Agitator bead mills are grinding machines for ultra-fine processing of solids in liquids. Their area of application covers the particle size range from 200 μm (max. 500 μm) down to the submicron (nanometer) range. With a comminution factor down to 1 : 10 000 (200 μm --> 20 nm), the application range is extensive and the variety of tasks extremely diverse.
The wetting and homogenization of solids in liquids, deagglomeration and dispersion, all the way to true comminution of primary particles make the agitator bead mill a universal wet processing machine. Depending on the product properties, various types of agitator bead mills with different grinding systems are employed.
