life cycle, thus reducing media consumption and lowering the cost associated with transportation, disposal and replacement of materials.
Eliminates respirable silica dust exposure
Using CARBOGRIND reduces HSE concerns because it is chemically inert, non-hazardous and does not generate respirable silica dust.
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.
Improved grinding efficiency
CARBOGRIND is engineered for uniform particle size and shape. This reduces wear on mechanical parts of milling equipment, resulting in lower maintenance costs and less down time.
