Ceramic Media

There are many things to consider when selecting a media type for your process. Required finish, machine size, shape, size and weight of the part to be treated. Various types of media with varying amounts of abrasive are required for each process.

Dalton manufacture a variety of sizes, shapes and abrasiveness to meet your required finish. This ensures the right media is available for each application. Sample tests can be done at our test lab to ensure the correct product is found for your operation.

Ceramic Grinding Media for Grinding, Mixing and Dispersing

Ceramic media is recommended for general purpose polishing, light and heavy deburring, fast and extra fast deburring and ultra-aggressive metal removal. Ceramic media is best for heavy cutting and hard metals. Ceramics offer the best selection. Ceramic media supports very heavy parts better than plastic media.

Ceramic grinding balls and linings are suitable for applications where highly efficient grinding must be paired with low grinding media abrasion. Non-ferrous grinding is absolutely essential in many processes, for instance in medical or pharmaceutical applications, in order to prevent undesired impurities in the grinding materials used.

Ceramic grinding media are also suited for use in processes where mixing and dispersing effects play an important role. In the majority of these grinding processes, steatite and alumina are the most common ceramic materials used for grinding and deburring media.

Our ceramic media is available in a wide range of dimensions to meet the requirements of the often highly specialized grinding processes and equipment used in this industry. Grinding beads for use in agitator bead mills are manufactured using steatite and alumina.
