FAQ

Q. How does the bead mill work?
A.

Sure, it is. The bead mills from LONGLY can provide continuous grinding over 24 hours, for both the type laboratory and production.

The Single-tank circulation is commonly used, with slurries continuously grinding for the specified fineness.

Circulation via AB tank is available. Once all the slurry finishes the grinding via the A tank, open the valve of the B tank for the second circulation, thereby reducing slurry deposition for the narrower distribution of particles in less unevenness.


Q. How to choose bead mill?
A.

When purchasing bead mills, the following are considerable:

1. Working performance: output fineness, particle size distribution, time on grinding, etc.

2. Equipment configuration: rotor structure, material of the rotor, separation method, power structure, etc.

3. Control system: operation mode, visual data monitoring, etc.

4. Maintainability: easy to clean, wear costs of grinding media, etc.

Among those with superior performance, the Dual Power Vertical Bead Mill LS-K Series from LONGLY is more representative.


Q. How much does the bead mill cost?
A.

The price for bead mills varies from differences in production process and grinding performance with the below factors:

Grinding Structure: Pin type>Turbo type>Disk type>Basket type

Material of Cylinder and Rotor: Determined by the properties of the grinding slurries

Processing Capacity: For Laboratory or Mass Production (Industrial)

Therefore, making the quotation tailored to customers’ needs with a detailed configuration list is better.

Q. What is the regular maintenance of the bead mill?
A.

Generally speaking, replace the lubricating oil of the bead mill every six months.

Check whether the rotation of the bearing is stable and whether there is any abnormal sound during the operation.

Check whether the connection parts are loose and whether there is oil leakage.


Bead Mills, as grinding equipment capable of continuous operation for a long time, whose regular inspection and maintenance can prolong the service life to ensure work efficiency


Q. How to choose the material for the rotor in bead mill?
A.

How to Choose the Material for the Rotor in Bead Mills?

1. Zirconia

Tough, wear-resistant, applicable widely, especially suitable for those with high color requirements or for preventing metal pollution

2. Silicon Carbide

Wear-resistant, corrosion-resistant, suitable for non-corrosive slurries water-based or alcohol-based

3. Tungsten Carbide

Wear-resistant, high temperature resistant, withstand strong impact and wear

4. Polyurethane (PU)

Low-cost, more suitable for water-based slurries than solvent-based

5. Wear-resistant Steel

Low-cost but the grinding material prone to metal impurity polluted

LONGLY provides bead mills with rotors of different materials to meet customer needs.


Q. How to select the rotor structure in the bead mill?
A.

There are many kinds of rotor structures of bead mill, mainly basket type, disk type, turbine type, pin type, and so on, while some combine several rotor structures.

1. Pin-type, the most popular, for ultra-fine nano-scale grinding, widely used in nano-materials, lithium batteries (such as LFP), electronic ceramics, pharmaceuticals, etc.,

2. Turbo-type, can reach hundreds of nanometers, suitable for those in medium and low viscosity, widely used in magnetic powders, pesticides, cosmetics, coatings, paints, etc.

3. Disc-type, can reach several microns, suitable for pigment, coating, and other suspensions, etc.,

4. Basket-type, can reach scores of microns, widely used in ink, dye, paint, coating, etc.
