Technical beads

Grinding beads (ceramic)

Since 1854, Sigmund Lindner has established itself among the world leaders in the manufacturing of glass and ceramic beads used for applications such as the grinding of raw material. Our current range includes the various following beads :

  • Zirconium Silicate beads (Z)
  • Zirconium Silicate beads high performance (ZS)
  • Zirconium oxide beads Yttrium stabilised (ZY)
  • Zirconium oxide beads Yttrium stabilised  premium quality (ZY Premium)

Zirconium silicate beads for grinding SiLiBeads Z

The zirconium silicate beads are often preferred above glass beads for their greater wear resistance.
Their more important unit weight gives them a higher grinding capacity.

  • Beads adapted for the grinding of viscous products.
  • Density = 3.8.
 
   

High Performance zirconium silicate beads SiLiBeads ZS

Zirconium silicate beads are produced by following a new
optimised manufacturing process. They are often preferred above glass beads for their greater wear resistance. Their more important unit weight gives them a higher grinding capacity.

  • Beads adapted for the grinding of viscous products.
  • Density = 4.1.
  • Excellent wear and breakage resistance
    (much higher than the type Z beads).
 
   

Zirconium oxide beads SiLiBeads ZY / ZY Premium

High performance zirconium oxide beads, Yttrium stabilised.

  • Beads with very high grinding output.
  • Density higher than 6.
  • Excellent purity and sphericity.
  • Exceptional wear and breakage resistance.

The ZY Premium beads are especially manufactured for the most demanding applications.
